We take some important tips from KIX HD’s new travel programme to find out how best to enjoy a vacation with your ‘bros’
If ‘girls just want to have fun’ then guys just want to have more fun in every conceivable way! And when guys get together for a BROcation, any ideas about ‘better safe than sorry’ go flying out the window.
So instead of boring advice, here are six cool quotes to broaden horizons and offer some perspective for an even better experience:
#1: “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill
First things first, it’s all about the company and there’s nothing better than a BROcation to bond with your brothers from another mother…even if you didn’t know one another at the beginning!
#2: “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous
It can be tough to get away, especially when it comes to matching everyone’s schedule, getting the bosses to approve leave dates and booking flights and accommodation that everyone can agree with… but it’s totally worth the effort!
#3: “If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home.” – James Michener
In simpler terms, ‘do as the locals do’ – eat wherever you see locals congregating; shop where they shop to get the best, most authentic deals; talk to the shopkeepers, bus drivers and other locals you encounter to immerse yourself in being away. After all, if you stick to only what you know, what’s the point of going somewhere else? Check out The Ultimate BROcation to see how five Asian male celebrities enjoy their BROcation, including rapping and dancing with an old lady at Temple Street, Hong Kong – now, how much more ‘local’ can you get?
#4: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain
If there’s one thing guys are known for, it’s risky behaviour. Somehow, silly dares and macho challenges are a way of life for bros because they know exactly what to say or do that makes it impossible to walk away. Have fun in a “safe” way as you watch your bros’ backs!
#5: “Not all those who wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
Packed itineraries are all about quantity; what about quality? Schedule some down-time so you can explore, go off the beaten track and try something that’s not on the programme. It’s the hidden gems and unexpected discoveries that elevate a trip from a fantastic vacation to an ultimate BROcation!
#6: “All bros in the world should go for an ultimate BROcation in their lifetime!” – SonaOne
Malaysian rapper SonaOne recently went on his first BROcation with three other Asian male celebrities for The Ultimate BROcation, an all-expense paid trip tailor-made for bros…and loved every bit of it! From hobnobbing with the ‘right crowd’ at Lan Kwai Fong to chillaxing in nature at Repulse Bay to checking out the latest footwear at Sneaker Street aka Fa Yuen Street, the guys truly scoured Hong Kong for everything a guy can and should do! So what are you waiting for, guys? Get going on your own BROcation of a lifetime!
