Working from home is turning out to be tough for many due to the monotony, especially for those who love to travel and visit different places twice or thrice in a year. While people are still getting well-versed with the new normal, a concept, workation, on the other hand, is garnering popularity. The word workation is made from ‘work’ and ‘vacation.’ Combing business and leisure have been tried by travel enthusiasts in the past, but it’s only now that people are taking it more seriously. When deciding a destination for workation you should check if the place has good internet and mobile reception, charging slots, etc. Since you don’t want to visit a lot of sites in the city amid the coronavirus pandemic, pick a place and a hotel that has an awesome view that will rejuvenate your mind and soul.
