Winters are here and so are the winter holidays! TV actors share their favourite holiday destinations with us and where they are heading out this year.
Rishina Kandhari : Srilanka is my favourite because the beaches are absolutely neat and clean. Swinging on the ropes on the beach is so much fun. You can also go on an elephant ride.
Shashank Vyas: Investing in travel is the same as investing in yourself. I believe while travelling one should collect moments, not things. Travelling unwinds me completely. I love to meet real people in life. Kashmir was beautiful, I have no words to explain the beauty of the valley. I just feel that the valley has not been explored by so many people as yet. I think more people should visit Kashmir and explore this heaven on earth.
Aniruddh Dave : I love Singapore. It has everything one needs for pleasure and happiness. I have almost tried all the local dishes there as I am a foodie. Food and culture both are important for me when I go for a holiday.
Pooja Madan : I like to visit my extended family and cousins up north. We generally have weddings in the family during winters and it’s great to visit Chandigarh, Delhi, Kanpur because of the good food, warm clothes, bonfires and lot of laughter and happiness around.
Rohitash Gour : I have born and brought up in Shimla so we are used to having winter for almost 12 months. When we grew up, we shifted to Chandigarh. But my childhood has been totally spent in Shimla. In those days, Shimla used to be very beautiful. But it has changed now. Now my favourite holiday destination is Kasauli, it is in Himalchal Pradesh. As it comes under military area, there is not much of population there, so it reminds me of how Shimla was when I was growing up. That place still has that purity in it and that’s the reason why it is my favourite destination and I would love to go there.
Saurabh Pandey : I usually like winters because of Christmas and I like it because Santa comes home! Actually on 26th of December is my wife’s birthday and 25th is Christmas, so we get to celebrate best of both at any destination wherever we plan to go. This year we will be in London for Christmas and for my wife’s birthday.
Kishori Shahane Vij : My favourite winter holiday destination is Switzerland. It’s fun there especially in Interlaken and Jungfrau, these were some of the best locations we visited. The highest peak of Europe is Jungfrau and you have to catch multiple trains to reach there. But it is like a place out of a fairy tale, it’s fun. My family also enjoys a lot whenever we have gone there. You even get wonderful things there like skateboards, chocolates.
Ankit Siwach : Mussoorie is my favourite destination during winters. Whenever it’s possible, I try to visit the queen of hills and spend some amazing time with the mountains, the forests and the snow. Mussoorie is not very far from Meerut, so it has always been my second home when it comes to spending vacations. The feel of Mussoorie is exactly how I love it. The mall road, laal tibba, dhanaulti, the food, everything is just perfect.
