Summer vacation in India – best family holiday destinations
Thursday, April 7th, 2016

It’s summer vacation time again! Many schools around India are about to begin their summer vacation, while some schools in North (India) will give this much needed respite to students in the month of May.

While summer vacation is fun for kids, it can be challenging to parents sometimes. Without the structure and discipline of the school, kids can get bored and get on the nerves of the parents.

On the upside, summer vacations are a great time for family holidays and bonding!

Summer vacations - a good time to bond.

Gone are the days when family holidays meant going to the grandparents’ house or a visit to the tried and tested but boring old list of family holiday destinations. Summer vacation and family holidays now mean a time for the entire family to travel to a destination where they’ll make memories to last a long time.

With the availability of luxury villas and bespoke travel services within India, families now have the option to holiday within India, in style.

If you are wondering what are the best family holiday destinations in India for spending this summer vacation, here’s our chosen list, complete with options for activities suitable for families.

The Hidden Charms of Goa

Goa might not be the first place that comes to mind as a family holiday destination, given its popularity as a fun place for the young and energetic.

But look a little closer, and there’s so much for families to do together in Goa.

There’s the historic Old Goa (a UN Heritage Site) with a lot of heritage sightseeing options, and there are museums. For the outdoorsy, there are the national parks, spice plantations and trekking opportunities. For the bird-watchers, Goa is one of the best places in India to go to. There are more than 400 species of birds that you can spot.

Then there are the luxury pool villas (now on a 20% discount on popular weekends) with gardens and private pools. These villas have ample space for entire family to relax and have a truly memorable summer vacation. Well, while you are on it, bring some friends too, there’s a lot of space at these villas. They are designed to cater for the needs of privacy and at the same time accommodate the family holiday theme of ‘the more the merrier’.

Exploring Andamans

Andamans is not just one of the most romantic places in Asia, it’s also a treasure trove for learning and exploration. This summer vacation, instead of taking your kids to an aquarium, take them to the real deal – the living world of Andaman’s marine life.

Top it up with a lesson in history at the Kalapani and there you go, you have just given your kids a vacation that was not so easily accessible just a couple of decades back.

We have put together a package for Andamans, take a look here.

Kerala – Best of Both Worlds

While Goa and Andamans are mostly beach holiday destinations, Kerala offers you a more diverse range of options to choose from. There’s the verdant green hillstation of Munnar, the historical Cochin and the serene backwaters of Alleppey. Pick one. Or just go on a long trip, and see them all. After all, the kids are going to be this age only once.
