Workation in simplest terms means a working vacation; You unwind after finishing work. Now, with fears looming over of another possible lockdown, the search for workation destinations in and around the city spikes up.

Easy Guide to Plan a Workation

Choosing a Safe Location

It’s imperative to choose a safe location considering the COVID-19 situation. While a lot of you may dream of working from the hills, the government has now made COVID tests mandatory for several states. So pick a place that is nearby and follows all safety and social distancing protocols. 

Strong Network Connectivity

One of the pre-requisites of fixing upon a workation destination is a stable internet connection and cell reception. A place with good WiFi and regular electricity will enable a smoother work process. It is wise to choose a private villa vis-a-vis a hotel, where there will be a lot of people chancing upon the free internet connection. 

Destination With Activities to Do

A home with a pool, large lawns, gardens or near the beach ensures rejuvenation activities once the laptop shuts down. So pick a place that facilitates your unwinding away from any devices.
