January is the perfect time to start the year in Goa, and we all know why. There is nothing like some beach therapy. Rann Utsav in Gujarat will also be on for the month, so culture seekers know where we are pointing at.

March 22 is a work day, so you better play your cards well and sneak out again with a leave for a grand Holi break. A long weekend plan never looked this easy, right?

Well yes, all roads should lead to Ladakh and Spiti in September for the winter is yet to set in and the monsoon deluge in gone too. Thank us later, book that trip now.

December 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 (Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)

A winter extravaganza in the Rann of Kutch or Rajasthan is essential in December. You can, of course, go on a winter expedition in Ladakh to get off from the tourist circuit.
