Must-Try Activities When You're Travelling With Your BFFs | CoolJapan

Planning a group trip with your friends is fun. But sometimes, with varying tastes and preferences, it can be a bit chaotic to streamline the activities that would work well with everyone. So if you and your best pals are having trouble narrowing down your trip's to-dos, we're here to the rescue. Ahead, we've got the best group activities you simply can't miss when you're travelling with your BFFs. 

Go street karting in onesies all over Tokyo

Hitting the streets of Tokyo with your best buds soon? Add a fun twist to your trip by booking a street kart experience for your gang. How it works is that you and your friends get to ride your individual go-karts around the streets of Asakusa, Akihabara, and more along with a guide to headline your riding team.

But that's not all. What really adds the fun to this group experience is you also have to don character onesies like Pikachu, Super Mario, or a Minion during the duration of your trip — because would you expect anything less from the land of animé and all things kawaii? 

Ride the waves in the beaches of Indonesia

Indonesia is one of today's hottest hubs when it comes to beach trips. But while you're at it, why not tag your friends along for a nice surf? Whether you're wave-riding newbies or already seasoned surfers, it's a great way to reignite each of your competitive sides. And what's a friendly contest without having the loser treat the bunch to some drinks at the end of a long day? 

Take a heli around Hawaii

Like Indonesia, Hawaii is also known for great seaside adventures. But if you and your best pals want more besides sun, sand and sea, why not give a helicopter tour a try? Take your group trip to a whole new level — literally — and experience the island's lush greens and vast blues in a way that truly makes for great shared memories. 

Embrace your inner mermaids in Australia

Home to one of the world's most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Great Barrier Reef, Australia is one of the best destinations if your group is up for a lifechanging dive. It is said that one day isn't enough to complete the scuba diving experience in this natural marvel. So having your best gals along with the ride — or the dive, rather — will truly make this wondrous experience even more magical.

Tick all the boxes in your amusement park bucket list in South Korea

Are you and your girlfriends massive K-drama fans? Channel the vibes of the Weightlifting Fairy Swag Trio and hit South Korea's most colourful amusement parks — funky headbands, included!

Home to the likes of Everland and Lotte World, you can definitely challenge your best girls on who can take on the most thrilling rides. Or simply take turns snapping Instagrammable selfies by the parks' popping aesthetics. No matter how you spend your day, it's a foolproof way to get the most out of your group trip that has a little bit of something for everyone. 

Take turns modelling for a cultural photoshoot in Hong Kong

Being one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia, Hong Kong also boasts a lot of Instagrammable spots. But aside from groufies, taking a nice photo with your lot complete is almost impossible — unless you're constantly up to ask strangers to take your group shots.

Our suggestion? Head down to Sheung Wan or Central station near Hollywood Road. The street is lined with cultural photoshoot studios that offer myriad services that aim to elevate your HK travel snaps. Not only will you have a photographer take great photos of you and your group as you hit HK's hottest locations, but you also get to rent a cheongsam or a qipao to complete the experience.
