TravTalk - India - - MOVEMENTS -

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.
