What a steal!
For those of us who slog our asses during the week, weekends feel like bliss. But the two-day break does not leave us with many options. However, there are times when the weekend offs get extended because of national holidays and this is when everyone wants to make sudden plans.
Finding the right places and making a plan in a jiffy is tough. Also, budget might be a huge constraint when you are planning for a trip which you had not anticipated in the first place. Thus, we are sharing with you three amazing ‘long-weekend’ holiday suggestions which can be done in less than Rs 10,000.
Amritsar, from Delhi
Yes, head north to the city of the Golden Temple – Amritsar. The city is famous for its Dhaba culture and it is also a perfect destination to satiate all your touristy needs.
Take a stroll inside the Golden Temple complex or visit the Wagha Border; immerse yourself in history at the Jallianwala Bagh and also enjoy delicious Chole Bhature at Kesar Da Dhaba.
The package for a 3-nights 4-days trip will cost you around Rs 7,000 which is absolutely amazing.
Pondicherry, from Chennai
We now head south and have a suggestion for people in Chennai. Pondicherry is the perfect place to go for a long weekend in order to unwind. The city has the touch of French culture and boho-chic vibe; it also has beautiful beaches and some lip-smacking cuisines to try.
Head across and plan a 3-nights 4-days stay in Pondicherry including the travel and stay and the entire experience will cost you around Rs 5,000.
Kurseong, from Kolkata
Located in the lap of mountains, Kurseong is also known for its orchid gardens, green hills, gorgeous vistas, and tea plantations.
It is at a distance of around 30km from Darjeeling, and has the perfect setting for a long weekend holiday destination from Kolkata.
A holiday in Kurseong will not cost you more than Rs 8,000.
These are cost estimates based on basic travel and accommodation facilities. The cost may vary for people who wish to enjoy more luxury. Nevertheless, the long-weekend suggestions are value for money for everyone.
