Weekends are relaxing days; add to that travelling and they’re fun-filled with loads of adventure. Be it with family, friends or solo, travelling has always been fun irrespective of the number of days dedicated to it. Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, and Delhi, 4 of these places have exotic beaches around expect one, Delhi! And for that one sole reason Delhi-ites are always complaining; the lack of sea and fresh waft that the sea water air brings with it.
