5 Diwali Vacation Trips for 2019 Diwali

Diwali Vacations are just a month away and a holiday away from the city sounds fantastic, isn't it? Trips Wheel Pvt Ltd found some interesting facts. Take a look at where Indians are headed for a Diwali break in 2019

1. Bangkok

Use your mid-week break to explore this action-packed city. A short 4-hour flight away, this shopping haven makes for a great Diwali break, given that there is a sizeable Hindu and Indian population here. There are lots of Hindu temples in Bangkok, adding to the visual delight of the festival of lights. You can also combine your Bangkok trip with a short beach break close by.

Top things to do in Bangkok
  • Shop at MBK Mall
  • Visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha
  • Brush up your Thai cooking skills by joining a class

2. Dubai

Just a short flight away, the shiny city of Dubai has emerged as the top choice to spend the Diwali break. Additionally, a mid-week chunk of the population in Dubai is Indian, which makes it a great place for an action-packed celebration!
