It’s Valentine’s already and you haven’t picked a single gift to express your love. Don’t worry there’s still time to choose a small token of your appreciation whether it is flowers, candy cards or even a greeting card to gift your loved ones. What happens if you cannot gift him or her? Does that mean you don’t love them?
Well, if ads around 14th February will make you believe just that. Yet, Valentine’s is not about expressing love on a single day in the year, it is about articulating love. You can do that all year through small gestures and planning Chota break with your loved ones. That’s what long weekends are for, isn’t it?
Going on a holiday during the Valentine week may not fit your budget, however, we at Kesari Tours have picked a few weekend holidays just for you.
Get away from the heat, stress, and fast life of the city with a short rejuvenating trip to Munnar Kumarakom. A stunning hill station in Idukki district, Munnar lies 5200 ft above the sea making for a wonderful respite from the scorching heat. You can plan a visit between September to November and January to March. Enjoy a speed boat ride on the Mattupetty Dam in Munnar. For nature lovers, there’s the dense Rajamalai National Park you can explore together.
Visiting Kerala without going to the backwaters is a crime. Kumarakom is one of the best places to enjoy Kerala backwaters. Dance the night away with others at the small party Kesari organizes. Take a relaxing longboat ride on the backwaters, enjoy the local food and the calm soothing waters. If you’d like to see birds then the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is just the place to see owls, egrets, herons, and the Siberian cranes. If you haven’t chalked out a holiday yet, plan one now.
Thailand Chota Break:
If you’d love to holiday in a friendly country that loves food as much as you do, then Thailand is just the place for you. A country that toes the fine line between historic and decadent with aplomb offering a treat for the cultured and the curious. Thailand draws visitors with a smile to its golden azure beaches, glittering temples, coral reefs, floating markets and so much more. On your Chota break visit both Bangkok and Pattaya.
In Pattaya, take a glass-bottom boat ride and see rainbow-hued coral formations. If you are adventurous, then parasailing is a must-try. A couple’s Thai massage is what you need after a morning spent sightseeing. Don’t forget the spectacular Alcazar show in the evening. Visit the Gems Gallery and the largest Buddha statue in the world en-route to Bangkok. If you didn’t get a chance to shop in Pattaya, then the Indra square in Bangkok is just the place. Have you seen an Orang Utan box? If you haven’t then a visit to the Safari world to watch the boxing show, sea lion show, cowboy stunts, and dolphins is a must. Want to know more click here.

How can we forget the newlyweds looking for honeymoon options? Well, we haven’t forgotten and here are some trips they can plan for what with the marriage season underway.
For a snowy, wintry, and cozy honeymoon opt to honeymoon on the mountains of Shimla and Manali. Looped near a 12km ridge, with sheer forested mountainsides, this capital city of Himachal is India’s most popular mountain resorts, bustling with newlyweds looking for a snowbound holiday. For some checking out the relics from Shimla’s earlier avatar as the summer capital of British India is a must. Since the town centre is traffic-free, walking is not a chore but a pleasant pastime where you can enjoy the town, weather, and each other’s company. The long, winding main street, the Mall, stretches from east and west just beneath the spine of the hill. To its south, the labyrinth of lanes, and the crowded bazaar stairways drop sharply down to the crowded Carter Road.
Enjoy a visit to the beautiful Sukhana Lake, explore the Rose Garden, Rock Garden, and Pinjore Garden, the Kufri fun campus for rides and amusement activities. If you love adventure sports, then a visit to Kufri-Winter Sports Capital is the best.
