Settled along the bank of the Vasai Creek that extends into the Ulhas River flowing through the Western state of Maharashtra, Vasai is a bustling metropolis in the Palghar district. One of the most popular attractions of the town is the centuries-old Vasai Fort also known as Bassein Fort. It is surrounded by water on three sides and has a rustic design that looks appealing against the green environs. To spend a tranquil picnic people head to this spot over a weekend from Mumbai and Pune. You can also plan a trip to Vasai-Virar almost all through the year due to the unchanged nice and pleasant climate with lower temperatures.
Furthermore, to satiate your need for adventure one can pay a visit to the Arnala Beach in Vasai-Virar. The place is fringed with palm trees, soft sand and clear sea waves where you can also indulge in parasailing, Jet-skiing, horse-riding and much more. Typically the travellers make a short trip here over the weekend to relax and unwind at any of the luxury resorts and lodging options amidst natural scenery, or a religious visit at the prestigious temples like Tungareshwar, Jivdani and other temples. Moreover, in the last few years the Waterparks and other entertainment facilities in Vasai have also been a welcomed surprise to the people, especially families wanting to have a full-day of fun with their young ones. The water and amusement rides at the Great Escape and other parks offer a lot of memorable experiences.
