Go on a trip

There are many things you can do in summers, and the most enjoyable one is going on a trip. Travelling opens up our minds by changing our environment for the summers. You can visit new places and get to know about their history and culture, and you can enjoy new foods and get out of your comfort zone to explore new places.

Here are some of the places you can visit to spend summer vacations in India :

How to spend summer vacations at home

If you do not want to go to a tourist destination for spending your summer vacations, then do not worry. You can also spend your summer vacations at home without travelling. Summer vacations are an opportunity to explore new things which can be done without going on a trip. Here are a few things you can do to spend your summer vacations:-

Exercise Indoors

If you feel that the weather is too hot to go outdoors, you can exercise indoors. Exercising keeps the mind and body fit and running. During regular days, we all have excuses, but we have a lot of free time in summer. You can see videos that teach you how to exercise indoors effectively and exercise every day during the summer vacations so that you get back to work or school with a fresh mind and a healthy body.

Learn a new language

In today’s globalised world, you don’t know when you can get a job offer in a foreign country. This is why we must learn at least one foreign language other than english. You can utilise your summer vacations to learn a new foreign language and try to get fluent in it. You can either join an offline course in your city or take courses online. You can learn new languages from apps on your phone by practising every day. If everything goes well, maybe you can surprise your friends by showing off your newly acquired language in the vacations. You can even visit the country and interact with the natives in their language in the next summer vacation!

Get a new hobby

Nowadays, everyone is too much involved in studies and work. To balance things out, everyone must have a hobby that they enjoy doing. This will act as a refresher from the worries in life. And what is a better time to explore new hobbies than summer vacations? You can look into new hobbies in the summer vacations and get better at them. Your hobbies can be anything like painting, writing, knitting or anything else that you enjoy doing.


Summer vacations are a great time to refresh your mind and experience new things. You should not waste the summer vacations doing nothing. You can travel to new places to spend your summer vacations. There are many recommended summer destinations in India like Ladakh, Manali, Dharamshala and more. If you do not feel like going on a trip, you can even spend your summer vacations at home by doing things like exercising, learning new languages as well as exploring new hobbies.
