Hen do in Barcelona in September

by Aneleh123

Hi,
I am organising my friends hen do in Barcelona in September. We are there for a weekend, arriving on Friday and leaving on Sunday. So far, we have no plans and need some ideas about where to go, what to do etc.
I am toying with the idea of a boat trip but need some guidance about whether this is on offer in Barcelona. Any ideas re good restaurants/clubs would be helpful too
Thanks

Hola,
I 've just retourned from my trip to Barcelona and it was wonderful!
It is one of the most beautiful cities, I've ever seen.
For me it was the best decisions to rent a car, for driving to all places when and where I want to! A boat trip is a good idea, but it is very expensive and it is not possible to visit all the sights int he centre of the city. So, in my opinion going by car is better for tourists.
I have good experiences of SIXT Rent a Car.
Good prices, service and cars!!!

by Belsaita

honestly, this is the first time I heard that hiring a car is a good idea in Barcelona. Even most of we locals avoid driving when possible!! maybe the poster above likes adrenalin shoots and paying a lot more to get stuck in traffic jams when you can usually can move faster and cheaper by public transport... or maybe she has something to do with this particular car hire company?? (new member, 2 posts, 2 promoting the same... I'm being too suspicious??)

but each at their own. especially when in just a weekend is not likely you are doing any daytrip to the places you really need a car, you actually have more than enough with the city itself

we don't know your likes and tastes... how to advice what is better for you?

you have tons of info on the VT pages about Barcelona. Regarding restaurants, giving us a estimated budget will help, as there are loads. As a general rule: visit Las Ramblas once and avoid eating or drinking there, is a huge tourist trap

what you have in mind as 'boat trip'? There are touristy boat trips departing from the bottom of Las Ramblas, called 'Golodrinas'. These may take from 35 min to 1:30h and costs 6-12 €

It may be a fun activity.

You can take the cable car from the seaside to Montjuic Mountain, do a city tour with the 'Bus Turistic', do a walking or bicycle tour around the Old Town, or you can just walk around and shop, you can visit many museums.. what you like to do?

I am going to guess that TanjaMed is somehow related to SIXT Rent-a-Car because I too can't think of why anyone would suggest renting a car to see Barcelona.

<< I too can't think of why anyone would suggest renting a car to see Barcelona >>

if not business-promoting, can be masochism ;o)

Belsaita,
LOL. Yeah, I guess that's another possibility.

Wanna eat cheap...?

by retsode

Hi there!

Born in Barcelona, and I think you could be interested:
-Always look for bars that offer 'menú'. That means a starter, a main course and dessert/coffe (pretty likely both) for around 8-9 €. That includes one drink, or if u ask for 'vino con gaseosa' (wine and soda), they usually leave the bottle.

Chinese restaurants are even cheaper (none of my friends from abroad ever belive it), but for the 'menú' you get three courses -starter, a plate of rice or noodles and a main plus coffe or dessert for....the cheapest I know is 4, 50 (four, yeah!), tought usually is around 6 €.

Beware that sometimes chinese can have a week day menu and a weekend menu (more expensive -around 9 €...avoid tourist traps and try to go to working areas (anywhere up the Ramblas past Pza. Catalunya, left of right would do nicely.

Bon apettite!

Shampoo, Hairbrush, for us ladies, bits of makeup (not much needed during holidays) and any medication would be advisable Your digtal camera is sufficient. Will write later on these subject Will write on this later.

The leisure mountain

by davidlop

All the mountain is full of good reasons for visiting it: from museums (including the MNAC) to the olympic facilities, botanic gardens, terraces and bars, exhibition centers, a millitary fortification, and many, many paths to just walk by and have nice views and relaxing time. On the city side, not far away from two venician twin towers, you may find eventually the so called Font Màgica (magic fountain), a great spot to see at night when some music+water performances are played (usually close to weekends or holidays, at about 21h, but better ask at some information desk); believe me, not to be missed if you have the occasion to meet there!

Xocoa - chocolate heaven!

by sue_stone about Xocoa

I have recently become obsessed with chocolate (nothing unusual for a girl I know!) and was delighted with a chain of chocolate shops I came across in Barcelona, called Xocoa.

After spending a few days avoiding the shops each time I passed one, I was then exploring by myself one day and gave in and popped into the branch on Carrer del Petritxol, close to Placa del Pi. Xocoa basically sell chocolate, though in many different forms. The window is filled with a display of hand-made-looking individual chocolates of all different shapes and sizes. Then there are the bars, with varying centres, and the colourful tins filled with a mixture of delicious chocolaty treats.

Everything looks so fabulous...it was hard to decide what to buy....and hard to stop at just two items!
