The online travel company, Make My Trip has curated a list of Indian destinations for professionals who wish to log in from elsewhere for their next work-related meeting.
“As people start to adapt to the new mode of working remotely, they have realised that the work can be completed from anywhere, be it from the hill, beaches or any other scenic location that the country has to offer,” said Make My Trip.
The company has observed an increasing trend of ‘workation’ (work+vacation) lately, and has witnessed a steady increase in inbounds from working professionals in Delhi and Bengaluru.
Following is a list of some offbeat locations that you can explore for your next workation:
Jibhi, Himachal Pradesh:
Located in Banjar valley, this is a lesser-explored Himalayan village. Jibhi is settled on the banks of the Tirthan river and is completely free from any form of commercialisation. De-stress yourself with alluring views of mountains and river while working.
Situated in the Malvan region, Tarkarli is known for its beautiful beaches and luxury resorts. Devbag and Tondavali beach are a few popular attractions. A wide river, beautiful sailboats, and tiny island hamlets add to the charm of this place. This seems like an ideal destination for a Zoom meeting.
Shimoga’s gushing waterfalls, majestic temples, lush green forests, and rich biodiversity makes it a popular spot among nature lovers. In addition, the place is also known for handicrafts, rosewood carvings, sandalwood, sarees with Kasuri work, and wooden toys made of lacquer.
Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu:
Another well-liked tourist destination in south India is Kodaikanal adorned by lakes, hills, and scenic vistas of valleys. The hill town is an ideal retreat to beat the heat of the metros. Take a hike (called Coaker’s Walk), cycle around the Kodai Lake, or explore the Pillar Rocks.
