This cannot be stressed enough. It is vital that you book your air tickets or your train tickets well in advance. With the holiday season rolling in, there are going to be loads of families heading home. To avoid being charged exorbitant prices, do make sure to plan your vacation as early as possible. This might be difficult considering how health or untimely emergencies can get in the way but it’s truly beneficial.

This might sound like it’s clashing with the previous point here this out. Whilst it’s important that you book in advance, it’s also important that you see that you don’t get bogged down if a particular date does not work out for you while booking a ticket. Also, it’s best to avoid weekends and Fridays when most people love going on holidays and it’s better to book on the weekdays.

4) Travel With Somebody Or Get BnBs and Hostels If You’re Solo-Travelling

When you travel with some buddies, it’s easier on your pockets as you’re most likely going to split the money. So travel cost, hotel cost and all of the extra travelling in and around will be a lot cheaper when you’re travelling with a few people. But in case you’re travelling alone, a hostel or the BnBs are your most inexpensive bets.

5) Travel Light

It’s our normal human instinct to overpack but it’s truly important that you travel light. It’ll save you the trouble to keep finding help and paying extra to have your bags and luggage lugged around.

6) Plan Your Budget

It’s highly important that you plan your budget and your expenses beforehand. When you set aside a number to spend, it’s likely then that you wouldn’t go over your planned expenditure. That way you can concentrate on the things you truly want to purchase instead of going for trinkets you’ll probably not enjoy in the long term.

7) Do Your Research

Bhutan

Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.

We all love taking a break from our busy work schedule and spend some quality time with our family and friends. Just like us, Bollywood celebrities also enjoy spending time with their loved ones. And one power couple that has given us major travel goals recently is Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli.

Earlier this month, the duo was seen having a gala time in Bhutan. Both Anushka and Virat shared several photos from their getaway on social media.

1) When you travel through Bhutan, you will find many spectacular views that will take your breath away. Here you will find steep mountains crisscrossed by networks of swift rivers. The climate in this country is always good for the travellers. However, October to December is the ideal time to visit Bhutan.

2) The beautiful country of Bhutan offers several tourist attractions. From Paro Taktsang to Gangteng Monastery and Punakha Dzong, the travel bug inside you will get fully satisfied here. Interestingly, the capital of Bhutan, Thimpu has one of the largest statues of Buddha made of bronze and gilded in gold towering over the city.

3) Bhutan is also an amazing place for foodies. Ema datshi, the national dish of Bhutan is a very spicy delicacy made with cheese and chilies. Even if you don’t enjoy spicy food, you must try Ema datshi for sure.

4) The rich heritage and culture of Bhutan is an important reason why one should visit this country. More than two-thirds of the Bhutanese citizens follow Vajrayana Buddhism and around one-third follow Hinduism. One can easily get to see the Bhutanese culture and traditions in their dressing style, way of speaking, and cultural activities.

5) Bhutan is also an amazing place for adventurists. There are many places in Bhutan where one can get a great trekking experience. Even Anushka and Virat went trekking during their trip.

Bhutan is a beautiful country on the eastern edge of the Himalayas and is popular for its monasteries, fortresses and breathtaking landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. And just like Anushka and Virat, this Buddhist kingdom should be on the top of your travel list too.
