Holidays are something that nobody likes spending alone. People either opt to go with families, friends or their lovers. But different places are suitable for distinct crowds. A family vacation is a good way of bonding, and we advise you to take one at least once a year but make sure not to holiday at the places mentioned below as they weigh more towards the friends and partner side. Don’t worry there are plenty of beautiful places in India worth taking your family like Bangalore and Hyderabad, where you can easily find hourly hotels in Bangalore or dayuse hotels in Hyderabad. Being stuck in the right place with the wrong crowd is a big mood spoiler. To help you from avoiding this mistake, here is a list of 8 places to never visit with your family-

1. Kasol, Himachal Pradesh

Located in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh, Kasol is a fairly popular place among youngsters owing to its majestic hills, mountains and hippie culture. The tiny hamlet is swarming with native and foreign backpackers searching for a purpose in life or promoting their beliefs. Kasol is a big no to visit with your family because it is a huge boiling pot of marijuana. It is crowded with people who enjoy the high life and high-quality weed. The bohemian culture is very prominent here and will make your family feel awkward and uncomfortable. The ‘Amsterdam of India’ is also known for its Israeli cafes and restaurants serving sumptuous food. An ideal place for a solo venture or an exciting getaway with friends. If you still wish to visit a hill station with your partner, Mahabaleshwar near Pune is the perfect option, and you can easily find many couple friendly hotels in Pune.

2. Ozran Beach, Goa

Goa is not the best place to visit with your family but the perfect location to go with your love interest. If you land up in Goa with your family, you will get bored to death. Romance is literally in the air. You will find newlyweds shopping on the streets, exploring the city on a romantic bike ride, thrill-seeking couples trying out the thrilling water sports and strolling on the beaches hand in hand, admiring each other oops! We meant the sunset. So, unless you plan to feel super single even though you are dating or if you have your partner along, but your parents are not like the modern family, be ready to kiss goodbye to a romantic trip.

Let’s say hypothetically you still end up in Goa with your birth givers and avoid visiting the Ozran beach. Discover foreigners sunbathing in bikinis and skinny dipping, which could be super awkward for families. You can also take a quick trip to Goa when in Pune and stay at hourly hotels in Pune, which are cheap and provide flexible check out. While exploring the city with your partner, live in couple friendly hotels in Pune. Many couple friendly hotels in Pune are close to the station, where you can easily catch a train to Goa.


3. Malana, Himachal Pradesh

Malana is a village located in the Kullu region of Himachal, away from the daily chaos of the city. It is gifted with lush greenery and stunning vistas that will take your breath away. Refrain from entering this remote area with your family if you don’t want to see people smoking Hash. Additionally, the place also has limited accommodation options.

4. Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu

A hill station in the southern state of Tamil Nadu and a paradise for honeymooners. It is full of mesmerizing waterfalls, mist-coated peaks and a pleasant climate. Aside from this, a little-known fact about Kodaikanal is its stockpile of magical mushrooms. The place is a mix of Gokarna and Kasol, making it pretty evident that the mountainous region is not ideal for families. You can always explore the city with friends while visiting and residing in dayuse hotels in Chennai.

5. Kamathipura, Mumbai

If you have watched the movie Gangubai Kathiawadi, you know the reason behind our pessimism. Don’t get us wrong, Mumbai is a city that has something for everyone, from adults and children to families and lovers. But Kamathipura, commonly called KP is not a family-friendly spot to tour. However, if you wish to explore the site, a solo visit doesn’t sound so bad, and there are plenty dayuse hotels in Mumbai to help you in your endeavours. The people here have welcoming and warm hearts regardless of their profession.

6. Pondicherry

A love child of the French colonials and traditional Indian culture, Pondy is the capital and most populated city of the union territory of Puducherry. It has some beautiful beaches offering fun and thrilling water sports. Several foreign and Indian youth flock to the place for its refreshing and energetic vibe. It is quite obvious that since the crowd is young, the elders could feel a little out of place. The city is a few hours away from hourly hotels in Chennai and is easy to navigate by road.

7. Gokarna, Karnataka

To most people, Gokarna is known for the famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Although it sounds like an amazing place to tour with your family, paradise beach is better kept unexplored. The shores are swarming with naked foreigners, and the only way to reach the beach is via a trek. There are chances of elder people getting fatigued during this, and they might not even enjoy the view at the end of the journey.

8. Varkala, Kerala

Another place is known for housing expats and hipsters. By now, we all know that these places are a bad option to visit with family. The beach is ideal for getting trippy. Later, head to the shacks and cafes to satiate yourself. Lo and behold! Many people might be unaware of this, but the world-renowned Idukki gold, a strain of high-quality cannabis, comes from the peaceful town of Kerala. The extreme hippie atmosphere of Varkala may make your family feel out of place and uncomfortable.

All these places are heavenly and offer something unique but best to visit with friends or consort.
