@ russ - try the hyatt in sharm. i stayed there with my brood and they all felt like bosses.
lazy river, big fuck off boss slide and lovely rooms.
was cheaper than the other boss hotels i stayed in when i went without the mini bosses.

Aqua Blu Hotel in Sharm, Water Park is sick!!

Also relax by the pool while the Chamack look a likes run some sick House music.

Dont be put off by the reviews by the English on Trip Advisor, cussing off the Russians.

Phil, check out somewhere like Bad Gastein. Easy transfer from Salzburg and not too expensive when you get there. Even better if you can get a late half board (or similar) deal. I'd avoid the mega resorts in France as well as Eastern Europe for the most part.

Split is expensive these days as is Dubrovnik, if you're not on a budget you should deffo go though.

I am thinking of going to Hvar at the end of september (work commitments) say the 22nd for a week.

Anyone been…clubs busy or is it a ghost town?

Hvar is a sick place man. Its warm enough around that time which should mean the clubs are ok. Might get some rain though. You sure you wanna spend the whole week in Hvar. Guess it depends on how many ships are running, I know it gets difficult in October. Why not go to Split instead? Easy enough to go from there for a few days in Hvar

Its certainly not a ghost town. Hvar is a very nice place, has some good bars. All quite expensive & filled with flashy eastern Europeans though. I went to a great bar on the sea front which played house, its just round from the bay in the centre.

I would recommend taking a few days trips to Mihet or Korsula. Mihet is an island with 2 national parks and its very quiet & secluded. You have to hitch hike around the island as there are no buses but the residents are very nice people.

not sure really. just heard decent things about it and ive got a manic holiday in asia coming in march so fancied a beach, drinks, clubs and girls!

and with it just being a week thought it might be a pain to go there for 3 days by ferry etc and then days back on the mainland.

how pricey is it? drinks food wise etc..

plan on staying in the Yacht Harbour or the Adrian Spa hotel.

Decided to put skiing on hold and just do a quick city break.

Is Copenhagen any good for a 3 night break at this time of year. What is there to do there, just shop/eat out?

Thinking of going mid March. Other options are Paris or Berlin

Cheers

Berlin is awesome if you've never been, plenty to do and see.

Cheers, yeah heard Berlin is meant to be good, but found a cool hotel in Copenhagen for a pretty good price.. so might pursue that first, that's if Copenhagen itself is good?

Yeah CPH is nice too (although Berlin is better Smiling)… just take into account that things like dinner/drinks/etc are more expensive than Berlin though. Which hotel in CPH by the way?
