2013 is almost to an end and we all have started making our
travel plans for the New Year’s. Many of us have the habit of making a bucket
list, which include the destinations one would want to visit. So today let’s
see 3 of such destinations for your family vacation in the coming new year:
1) New York City, USA: NYC as most of us know it, surely has something that makes us feel as though real life has morphed into cinematography. It’s the big yellow taxis, the attitude and the iconic buildings; everything is recognizable from a thousand shows and hundreds of songs. This is a surprisingly stimulating place to go for kids of all ages, with its museums and art galleries, Central Park and the High Line Park, the hot dogs and who can miss the New York pizza. This year, One World Trade Centre, on the site of Ground Zero, opens for business, giving us the reason to visit this city even more in 2014. Bronx Zoo has a butterfly garden with 1000 butterflies and moths, and the Gorilla Forest’s 6.5-acre habitat, which the kids will love.
2) Kerala, India: The colour and brilliance of Kerala makes it a thrilling choice for family travel. Elephants, palaces, castles, trains, beaches, jungles and wildlife parks are all ingredients to help keep everyone in the family happy. Kerala is a family-friendly place, more laid-back than other regions, greener, slower paced, and even the food is less spicy and sweetened with coconut milk. There are also lots of national parks for elephant spotting, palm-fringed beaches and boat trips along the lush canals of the backwaters.
3) Italy: Italians love family, so in this Beautiful Country there’s no need to ghettoize yourself at kid-oriented beach clubs. You’ll get an effusive welcome all over the place and can feel relaxed in all but the most exclusive restaurants. People are used to children eating out and kids stay up late. There are breathtaking sights such as the imagination-firing ancient stadium, the Colosseum, or frozen-in-time Pompeii, under the shadow of Vesuvius. Other delights include pizza, the world’s best ice cream, beaches, boat trips, lakes, caves, mountains, and beautiful villas set in pea-green countryside where children can run, shout and play to their hearts’ content.
