Hi Friends,

We want to make plan for a 9-10 days trip with our 8 months old baby @December end 2017 to some places within India. Please suggest some best places where I can go for vacation considering we will be travelling with 8 months old baby.

Please do suggest some suitable places. Also what is your opinion/suggestion about traveling with the baby. I have been in the following places and I am thinking of Kerala/Goa/South India.

Dooars
Darjeeling
Puri
Kashmir
Sikkim


Thanks in advance

Munnar Ooty is beautiful, but may be a bit cold for your baby.

Goa stands out in the list, but then it does stand out in everyone's list and would be crowded. You can definitely get places away from the crowd and still enjoy. Would be costlier than usual too.

South India could be a good option, but then again what do you prefer? Heritage, temples, beaches, nature - choices may vary.
Sar Pass Trek , Rohtang, Munnar, Badrinath Kedarnath, Vaishnodevi, Goa, VOF, Kedarkantha, Kuari Pass, Brahmatal Trek

Is there any challenges you faced during the travel time? What about the food for baby? Did she completely dependent on liquid food/semi solid food?
What about the drinking water for the baby? I am bit confused on this part.

Beaches/Nature. But it should be a relaxing one.

How about Vizag with odisha? (the closest thing that can be combined with Vizag)

Else - Chennai, Pondichery, Rameshwaram, Madurai and Kanyakumari.

I carried some cooking utensils with me like a small (500 ml) pressure cooker, electric kettle, hand blender with me. Wherever I stayed, I have asked hotels to use their kitchen. Every time they happily agreed. (without any cost). We mainly prepared khitchdi. We have carried food in a container (specially made to keep food fresh for a long time) when we went out for sightseeing.

I have carried lot of extra feeding bottle so I didn't faced any problem regarding disinfecting bottle every time. You will also get container in market in which you can keep milk fresh for a long time.

Just use Bisleri or any other good brand for drinking water your baby will be good.

Vizag is a good option. I am not sure about any other places in odisha other than Puri. Also as you mentioned, what are the options for crowd less places?

Rambha & Barkul along with Gopalpur will be suitable for you.
