The best locations you could take off to for a relaxing weekend are those that have very little human habitation and Wayanad in Kerala is definitely one of those places. With the least density of population compared to other Kerala districts, Wayanad offers beautiful sceneries of the Western Ghats coupled with a lot of caves and waterfalls.

The now beautiful union territory town of the south, Pondicherry, was once a French colony and a list of vacation towns without Pondicherry is definitely missing its charm. The tree-lined streets and the colonial villas from the previous century create the perfect ambience for a relaxing weekend. The low prices of liquor in the union territory area only makes the sweet sweeter.

The one thing on everyone’s mind when you talk about relaxation is what Kasol is famous for, staring into the wildness of the mountains and sinking into your own thoughts. Situated in the Parvati valley on the banks of the river Parvati, Kasol is known for its amazing views and beautiful landscapes. Situated close to Kullu and Manali, it is a perfect spot for a getaway.

Vacations are not always about sightseeing and are sometimes about giving some time for yourself and clearing your thoughts. It is said that vacations are to relax and not to stress over the places you have to visit.
