Weddings are a big step into the next phase of life. While experiencing one is life-changing, the preparations for the same is more than exhausting! And I wouldn’t deny that the Indian community undergoes a little more having to prepare for so many rituals before they tie the knot.
Amidst this all, what’s more than needed is some time off with the gang to rejuvenate for the big day. So, allow me to be your lady luck and help you and your friends with some refreshing, offbeat bachelor/bachelorette destinations that will have up and running in no time!
Let’s begin with the gem of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka! Being an island country, it has nearly something to give back to everyone who visits. Somehow, there aren’t many who choose to celebrate their Bachelors / Bachelorette here.
If you and your friends are finding it difficult to choose between adventure and the beaches, then you all should be considering this one here. If planned well, you will surely be back with experiencing the best of both worlds 😀
