The late autumn in Delhi leading to the winter is here. And trust me, this is probably the best season in the capital city. Though the smog has increased in leaps and bounds in the last few years due to stubble burning in the neighboring states of Haryana and Punjab, but once we pass that phase, it will be a delightful weather to enjoy.
The early morning begins with a nip in the air. A warm cup of tea feels pleasant. The evenings are chilly yet comfortable. And what’s better than traveling in this weather. You don’t necessarily need to take a mercury check of the destination be it Rajasthan or Goa and no pangs of carrying warm clothes as it’s not that cold. But wait! This year it’s the new normal. You cannot simply book a flight or train and head to Jaisalmer or Goa. Coronavirus cases are still rising. The government isn’t asking you stay home all the time, but traveling like earlier times is a big no. You need to take all precautions and travel. It’s okay if you are a young couple or a solo millennial but for people with families, traveling brings in a lot of handcuffs currently. And that’s where the experts are suggesting you take go on staycation, a weekend getaway to a nearby resort where you enjoy the luxe around. Basically, you indulge at the resort with food, drinks, swimming pool and a great spa. Take your family and friends and relish the short vacation.
This weekend, it’s Diwali. However, this year the government is discouraging people to burst crackers as the smoke afterwards can increase the breathlessness of Coronavirus patients. At such a juncture, when you cannot burst crackers nor could you party openly like earlier years, I suggest you take a fantastic staycation option. And where to go? Let me make it simpler. I shall suggest some options within two hours’ drive from Delhi NCR.
