If you've got a day off, opt for a day-long trek, camping or simply go for a long drive with some really good music. Here's a really comprehensive list of offbeat things to do with your bae.

Plan A Long Weekend In Advance

Now, as it's a Friday, you can opt to make your one-day plan into a full-fledged three day one. While there are plenty of getaways around Mumbai, you can opt for some really exotic (and unknown destinations) and explore something new rather.

So, plan, get your bookings in place and simply head. 

Shop For A Special Outfit
