Remember the times he made sure to leave all his work aside just to drop you to school on time? Pack his bags for a change - and take him on a road trip filled with yummy stops! Put the windows down play his favourite songs and drive down to the most awesome weekend getaway with a difference!

Priyam Goyal: We just decided to take a road trip to Pondicherry. We started our journey at 6 30 in the morning from Hosur Road Bangalore. We took the NH-66. The roads are pretty good. There was a snitch at Krishnagiri where there was construction going on the highway. That apart the roads are six lane highways with smooth flowing traffic. The route is peppered with highway dhabas and tea stalls. There are some prominent hotels en-route. You can make a pit stop at Sarovar Portico near Hosur or McDonalds near Krishnagiri.

For the adventure-fanatic father, there’s no better ticket than one to Havelock. Spectacular views, beaches and so many water sports. Snorkeling is a must here. Barefoot's 66 year old retired Asian elephant is the last of the famous ocean swimming elephants of the Andaman Islands.

Dheeraj : Playing with Rajan the elephant is a must. The experience is mind-blowing.

If you are the baby of a foodie dad, take him for a food vacation to Kochi. Remember the  Sundays you had a grand feast because he was the King of the kitchen. Time to return the love. From traditional thali on a banana leaf to delicious beef fry and porota, dad will surely love it.

Sushma Biswas: The colorful fishes, turtles, prawns, squids and jellyfishes won't let you get bored.

The first bike, the perfect birthday cake, the first mobile phone or that beautiful birthday dress!  Time you surprise him with a plantation holiday in Rock Haven Hermitage, Kerala.

Anand Viswanantha: This place has lots of coffee, tea plantations and also abundant greenery to keep you interested. But if you like to read, relax and have good food, you can consider their hospitality and delicacy they provide.

Fathers can be easily persuaded to give new things a try when it comes to alcohol. Stay at the Beyond Sula. If you and your father like to bond over food, Café Rose has an impressive array of dishes to check out. Go for a leisurely bicycle ride on the winding country road or just enjoy delicious food while sipping on Sula wines.

Balraj Thapa: A trip to vineyard along with the wine tasting ritual is an unforgettable experience. This trip should not be missed by wine lovers.

6. He taught you everything there is to know about life, spend quality time camping

From wiping tears to teaching us that a scrape on the knee was not the end of the world, dad’s have taught us everything that we know about life. Why not share the love with a beautiful camping holiday amidst mountains at Kudremukh ? Maybe trek the mountains too.

Amulya: It takes around 8 hrs to reach Kudremukh from bangalore. The roads are pretty decent. The ghats section starts once we are close to Belur. One need to travel at least 3 hrs in the ghat section. One can see Coffee and tea estates on either sides of road. One would surely enjoy the beauty of nature but at the same time the journey would be bit tiring due to curve path.

You will remember his constant annoyance when you have a kid, say thank you by treating him to a yoga retreat in Rishikesh.

Parth Sabarwal: Rishikesh is the place where saints gathered many years ago for Tapasya of god and demand for Ganges, this place is good for peace for body and soul. If you reached here you will feel the feeling of peace and meditation of your body and mind automatically.
