Long August weekends have Indians globetrotting

The longer weekends in August, with one stretching to nine days if one takes two working days off, have got the Indian travellers looking for getaways. Countries offering visa-on-arrival and Europe’s packed cultural calendar have attracted the maximum bookings.
The most demand is coming for countries like Mauritius, Maldives, Thailand, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Cambodia, which are connected by short and medium-haul flights.
“We are also getting good response for the new upcoming destinations such as Japan and South Korea,” travel firm Cox & Kings said.
