Being right next to New Delhi, Gurgaon has seen a lot of upcoming businesses in the last few years. Numerous malls have come up apart from industries and business houses. In fact, Gurgaon has come to be known as the Sin City, Vegas, of India. This is why of late, many new corporates have also settled in, bringing more and more corporate travellers.
It’s almost like a cycle – a business brings in more people which leads to more business that brings in even more people. This has culminated profitably for our nation in quite a big way. Corporate travellers have led to the development of a number of budget hotels and guest houses in Gurgaon that offer innumerable facilities and perks.
Living it up!
Most people fear corporate trips because they are scared of the boredom and disturbances that occur there. However, if planned in the right way, a corporate trip can be turned into a full-fledged holiday! Keep in mind the following and just enjoy!
1 – The backpack
I guess the biggest reason for fear of a trip is its overwhelming luggage. Try to keep it light. Carry only the basics so that you can travel easily without having to haul suitcases all across the town.
2 – Get the details
The smartest way to have fun on a business trip is to make and itinerary and to stick to it. Ensure that you know the sights and sounds of the place before hand. Identify all the places of interest and get their details so that it is easy to access them.
3 – Don’t do it all
There is no point in trying to do everything at once. It is entirely possible that you will run short of time, so plan a few things to do and do them well. Don’t forget that after all, you are on an official trip and too much bustling around can prove to be a mistake.
4 – Budget
Gurgaon is a place where it is a little too easy to overspend, but remember that will put you in a very difficult situation. So, try to keep a fixed budget and only spend that much. Once you have done that, simply walk away. Leave a few things for your next visit!
5 – Book in advance
The biggest mistake an educated professional can make is land up on a place without booking his lodgings. Don’t do that. Make sure that you have researched about the places available there and have booked in advance. Otherwise, you may jolly well end up in a soup and make a terrible mess of your fun business trip!
