Restaurants like Traditional khana, Natraj dining hall, Ambrai, The Tribute etc. are some cool places to visit. If you already have things decided, it will be helpful and much more conventional.
2. Know your routes- It is fine and actually enjoyable to find new routes and explore new places when one is alone or with friends. But when with family, one should keep in mind to opt for the most familiar route for everybody’s safety. Especially with children around, you never know when what emergency occurs hence you must be in a known locality to be able to find some help and probably be lucky enough for proper medical attention.
3. Pack all the essentials- Essentials involve from medical kits to basic medicines for fever, stomach infection etc., from an extra pair of clothing to an extra pair of everyday products like a brush, toothpaste etc. Be ready for any kind of emergency and anticipate what might go wrong. Prepare a checklist as a reminder so that you don’t forget anything last minute.
4. Don’t be disappointed- Remember it is not a movie, no vacation can ever be perfect. Hence don’t crib and be flexible if things don’t go exactly how you planned or if they get postponed. Learn to enjoy the moment except rushing into everything and at the end, don’t forget that the purpose of the entire trip was not to visit every single place in the city but to spend some quality time with your loved ones.
