This place offers perfect weather during winters. Just like it would be in heaven. The landscapes and the greenery will not let you leave this place. It’s simply beautiful.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sriman Abhimanyu shares, “Alleppey in Kerala must be the Capital of Heaven. It was such an awesome place to visit and such amazing scenery with green fields all around and huge coconut trees. The food, especially savouries like Pazham Pori ( Banana Fritters ), Chakka Varuthathu ( Jackfruit Chips ), Neimeen Porichathu ( Seer Fish Fry ) were awesome to taste. Please try to taste the dishes made from coconut oil and especially, the traditional Kerala Hand Pound Rice with Sambar.”

The most ideal destination in winters? Hampi it is! Besides the interesting mythical story this place holds, the architecture and the weather of this place will keep you engaged for a long time.

HolidayIQ Traveller Jyoti Sharma shares, “The colour of this place is sepia with patches of greenery around. Coconut trees, banana fields and mango trees add to the drama. The undeveloped landscape is covered with natural boulders perched upon one another defying the laws of gravity. It feels as if they are romancing in unique positions. It is one of the most unique sites one could ever experience in India. And the best part is, it always leaves you wondering about the story behind each boulder. These boulders are living witness of the mighty Vijayanagara Empire of the 13th century. I am awe-inspired and in love with this place.”

8. Lakshadweep

The climate here is humid, warm and pleasent during this time of the year. This is the best season to visit the islands in the Indian Ocean that offer activities like bird watching, scuba diving and snorkelling. 

HolidayIQ Traveller Devashish Tripathi shares, "Lakshadweep, an archipelago like none other. Beautiful, tranquil and calm turquoise waters. Amazing view of Corals and Scuba diving and snorkelling traverses you to a new world, the amazingly beautiful Aquatic life, all simply mesmerising. Places to visit - mainly the beaches at Kavaratti, Agatti and Bangaram, the ones which I visited. In addition one can have a birds eye view of the island of Kavaratti from the lighthouse after an ardours climb up the stairs."


9. Kovalam - Nothing But Relaxing

Avoid going here in summers for you'll melt away. Winters? The most perfect places to be in! 

HolidayIQ Traveller Deepti Otagiri shares, "Kovalam is beautiful and one of the untouched beaches, that's one thing which I liked. Its calm and not crowded. Clean beach. Perfect place for those who like to spend weekend on beaches. There are various other places for tourists like temples, museum and aquarium, it has different varieties of fishes, well maintained.
The local Kerala food options are very less, mostly food is continental and North-Indian. There is one good Punjabi restaurant, but poor management."
