Independence Day Weekend Packages


15th August, Independence Day India.
                           Long weekends are great for holiday goers and planners alike, while you get a chance to take a break from the daily routine, we holiday planners get a chance to serve you ( and sell a lot of our merchandise). Independence Day Weekend, 15th -18thAugust 2013 is one such opportunity to some spend some quality time with family or friends or both. Just take one holiday on 16th August, a Friday and you have a long weekend to spend. The week before is also the Id weekend, Friday, 9th August being a holiday for Id.
