If we had the pleasure of the company of a few good friends in our student life, then almost for sure at one time we’ve all made plans for a trip to Ladakh or Goa. Well, then what might be the best time other than this instant to respond to that thought. Get up, fill up that empty tank, turn on the ignition and kick-start the two-legged animal. Get ready for the ride, put a pair of aviators on and give some throttle in answer to the meandering curves of the tortuous path of Khardung La and embark upon a journey of self-discovery and self-actualization.

Welcome to India’s smallest state as well as the richest one. Goa is known for its sun-kissed beaches, quality nightlife, palpable food and chic fashion. In the city, you are never really far off from the beaches and wild nightlife. A hot spot for foreigners, it offers a wide range of site-seeing in Goa along with many adventure sports. The beaches of Baga and Calangute offer jet-skiing, parasailing, water scooter rides and much more. The state is a former Portuguese Province which you can truly sense in the architecture. Bom Jesus Basilica and convents of Old Goa are a couple of examples which are World Heritage Sites of the state declared by UNESCO.

But above all, you will find true calmness and serenity while sunbathing on the beaches of Goa. Hear the splashing sounds made by Arabian Sea, catch that breeze of fresh air coming from the palms while you take a sip from your coconut and rest on that swinging hammock.

3. Bengaluru, the ‘Silicon Valley’ of India

When the word ‘toy train’ is uttered, two hill stations come to our mind i.e. Shimla and Darjeeling. But Darjeeling should always take the upper hand with its noted tea industry, breath-taking views of Kangchenjunga and Darjeeling Himalayan Railway which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Queen of the Hills is located in the Lesser Himalayas at an elevation of 6700 ft. While strolling through the market you can feel that the air has a nip to it, that the clouds are at a touching distance and the serenity of the snow-clad white mountains is slowly clearing the haze away. Hop aboard the famous Darjeeling Toy Train and experience the true vibrancy of this cute little hill station.
