Ah spring, the time of year when the sun comes out but it still continues to snow, only in Ireland of course, feel like you need a holiday and fast?

Then keep reading, here are the top 5 places you need to visit in college.

1. Budapest, Hungary

Not only is Budapest one of the most beautiful cities in the world it also won’t break the bank. From €4 meals to Airbnb’s you won’t be embarrassed to tell the folks about, a return flight from Dublin to this gem of a city will cost you under €200, talk about a bargain!

While you’re there be sure to check out the Buda Castle and the bustling nightlife.

2. Vietnam, Asia

Vietnam is a must see holiday while in college, not only is it cheap it’s also filled with culture, fun and of course history.

You can easily survive there for under €20 with gorgeous hostels for under €10 and the city right outside your doorstep. Vietnam is known for it’s nightlife from speakeasy cocktail lounges to beach bars this place has it all, for the best night out we recommend a trip to the Fat Cat Bar.

3. Amsterdam, Netherlands

It’s no doubt that Amsterdam is one of the greatest cities in the world not to mention one of the top destinations for travellers and it’s not hard to see why.

From cheap eats to sex museums, The Red Light District, the Van Gogh Museum and of course the Anne Frank House there’s lots to do here. Be sure to rent out a bike and have a ride around the city before hitting up one of the local cafes for a proper buzz, if you know what we mean.

4. Athens, Greece

Home to the Acropolis and the Greek Gods Athens is one of the most incredible cities in the world, filled with stunning architecture, food to die for and amazing tourist attractions on the cheap this city is a must see.

For first time visitors we recommend a trip to the Panathenaic Stadium it’s historically connected to the modern Olympic Games from the revival in 1896 until the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, just standing in the stadium will make you feel like you were watching the games with Caesar himself!

The food here is not to be missed and luckily for you guys a night out in Athens can easily be done on the cheap, bonus!

5. Cancún, Mexico

Cancún is a great place to go and blow off some steam and forget about those tough exams and college woes, a minute here and you’ll never want to come back.

While on your travels be sure to check out the
Cancún Underwater Museum it’s a great way to embrace your inner mermaid (or merman) minus the tail of course. Then when you’re done head on down to one of the local beach bars or head on over to Coco Bongo Cancún for a night you’ll never forget.
