The working culture has undergone a massive change in the recent past. With more than 40,000 people travelling for work related issues every quarter, it is safe to say that there is more business on the go. This is probably the biggest reason why corporate guest houses in Gurgaon have come up in such a big way. Being within the NCR, and also known as the Las Vegas of India, Gurgaon has metamorphosis in the recent past like no other city. That being said, will it be nice to be visiting Gurgaon for work and so missing out on all the action and fun in India’s very own sin city? I guess not. This is why, one has to become slightly more conscious when it comes to corporate travelling.
The dos and the don’ts
I wish it were as simple as dos and don’ts but since that isn’t the case, we might as well jot down some very basic requirements that a corporate traveller has.
- The most important thing to take care of is that you are healthy while you travel. I know it sounds pretty stupid but trust me. The most important thing is to cater to your own health. If you aren’t well when you plan your trip, chances are that you will fall even sicker and ruin your own stay there.
- Be the family man that you are and take your family along. One usually thinks that they will not be available because of work, but still, the family can enjoy the sights and sounds of the place.
- Pick a decent accommodation for your stay in Gurgaon so that you don’t become all troubled there. Conduct enough research to make sure that whatever you are hoping for you will get it there. Try some fun place which offers some cool perks.
- Never overstep your budget. In a place like Gurgaon, it is very easy to end up overspending because there is so much to do. The best way to keep track is to stay firm on the things that you must do or would prefer to do and leave the rest for the next trip.
- If your trip is a long one, avoid a budget hotel and consider a guest house, because it will be easy on the pocket while delivering the same or even better service.
- Never be in a hurry to see everything. Relax. Take time to do what you are doing. A busy schedule and the desire to grasp as much as you possibly can may end up leaving you exhausted, tasteless and really sick.
The thumb rule
If you can stick to your plan (and make one which isn’t boring and tedious) then there is no way that your corporate travel can go wrong. Take it easy and let loose, but stay aware of what you came for. Remember that trips are there to create memories. Don’t lose out on yours only because you were too lazy to plan!
