August 20, 2017: India’s famous online travel portal Yatra had recently conducted a survey which received 1500 responded from different parts of the country.

The survey was an extensive questionnaire that shows that there has been a changing pattern. The rainy season, which was once an obstruction, is now the favored season for traveling according to many Indians.

47.2% of the responses favored one to five days of getaway, when it comes to the duration of the travel. Close enough, 45.2% were alright with 5-15 days. But longer holidays of more than 15 days was preferred by only 6.9% of the respondents. Thus, short plans are most suited for the Indians.

When it comes to the most popular destinations for travel, Munnar, Goa, the northeast states and Andaman islands were top spots. While 47.1% of the responses wished hill stations as their favored spot, 31.4% wanted the beach to be included in their plans. 72.8% of the people want to travel within India.

But it is the luxury segment of travel that has taken a back seat, partly due to the GST hikes in various places. 18% of the responses would have the budget of about Rs. 50,000 while 17% would want to spend less than Rs. 10,000.

A hotel accommodation worth Rs. 2,500-5,000 was most preferred by 43.5% where as 12.3% considered rooms between Rs. 5,000-7,500.

Finally, it was also noted that paying out the travel expenses through credit cards was favored by 62.2% of the responses in contrast to 16.7% who use debit cards and 9.6% who would turn to cash.

Millennials are seekers of wholesome experiences. For them, travel is not just a means of escaping a busy lifestyle, but an end in itself. It’s an essential part of life, not a break away from it.

In sync with the new taste and preferences of young adventure-seekers, the following places are rising up to the occasion by enhancing their travel experiences:

Aurangabad
An exquisite confluence of history and culture, Aurangabad is home to the renowned Ajanta and Ellora Caves, a lot of old forts, art galleries, and museums. Besides this, the place is a bubbling, simmering pot of a range of dishes that no food-lover can afford to miss.

Mukteshwar
What could be better than mountains and peace? Mukteshwar is the stuff that a nature lover’s dreams are made of. It is the perfect place to chill alongside Nature within the folds of mighty mountains while enjoying the soul-soothing embrace of sunlight and the skin-tingling kiss of wintry waft. Mukteshwar is less than an eight-hour drive from Delhi, making it one of the closest hill stations to the Capital.

Wayanad
Wayanad is another treat for nature-lovers who also seek unique cultural experiences. Situated at a distance of 76 kilometers from the beaches of Kozhikode, the region is popular among backpackers on account of its near-perfect weather and scenic setting punctuated with dams, lakes, and hike trails. The town paints a quaint and soothing picture with the lush green of mountainous plateaus, picturesque jungles, and idyllic valleys dominating. Squatting atop the Western Ghats and enclosing part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, Wayanad is not considered the most beautiful district in Kerala in vain.

Alleppey- travel

Pokhara
Pokhara is often called the tourism capital of Nepal – and it is not in vain that it has received this moniker. It serves as a gateway to the renowned Annapurna Circuit, is among the most exciting paragliding destinations the world over, and offers the entrancing sight of the beautiful lake framed by sky-piercing mountains. What crystallizes its reputation as the ultimate ‘Adventure Land of Nepal’ is that it cuts a less busy version of Kathmandu while holding on its own as a must-visit backpacker’s paradise.

It is only when one has explored the intricate network of waterways which can only have been knitted by Mother Chaos that one realizes that the tag ‘Venice of the East’ does Alleppey injustice. Perpetually carrying the fascinating look of a forest having just emerged from a spell of rain, the region is famous for its toddy shops, punted boats, coir industry, paddy fields, the floating villages, and houseboats!
