The best moment is when you are enjoying your own company, and sometimes being alone gives you so much happiness and helps you discover something which you couldn’t see. I myself love taking solo trips and it helps in becoming bold and active in many parts of our life. Travelling also makes you confident in many parts of your life.
I today am listing some best trips you can take under Rs. 5000 for some couple of days, sometimes due to the budget we discard the plan to travel. But, no matter whether it is travelling in India or European countries, travelling can be done in every budget. It is a myth that says you need a big amount of money to travel to the places you like.
The things which can be included in this budget range are a good stay, food, local travelling & sightseeing and some shopping of course. Budget travelling doesn’t necessarily mean that you compromise on safety and put yourself in trouble and risk. Budget travelling in other sense means exploring the places like a local, the locals don’t spend huge money every day, so you got the actual points.
