I know people consider it to be overdone, overrated and what not – and maybe it is – but to me, well, it’s just different. I have mentioned this time and again, but Goa is a place that feels like it’s calling me – even though I have been there – twice.
Goa is a masterpiece of so many things brought together – beaches, Portuguese architectures, so many colors, wild hikes, unique weather and so much story!
There is just so much to do in Goa – even when you cut out the incredible beaches over there! Giant waterfalls, hidden treks, water sports, peace vibes, etc.

Munnar stands to be one of the most fascinating aspect of Kerala as it is the most beloved place for hill lovers, bird watchers, nature enthusiasts and just people who want to take that mountain vibe while deciding not to go further away from their South Indian homelands.
From visiting a factory that shows you how tea is made, to exploring the infamous spice garden, going on hikes, camping along the mysterious virgin forests, and vibing with the splashy waterfalls – Munnar has everything you need for a fun trip with your siblings for a Raksha Bandhan celebration!
Munnar can be explored within 3 full days but I would recommend that if you happen to live a weekend trip away from the place – you shall spend all these 4 to 5 days exploring the place.
Pachmarhi is a fantastic place to visit with siblings as it is in situated in the state that has one of the most amazing natural places to explore.
Situated in the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh, Pachmarhi is not a place very far away from most states in the country and can be visited easily for the weekend trip.

A trip for 4 days is enough to breathe in the fresh air, hike through the forests and enjoy with siblings in this incredible place.
As Goa is considered to be a land of Portuguese art, culture and architecture – similarly Puducherry is a land full of French art, culture and architecture.
It is referred as the French Capital of India and is known for its still unspoiled beaches, French quarters, ancient temples and churches and heritage buildings.
Puducherry has almost all the things that Goa has – except as Goa is considered to be a party destination – full of people wanting to have fun, dance, drink and let it all out! On the other hand – Puducherry is known for its calmness – the beaches give out a sense of calming and soothing vibes.
There are places to dance your hearts out as well – but the people who visit this place, visit it while looking for peace.
Usually 4 days are enough to explore Puducherry – and that is all we need for a fantastic weekend getaway with siblings
Udaipur or the White City of India is a remarkable place to travel to feel the royalty of life.
The enormous white structure of the Royal Fort, the rich history and culture of the city and the beautiful boat rides on the lakes makes for a great trip whether you are alone, with family or friends.
I would surely recommend this city as your perfect getaway for this Raksha Bandhan with brother and sisters.
Udaipur is a city full of giant palaces, ancient forts, man-made lakes and romantic backdrops with mountains, greenery and so many unique cafes! I mean what is not to love about this place.
A minimum of 2 nights and 3 days are recommended to fully explore the city in all its glory.
