Here’s where to go in India this March for a relaxing vacation!


March is the month that lies on the brink of summer and spring; one of those times in the year when a vacation is practically irresistible to score. This month spots the rising of summer in most of the regions of India, and this is just the perfect time to witness the lush green tea estates, majestic beaches, and blooming flowers. Here is a list of 5 best places in India to visit during March for a relaxing vacation:

1. Goa :

One of the smartest moves to make this march is to visit Goa. It is one of the best places in India not only because of its soothing climate but also to witness the state’s biggest Hindu folk festival called Shigmo. You can as well witness the nightlife at all bars, pubs, and restaurants in Goa. March is the month to truly live the Goan life and rest all day on the pristine beaches at peace. Also, the number of tourists visiting Goa is comparatively less in the month of March, meaning cheaper costs everywhere.
