There are pros and cons to moving away from home. Making new friends, experiencing freedom on one hand and nostalgia on the other. Yet, home is where the heart is.

This weekend, take a trip home without the hassle of planning and optimizing for the cheapest tickets long in advance with Uber Intercity. Reaching home now is just a phone-tap away.

Here are 5 good reasons to book an Uber Intercity and go back to your friends and family.

 

1. Ahmedabad to Baroda: For your favourite time together

Once you have reached on time hassle-free,  take your mother to Baroda Prints and buy her favourite saree, take her to visit the Champaner-Pavagadh Archeological Park and the Sayyaji Gardens and catch up on things back in the day.

See Baroda through the eyes of HolidayIQ traveller Vivek “ Tour to Laxmi Vilas Palace takes you to the days of the royal Gaekwads. The museum in the vicinity of the palace exhibits the original creations of Raja Ravi Varma along with other art pieces. There are great corners in the city to enjoy Gujarati food.”  

2. Chandigarh to Ludhiana: Of familiar memories

When you reach your hometown Ludhiana, how can you not visit the numerous beautiful Gurudwaras? Get together with your childhood friends and plan a visit to Hardy’s World Amusement Park for a day full of nostalgia and fun.

Now, remember those days you would love taking a toy train ride in Rakh Bagh? It’s time to go back and take a quite a walk through the dainty lanes and cherish those memories.

See Ludhiana from a different perspective thanks to HolidayIQ traveller Prince Kocha, “Best time to visit the city is during autumn, pleasant weather in October. Also, this place has some really good shopping options, be it in malls or old shopping venues like Chaura Bazar. Tourist attractions are Gurudwara Shrimanji, Sahib Alamgir, Maharaja Ranjit Singh War Museum and Lodhi Fort.”

3. Hyderabad to Warangal: Rediscover those days of walking over the bridge

Back at home in Warangal, there are several things to do like head out for a biryani party with your family at Alpha restaurant or take them to the Thousand Pillar Temple. However, don’t forget to revisit the bridge over Laknavaram lake with your best friend and talk about the good old times.

Speaking about good times hear what HolidayIQ traveller Ramesh has to say, “Warangal derived from the old name Orugallu was the capital city of ancient Kakatiya Kingdom and presently the second largest city in Telangana. The main tourist attractions are 1000 pillar temple built in the 12th century, Kakatiya Fort, Bhadrakali temple. Warangal is 140 km from Hyderabad and is well connected by train and road.”

4. Bangalore to Mysore: Indulge in nostalgia

Nostalgia and Mysore go hand in hand. This time when you head home, take your parents along and relish the soft fluffy Mysore Masala Dosas of Mylari with a cup of filter coffee or go take a walk through the green lanes of Manasagangotri.

HolidayIQ traveller Rithesh takes a walk down the memory lane in Mysore “Beautiful, lots of greenery, amazing architecture, great food, culturally vibrant, what's not to like about Mysore? Indulge in an Ayurvedic spa massage or just any of the epicurean delights. Mysore is a city with a little bit of everything”

Once you have reached Pune, head out solo, road tripping to Mahabaleshwar. Stroll through the strawberry fields and enjoy delicious fruit jellies and jams. Head back home and step out for a bite of your favourite Vada Pav at that familiar street corner with your school friends and catch up on the latest gossip.

Here’s some trivia about the forts and food by HolidayIQ traveller Alok  “Head down to Aga Khan Palace - Infamous Gandhi Prison, Shaniwar Wada - 18th century Peshwa Fort, Osho Ashram, Sinhagad - for backpacking and Parvati Hill to name a few tourist spots. The local delicacies are Puran Poli, Pithla, Chaat, Pav Bhaji and the famous Misal Pav.”

In an age where everything is controlled through a tap of a button, why not evolve in the way you travel too? All you have to do is book an Uber Intercity. It cannot get easier than this. So what’s holding you back?
