In fast-paced city life, what we perhaps need is more time to rejuvenate our senses and gain a new perspective. For all the workaholics who work from Monday to Friday, the mere mention of the word weekend sounds like therapy.
Delhi's proximity to several hill stations makes it the perfect location for going on short vacations. Yet, not every weekend is meant for that. Thankfully, there are many options in the city to indulge in new experiences. Take a break from your hectic schedules to do something enjoyable and relaxing. Don't confine yourself to wasting time sitting on the couch. Wear casual clothes and sneakers, and head out to explore the city and revisit your inner child.
Revisit heritage in the city
Heritage walks in Delhi are an excellent way to learn about the city and its history. Numerous groups and organizations in the city offer guided tours, each of which offers unique local experiences. The following is a list of the best walking tours in Delhi. Heritage promoting groups such as INTACH, Delhi by Foot, Master Ji Ki Haveli and Delhi Karavan among others.
If cycling is your happy place, groups like Delhi by Bike, Delhi by Cycle, and SpinMonkey conduct cycling excursions, including Haveli Tour, Old Delhi Tour, Yamuna Tour, Shah Jahan Tour, and many more.
Spend your day at an Amusement Park
The best way to spend an exciting weekend is to visit the city's fantastic amusement parks, both indoors and outdoors. You can go on thrilling rides, slide down massive water slides, bounce around indoor trampoline parks, play video games at arcades, or play laser tag with your friends and family.
This weekend, you can have fun at Worlds Of Wonder, Appu Ghar, SkyJumper, Adventure Island, Timezone, or Smaaash.
Try Indoor Ice Skating
We understand that the rampant heat is a limitation. So we devised a simple solution: indoor ice skating! Sliding across the ice on ice skates, falling, laughing, and simply having the time of your life! You can try it out with your friends at ISKATE by Roseate in Gurgaon or Snow World in Noida.
Attend a movie screening in the city
No, we're not talking about going to theatres to see blockbuster movies. Why not go to a movie screening and watch some foreign-language films this weekend? On weekends, many cultural centres and film societies in Delhi hold film screenings of classics and new releases in French, Korean, Italian, Japanese, and other languages. If you enjoy watching movies, you must follow film festivals and screenings at institutes such as India Habitat Centre, Max Mueller Bhavan, Alliance Francaise de Delhi and Italian Cultural Institute among others.
Plan a luxurious Staycation
If you cannot travel over the long weekend, we recommend you plan a staycation to rejuvenate yourself. There are many luxurious, budget-friendly, and even unusual stay options available for the weekend if you want to spend some time relaxing by yourself. To liven up your weekend without travelling too far, check out beautiful properties like Neemrana Fort Palace, ITC Grand Bharat, Andaz Delhi, The Lalit Mangar, The Westin Sohna Resort & Spa, The Roseate New Delhi, or Avanti Retreat.
