Budget-Friendly Vacation Ideas for Families

When the vacations finally start, families plan ahead to make sure they go on at least one trip before the same old routine of classes, office, and exams starts again. While the vacationing costs are usually split between friends when you go on a friend’s trip, the same is not true for families. Thus, it becomes important for families to seek out places where they can have a fun and comfortable vacation with their loved ones on a budget.

Here are the top destinations you can go to for a budget-friendly vacation with your family:

Darjeeling, West Bengal

Darjeeling is a cosy hill station perfect for a budget family vacation. Offering a snow-crested stunning view of the Himalayan range, your day starts with a magnificent sunrise at Tiger Hill, followed by breakfast at the iconic Glenary’s. After that, you take a magical toy train ride up to the lush green tea gardens waiting to be explored. However, don’t forget to visit the Himalayan Zoological Park and have the mouth-watering thukpa and momo.
