Kerala backwaters are listed as one of the most romantic getaways in India.

Did anyone think of visiting the North Eastern states during December? No? Why not? The Hornbill festival celebrated annually in Nagaland is one that demands your presence at least once in your life.
The folk music, performances, and traditional dances reflect Nagaland’s local culture and can make you feel like you were missing out on it while living your focused life in the city. There’s more to the Hornbill festival than this. There are bands that come to perform here as a part of the Hornbill Rock Festival. Are you still looking for reasons not to visit Nagaland? We hope not.
Once upon a time, there were people who had Ooty on their travel lists. However, in more recent times, Ooty started getting replaced by Coorg, Munnar, and other northern cities and villages. The charm of this hilly place is intact with its hills, thick forests, grasslands, and its signature slopes of tea gardens. Ooty feels like you’re amidst the best things the world has to offer. If you think you need to be among the clouds and lots of green, head to Ooty.
