Planning an impromptu holiday this New Year? Here’s a list of countries with hassle-free visa policies for Indians
New Years’ eve, as much as we look forward to it, many a time, we’ve also admitted that it is the most overrated night of the year.
While inside our head, we always imagine a grand party with some extravagant fireworks and champagnes popping, in reality, we’re mostly at some bar in the city, guzzling and hogging the night away.
However, we do think there’s a better way to usher in the New Year. It could be the perfect time to explore a new place to bring in the New Year!
But is it too last minute to start thinking where? Also are uncertainties of cumbersome visa processes bothering you? Worry not!
We got you covered for your impromptu New Year Travel scene. Here’s a list of countries that do not require any visa for Indians. So start packing your bags already!
Ever imagined of a glamorous beachy new year on the lap of nature? To that end, our first pick for that impromptu New Year getaway is Maldives. Apart from being the perfect destination to enjoy the sunny side of life, Maldives has a lot on offer such as its unique ecosystem and biodiversity.
For a more private celebration head to the Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, in Maldives. It is uniquely located beyond the equator and boasts of a unique jungle setting with over 17,000 coconut trees and majestic banyan trees.
Considering the cold and clammy weather in India during the New Year, one can never have enough of the warm and cosy beaches. And the next coast on our list is the sun-kissed Fiji Islands.
With a stunning cluster of 333 islands, Fiji is nestled in the South Pacific, not very far away from Australia and New Zealand. Flaunting some exquisite flora, fauna and underwater life, if these islands have been on your mind, then New Year is best time to explore this seashore haven.
Popular for its numerous cultures, hundreds of islands, jungles, volcanos and beaches, Indonesia is rightly termed as a slice of equatorial heaven.
With Bali, popular as a beautiful Island of God, Indonesia makes for a perfect destination for the nature lovers and people looking for some spiritual respite in the New Year.
As it tops the list of travellers from the world over, Indians are allowed in the country without any visa, so what are you waiting for?
Sri Lanka has been every Indian’s hot favourite for an impromptu international holiday. Counted amongst the greenest of countries in the world, this little island country always offers something new and exciting every time you visit here.
For more earthy and cultural experience in the artisan’s village, along with the luxuries of living right next to the pristine southern coast, book a luxury suite at Shangri-La’s Hanbantota Golf Resort and Spa and bid adieu to the year 2019 was.
Have a Happy New Year!
