Best Places To Go In Christmas Vacation

December 5, 2013 | By

We queried our travel enthusiasts who are perpetually affected by wanderlust, and here’s their list of the best places to go in christmas holiday

Christmas and New Year holidays are known as much for the festive activities as for their impeccable Christmas vacation mood and wide, wide choice of holiday destinations.

The weather is perfect and you have a million choices – would you want a tour in the pleasant, cool temperatures of India or the snow-covered resplendent white Europe?

How about a trek through the sunny deserts of Dubai or maybe a dekho at South East Asia’s ancient architecture and golden beaches?

It’s difficult to choose, since each destination has its own attractions, appeal and heaps of not-to-be-missed sights! Phew, how much can you see in such a short time…!

So we queried our travel enthusiasts who are perpetually affected by wanderlust, and here’s the list of destinations they voted as the best places to go in winter holidays…


Indians love to pack their bags and set off to some vacation spot in the Christmas and New Year holidays. And why not? It’s the best weather you can get in India, no scorching sun, no sweat and no need to carry sunscreen or prickly heat powder!

So take out your travel diary and start jotting down the best travel destinations of India you can visit this year in Christmas vacation. Here we go:




At the confluence of the Madhurapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers, Munnar, believed to mean “three rivers”, is an idyllic getaway. Its peaceful environment, clean and green surroundings and tranquil atmosphere offers the best relaxation one can hope to get.


Vivekananda Rock, Kanyakumari

Vivekananda Rock, Kanyakumari

Kanyakumari lies at the southernmost tip of mainland India and is the tip of the peninsula. You enjoy pilgrimage and tourism together here.


Nisargadhama, Coorg


Coorg, known now as Kodagu, is one of the most popular hill station destinations in India has rich wildlife, rolling green moors, and flourishing agro-forestry, especially coffee plantations.


Backwaters, Kerala


If you are heading south, go straight to Kerala, where the golden beaches, the rippling sea waves, the romantic backwaters transport you to a world of peace, bliss and relaxation.


Jaswant Thada, Jodhpur


Any mention of Jodhpur makes you think of the magnificent Umaid Bhawan Palace that regularly hosts the leading celebrities of the world for the most ostentatious and elaborate social functions. But Jodhpur is much more than that. You can’t miss the imposing Mehrangarh Fort, which sprawls over 5 km on a perpendicular hill. Take a quick tour of Jodhpur here before booking your tickets.


Jaisalmer Fort


Made from yellow sand and yellow sandstone that sparkle in the sun, the intricately sculpted fort palace and temples are known for their golden tinge. Satyajit Ray’s award winning film Sonar Kella (The Golden Fortress) brought this Golden City’s amazing fort palace into international attention.


City Palace, Udaipur

City Palace, Udaipur

The romantic Lake Palace surrounded by the rippling, clear waters and rolling hills is a photographer’s delight. Udaipur has the best hotels of the world here vying for your attention, with absolutely heart-warming hospitality. But the Lake Palace, with its charming aristocratic ambience and impeccable service takes the cake.


Cansaulim Beach, Goa

Cansalium Beach, Goa

The colourful, vibrant Christmas carnival of Goa is famous around the world. The festive spirit is infectious, if you are there you are part of the celebrations.

    India is best new year’s and holiday spot who want to visit historical place and culture like Taj Mahal, Taksial, Jammu and Kashmir, Darjeeling. India Wildlife Tour is a most important tour for tourist because it is a biggest wild area in Rajasthan where we can explore different animals and birds .
