10 getaways in the south you can visit to enjoy long weekends in 2018; The News Minute

India – Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram

Whether you’re an adventure buff, a beach bum or a mountain child, we’ve made a list – by no means exhaustive – of 10 quick getaways in the south.

What better to do on a long weekend than head out somewhere?

And even though 2018 has fewer long weekends than 2017, there still are a fair few – as many as 14, in fact.

This year, Republic Day (January 26) falls on a Friday, which makes it a three-day weekend. Similarly, Mahavir Jayanti (March 29) and Good Friday (March 30) fall on Thursday and Friday respectively, making that weekend perfect for a short trip out of town.

In fact, if you take leave on one day (Thursday, August 23), you can get five entire days off in August – Eid-ul-Adha falls on a Wednesday and Onam falls on the Friday after.

Check out a list of more long weekends in 2018 here.
