List of long weekends in 2022 and how to plan trips accordingly.

Written by Anjali Dedha

It’s not easy to maintain a healthy balance between your work and personal life but it’s crucial that we press pause on our daily humdrums so that we can avoid a burnout from time to time.

Long weekends are the perfect gateways for us to seek the peace of mind we crave once the week ends and we are free to do with our time as we please. 

Most of us wait for the long weekends because they offer us the perfect opportunity to plan mini vacations without having to worry about missing out on work that will pile on once we get back to reality but planning a 5 day weekend trip is not that easy especially if you don’t know where to start from. 

If you have been waiting for your holiday calendar to start planning your vacations, you don’t need to look further anymore. We have got you covered with a carefully curated list of long weekends in 2022 and the best places to visit during the weekends so that you can have the best weekend trip.

And since most of us get annual paid leaves as well, we will also tell you how to utilize your paid leaves to extend your mini vacation and enjoy it to the fullest.

Here’s what 2022 has in store for you and tips on how you can take advantage of all the travel opportunities the long weekends in this year have to offer :
