AirAsia Free Seats - 2016 Wanderlust Now


2015 has been a pretty good year for my wanderlust so far: Singapore in March, Terengganu that same month, Chiangmai for Songkran with AABC, and now I'm writing this from Bangkok, with a trip to Hong Kong in the wings next month - phew!
Songkran: This. Over and over. All day long.
Not that I'm complaining of course - there are so many more places to explore! After experiencing Songkran (Thailand's annual water festival and a constant feature on most must-do festival bucket lists worldwide), I'm obsessed with wanting to tick off all the other festivals, and I'm not talking about the music ones (although those too please! =P)

There are so many to choose from: Lantern Festival in Pingxi, Taiwan, Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea, Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan, Sinology Festival in Philippines, Hue Festival in Vietnam  etc. However, after Songkran, my wish for 2016 would be to take it up a notch, and be splashed with colour.. Where else but India?


Yes, the Holi Festival, also known as the Festival of Colours. Celebrated by Hindus in the Spring, It is basically Songkran Extreme - and if you've experienced Songkran, you know how crazy it is. Also revolving around a water fight, Holi throws in dry coloured powder, a bonfire, music and dancing; creating a festive atmosphere like no other.

After a quick internet search on India, it doesn't even seem to matter which part of India you go to celebrate - they all go full out! And with beautiful places in every location, such as:
Ulsoor Lake in Bengaluru
The beaches of Goa
The Old City of Hyderabad
Dakshineswar Kali Temple in Kolkata
...and of course, just to immerse yourself in the culture and oft-heard-of Indian everyday life!


So, if you could go to any festival you want, which would be your first choice? Check out Air Asia Free Seats asap, and you could very well be on your way there this time next year!

Love always,
Calista xx
