Whether you in high school, college or reuniting after years, a friendcation is exactly what a group of friends needs to unwind and reconnect.
According to Siphesihle Penny Ndlela, the owner of travel company, Soul Traveller, many people opt to take a friendcation, where the aim is to spend quality time with each other and to have fun.
“Friends are looking for great places, great food, music and fun. They plan these types of holidays to enjoy shared moments that are intimate and special. Therefore, it's important for them to plan their experiences accordingly,” she says.
The most popular days for friendcation escapes are between Thursdays to Monday.
“Friends usually leave for their trip on Thursday afternoon and are back in the office by Monday morning. Despite just a day off, the weekend allows just enough time for the group to spend time with each other and a chance to rejuvenate from a hard work week,” says Ndlela.
