Valentine’s Day is an exciting time for couples because it celebrates their love. But, it is all the more interesting for those who love to travel together. Celebrated on February 14 every year, this year Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday. As such, many couples have planned to make the most of the love-filled weekend.

According to digital travel company Booking.com, some top domestic destinations are understood to have been booked for Valentine’s Week — between February 8 and February 15 — by Indian travellers. Of these, New Delhi, Goa and Mumbai are the top-booked domestic cities/UTs, followed by Jaipur and Bengaluru.

Additionally, Devanahalli (Karnataka), Hampi (Karnataka), Candolim (Goa), Pudicherry (Tamil Nadu) and Jodhpur (Rajasthan) have topped the list of trending destinations for Indian travellers, as compared to the same time last year.
