Long weekends are probably what we look forward to the most. If you’re someone who loves unwinding over the weekend at places closer to home, we have the perfect solution for you. If you live in Delhi-NCR, these staycations in Manesar are what you need! By Anushka Goel
Long office hours, unexpected work calls and endless days can take a toll on the best of us. No wonder, that we eagerly look forward to weekends (or the weekly offs) to unwind away from our phones and laptop screens. Another great way to unwind is to travel, which may not always be possible, especially if you have hectic work schedules.
However, travelling for short distances and opting for staycations is a great way to spend some time with yourself and your loved ones. If you live in metro cities, you’ll know of many hotels in and around the city that offer comfortable stays and lots of activities for you to enjoy. This is not all. Most big cities are surrounded by quaint towns and huge farmlands, that offer stays for you to unwind at and be one with nature.
When it comes to Delhi-NCR, there are a lot of places around where one can go and explore for the weekend. Cities such as Jaipur and forts such as Tijara are mere hours away from the capital city, and make for great weekend or one-day trips. Another such city is Manesar. The place has, over the years, developed into a destination merely an hour away from Delhi (and 30 minutes from Gurugram), complete with plush hotels, farmhouses, and even budget hotels, for you to spend a weekend away from the main city. This allows you to be close to home, yet away, nestled in a cocoon that allows you to rejuvenate, unwind and relax.
So, in case you are looking for staycations this August in Manesar that will help you make the most of the lush greenery and monsoon skies, we have the perfect recommendations for you!
