Who needs a reason to visit Goa? Now we know that the so called peak season is over in Goa, however, we don’t think it’s ever too soon or too late to visit the most popular party destination in India. In case you’re looking for something interesting to do apart from the usual, you can witness the Lairai Jatra, a festival celebrated in honor of a local goddess.

5. Udaipur, Rajasthan

Udaipur is one of the most regal cities in India. Home to the Mewar royal family of Rajasthan, there are some of the most magnificent palaces in the lake city of Udaipur. April is probably the last month your could visit the city before the summers get extremely severe.

Thrissur is by one of the most colorful destinations when it comes to temple festivals and celebrations that go on for days at end! In April the city will be hosting the Thrissur Pooram, a festival celebrated my hundreds of thousands of people together.

7. Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir

Generally, the ideal time to visit Srinagar is May/June onward. However, April is, in our humble opinion, the best time to visit the hill station which is home to the gorgeous Dal Lake. In the month of April, the Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden hosts the annual (and magnificent) Tulip Festival.

Ayodhya is home to Rama, the protagonist of the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. Being the birthplace of Rama, Ram Navmi is celebrated with great pomp here and the celebrations are definitely not worth missing.
