Staycations in India during the times of the Coronavirus pandemic!

Updated: Apr 26


Okay so I know all of us are so fed up sitting at our homes. Self-isolation has been really exhausting mentally, physically, and emotionally and well, you gotta agree that no "day outing" will help get the required peace and calm except for a nice weekend get-away. We don't have to go too far to rejuvenate our mind and body!

YES, we can do it in our own country! There are so many resorts and hotels all over India with some of the best facilities that are providing alluring deals to woo people to stay with them!


And well, what is more fun that being all touristy in your own country?!


So, while drafting the last post " 7 countries that will pay you to visit them after the corona-virus lockdown", it struck me that most of us will be interested in domestic travel rather than international vacation at the moment! Therefore, I compiled a list of stay-cations in India, along with stunning offers and deals you wouldn't want to miss!
