Seeking Ideas For Long Holi Weekend? These 8 Startups Will Help You Plan Holi Weekend Like A Pro!
The festival of colours is just around the corner. If three months of working with barely any long weekend has dampened your spirits, the news of the coming one will definitely cheer you up. This year, Holi comes during a long weekend, allowing everyone to celebrate it in their way.
Therefore, you can also plan a mini-vacation in adventurous locations and less explored scenic spots. For Mumbaikars, a long weekend is an opportunity to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and visit one of the many holiday destinations in and around Maharashtra.
