2017 calendar: Here`s why you should start planning your long weekend trips now

New Delhi: The year 2016 did not give travellers many options to plan their holidays on long weekends. A number of holidays fell on weekends, which meant that office goers and others lost their well-deserved chance to plan trips during the extended weekend.

The year 2017 is, however, bringing many opportunities to go on vacation on a long weekend.

So, what are you thinking? Make your reservations now.

Here is the list of extended weekends which you can utilise well enough to plan your trips before time:

  • January 26, Republic Day (Thursday)
  • February 24, Mahashivratri (Friday)
  • March 13, Holi (Monday)
  • May 1, May Day (Monday)

  • August 15, Independence Day (Tuesday)
  • August 25, Ganesh Chaturthi (Friday)
