Being alone and being lonely are two different things, although they are used interchangeably. I have gone through both the phases in life and I believe that ‘being alone’ sometimes can be a blessing in disguise. The thing is that we often commit ourselves to work for our family, to be there for our friends, to be with our bosses and colleagues when they want us, but we hardly give time for our own self. When you’re alone, you get the time ‘to stop and think’ about what’s going in your life. Its like applying brakes to your fast life and observing your life in slow-mo. Anyways, I’m not here to talk about philosophies in our life, but about places where you can steal some time for your own. Most people would not associate travel with the word ‘alone’ because of course, who in the world would love to travel alone? However, if you are planning to take off to some destinations where you can find peace and where you can be just by yourself, these are the destinations that you should try out.
Do you love to travel abroad, but don’t have the right budget to do so? To be honest, I’ve seen many of my friends and colleagues talk about how desperate they are to travel abroad to spend great holiday time with their friends, family and life partner, but their limited income and household expenses do not really provide them the room to turn their dreams into reality. Well, I understand that completely because many of my friends have travel abroad and I’ve seen how much money it really takes to make that 10-15 days trip. On the other hand, when you return you may be short of cash and its back to hard work and hectic life. So, I decided to come up with a post that not just attracts Indian travelers, but also help international visitors to come visit India and explore locations that look like any other foreign locations, but at an affordable Indian price tag. Of course, those who have travel abroad would know that foreign locations are cleaner than the Indian counterparts, but my friend, you also got to keep in mind that you’re paying incredibly low for your trip, so you got to compromise somewhere.
So, here are 5 places in India that give you that feel of a foreign location at an Indian price.
Beaches have always attracted me more than anything else from the very early days of my life. Being in Mumbai, I love being at Marine Drive and watching the sun go down behind those skyscrapers that dominate the Malabar Hill area and I love to see the orange street lights glowing up that look like a pearl necklace in the evening time which is why Marine Drive is often quoted as Queen’s Necklace. India has 7,517 kilometers of coastline and that means that not just Mumbai, but many other parts of the country has beaches that can offer you great experience. Here we take a quick look at the top 5 beaches in India that are perfect for that evening romantic walk with your partner or with your family or friends. These beach destinations are among the best voted beaches in India and offer value for money experience.
The year is just about to end in next few weeks and I am really excited about Christmas that brings a special feeling to me. Even though, Diwali is considered to be the biggest festival in India Christmas is also celebrated with same enthusiasm as people clean up their homes and decorate their windows and interiors with lights and put up Christmas tree. Of course, in some parts of India like Goa the visibility of this festival is clearer than in other states, but even though people in other states do not celebrate Christmas in grand style most families look out for some places where they can spend their holidays. The word Christmas holidays itself can create so much excitement that I can’t resist getting out from my hectic schedule and wander in some of the best destinations that India has to offer.
Here is my list of places that can offer value for money holiday experience across India.
I have always believed that most couple would like to spend their honeymoon time in peace and tranquility where they can spend more time together and enjoy the space that they share that will deepen their bond together for the rest of their life. However, time has changed and couples today think differently when it comes to their honeymoon trips. Couples today sure want to spend some time together, but they also like to actively participate in fun activities and adventure sports that can make their honeymoon trip exciting and unforgettable. Taking that trend into consideration many tour companies have come up with better options at various places that newlyweds can explore. Many couples today prefer to take off for some adventure honeymoon experience where they can get some adrenaline rush as well as some private space. Let’s take a quick look at the top 5 adventure honeymoon destinations and places in India that offer the right kind of mixed experience.
The monsoon season is just about to end in the next few weeks and it’s time for many couples to share rings and flower garlands and go through all the traditions and customs that will bond them together for eternity. The concept of marriage in India is bit different from that in the West where the bond is contractual. Indians love marriages and Indian couples are always looking out for some great honeymoon destinations that they can look out for once they wrap up with all the band, baajaa, baaraat, and all the regional traditions. Many couples look out for international honeymoon destinations, but I believe there is so much more in India to explore you really don’t need to spend more. Believe it or not, India has some of the best honeymoon destinations with some of the best hotels and landscapes that can make your honeymoon memorable. Here I got you the top 5 best honeymoon destinations in India that have been popular for the kind of honeymoon experience that they offer, because first experience is always special and forever.
When its monsoon time in India, Kerala is the first state to welcome the rain Gods and in few weeks Kerala transforms itself into a heavenly abode. Kerala has always remained among the top tourism destinations in India where couples and families spend quality time that they can hardly find when they are busy in their urban life. In fact, I would certainly recommend people to visit Kerala more than visiting the Taj Mahal, because here in Kerala you get to be close to the nature. I believe this is exactly why most people take break because they want to getaway from their hectic lifestyle and live few days in a different way where they explore nature and feel that they are a part of this universe that surrounds them. While some might argue here that visiting Kerala during monsoon time is not the right thing to do because heavy rain can play a spoilsport, but I believe that’s untamed nature and sometimes you got to experience and enjoy that part of nature as well. It is hard to write about the unlimited holiday options that one can find here, but we take a quick look at the must visit monsoon destinations in Kerala that can offer you value for money experience.
