24100 Interested |

If staying at home is keeping you all riled up, make your weekends count and come to life. Here's a thought, why not make it a long weekend rather than 'just a weekend' and plan a getaway from Bangalore (with bae ofc) by taking all necessary safety precautions? From beaches and hill stations to jungles and stately ruins, you have enough to choose from. So, go ahead and enjoy a weekend getaway with your special one. Thank us later. Before you take off though, ensure you know the exact rules of each state, and of Karnataka too. Don't be caught off guard! Plus, make sure to wear your masks and clean your hands as well.


Coffee, amazing weather, and everything green! Explore the lush coffee plantations Chikmagalur is known for or go on a trekking trip with your pals or just bae if you’re up for some adventure. Or, if you’d rather prefer lazing around (or, should we say, snuggling), we suggest you hit up Villa Urvinkhan.

Approximate driving time: 6 hours


Sit back and spend some quality time with your special half in this nature haven as tumblers of filter coffee accompany you or enjoy the sinful local cuisine (pandi curry!). We are sure that you would have missed chilling in Coorg as much as we did. Want something quirky? From places that let you try your hand at gravity cycling to hydrotherapy, you have quite a lot to choose from in this serene town.

Blue skies, beach waves, and sand all over! Missed just laying around the beaches? Then, skip the trip to Goa and head to Gokarna instead. Walk along the beach (we recommend you cuddle in Kudle or Om beaches), enjoy the sea breeze, and guzzle some cold beer with the one. For a more secluded experience, you can escape to nearby Halfmoon and Paradise Beaches. Pick a cabin near the beach and you could even watch the sunset or the sunrise in peace. Here's more info into how you can have the best Gokarna experience.

Approximate driving time: 8.5 hours


Take a break from the city life and go out to see the real "Our Planet". A perfect choice if both of you are wildlife and nature enthusiasts, Kabini offers plenty of options for you to take a break from the city and enjoy a rustic, earthy life. Along with adventurous safari trips and some bird watching. If you’d like to add a touch of luxury, book yourselves into Red Earth. You won’t be disappointed.

Approximate driving time: 4 hours


Some dolphin-spotting, water sports and the lazy beach life is what you can look forward to at Mangaluru, also known as Mangalore. We suggest you plan a weekend of beach-hopping and enjoy the sun and sand with your soulmate. For stay, check in to a budget hotel or a comfortable beach house

From lakes and hills to valleys, this quaint hill station has enough to be explored. Oh, and charming old-world buildings and churches, too. Make an adventure of it and go wandering through the lesser-known spots in the city. Make sure to check the travel guidelines for Tamil Nadu and plan your travel accordingly. Here's a list of things you could do while in Ooty.

Fancy a junglee getaway (as unconventional as that might sound) with your partner? Masinagudi is where you should head to. Apart from the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary, you also have the Theppakadu Elephant Camp and Moyar River to check out. For an equally wild stay (think rustic tree houses), we recommend Jungle Hut. Please do check the guidelines for travel in and around Tamil Nadu and plan your travel accordingly by taking necessary safety measures.

Approximate driving time: 5 hours


Do yourselves a favour. Do make sure you cross the river to the Anegundi side and park yourself at one of the several charming riverside cottages (available at super budget prices). Wood fired pizzas, hammocks to laze around and even riverside picnic are ideal relaxing options. But our recommendation would be to hire yourselves scooters and hold your loved ones tight as you commute through the curvy cuts of the roads, exploring the monumental ruins of the Vijayanagara kingdom that Hampi is world famous for. Now if you desire something other than temple runs, here's what you could do

One weekend just may not be enough to make most of this place, we must tell you. But, while you’re at it, make it an unforgettable trip and check out the different experiences you can have here. Stroll through the tea estates, go bamboo rafting, visit Soochipara Falls (a magnificent three-tiered waterfall surrounded by a forest), explore Edakkal Caves (which has pre-historic etchings), trek through Chembra Peak and take a safari ride through the Wayanad Sanctuary. As it is in Kerala, we recommend you to check the Inter-State travel protocols and plan your travel accordingly. A visit to Wayanad calls for a visit to Sulthan's Bathery. Here's what we're talking about.

Approximate driving time: 5 hours


Another one for the beach bums. Considered one of Karnataka’s most beautiful beaches, Maravanthe also has calm surroundings that let you enjoy a quiet getaway by yourselves. Once you’ve had your fill of the seaside, make sure you set aside some time to take in the beauty of the Padukone village, known to be one of the must-visit places here.
