3 Unique Retreats in India for Your next Relaxing Weekend Getaway
City life can get pretty exhaustive, with traffic and pollution. We get so caught up with the demanding routines that we forget to take a break and rejuvenate. Instead of waiting for a burn out, it’s a good idea to take off to someplace for the weekend. For the least cost and most rest, farmstays are the best choice. With a homely vibe, they are a good break, away from mainstream hotels and cities. Their cozy factor, coupled with fresh, ‘breathable’ air ensures that visitors leave, feeling calm and refreshed.
