Slow-Mo is the new #FOMO...
Escaping the daily routine of hustle culture, and always trying to stay one step ahead, makes slower-paced travel more enticing and necessary to recharge. Slower paced travel also allows you to have fun and make the most of new and lively experiences.
In fact, according to Booking.com, 48% of travellers worldwide plan to take slower modes of transport such as trains and boats in 2020. With this in mind, what better way to escape the everyday and lose yourself in the moment than with a boat party?
Here are five of the best boat parties from around the world.
