Are you also brainstorming about where to go during the Diwali long weekend? Don’t worry, we have already done that for you. Doesn’t matter wherever you are in the country, we have figured places all the around India. So here are the places where you could celebrate Diwali or spend your long weekend this October.
Okay, Okay! I know, it is one of the most obvious destinations and you probably might have done this already. But remember the awesome time you had over there? Don’t you want to relive it and not just by seeing the photographs of it? So pack your shorts and flips flops and head to the most amazing place you’ve ever been to. And for those who haven’t already, what are you waiting for?
‘Yeh Haseen Vaadiyaan, Yeh Khula Aasmaan’ What could be better than spending a quiet weekend amidst nature? Those huge snow capped mountains and a river flowing between them with birds chirping all around is something I wouldn’t want to miss for the world. So if you stay in the northern region of India, pack your bags, gear up your vehicle and head towards Manali. And yes, don’t forget your helmets!
I was trying to choose among the amazing places this state has to offer. From Jaipur to Udaipur to Jaisalmer or even to Mount Abu, you can visit any of these places in Rajasthan for your long weekend. The rich culture and heritage will definitely win your hearts and while you’re there, don’t forget to try out their local cuisines.
Ah! The Scotland of India situated at the Western Ghats is one of the most beautiful places you’ll ever see. The sprawling coffee plantations and the smell of it will entice you to go there again and again. Stay at a homestay while you visit this quaint city for a much more authentic feel of the place.
