2017 is set to be the year of Staycations (or, simply quick getaway in travel parlance) …
A trending travel concept is combining a vacation in a city for a few days and exploring its cultural delights. The idea is simple: instead of traveling around the entire country, trying to accommodate as many sights and multiple places during your vacations; focus on one city at a time.
2017 promises to be an exciting year for travel that has shifted focus on global cities with amazing attractions and cultural delights to experience.
