    I need a break.

    I have not had a decent break for quite sometime and I really feel I need it.

    As I am now single I will have to go on my own :mad:. My mates are either skint or have a Mrs. I have looked at singles holidays and they look boring as hell with people not my own age.

    Where do I go? I need time to relax, party a bit and enjoy good food and drink.

    :thumb:Vegas baby.

    Great place to go - even if you have no interest in gambling.

    Go for 4-5 days that'll be enough, then fly to New york for a week or so - then come back from there.

    Direct flights from Gatwick via Virgin

    Budget?

    Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos - either as a tour-type or do-your-own thing.

    If you let me know budget / timescales / interests I'll get Ali to see what's out there.

    I would second Vegas also, but I've just thought of another gem, New Orleans is a great place to have fun.

    Many people rate Thailand but it sounds like what you need is a "busman's holiday".

    I have left 4 litres of oil and a filter by the garage door. Drop the keys through the letter box when you've finished. Enjoy!!

    £1500 max for 10 days from the 18th.

    Quite fancy Vietnam. Must be relaxing with good bars/resturants.
