Planned A Trip During Monsoons? Here’s How You Can Enjoy Despite The Showers!
First and foremost, always check the weather before you head out. It is best you stay prepared no matter the weather – heavy rain, sun or cold. If you are an outdoor person and the rain seems to be in your stars, then carry an umbrella or a raincoat. Ask your hotel staff to pull a few strings and make some basic arrangements. IGNORE the weather & head out to some scenic place and soak in the beauty. You might be a little bothered, but the efforts will be worth it. If you are more indoors person, head to a nice restaurant for a rainy day appropriate meal, or sit in the balcony with your partner to enjoy the rains. And, don’t forget you can enjoy the services in your hotel too, or interact with the other travellers who might stuck due to the rains like you. It’s alright to have a lazy day during a vacation. Not all days have to be all outdoorsy!
