It’s that time of the year where you sweat even when you are showering. Yep, you got it, its summer! Summer is everyone’s favourite all around because of the beaches, the girls in the bikinis *wink*, the shirtless boys *wink wink*...honestly, who doesn’t like summer?  The tan on the skin is annoying for some and amusing for others ‘cos apparently, it’s a “memory” of the good times spent under the sun. Beaches are not the only thing you can enjoy, though. You can visit chilly places and cool yourself a bit. Of course, these are not the only things to do in summer. Get up and take a vacation with whomever to the places that you absolutely must visit during this summer season:


Goa

The Indian Miami you could say. This state has beaches everywhere along the Portuguese colonial sites. Tourists from across the globe visit Goa during the summers to get their perfect summer body *cries* tanned.  Make sure to never come with your parents because they just might not let you visit there again. They will judge you (believe me!).
  • Must See attractions - If you are looking for something even more interesting and new, then gamble! It's legal in Goa. Moreover, it’s crazier that they have casinos onshore as well. Now that is something you would enjoy doing! Maybe after that, you can go and pray to the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church.
  • Best time to Visit – It would definitely be the summers because the warmth of the rays and the coolness of the water is a perfect tinder match.
  • Eateries – Tuna Teriyaki, Sakana, Vagator offers two slabs of tuna that should be big enough to satisfy any appetite that is accompanied with rice, miso soup and salad and Rotisserie chicken. The Saturday Night Market, Arpora offers chicken loaded with flavour and aromatics with crispiness on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands

This heaven on earth is an archipelago that will leave you in awe with its beauty, and wild with the clear waters for you to swim in and enjoy the nature around you. The feeling of warm water touching your skin is sublime. Scuba diving is also offered if you are finally bored of just lazing around in the water.
  • Must see attractions - You might also want to try surfing at the Great Nicobar Island (only if you know how) or else you can always YouTube stuff, yeah? Andaman and Nicobar is the perfect honeymoon destination. Neil Island offers scuba diving, sea resorts and of course, beaches. So you and your partner can have the most special honeymoon of your lives.
  • Best time to visit – Between October and May because it’s also the time for the annual tourism festival.
  • Eateries – Blue Sea! Neil Island offers the amazingly delicious seafood for your taste buds to devour and barefoot bars and restaurants. Port Blair also offers Italian food if seafood is not preferred. They also have Indian cuisine restaurants like Chand that offers finger licking good food.

Ladakh
If you’re not a sunshine lover, then get yourself tested ASAP! Nah, just playing! The wind is needed because the summers can drain us out totally and the heat and sweat could actually at one point get annoying, resulting in you becoming lazier than you actually are. The chilly region lets you enjoy the calm and chaos free surroundings leaving you in peace with the breath-taking views and the beauty it offers.
  • Must see attractions - You can go and camp in the mountains with your friends. Just keep an eye out for the cannibals (referring to the Hills Have Eyes) or watch the sunrise by the lake Pangong Tso and admire the reflection of the mountains in the Tsomoriri Wetland Conservation Reserve and just take in the beauty of Ladakh.
  • Best time to visit – From June to September is the region’s summer.
  • Eateries – Momos, the food for the cold weather because it’s served with a yummy warm soup, chilli sauce and Thukpa, meaning noodles in the Tibetan language that is served with soup along with chicken and veggies.

Darjeeling

Don’t go speaking Japanese, just in case. The Tibetans are really adorable and the language spoken is not understandable and you will definitely feel the urge to smother them when they speak but don’t do that. Instead, visit the tea gardens; travel in the toy train that’s incidentally not a toy. Visit the Mt. Kanchenjunga, the highest peak in the world.
  • Must see attractions - Add Tiger hill to your list and no, it’s not tiger shaped as such. Tiger hill is located in the Indian State of West Bengal and is the crown of Ghoom. After all the pain you have taken to go about in Darjeeling, visit the Darjeeling Peace Pagoda where you can look for peace because Google ain't giving you that.
  • Best time to visit – April to June or October to December.
  • Eateries – Kunga restaurant is a must go, it offers all types of cuisines from Tibetan to Indian followed by Chinese, Asian soup and Nepalese.

Mumbai

Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, was, has and always will be one of the most happening cities. Well, this could be the New York of India.
  • Must see attractions - South Bombay also known as SOBO is the poshest area in Mumbai and has a vintage feeling to it because of the Hotel Taj, Queens Necklace and of course, the most famous Gateway of India that has stood on the Mumbai Harbour waterfront since forever. There is a lot of hype for Bollywood movies and actors; a huge number of fans tend to stand outside their favourite actor’s house just to receive a wave from them.
  • Best time to visit – November to February offers pleasant weather, March to May where summer starts rising and June to October the monsoon begins.
  • Eateries – Vada pav is the cheapest and the most mouth-watering snack of Mumbai followed by roadside Frankie and bhelpuri on the beach.

Ooty

Ooty is a town and municipality in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The name may sound similar to something we hear these days but the place is blessed with beauty.
  • Must see attractions - If you are curious about discovering the different colours of roses, then visit the Government Rose Garden where you will be introduced to various kinds of roses. But do not pluck them ‘cos your loved ones deserve something much better than a rose. Want to have some alone time? Then go on and sit near the Ooty Lake without any disturbance and spend some quality time with yourself just looking at the waters and enjoying the foliage around you. Try to be less self-obsessed and more nature-obsessed.
  • Best time to visit – March to June offers pleasant summer, July to September offers the beauty after heavy rains and October to February offers the chilly windy climate for you to roam about and discover beauty.
  • Eateries - Earl’s secret, Kings Cliff offers lip smacking food outdoors with a scenic view. Ooty coffee shop is available for you to enjoy the varieties of teas and coffees during winters.
