That time of the year when you feel like skipping your office and going away to an enchanting place far, far away, is finally here. For an average joe living in a bustling city like Mumbai, holiday season comes with huge travel rush, and the best way to avoid it is to go for destinations with less hassles and more of enjoyment. Let’s take a look at some of the best getaways from Mumbai you should try this New Year’s.
If the holiday season has taken you in its grip, and you feel like moving out to a refreshing place like a green hill station or less-crowded beach, here are some fantastic places to enjoy your long weekends and holidays. Living in a city like Mumbai, where the New Year's parties are mostly confined to nightclubs and pubs, you might yearn for a fresh breath. Take a look.
Goa - Famous for its sun-kissed beaches and vibrant flea markets, Goa has always been on the radars of an ultimate traveler. So, why miss it this time? Planning a New Year’s holiday in Goa will take you away from your mundane work. You can either take a flight from Mumbai to Goa or plan a road trip to make it more memorable. Even if you’re not interested in going out for a party in Goa’s scintillating nightlife or attending the Sunburn, there are hundred of other things to do! Go drinking at a quaint, little shack or just enjoy a sumptuous dinner at one of the remote resorts, overlooking the sea. Goa will never disappoint you.
Ganpatipule - Ganpatipule is small beach town, located in Ratnagiri district and is known for its spectacular coasts and array of palm trees and mangroves on the fringes. An ideal destination if you feel like doing nothing at all, this small village/town attracts beach bums from all over the region. The slow pace of life and the calm atmosphere might throw you into retrospection and adamant for an enriching New Year's resolution.
Mahabaleshwar - This captivating land of strawberries and enthralling panoramic view, is located at close proximity from the city. If you’ve been thinking of visiting the hills on New Year’s, but find places like Lonavala too crowded, Mahabaleshwar is where you should head to. Away from the humdrums of city life, Mahabaleshwar’s farms and greenery will soothe you body and mind, making you ready to take the challenges of the next year. The town is also famous for shopping for local handicrafts and strawberries.
Pune - The second most populous city in the state of Maharashtra, Pune is an emerging metro. But is it really worth travelling to a city like Pune from a bigger Mumbai on New Year’s? The catch here is that during holidays when all modes of travel are choked, going to a familiar place is much beneficial. Plus, Pune has always been evergreen with its amazing lineup of exciting events and concerts like Bacardi NH7 Weekender. So, you can always take a Mumbai to Pune cab, and plan up a wonderful holiday!
