7 thoughts on “13 best places to visit outside india – under 6 hours flight”.

Wow! I loved your list. I have travelled to Singapore & Dubai. Looking forward to visit other destinations too. Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong &Vietnam I want to explore.

I wanted to drop a comment to express my appreciation for your blog post on the “13 Best Places to Visit Outside India – Under 6 hours flight.” Your detailed description of each destination made it easy for me to plan my next vacation. After reading about the Maldives, I am now inspired to plan a trip. Thank you for sharing your travel experiences and recommendations.

This is indeed a very intelligent list that you have compiled. Would come handy to anyone with budget or time constraints. I would also suggest Bangladesh. Barely an hour from Kolkata, this country has a lot to offer in terms of nature, history, crafts, weaves, food and culture in general.

I’ve been to 3 out of the list and going to Thailand in June. I always prefer near by destinations than far off as I get too bugged to sit for long hour flights. I would also recommend Oman in the near by destination as it’s one of the beautiful places to be.

These are great short trip options. Now that we have covered all of them, it’s an issue which quick getaway is on our list for family travel! I mean when you are traveling with kids and elderly parents, you don’t want to spend 15 hours on a flight with a 4 hour stopover. Can you list some other options too under 6 hour radar?

I must say your post on the best places to visit outside India under 6 hours is an incredible piece of work. Your vivid descriptions of each destination, accompanied by breathtaking pictures, made me feel as if I were already there. I appreciate your effort in making it an informative and enjoyable read.

I had recently visited Maldives, and although the experience of staying at a resort island was out of the world, the local island Hulhumale was charming as well.

  • Raising your voice over an argument is considered disrespectful in Nepal.
  • Unless you get the consent of the locals, don’t photograph them.

  • Best Places To Visit In May Outside India With Family

Best Places to Visit in May Outside India with Family

Travelling around the world can be a recreational activity for some people while for others it is a way of life. And then there are those who need to explore the hidden treasures of a strange land, in order to have a fulfilling life. Whether you fall into these categories or have your own unreserved love for travel, the best places to visit in May that are outside India offer an enticing proposition for your restless soul. Considered as the ideal time to travel to countries that are buzzing with fun-filled activities, May is a month when unwinding from the daily troubles becomes a ritual for many people.

Be it with family or friends, travelling in the summer is the perfect way to unwind. Thence, if you are keen on making your summer a memorable one, mentioned below are six of the top places to visit outside India during May:

1. Revel in the Scent of Lithuania 

Bewitching is the first word that pops in your head as soon as you land in Lithuania. One of the most unique places to visit outside India in months like May, June and July would be this Baltic country for sure. The first stop should be its capital city, Vilnius which is famous for archaic churches, street-side cafes and enchanting museums. St. Anne’s Church, Three Cross, KGB Museum and Museum of Occupation and Freedom Fights are the top places to visit in May outside India with family, friends or even on your own. For exploring more of Lithuania, visiting Trakai, Užupis and Lake Glave with pockets full of Cepelinai (potato-based dumplings) and Grybukai (mushroom cookies) is highly recommended. Also, if you happen to be a perfume lover, then purchasing a bottle of Lithuania’s own scent would be a great choice!

2. Explore the Medieval Era in Croatia 

Croatia has been experiencing a boom in international tourism since the last couple of years, perhaps, because of its irresistible natural beauty that the world has finally opened its eyes to. For this reason, travelling in this country should be done smartly for avoiding large crowds. Moreover, Croatia is the best place to visit in May outside India as the number of tourists is relatively less. Zagreb is the capital city bustling with vibrant markets, delectable food and art galleries. Trying out Croatian wine called Malvazija along with Buzara (mussels-based delicacy) should be done in the capital’s top cafes. All Game of Thrones fanatics must pay a visit to the old town of Dubrovnik, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site which has medieval churches, monuments and pirate-theme shops in abundance. Another Croatian treasure is the city of Split where the famous Diocletian’s Palace built in the 4th century is settled in. Besides this, walking on this city’s cobbled streets strewn with boutiques and restaurants is also a refreshing experience.

3. Hike in the Mystical Forests of Peru

Peru is also seen as one of the best places to visit outside India during the month of May as the entire country is alive during this time of the year. For tourists who are hiking enthusiasts, you have the Andes Mountains. The Inca Trail in Cusco offers enthralling hikes that end at Machu Pichu right above the Sacred Valley. Along with this, travellers can visit the capital city, Lima which is famous for its Ceviche (cured fish delicacy) and breath-taking coastline. The Ballestas Islands located in Paracas can provide a unique experience to tourists as thousands of sea birds can be observed flying in the skies. Furthermore, Paracas National Reserve should also be part of the itinerary; you’ll get to see South American fur seals, sei whales, marine otters and dusky dolphins live in their natural habitat. Peru’s natural beauty is also highlighted at Huacachina, a desert oasis with the high sand dunes around it. This region is best explored with nature coaster rides after which tourists can taste the finest South American wines at Pisco Vineyards.

4. Soak in the Midnight Sun of Norway

Scandinavia’s gift to the world is the beautiful country of Norway where every street corner is a sight for sore eyes. Travel enthusiasts have this country in their bucket list as it is one of the most captivating places to visit outside India especially in May as the archipelago is brimming with excitement. Known for the Vikings, fjords and breathtaking islands, Norway’s travel itinerary should be well-planned so that nothing is missed out on. Oslo, the capital city has a reputation for having the perfect weather, thus making it one of the best places to visit in May that are outside the Indian sub-continent.

This destination includes 50 museums, several gardens, 150 monuments and the like. However, the most thrilling journey tourists must make in Norway is to the Arctic Circle for witnessing the Northern Lights. Besides this, the Lofoten Islands are a must-visit for tourists who enjoy unwinding in quaint fishing villages while gorging on fresh seafood delicacies like Pickled Herring, Whale Steak, and Krumkake.

5. Absorb the Rich History of the Czech Republic

The beauty of the Czech Republic is a tale that simply cannot be put in words but only experienced. Some of the most charming places to visit in May outside India have to be the cities of Prague, Olomouc and České Budějovice. The influence of the Bohemian era can be seen in the people, food and culture of this country even now. When visiting Prague, walking on Charles Bridge, exploring the archaic cathedrals, taking a tour of Franz Kafka’s residence, and devouring platefuls of Goulash (pork stew) and Schnitzel (breaded meats) is customary for all visitors. Witness old-world charm with Baroque fountains and medieval churches where university students often walk around defines the city of Olomouc aptly. For those who are die-hard fans of Budweiser, the city of České Budějovice would be a piece of heaven on Earth for you. Along with this, exploring tourist destinations such as the Black Tower, Church of St. Nicholas and Masne Kramy is highly recommended.

6. Dive in the Reefs of the Bahamas 

If there’s an archipelago in the world that is beyond comparison it’s the Bahamas, undoubtedly. This is because of its gorgeous 700 islands and islets that can relax even the most restless soul on the planet. Adorned with places to visit with family and friends in May set outside India, this country should be visited at least once in your lifetime. Grand Bahamas is the ideal place for sunbathing on the beach while the Paradise Island is a hub for world-class casinos and bars. For diving enthusiasts, Andros is the right place as it hosts the barrier reef and a mind-blowing coastline. Legendary stories and artifacts are found at the Pirate Museum in Nassau Bahamas, an offbeat yet fascinating tourist destination. Alongside this, tourists with an appetite mustn’t miss out authentic delicacies such as Conch (snail) fritters, Rum Cake, and Rock Lobster found at the top restaurants and shacks in the country. Now that you are inspired by this blog, remember that to visit such unique places outside India in May, you must have a well-planned itinerary along with the zeal to absorb each country’s distinct culture and vibe. However, if June is the month of travel for you, then you can also check out our recommendations of the places to visit in June outside India .

Best International Destinations For Indian Families

Photo of Sumedha Bharpilania

Indians are born travellers and we are truly a peculiar kind. While the entire world can't get enough of the concept of solo travel, we prefer going on trips with our tribe. We are constantly on the lookout for places that have a little something for people of all ages given how we usually have several generations travelling together at the same time. And since international travel is no longer reserved for the 'elite', our options have become all the more varied. However, since selecting the creme de la creme of destinations can be quite a task, this list seeks to make things easier for you:

From indulging in retail therapy at Orchard Road, gorging on bowls of Chicken Rice at Chinatown, exploring the futuristic gardens of Marina Bay, cozying up with nature inside the Jurong Bird Park and having truckloads of fun at the Universal Studios, Singapore makes it to the top of every family travel bucket list. It is a stunning island state with interesting sights, delicious food, great accommodation and convenient modes of transport. A surprisingly affordable destination, Singapore is safe and has direct flights to and from most Indian metros.

Best Places To Visit: Universal Studios Singapore, Gardens By The Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens, Singapore Flyer, Singapore Zoo, Merlion Park, Underwater World.

Best Time To Visit: February to April and July to September.

The temples and ruins of Angkor, perhaps the most popular UNESCO World Heritage Site will enthral you with their magnificence, the narrow lanes and bylanes of the capital city of Phnom Penh will bring out the explorer in you and the warmth and hospitality of the locals will spoil you for life. The history of this fallen empire, however, will leave you with vital lessons and will make you want to become a better person. Cambodia is inexpensive, convenient and is great for families with kids and the elderly.

The 15 most spectacular places to visit in India

Joe Bindloss

Dec 11, 2023 • 14 min read

places to visit outside india with family

Expect fairy-tale-like drama against a desert backdrop in magical Jaisalmer, Rajasthan © Andrii Lutsyk/ Getty Images

India’s astonishing variety of sights has to be seen to be believed. Travelers have devoted lifetimes to exploring the famous places and forgotten corners of this incredible country, driven onwards by the certainty that there’s always more to see.

Mughal palaces, towering Hindu temples, mountain monasteries, lost kingdoms, cultured cities, and genteel hill stations in the foothills of the Himalayas all jostle for attention in a country that is proudly shaking off the legacy of colonialism and repositioning itself as a global superpower. With such incredible diversity on offer, there’s just one question – where do you start?

Well, our advice is to not take on too much during a single visit. Pick an area – the tropical south perhaps, or the northern plains, or the mountain valleys of the Himalayas – and give yourself time to pause and soak up the atmosphere as you work through your must-see list .

Wherever you go, you’re guaranteed a mind-expanding and exhilarating blast of color, soul-soaring splendor, earth-shaking history and moments of pure serenity. Equal parts magic and mayhem, this mix is what makes traveling to India such an intense and addictive experience.

While this was no easy list to compile, we’re proud to present our pick of the ten best places to visit in India.

1. Agra, Uttar Pradesh

Best for romantics and fans of Mughal history

At the top of everyone’s bucket list, the Taj Mahal is as glorious as people imagine it would be – a magnificent monument to lost love, executed in pearl-white marble. Views of the world’s most beautiful building framed by a Mughal archway or floating above the misty Yamuna River will be one of the defining moments of any trip to India.

But there’s more to the former Mughal capital than the Taj. Add on a couple of days so you can visit the architecturally stunning tomb of  Emperor Akbar , his rose-red sandstone former capital at Fatehpur Sikri and sprawling Agra Fort , one of India’s most epic fortifications. Thronged by millions of visitors, Agra is not always relaxing, but it’s eternally fascinating.

2. Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

Best for intense spirituality

There are few places as beguiling and bewitching as the sacred Hindu city of Varanasi . Millennia-old death rituals play out daily at the cremation ghats that line the bank of the sacred River Ganges, while the maze-like alleyways of the nearby old town reveal dizzying surprises at every turn. We defy anyone to visit without experiencing some internal soul-searching about their place in the universe.

Be ready for some challenges. The hard-edged realities of life and death and the inequalities that continue to cause hardship for many in India are obvious on the streets of the world’s oldest living city. But there are also moments of gentleness – rise at dawn and wander the ghats (riverside steps) and you’ll see Varanasi at its most spiritual, with its attention focused on the sacred river, before the tourist bustle changes the mood.

Planning tip: The best way to appreciate Varanasi’s famous ghats is from a rowboat. Boatmen offer their services from first light at boat stations along the west bank of the Ganges, providing views of a riverfront that has changed only superficially in seven centuries.

3. Mumbai, Maharashtra

Best for urban explorers and Bollywood hopefuls

Mumbai is the perfect place to take the pulse of modern India. The most densely populated city in the subcontinent is home to Bollywood film stars, enterprising market vendors, bankers and executives rushing to work in offices, and fishing families who can trace their origins back to the days when this mighty metropolis was just a humble village.

To understand more about the disparities of life in contemporary Mumbai, take a socially responsible tour through the city’s huge and disadvantaged Dharavi district with Reality Tours & Travel ; 80% of the profits go back to social projects providing opportunities for those left behind by Mumbai’s push for success.

The city’s can’t-miss excursion is the boat trip to the 1500-year-old, UNESCO World Heritage-listed rock-cut temples of Elephanta Island , but fantastic street food is the city’s great leveler. Don’t leave without sampling Mumbai's signature snack, bhel poori – puffed rice and fried dough with lentils, onions, herbs and savory chutneys, best sampled on the beach at Chowpatty or Juhu.

Detour: With time to spare in Mumbai, head to the northern suburbs, where Sanjay Gandhi National Park protects a sprawl of dry forest, home to leopards, deer, monkeys and serene Buddhist cave temples.

View of Thikse Monastery and prayer rocks in Ladakh India

Best for an extraordinary taste of Tibet

In the far northwest of India, sheltered from the monsoon by the rain shadow of the Himalayas, the former Buddhist kingdom of Ladakh is culturally and geographically closer to western Tibet than anywhere in India. In this high-altitude moonscape, towering Tibetan monasteries melt into a landscape of barren rock and wind-sculpted hoodoos (don’t miss fabulous Hemis and Thiksey on the road linking Ladakh to Himachal Pradesh ). 

Most visitors start in the atmospheric capital, Leh , before roaming to neighboring valleys for homestay treks and trips to view turquoise salt lakes and colorful masked dances at ancient monasteries. Ladakh wasn't touched by China’s Cultural Revolution, so this is perhaps the closest independent travelers can come to experiencing the original culture of Tibet.

Planning tip: Getting to Ladakh is half the fun. Flights run to Leh even in the depths of winter, but the most enjoyable way in is overland, by road from either Srinagar in Kashmir or Manali in Himachal Pradesh. Buses and shared 4WDs run as long as the passes are open from June to the end of September, or you can tackle the route on a rented Enfield motorcycle.

5. Kolkata, West Bengal 

Best for culture vultures

The capital of colonial British India until 1911, Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) is India’s third-biggest metropolis and the country's intellectual and artistic capital. Spend a few days exploring the energetic bazaars, cultured museums and British-era landmarks, and you’ll soon fall in love with Kolkata’s irrepressible energy.

To really get to know Kolkata, sign up for a Bengali cooking course and visit the revered temple at Kalighat , where the goddess Kali is appeased with sacrifices. With more time to spare, book an overnight wildlife-watching tour to the nearby Sundarbans Tiger Reserve , a legendary stalking ground for royal Bengal tigers.

Planning tip: Try to time your visit to coincide with the festival of Durga Puja in September or October, when vividly colorful effigies of the goddess are displayed in pandals (ceremonial tents) all over the city.   

6. Jaisalmer, Rajasthan

Best for desert drama

The desert state of Rajasthan shows India at its most romantic and soft-filtered. Expect a mirage of camel caravans, ornate palaces, mighty forts, turbaned traders and intense colors, set against a backdrop of shifting desert sands. It’s unbelievably photogenic, but also firmly on the tourist map, so expect to share the experience with a crowd.

The pink-sandstone monuments of Jaipur , the ice-white lakeside palaces of Udaipur , and views of blue-hued Jodhpur from its lofty fort are all stunning experiences, but the city that delivers the biggest jolt to the senses is Jaisalmer , seeming sculpted from the living rock of the desert.

Its tangled lanes, towering fortress and beautifully ornate haveli (traditional houses) could have been plucked from the pages of One Thousand and One Nights , and the surrounding desert is the evocative setting for overnight camel safaris.

Planning tip: While it is possible to stay inside the fortified city, visitor numbers are having an impact on Jaisalmer’s historic heart. We recommend staying outside the walls instead – there are plenty of hotels and guesthouses within strolling distance of the fort.

A traditional rice barge on the backwaters of Kerala (between Alappuzha and Kollam)

7. The Kerala Backwaters

Best for lovers of slow travel

After the dusty, densely populated northern plains, tropical South India offers a lusher, more laid-back travel experience. The quintessential trip here is a slow-paced canal cruise through the emerald-green backwaters of Kerala , a 900-mile network of languid, coconut-fringed waterways, offering views of an ever-changing tableaux of South Indian life.

Hire a traditional houseboat in Alappuzha for a multiday trip, then settle in for a succulent Keralan seafood curry prepared by your personal chef as the sunset blushes over shimmering waters and silhouetted palm fronds. Post-cruise, it’s just a short hop up the coast to historic Kochi (Cochin) , with its cantilevered fishing nets and Kathakali dance theaters.

8. Bodhgaya, Bihar

Best for budding Buddhists

As the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism (plus countless smaller faiths), India is defined by sacred geography. Even here, however, few places resonate more powerfully than the Bodhi tree where Prince Siddhartha Gautama achieved enlightenment to become the Buddha (Awakened One).

The town that has grown up around this sacred spot is home to dozens of Tibetan and Southeast Asian–style temples and monasteries, with a busy program of Buddhist teachings and courses. It’s the ideal destination for any spiritual explorer.

To get a feel for Bodhgaya ’s rhythms, come early to the Mahabodhi complex and settle in beside chanting Tibetan pilgrims to meditate on the nature of impermanence. Travel experiences don’t get much more profound than this.

Planning tip: Bodhgaya is just one stop on the so-called "Buddhist circuit," taking in key locations from the life of the historical Buddha. Local buses run to nearby Rajgir, the site of one of the first Buddhist monasteries, and Nalanda's ancient Buddhist university complex.  

9. Darjeeling, West Bengal

Best for a premium cup of tea with a view

Fanned by the cool breezes of the eastern Himalayas, surrounded by manicured tea estates and basking in front of epic Himalayan views, Darjeeling is easy to fall for.

For a perfect day, watch the dawn break over 8586m (20,169ft) Kangchenjunga, learn the difference between first-flush and white teas on a plantation tour, linger over an afternoon cuppa at the  Windamere Hotel , then learn about the Tibetan experience at the Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Centre .

The classiest way to arrive is via the nostalgic, narrow-gauge toy train ; book tickets in advance and check to see if the steam service is running (the diesel train follows the same route, but has less charm). Don’t miss the Buddhist gompas (monasteries) dotted around the city. Below Darjeeling on the fringes of Ghum, historic Yiga Choeling Gompa has a special magic.

Planning tip: Darjeeling isn’t the only interesting stop in the area. Shared 4WDs buzz from Darjeeling to Kalimpong , another historic township with colorful Buddhist monasteries, Himalayan views and pretty flower nurseries. 

Virupaksha temple view from Hemakuta hill at sunset in Hampi, Karnataka

10. Hampi, Karnataka

Best for a full immersion in history

Between the 14th and 16th centuries CE, the capital of the Vijayanagar empire at Hampi was home to half a million people, but this ancient metropolis was almost completely abandoned, leaving 3700 stone monuments scattered across a surreal plain of boulders.

This is a place to linger, strolling between the boulders to find carved masonry, forgotten shrines and the handsome remains of some of South India’s most dramatic stone temples.

Glance up as you wander and you’ll see rock climbers tackling bouldering routes using chisel marks made by ancient masons. Rent a motorcycle or scooter and you can roam further afield, taking in the hilltop temple marking the spot where the monkey god Hanuman first met Lord Rama.

Planning tip: Hampi is a short bus ride from the town of Hosapete – get here by overnight train from Goa’s beaches, historic Hyderabad or the cosmopolitan southern city of Bengaluru .

11. Arunachal Pradesh

Best for stepping off the map

Tucked away near Bangladesh, the eight Northeast States – Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim – are India’s wild frontier. Until the 1990s, this region of rugged mountain valleys was mostly off-limits to foreigners, and visitor numbers are still small – people who travel here earn the right to call themselves proper explorers. 

Sikkim is the most famous destination in the Northeast States, but we’d encourage you east towards the forested foothills and jagged mountains of Arunachal Pradesh , where tribal communities follow a diverse range of traditional belief systems, from the Buddhist Monpa people of Tawang to the animist Apatani people of the Ziro valley. 

Planning tip: Travel takes a bit of effort in Arunachal Pradesh; you’ll need to apply for a permit to enter the state, and local transport is patchy. By far the easiest way to explore is with a chartered 4WD and driver (easily arranged in Guwahati in Assam).  

Women sitting beside the sacred tank at Amritsar's Golden Temple

12. Amritsar, Punjab

Best for experiencing the power of devotion

India has pilgrimage destinations to spare, but few come close to the vibrant energy of the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The most sacred site for the Sikh religion is a gleaming jewel box, floating in a mirror-like sacred pool, thronged day and night by an unbelievable mass of pilgrims. You don’t have to be spiritually inclined to feel its powerful rhythms. 

Joining devotees at the Sri Harmandir Sahib – the gold-paneled shrine at the heart of the complex – is incredibly moving. Staying overnight in the pilgrims' hostels that flank the temple compound only adds to the intensity. A donation is much appreciated for accommodation if possible, though pilgrims of all means will be accommodated if space is available. You can also sit down for meals at the temple langar (kitchen), which provides cost-free nourishment to a staggering 100,000 people per day (again, a donation is appreciated if you have the means).

Planning tip: Don’t limit your explorations to the Golden Temple – the surrounding bazaars buzz with energy and atmosphere, with vendors selling everything from embroidered chappals (sliders) to brass and polished steel pots and pans.   

13. Mysuru (Mysore), Karnataka

Best for feeling like a Maharaja

The atmospheric South Indian city of Mysuru has multiple charms: towering temples, one of India’s most evocative marketplaces, and the almost impossibly extravagant crib that is Mysuru Palace , the ancestral home of the Wadiyar maharajas. No building conjures up the extravagant lives of India’s royal rulers quite so vividly – every room is a fantasy, every ornament an heirloom. 

Around the palace are busy bazaars, rewarding museums and a string of Hindu temples in the classic Dravidian (Southern Indian) architectural style. Devote several days to wandering the streets, hiking up to the Sri Chamundeshwari Temple on Chamundi Hill and feasting on fiery vegetarian  thalis (plate meals) in Mysuru’s restaurants.  

A large tiger walking over rocks in Bandhavgarh National Park

14. Bandhavgarh National Park, Madhya Pradesh

Best for tiger encounters

The national parks of Madhya Pradesh are some of the best places on the planet to get close to royal Bengal tigers. Seeing one of these striped superstars loping out of the jungle will stay with you for a lifetime – as well as leaving you heartbroken at the thought of how few tigers still survive in the wild.

Everyone has their favorite tiger reserve, but we rate Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve near Jabalpur for the density of wildlife in its central Tala range. Around 70 tigers roam these dry forests, alongside leopards, monkeys, deer and gaur – India’s gigantic wild buffalo. There’s a high likelihood of sightings if you devote several days to 4WD safaris (elephant safaris should be avoided as riding can be harmful to these vulnerable animals). 

Planning tip: The best time to see tigers is first thing in the morning – safaris start at 5:30am to catch tigers before they stake out a shady spot in the undergrowth to sleep through the heat of the day. 

15. Madurai, Tamil Nadu

Best for religious splendor

South India's Hindu temples are a joyous celebration of the divine, decorated inside and out with vividly colorful depictions of deities and supernatural beings, both fearsome and sublime. In the southern city of Madurai , the towering gopurams (gateway towers) of the Meenakshi Amman Temple provide a three-dimensional guide to the main deities of the Hindu pantheon.

The current temple was constructed in the 17th century, but the site has been sacred to Meenakshi, the queen of the Pandya kingdom and an incarnation of the goddess Parvati, for at least 2000 years. Come early in the morning to watch sunrise bring the temple to life, then pop to the nearest branch of Murugan Idli Shop for some of the south’s best idli (steamed rice and lentil cakes).  

Detour: A short bus or train ride from Madurai, Tiruchirappalli – aka Trichy – is another top spot for temple enthusiasts. The looming Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple is one of the world’s largest Hindu shrines, covering 155 acres (63 hectares) and topped by 21 deity-encrusted towers. More temples crown the rocky outcrop at the heart of the city, offering epic views over the rooftops.

Shimla in Himachal Pradesh is undoubtedly the best place in India for a family tour, for the love for snow has no age barrier. It provides a pleasant experience for those living in the shackles of metropolitan cities saturated with industries and complexes. The scenic beauty, both in summer and winter, is considered worthy. 

However, Himachal Pradesh has much more to offer than just the excellence of Shimla. Among the best tourist places to visit in Himachal Pradesh, Manali, Dalhousie, Kasauli, etc. must be included. If you or anyone in your family decides to try something fun and thrilling, opt for trekking, skiing, paragliding, river rafting, or ice skating. You do not need to be concerned about safety as well-trained experts will accompany the activities. 

Dalhousie's rich constituents of flora and fauna once again certify it as the best family vacation destination in India. If you are a wildlife photographer or have a knack for the same, be prepared to snap some breathtaking shots of the vibrant and amazing animals during your Kalatop wildlife safari. 

You must ensure that your  Himachal tour packages offer you trips to the wonderful waterfalls to witness the beauties of monasteries in Spiti Valley and the markets selling authentic handicraft products.

  • Things to do: Explore the famous flora and fauna, wildlife photography, visit waterfalls
  • Best time to visit: February to June (If you want to enjoy something other than the snow, Himachal Pradesh is also a good summer vacation place in India with family.)

The common misconception about Goa is that it is best for an outing with friends. But, honestly, Goa is more than just the fancy beaches. Rather it is one of the best places to visit in India with family since many activities remain closed during the rainy season. 

Since it is situated on the shores of the Arabian Sea, Goa is famous for exciting water sports like snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing, etc. Also, you can opt for the dolphin cruise for a more soothing and relaxing activity. This is one of the main reasons to consider Goa as one of the best family trip places in India since kids get a golden opportunity to watch the fun-loving dolphins from such proximity.

15 Best Places to Visit in India, According to Travel Experts

F rom the alpine meadows of Kashmir to the palm-fringed beaches of Goa, these are some of the subcontinent’s most enchanting destinations.

As a former longtime Delhiite and frequent traveler to India, people often ask me what the country is like. I never know how to respond, for trying to sum up a nation as vast and diverse as India feels impossible. So, instead, I asked a few experts for their insights.

“If you visit India, you feel you have visited several countries, as every part is different,” says Mohd Shafi Billo, an inbound tour operator who specializes in helping international travelers plan their trips to the country. “It’s an exceptional destination, thanks to its culture, history, and inclusiveness of different people from different faiths, and it has everything to offer, from forts to mausoleums, wildlife tours to mountain adventures.”  

Shoba Rudra, founder and partner at hospitality consultancy Rare India , agrees. “The country is living a dynamic moment in history, ever-changing,” she says. “What's constant, however, is the vibrant culture lived through its festivals, cuisine, heritage, crafts, and performing arts.”

While it would take years to see it all, India is an approachable destination — if you can narrow things down. With that in mind, here are 15 of the best places to get you started on your sojourn to the subcontinent.

Stretching along the southernmost part of India’s Malabar Coast, the tropical state of Kerala entices visitors with its marshy backwaters, which most people visit on overnight houseboat adventures. These popular cruises “showcase lush landscapes and peaceful villages, and [give visitors] a glimpse into local life amid tranquil waters and picturesque surroundings,” says Billo. While the backwaters are a star attraction, the state offers much more to explore, from the tea plantations of Munnar, known for its cool climate and seemingly endless rolling hills, to the historic city of Kochi, celebrated in equal measure for its rich coastal history and contemporary art scene . The beaches aren’t too shabby, either. “North Kerala is also famous, as the Malabar Coast is where the spice trade flourished,” says Rudra. “The coastal area is picturesque and this region is still unexplored.”

On the opposite end of the country from Kerala, Kashmir offers entirely different — but equally captivating — landscapes. With its alpine climate, evergreen trees, and snowy winters, Kashmir is often likened to a mini Switzerland . Famed 13th-century Sufi poet Amir Khusrau once proclaimed in Farsi, “If there is a paradise on earth, it is this,” and he may have been onto something. At the heart of it all is Srinagar, Kashmir’s capital city, which is known for its elegant gardens and watery centerpiece, Dal Lake. “Highlights include staying on a houseboat or taking a shikara [traditional Kashmiri boat] ride,” says Billo, who hails from the area. Don't leave without indulging in wazwan , an opulent, meat-heavy feast that can feature up to three dozen dishes in one sitting. 

Occupying a high-altitude plateau in the northernmost reaches of India, Ladakh is characterized by otherworldly landscapes and big skies, punctuated by palatial stupas and monasteries. Many visitors come to Ladakh’s capital, Leh, during the short summer tourist season, but this surreal region offers plenty more to experience beyond the city. Billo suggests visiting the Nubra Valley, an isolated part of the old Silk Road that’s only accessible by crossing Khardung La, one of the world’s highest motorable passes. “The valley offers a glimpse into Ladakh's unique geography and cultural diversity with monasteries, quaint villages, and apricot orchards,” says Billo. The region is also rich with unusual wildlife, from elusive snow leopards to the scaled-down Bactrian camels that originated in the steppes of Central Asia.

Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

On the banks of the sacred Ganges River, the holy city of Rishikesh has held a place in the hearts of spiritually minded travelers — both from India and abroad — for generations. It’s the self-proclaimed “yoga capital of the world,” with a mix of traditional ashrams (spiritual rest houses) that cater largely to Hindu pilgrims and yoga centers that attract international visitors with teacher-training courses and meditation retreats. If you’re not into yoga, you’ll still find plenty to do here. Popular activities include visiting the ruins of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram (dubbed the Beatles Ashram in honor of its most famous former residents) to whitewater rafting adventures on the mighty Ganges. It’s also a great place for a wellness getaway, and nearby Ananda in the Himalayas was voted one of Travel + Leisure readers' favorite international spas in 2023.

Auroville, Tamil Nadu

If you’re looking for a place that’s unlike anywhere else in India — or, frankly, the world — head to the intentional community of Auroville in South India. This UNESCO-recognized global township was founded in the 1960s with the goal of "realizing human unity," beyond the illusory divisions of creed or nationality, and it's home to generations of residents from around the world. Many visitors come for an hour or two, just long enough to view Auroville’s spiritual center — the golden, dome-shaped Matrimandir . However, it’s worth sticking around a bit longer to get a feel for what the community is about. As Akash Kapur, who grew up in Auroville and authored " Better to Have Gone " and " India Becoming ," puts it: "Come to Auroville if you're interested in alternative societies, sustainable living, or spirituality, but try not to just drop in for a few hours (as many do), and instead spend some time here, really getting to know the people and their work. The community rewards sustained immersion."

Andaman Islands

Although most people associate the crystalline waters of the Andaman Sea with Thai island getaways, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in this tropical region are under Indian control. This little stretch of paradise is full of gorgeous shorelines, but most visitors devote their vacations to the island of Swaraj Dweep (formerly known as Havelock). The most popular beach on the island is Radhanagar Beach , which offers just over a mile of white sand sandwiched between tropical jungle and warm, transparent waters. Getting to this remote island requires a bit of gumption: You'll need to fly from the Indian mainland to Port Blair on South Andaman Island, then catch a ferry or charter a seaplane for the final stretch. While visitors are welcome on many islands in the chain, a few — including secluded North Sentinel Island — are off-limits. 

While many travelers see India’s capital as a jumping-off point for visiting further-afield destinations, it’s worth sticking around for a while to truly appreciate what Delhi has to offer. There’s certainly never a dull moment in this busy metropolis, whether you’re shopping for handicrafts at one of its numerous markets or learning about medieval and Mughal history at one of its three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Humayun's Tomb, Qutb Minar, and Red Fort. Although Delhi is undeniably rambunctious, it also has a quieter, more peaceful side that you can find amidst the trees and 15th-century tombs of Central Delhi’s Lodi Gardens or in the quiet interiors of the Baháʼí Lotus Temple.

Taj Mahal, Agra, Uttar Pradesh

Many travelers to India put the 17th-century Taj Mahal at the top of their list. This white marble mausoleum is easily India’s most recognizable structure — and it’s one of the New Seven Wonders of the World . This popular attraction also has a romantic backstory. “This iconic symbol of love is renowned for its architectural beauty, intricate marble work, and the captivating story behind its creation by emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal,” notes Billo. The bodies of the emperor and his wife remain interred in the Taj to this day. 

Jaipur. Rajasthan

The capital of Rajasthan and one-third of North India’s popular Golden Triangle tourist route (which also includes Agra and Delhi), Jaipur is a must-visit for those who love architecture and shopping. “The Pink City, as it's nicknamed, offers a rich cultural heritage, stunning [landmarks] like Amber Fort, vibrant bazaars, and intricate handicrafts,” says Billo. Many of Jaipur's key attractions are found in the historic walled part of the city, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019. Highlights include Jantar Mantar (a collection of oversized — and fully functional — astronomical instruments dating to the 17th century) and Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds, a honeycomb-shaped palace designed with tiny windows that allowed air to flow freely through its interior.

Jodhpur, Rajasthan

Dubbed the Blue City because of the cerulean-colored buildings that extend for miles through the oldest part of town, Jodhpur has long attracted travelers eager to explore the ramparts of the larger-than-life Mehrangarh Fort. It’s also home to the grandiose Umaid Bhawan Palace , which made headlines in 2018 when Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot there. While Jodhpur’s beautiful, regal architecture is reason enough to visit, there’s more to the city than massive forts and grand palaces. “The area around the Toorji ka Jhalra stepwell in the old city is fun to explore,” says hotelier Sapna Bhatia, owner of Kaner Retreat and Jodhpur-area native. “For nature enthusiasts, there’s the Rao Jodha desert park near Mehrangarh Fort.”

Udaipur, Rajasthan

T+L readers' favorite city in Asia and second favorite city in the world , Udaipur very much fits the bill of a fairy tale destination. Nicknamed the City of Lakes, thanks to its seven lakes, this gorgeous destination is home to some of India's finest luxury hotels plus historic whitewashed palaces, including the magnificent City Palace, an 11-palace complex that houses hotels, a huge museum with an impressive collection of European crystal, and a royal residence. A short boat ride from the palace lies the 18th-century Taj Lake Palace, an opulent palace-turned-hotel in the middle of Lake Pichola. It’s a quick drive from The Oberoi, Udaivilas , a purpose-built palatial hotel with onion-domed cupolas and a moat-like swimming pool that directly connects to some of the rooms. 

If you’re looking for a less-frequented, but no less amazing, alternative to more touristed states such as Rajasthan, consider Gujarat. “Under-explored but culturally rich, this state in India is a tapestry of festivals, textiles, architectural heritage, communities, and landscape,” says Rudra. Gujarat was also the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi, who led the Salt March, one of his most famous acts of peaceful protest, through the state in 1930. Rudra suggests visiting the National Salt Satyagraha Memorial , which “honors the activists through murals, installations, sculptures, art, and related film.” It's also worth checking out the Kutch district, known for its distinct metal bells , which were originally used for keeping track of livestock and are now popular as decorative wind chimes.

Kaziranga National Park, Assam

The northeast Indian state of Assam is home to a treasure for wildlife enthusiasts: Kaziranga National Park . This expansive, UNESCO-listed wildlife refuge near the borders of Bangladesh and Bhutan has the largest population of Indian one-horned rhinoceroses on the planet, providing a home to roughly 2,000 of these massive beasts. Although rhinos are the star attraction on park safaris, all sorts of animals live here, including tigers, elephants, gibbons, sloth bears, and a small number of endangered Ganges River dolphins. 

Historic, glitzy, and positively gargantuan, Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is easily one of India’s most cosmopolitan destinations. This city by the sea is the nation's financial and entertainment capital, and while you’re unlikely to rub shoulders with Bollywood stars here, you're sure to see a lot of impressive attractions in very little time. Take a boat out to Elephanta Island to explore fifth– and sixth–century rock-hewn cave temples, marvel at the grand Indo-Saracenic architecture at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus , or see thousands of clothes hanging out to dry at Dhobi Ghat, the world's largest open-air laundry. Then, head to the sleek neighborhood of Bandra West, where many of Mumbai’s best restaurants and hotels are located, including Taj Lands End, voted T+L readers' favorite city hotel in India in 2023.

India’s smallest state, Goa, is arguably its top beach destination, where long days of swimming and sunbathing turn into longer nights of partying on the sand. While Goa has been known as a hippie haven since the 1960s, it's started to shed its reputation in recent decades. It’s still very much a party state, though it also draws in families and couples in search of sea and sun, sans nightlife. It’s a great place for history buffs as well, with numerous seaside forts and UNESCO-recognized churches that were built when Goa was under Portuguese rule. And while the destination has always been loved for its fiery dishes that combine traditional Konkani ingredients with Portuguese influences, it has also emerged as a culinary hot spot , where a new generation of chefs is showcasing everything from Japanese yakitori to jackfruit tamales.

Sir Keir Starmer and his shadow health secretary, Wes Streeting, have just been speaking to a room packed full of party activists in the West Midlands.

The shadow health secretary touted Labour's plan to deliver 40,000 new NHS appointments each week, saying the state of the health service should "shame" Rishi Sunak.

He introduced an NHS worker and then an RAF veteran, who both offered their endorsement to Labour.

Sir Keir recounted a visit to Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool, and said he was "really angry" after finding out more children are being admitted "to have their rotten teeth taken out than any other operation" - something he blames on the Tories.

He hit out at the PM for saying the country has "turned a corner", arguing that normal people do not feel that at all.

Sir Keir argued that his "first steps" are the way to build a foundation to "rebuild our country".

In closing, he said: "Move forward with Labour - say no more chaos, no more division. Turn the page, change, and build our country and take it forward with Labour."

MPs have criticised the government over its Rwanda scheme, saying the Home Office has "does not have a credible plan" for sending asylum seekers to the country 

The Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said the department had "little to show" for the "significant sums of money" spent so far on the policy.

Its latest report, published today, says the Home Office has "continually failed to be transparent with parliament about how many people will be relocated, and the potential costs of the programme".

PAC praised efforts to move asylum seekers out of hotels, but said the "assessment of the requirements for setting up alternative accommodation in large sites fell woefully short of reality and risked wasting taxpayers' money".

The new sites would not house "anywhere near" as many people as promised, it said.

"We are concerned that the Home Office does not have a credible plan for implementing the Rwanda partnership," the report concluded.

Rishi Sunak has been ordered by a High Court judge to confirm when the first Rwanda deportation flight will take off, as the government was accused of providing "insufficient clarity" due to its changing position.

He has downplayed the chances of a flight taking off before the election on 4 July.

Scottish First Minister John Swinney has been speaking on the SNP's campaign trail in Fife this afternoon.

It comes as former first minister and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon confirms she will be on the trail as the party fights the general election.

Asked by our Scotland correspondent  Connor Gillies whether Ms Sturgeon would be an asset or a liability to the campaign, Mr Swinney said: "Of course Nicola Sturgeon's an asset."

"She's an incredibly dynamic individual who led Scotland through really, really difficult times," he said, adding that he has spoken to people who said they admired her leadership.

"Nicola is welcome on the campaign trail," Mr Swinney added.

It's 1.30pm - here's your lunchtime run-down.

We're still in the early days of the election campaign, but there's been plenty of divisive policy announcements and rows making headlines.

Let us get you up to speed on everything you may have missed so far today...

  • Sir Keir Starmer  has been out and about in the West Midlands to promote his pledge to clear the backlog of patients waiting more than 18 weeks for NHS treatment within five years of government, if the party gets into power;
  • But the message has been completely smothered by a lack of clarity on whether the veteran MP Diane Abbott will be able to stand for Labour at the general election;
  • In short - Ms Abbott was suspended over a year ago due to comments suggesting Jewish people do not face racism, and that instead they suffer prejudice similar to "redheads";
  • The party whip was restored yesterday - but she told Sky News that she has been barred from standing for the party at the election;
  • The Labour leader said it in not the case, but "no decision has been taken";
  • Our political correspondent Tamara Cohen  says Ms Abbott's allies "do not believe it was the leader's team who briefed that she was being barred, but now it is out there, they are still not getting on the front foot and denying it";
  • Tamara adds that it is not necessarily that she wants to stand, but wanted to be let back into the party and have a proper send off, but "it seems the Labour leadership are allowing this to rumble on for several more days";
  • Rishi Sunak  is in the South West of England today promoting his promise to replace "rip-off degrees" with 100,000 apprenticeships each year by the end of the next parliament;
  • He got off the train in Cornwall and bought breakfast for the travelling media pack, including our political correspondent Rob Powell , who was not best pleased about the lack of ketchup on the bacon sarnies...
  • On more serious matters - the PM was quick to call for "transparency" from Labour over the Diane Abbott situation when speaking to broadcasters;
  • But his last 20 hours or so have been overtaken by the news that Labour's Angela Rayner has been cleared by police after one of his deputy chairs made a police complaint;
  • He swatted away suggestions that pushing for the probe was "a waste of police time" - and pivoted to attacking Ms Rayner;
  • In more bad news for the PM - junior doctors have announced they will be going on strike just days before the election as part of their pay dispute, saying they are "fed up and out of patience with the government";
  • He has lots of work to do to make up ground against Labour - an exclusive Sky News / YouGov poll reveals that the opposition is a whopping 27 points ahead;
  • It should be noted that the poll was conducted AFTER his big offering of a national service policy was unveiled this weekend, which could be worrying for the embattled PM.
  • Elsewhere, the SNP is demanding that Labour follows their lead and renationalises railways across the UK;
  • The party's Westminster leader, Stephen Flynn, criticised Sir Keir Starmer, saying the Diane Abbott situation is "a pretty sorry state of affairs";
  • The Lib Dems  have been launching their campaign in Wales, with a pledge to provide £1bn of extra funding for agriculture;
  • The Welsh first minister and Labour leader could be facing a vote of no confidence after the Welsh Tories tabled a motion.

If you've still got a few more mouthfuls of lunch to go, here are a couple of other stories that may interest you:

Stick with us for all the latest throughout the afternoon.

The NHS, rightly, is a key election battleground. 

So it's no surprise Labour has targeted the health service early on in the campaign - and they have one big advantage over the Conservatives. 

It was under a Labour government that NHS waiting lists came down to a record low and satisfaction with the health service grew to a record high. 

Under a Conservative government, the opposite is true. 

But how achievable is Labour's target of cutting the 18-week waiting list within five years? 

Public health leaders have described the aim as "bold" and say it took Labour 10 years to do it the last time they were in power. 

Labour says it will do this by making thousands of appointments available at weekends and in the evenings. 

Making use of empty operating theatres is smart, some trusts are already doing this right now, but it all depends on the availability of a trained, willing and able workforce. 

Labour says no staff member will be forced to work extra shifts and can refuse without any comeback - but this is a workforce that is burnt out and stressed. 

Even if they wanted to help with this huge push, physically and mentally many might not be in a position to help. 

Labour also says it will spend millions raised through scrapping non-dom tax schemes on extra scanners and diagnostic equipment. 

That's great - but again, the crucial question is where will we find the staff to make these machines work.

We've just heard from Sir Keir Starmer outside a Labour Q&A event with medical students in Worcester.

As well as being asked about Diane Abbott ( see 12.14 post ), the Labour leader was asked about the newly-announced junior doctor strikes which will take place in the lead-up to the election.

Sir Keir said he was "shocked" that the government had allowed the situation to reach this point and added that a settlement should have been negotiated.

"What they've effectively done is kicked it the other side of the general election. That's unforgivable," he said.

Sir Keir said he did not want the strike to go ahead due to the impact on patients, and said it would fall to Labour to settle the issue if they were to be elected into government.

The head of the UK's biggest nursing union is stepping down to try to become an MP in the general election.

Professor Pat Cullen, chief executive and general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, has announced her bid to be elected as an MP for Sinn Fein in Fermanagh South Tyrone.

She became the public face of the biggest nursing strike in history last year, as she led her union through several months of walkouts over pay and conditions, often joining RCN members on picket lines.

'The honour of my life'

Prof Cullen said in a statement: "This was the hardest decision to make, and we have achieved so much in three very different and difficult years."

She said it had been the "honour of my life" to have served in the RCN and "to provide leadership every day to hundreds of thousands of hard-working nurses and healthcare staff who always prioritise the delivery of high-quality care to patients".

Paul Vaughan, who chairs the RCN Council, said Prof Cullen had been a "tremendous leader".

By Tomos Evans , Wales reporter

Welsh First Minister Vaughan Gething is set to face a motion of no confidence next week.

Mr Gething has only been in post since March but his government has since been through what he described as a "difficult" time.

The motion of no confidence has been tabled by the Welsh Conservatives, the largest opposition party in the Senedd, and is set to take place on 5 June.

Mr Gething has faced questions over a controversial £200k donation to his leadership campaign from a man convicted of environmental offences.

He has refused calls for the money to be returned, and remaining funds have instead gone to "wider progressive causes".

He has said the donation was within the rules but has commissioned a review of future political donations.

Mr Gething was also accused of having misled the COVID Inquiry after a text message emerged in which he said he would delete messages in a ministerial group chat.

The first minister insisted the messages related to internal Labour Party matters.

He then sacked Hannah Blythyn, a minister in his government, for allegedly leaking them to the media - allegations she denies.

Victoria Atkins has called for Labour to condemn a decision by junior doctors to strike during the election campaign.

In a post to X, the health secretary said the announcement of fresh strikes from 27 June to 2 July "on Labour's health day shows this was only ever political and not about patients or staff".

She said the decision was a "highly cynical tactic", adding: "This Conservative government has taken the tough decisions to keep public spending down to bear down on inflation, which is now back to normal.

"Labour would be in the hands of their union paymasters - meaning more spending and higher taxes."

Junior doctors are striking as part of their long-running dispute over pay, the British Medical Association said (see more in 11.14 post).

Our political correspondent Tamara Cohen just spoke to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer about the row surrounding Diane Abbott.

He says she has not been barred from standing for the party at the election, despite reports suggesting otherwise yesterday and the veteran MP claiming they were true (see pinned post).

But by saying no decision had yet been made, and likely wouldn't come until next week, Tamara says Sir Keir's "allowing this to rumble on for several more days".

Ms Abbott's supports "in this confusing situation, feel she has been poorly treated", says Tamara.

"Even though who disagree with Diane Abbott's politics feel she has a legacy in the party as the first black woman MP and there's a desire for her to be rehabilitated."

A reminder that Ms Abbott was suspended over a year ago for a letter she wrote for The Observer newspaper, in which she suggested Jewish people don't experience racism but rather prejudice like redheads.

She swiftly apologised and retracted the comments, but only had the whip restored yesterday despite a party investigation reportedly concluding several months ago.
