Bookmark this page and plan your trips ahead. According to West Bengal State Govt. Public Holidays List,  there are 10 long weekends in 2019, which means you can plan quick getaways well in advance without having to take too much leaves. Going away for a weekend allows families and individuals to rest and recover after a long week at work. Designing a trip in advance leads to save good amount of money when you get to compare, negotiate and choose amongst multiple options available. It also means saving on time. Otherwise, thoughts like that  where to go, what to do, how to save, leaves one no where .
