Vacation Calling: 7 Sweet Escapes in India This Festive Season
With festive season and holidays coming, we’re already mentally making checklists of what to carry to our exotic getaways, whether it’s a sweet spot on the beach or an escape to the mountains. If you haven’t planned anything just yet then maybe our top seven holiday destinations will trigger your wanderlust.
If you just want to relax then consider the houseboats and lazy cruising life of Alleppey. This port city also has some pretty amazing beaches and a handful of places for a day’s worth of sightseeing- like the Krishnapuram Palace.
Do you agree that holidays spent sipping on wine are the best? Yes? Then head right to Nashik. This city claims to have 50 vineyards that you can visit for some tours and tasting- heaven if you ask us.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site has some pretty magnificent ruins that are perfect for you, if adventure and history are your calling. You can sign up for bicycle tours that take you along a cultural journey or trek up the Matanga Hill and treat yourself to sunrises or sunsets.
This laidback town offers you some gastronomical treats, the sea and a general air of siesta that makes it perfect for anyone who wants to just check-in to a boutique hotel and enjoy some quiet time. Also, the French architecture is beautiful.
If scuba diving is on your bucket list then book your tickets to Andaman Islands and tick it off your list. These islands are a perfect retreat for beach bums who love palm trees, rainforest retreats and of course, the sun, sea and sand.
Indulge like a royal and visit Udaipur where you can enjoy a night dining in the middle of the Lake Pichola or spend your days visiting lavish royal residences. Also, this lake city is known for its beautiful mosaic peacocks.
If you need to escape from the heat then visit Gulmarg and add some real ski experience to your credentials. You can hit the slopes all year round and this white haven has some pretty good spa retreats too.
With that we round up our favourite destinations in India? Where you heading to?
