So the summer is approaching and we can all feel the temperatures rise. This is usually the season when everyone suggests taking cover from the scorching sun by doing something indoors. India, however, has some fantastic places which are inviting and seemingly more charming during the summer. The absence of swarming touristy crowds and pocket friendliness of travel beckons an escape.

Roadlink has all it takes to prepare yourself for a fun, safe and memorable vacation during the hot summer months!

5 Reasons why Summer is the Best Time to Travel:

  1. Goa
  2. Mussoorie (Uttarakhand)
  3. Jaipur (Rajasthan)
  4. Srinagar (Jammu & Kashmir)
  5. Pondicherry

1. Goa that is less crowded and more luring

Goa

Why: Synonymous with fun, frolic, food and an enduring nightlife, this beach paradise is spectacular during summer. The crowds die down, the cost of hotels, food and almost everything else plummets, presenting a tantalising option of a getaway that beats the daily grind.

Roadlink reviewer describes his summer experience in Goa saying, “I fell in love with Palolem and decided to stay there for my entire trip. The beach attracts more foreign tourists than the beaches of North Goa. You have very affordable yet beautiful beach huts where one can enjoy the stay. The proximity of some really amazing shacks right in front of the huts makes the stay even more memorable.”

2. Himalayan adventure, Mussoorie

Why: Just before families deal with the summer holidays, Mussoorie is calm peaceful and uncrowded. This is also the best time to explore trekking, camping and rock climbing in these parts of the mighty Himalayas.  Mussoorie is a popular choice amongst travellers because of its scenic views, lush green hills, amazing views of the Doon Valley and Shiwalik ranges on the south. Weather is the main attraction of Mussoorie as even during the summer months it’s cool and pleasant.

Roadlink Trips reviewer Suresh Mahajan says, “Mussoorie is very close to Delhi and very easy to commute to. When you think of spending the weekend on a hill station, it’s Mussoorie that comes to mind. It has excellent weather during summers. ‘Kempty fall’ is the USP of Mussoorie and you cannot resist being there.

3. Affordable royalty, Jaipur

Why: The Pink City evokes the opulent royal family that once ruled the region. With gardens, courtyards and museums, part of the city palace is still a royal residence. Known for grand accommodations, the summer discount makes it possible to stay at an old palace turned modern hotel, on a budget.  Cooling off at a luxury pool during the day while exploring the culture and history of the region during the pleasant evenings makes this an unmissable summer getaway.  

Roadlink viewer Divya describes her summer visit by saying, “Jaipur trip turned out to be a great one. We stayed at Jai Mahal Palace. Jai Mahal lawns are awesome and if one doesn’t spend at least a part of the evening here, the stay is a waste. The most rewarding were the Rajasthani folk dance in the evening.”

4. The spectacular Tulip Festival, Srinagar

Why: Straight out of the Bollywood movies! Take a romantic walk and admire the thousands of blooms spread over an astounding five hectares of land- creating a riot of reds, yellows, pinks, whites and the most spectacular of blues and purples. If this is not reason enough, visit the festival for their Kashmiri folk songs, local handicrafts, and authentic Kashmiri cuisine.

Manoj says, “Srinagar is a good destination to visit in March. If you visit during March end to April 2nd week you can see the dazzling rainbow colours of the Tulip Festival.”

5. Dolphins, wine and French food, Pondicherry

Why: Walk down the historic promenade, get blessed by an elephant, go boating or spirituality, Pondicherry has something for everyone. Off-season rates and less tourist crowd make this an excellent summer getaway.

Priyam Goyal says, “We took an impromptu road trip to Pondicherry in March. Though the weather is hot and humid, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The city has some nice places to eat and is a haven for seafood lovers. The Promenade is the landmark spot of the city and the entire tourist population flocks there in the evenings. Chunnambar Boathouse and Paradise Island is a must-visit and one can easily spend an entire day there.”
