Today is Women’s Day 2018. It is a celebration of women and everything that they stand for. It is also a great day to remind yourself of the importance of travelling with your female buddies. If you are new to travel, you may not always be comfortable travelling alone or with your male friends. And if you are a seasoned travel, you still know how amazing girl trips can be! India is full of incredible places that are absolutely safe to visit for women – both solo and in groups. If you are looking for a trip with your girl friends, here are some of the best places for you.
One of the most serene and beautiful places in India, Dharamsala is worth visiting at least once in a lifetime. It is located right in the Kangra valley and therefore provides amazing views of lush green, cloud-kissed hills and snow-clad peaks. Its trendy cafes are great spots to meet new people and the monastery here is where you can forget all your worries and listen to His Holyness the Dalai Lama.
Well, this one is a no-brainer. Goa is India’s most wonderful beach destination and most preferred party spot. It is full of travellers of all gender identities from all over the world. What better place to have a memorable trip with your gal pals than this marvellous destination full of sun, sand, waves, delicious food and the most vibrant ambiance you will find in India?!
If Goa is too crowded for you, you may like the less crowded, sometimes sleepy Gokarna. A delight for backpackers, Gokarna is home to the hep Om beach and the quieter Kudle beach – both beautiful and welcoming in their own right.
This former French colony on India’s east coast is a pleasant surprise in an otherwise-not-so-touristy coastal stretch. Pondicherry is known for its beautiful architecture, tree-lined avenues and water sporting activities. The best way for you and your friends to explore Pondicherry is by renting a bicycle and riding away to glory.
And then there is the busy city of Mumbai often referred to as the city of dreams. Mumbai holds the reputation of being one of the safest cities in India. Its vibrant nightlife is perhaps the best in the country and the colonial architecture in its southern region takes you back in time. Not to forget, it is the land of Bollywood, India’s biggest film industry, so you are likely to spot celebrities if you hang out at the high-end places.
So, take your pick and head to one of these amazing places with your girl gang.
