February

February, the month of love and lovers attract a lot of beautiful destinations in India. The transition from winter to spring also makes it a special time to cherish. Some of my favourite destinations of this time- Kerala, Goa, Mumbai and Jaipur (Rajasthan). Kerala backwaters, views and the Valentines time creates the magic. Jaisalmer is also a perfect place in Feb because the deserts can never be explored in any other season. So a desert safari is the best choice.
