If you’re a crazy movie fan like me, and fell in love with Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, and dreamed about taking a trip to Manali with friends, let me stop you right there. Manali is beautiful, sure. It’s mesmerizing. But, it’s not how the movie portrays it to be.
It’s a perfect destination if you’re trying to get away from the city heat & pollution, a destination for the wanderers and the exhausted.
I’m not telling you not to visit Manali with friends, don’t get me wrong, anywhere you go with the ones you love, and the ones who bring out the crazy side of you – is inexplicably fun!
I visited Manali last year, with 6 of my friends. We rented a villa, and decided to reincarnate what happened in LEH, self-navigation, that is. We rented out motorbikes from RentSetGo. It’s easier to zip through the roads when you’re on a two-wheeler, than when you’re on a four-wheeler.
I went to a bunch of places; we explored everything that we could. We spoke to the locals, and asked them what their favourite places were, and what they did here for leisure.
From all the places I visited, here’s a list of a few you shouldn’t miss:
1. Piccadilly cinema:
So, Piccadilly cinema is nothing out of the ordinary, except for one factor: BEER! Have you had beer while watching a movie, in a legitimate theatre? No right? It’s because it is prohibited. Sneaking in Alcohol is fun, but there is an entirely new rush if you did it legally. Yes, you heard me right. You can purchase beer along with other movie-specific drinks and munchies.
It’s a uniquely weird experience. Trust me, if you’re of legal age, you absolutely should try this theatre and chug a beer while interesting yourself in a movie.
2. Naggar Castle:
