On a day to day basis, we all are consistently on the go. There is office, school, after-school programmes, social obligations and other activities. This leaves all of us with minimal time to sit together and have a conversation. Vacations pull the family together making us realise that quality time is vital.
What do you imagine your holiday to be? Do you see your family lying on the beach or enjoying in a resort pool, hiking mountains or exploring a sanctuary, discovering a new country or a hill station nearby? We have a beautiful option for every fantasy of yours.
Family vacations are the perfect time to create lasting memories and strengthen bonds. Here are some fabulous ideas to reconnect and relax!
1. Choose a Wildlife Experience
Everyone likes to go to the hills in the summers. How about taking a detour from this predictable idea? Did you know summer is the best time to spot wildlife? The scorching heat of the sun dries the grass making animals quite visible in their natural habitat. Also, the thirsty animals visit the waterholes more frequently, making it easy to sight them.
Opt for the morning hours for the safari. The weather will be conducive for this adventure. If you don’t have toddlers, then you must consider a family vacation to the wildlife reserves in India.
Some of the best National Parks to visit are the Corbett National Park, Ranthambore National Park, Bandipur National Park, Bandhavgarh National Park, Kaziranga National Park, and Periyar National Park.
2. Cruising on Rivers and Seas
Most of us presume a cruising holiday is only possible abroad. It’s time to shatter this myth. This summer take your family on an excellent cruising tour and get the international feel on your home grounds.
Some of best choices include a cruise on the River Ganga, on Kerela’s backwaters, and in the water channels of Sunderbans. While sea cruising is a possibility in Goa, Kochi, and Mangalore; you could explore rivers like Brahmaputra and Mandovi.
3. Club Learning With Fun
Most kids are crazy about cheese. Why not offer them know-how on this favourite milk product?
Many of us are unaware of the cheese making farms in India. Yes, I know you are surprised! These farms pave an opportunity for understanding and learning the process of cheese making. Moreover, your stay in the countryside will be an entirely novel experience for the kids.
Go ahead and make the cheese of your choice. Choose your destination from Acres Wild in Coonor, Cinnabar Farms in Kodaikanal, and La Ferme Cheese in Auroville. So what is it going to be for you – mozzarella, gouda, brie or camembert?
4. Relish the Houseboat Experience
There’s nothing that can compare to a houseboat experience. While the floating houseboats in Srinagar highlight the life on Dal Lake, the cruising ones in Alleppey and Kumarakom offer insight into the simple village lifestyle of the locals.
This vacation will usher an unforgettable experience and help your kids learn about the culture and food of different places.
5. Soak in the Beach
Despite the sweltering summer, the charm of a beach is unbeatable. Beaches experience tropical weather, which implies the temperatures range between 23 and 35-degree Celsius. So in effect, it isn’t excessively hot. I guess we’ve given you sufficient reason to plan a beach vacation.
Some of our favourites include Radhanagar Beach in Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Kovalam Beach in Kerela, Tarkali Beach in Maharashtra, and Palolem and Varca Beach in Goa.
In case, you haven’t noticed yet; this blog is about breaking the routine. We canvass trying something new this summer season.
We hope we have filled your mind with bold and novel ideas. Ensure you plan right and make your summer vacation a memorable one!
