It’s always a great idea to gather your girlfriends for an all-girls trip, as there are few other travel partners as fun as your girlfriends. Call it a bachelorette trip or simply a ‘breaking away’ trip, but pack your best OOTDs for an ultimate trip to the Palm Springs, Las Vegas and Texas and indulge in some fun days of unprecedented surprises and exhilarating experiences.

Palm Springs is for those who like their pictures Tumblr-worthy, are bohemians at heart, and love exploring the city on a bicycle! That’s right! When in Palm Springs, grab yourself a free cycle and ride around to see every part of the town. For a bit of a workout amidst nature and a whole lot of catching up with your girls, the hike through the Aerial Tramway Trails, The Cross, Indian Canyons and Bump and Grind are a few trails worth checking out.
After coming back to the city center, test your knowledge of your favourite Hollywood stars by taking a walk on the Walk of Stars, grab yourself some brunch at FARM, Cheeky’s Purple Palm or Jake’s. Follow it up with an intense shop-till-you-drop spree at the El Paseo Drive for over 300 stores including independent boutiques as well as high-end stores. Follow a day full of crazy activities with a rejuvenating spa with the girls at Two Bunch Palms Spa, Palm Springs Yacht Club or The Ritz Carlton Racho Mirage.
P.S. Look out for the VillageFest every Thursday with a farmer’s market atmosphere, live street music, entertainment and some great stalls to shop from.
Oh, Vegas! Can a set itinerary ever do justice to the madness that Las Vegas is? This paradise is best experienced and lived with the ones you call your own. From high-end spas, glam hotels, glitzy pool parties to the ever amusing casinos, Vegas never sleeps and is always awake for the party-lovers and go-getters. For those who like to party HARD, the Encore Beach Club is where you will find the most high-octane pool party you have ever experienced. If the DJ console has David Guetta on the other side, you know it is a party worth talking about to your grand kids!
A girls getaway without a spa for that glow on your face that reflects the mirth inside is incomplete. The Canyon Ranch Spa at the much-renowned Venetian is one of the best picks. Get your drinks from The Chandelier, whose two-million crystals will await your entrance — one fit for the kings. As for food, Bardot Brasserie and Jaleo are the absolute bests with their star chefs bringing to the table the wonders of global cuisine.
P.S. Consider getting yourself the old school Limo for a night of drinking, eating and partying. After all, there’s no place better than Vegas for some OTT extravagance.

The best way to wind up this HELLUVA girls trip is to sit back at one of the OG bars in Texas and contemplate all the years you have spend together more as soul sisters than just BFFs. While you could start your day with some canoeing or kayaking on Town Lake, the Ladybird hiking and biking trails are also fun when done together. Pack yourself some picnic and a bottle of wine to celebrate the trip and your friendship after hiking Mount Bonnell for a sunset that will be the best backdrop for your trip-end pictures.
If a brunch is on your mind, Cafe No Se, Irene’s, Eastside Cafe and Elizabeth Cafe are some of the best options. Swim at the fresh water pools of Barton Springs, rent yourself a Lime scooter for getting around, go food-truck hopping or go capturing the city’s fantastic murals as when in Texas, the sky is the limit.
