Brijesh Shaijal, Managing Director, World Architecture Travel, says sharing stories and experiences with people he meets, revitalises his spirits. “I am passionate about world cultures. Most people think that my way of travelling is all about exactly the opposite. I travel light, use public transport, and stay with the locals. You don’t get things like these in luxury travel,” he says. His most memorable holiday was his trip to Petra and in India, he’d pick Varkala Beach.
Rishi Chopra, General Manager, Le Méridien Mahabaleshwar Resort & Spa, says travel helps in enriching one's perspective towards life. “I enjoy spending time in natural surroundings. Thus, when it comes to domestic travel, I like to unwind at the beach resorts in Goa and also revel in the tranquil experiences that Kerala has to offer.” He also likes to travel to understand new cultures and experience local markets. Maldives remains his all-time favourite destination for its pristine waters and activities. He also takes time out to play chess. Listening to ace musicians like Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, and Modern Talking, is how Vijay Krishnan, General Manager, Alila Fort Bishangarh prefers to unwind after a hectic day at the fort. “I am an ardent cricket fan. I also enjoy travelling and one of my most memorable holiday moments was when I visited Ranthambore National Park with my wife and children where we sighted tigers,” Krishnan says. In India, he prefers travelling to Kochi and internationally, Dubai is his favourite holiday destination.
