Whether it be underground clubs, high-end bars, or beach clubs- Tel Aviv should be on your wish-list if you're looking to go dance till the sun comes up.
Getting There: To get to Tel Aviv, you can grab yourself a ticket on Air India which does offer a direct flight. Though, if have reservations about the mentioned airline, you could take Turkish Airlines which offers a single-stop journey.
When you think of Eastern Europe, partying might not be the first thing that pops into your mind. But, locals among the Balkan nations can testify to the Serbian capital being a party-loving city.

It honestly doesn't get much better than partying on a beach. Imagine dancing away as the sun rises from the horizon covering the sky with a breathtaking streak of orange and red. Well, if you want to make your imaginations a reality, do make sure your way to the island of Boracay in the Philippines. With its white sand and gorgeous blue waters, partying at this mini-paradise is a thing of dreams.
Getting There: Travelling to this Filipino Paradise can be a tad bit troublesome with journey time sometimes exceeding 24 hours. There aren't direct flights connecting Delhi and Manila, Capital of Philippines, and you'll need to catch another flight to get to Boracay from Manila.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
While many of you associate Argentina with Barcelona superstar footballer Lionel Messi, this South American republic happens to be home to a very dynamic party hub. Offering an enthusiastic blend of singers, dancers, and musicians, you can keep yourself enthused with tango cabaret performances and live music.

So well known regarded as the "Clubbing Capital of the World", this Spanish island haven is your perfect vacation destination if you want to bask under the sun or party to no tomorrow. Top notch clubs like Pacha, Amnesia, El Divino are always ready to welcome new guests with open arms, though their entry fees (€50-70) are slight on the higher side.

The Land of the Pyramids is a fascinating destination if you wish to party to your heart's content.
