Coorg Weekend Getaway

Coorg Weekend Getaway

by

Mid-July, Snubnose and I took a short weekend break with my work friends to Coorg. True, it is right in the middle of the monsoon, and we fully expected our trip to be a washout. However, though it rained off and on, the weather was overall very pleasant, and we ended up having a great time.

This time, we spent a lot of time in Coorg proper (Madikeri) and nearby places. We stayed at the Coorg Heights resort, which is a nice resort up slope, with sweeping views of the hills and valleys around.

As a family, we love to vacation in South-East Asia. What’s not to like? Most of the places are kid-friendly (yes, we found family friendly things to do even in notorious Pattaya), cheap, and easy to get to from Bangalore.

This year, as we again begin our travel planning for the annual holiday in December, my eyes wander off to the right-hand side of the map we have on hand, and for some reason Phillippines is beckoning to me.

While I love to travel and explore different places, I tend to do so on a budget (terrible currency conversions), and you really can’t have great experiences when you travel on budget airlines with multiple hops, or stay at 3-star hotels miles away from the tourist attractions you want to visit.

But sometimes one is lucky and experiences that great plane ride, or that great hotel stay, and in this post, I wanted to call out two such great travel experiences I have had.
