The Decade’s Group Travel Bucket List

Travelling in a group, here are your options for a quick escape from reality

As international travel opens up well-equipped with modern amenities for a post-pandemic experience, here is your brief itinerary for the group trip that has been delayed several times in the last couple of years.

Navigate the Mayan Ruins of the Yucatán Peninsula

The Peninsula is a host to a dazzling array of ancient historical ruins, some declared UNESCO Heritage. Chichen Itza is one such archaeological site, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, which draws over a million visitors.

Other tourist hubs are Tikal, Akumal Beach—to replenish your senses after a series of exhausting climbs, reef snorkelling, Tulum Ruins, Calakmul and Coba. Tulum is magical for it is perched on the edge of a cliff where the bright blue waters of the Caribbean hum in constant symphony.

Wheeze through the Tea Gardens of Sri Lanka on a Train 

Spoil the travel freak in you by signing up for the myriad train routes in Sri Lanka that offer reels of uninterrupted scenic beauty. The most sought-after routes are Colombo to Galle, Anuradhapura to Jaffna, Colombo to Kandy and Kandy to Badulla, and the terrains are equally diverse.

In these routes, experience the sloping tea gardens, watercolour tainted fields of paddy, coastal plains, green hills, swamps, forests, UNESCO archaeological sites and coastal countryside where families while away time on the shore of the Indian Ocean.

Indulge your Senses in Las Vegas

The beauty of Las Vegas lies in the myriad unconventional and mainstream things travellers get to do there! Be it visiting museums, skiing, rock climbing the Canyon, sailing in the Grand Canal or dancing away the night, Las Vegas grows on you.
