Speaking of New Year and Christmas celebrations, Goa is the first place that comes to our mind. The atmosphere here livens up during the season. With midnight parties, music, and dance, Goa is where you let your hair down. Beachside parties and cruise parties sell like hot cakes during this season. Evening cruises with traditional Goan dances are intoxicating. A walk along the several Portuguese styled mansions is the best thing to do in Goa.

The pink city is another awesome choice for spending a week in the most enjoyable manner. Festive lightings make the colorful city even brighter. Ancient palaces and magnificent architecture looks stunning against the backdrop of clear December sky. As the weather is cool and cozy, spending a night in a desert camp will be a good option. Live folk music and dance, combined with delicious Rajasthani food will be a different experience. Go for a camel ride through the desert, and you will love it.
