The rams love adventure and have a special preference for exotic locations. If you haven't been to Goa, then you must visit it this New Year. Since you also love hiking and trekking how about rafting in Rishikesh or a trek to the Himalayas?


Taureans are all for comfortable and close to home trips. So, this New Year, find time to explore Uttaranchal. Do not forget to visit the Nanda Valley National Park where you will find the most beautiful and exotic flowers in the world.


Dubai is a melting pot of cultures and perfect for the twins who love diversity. You also love to travel by air and travelling to Dubai would fulfil both your wishes. There is just so much that the city has to offer, that you would want to come back again and again. Whether it is Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world or the man-made Palm Islands or the desert safaris and camel racing, the city is magnificence personified.


A romantic gateaway with snowfall and beautiful scenery would be the ideal travel destination. Kashmir or the beautiful hill station of Kullu or Manali would be perfect. Vacationing by the sea is also a favourite of the crabs and an off-beat travel destination to ring in the New Year would be Seychelles.


The bold and daring Leos love a trip that allows them to bring out their adventurous side. Beaches happen to be a favourite of many Leos and Goa being the beach capital of India would be perfect for you. If you have already been to Goa then Lakshadweep is another wonderful location that will find favour with you.


God's own country would be right up the alley for the Virgos. They love clean and green surroundings and Kerala is just that. Beautiful beaches and sumptuous south Indian feasts are another highpoint of opting for the pretty state this New Year.


Librans make the best travel companions. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Librans appreciate beautiful surroundings and have a special liking for places of historical significance.  Hampi, in Karnataka, might not be a tourist hub but is perfect for the Librans. Hampi was built around 1500 AD and allow visitors to take a sneak peak into the history of our country. Delhi, the erstwhile capital of the Mughal Empire also houses some magnificent monuments which will enthral you with their beautiful Mughal architecture and not to mention the famous Delhi winters.


Pattaya would be an apt travel destination for the Scorpions not only because of its sexual reputation but also for the cultural extravaganza that it offers. As many would know, Pattaya in Thailand is popular for its sex industry, nightlife and cabaret shows. But it is not just a mecca for sex starved souls; Pattaya boasts of some wonderful travel options like the Pattaya floating Market, Buddha Hall, Elephant Trekking and of course Cabaret Shows that make it a wonderful travel option for the New Year. Closer home, if you haven't visited the erotic temples of Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh, it would be perfect to visit them now.


You are the traveller of the zodiac and love to explore. Nepal would be the ideal travel destinations for you. If you want to visit someplace more spectacular go for Bhutan, it is still largely unexplored and offer many beautiful options for travel and exploration.


San Francisco is a popular tourist hotspot owing to its beautiful scenery and breath taking Victorian architecture. The trams remind of the days of the past. And since the Capricorns have a special liking for old things, this would be the perfect travel destination for them. If you have a tight budget and are looking for pocket friendly travel, we suggest the Kangra Valley in Himachal Pradesh. And don't forget to visit Andretta, a picturesque village near Palampur.


Something different is what most Aquarians look for when planning their holiday destinations. Rann of Kutch is a pretty place in Gujarat with numerous options for travelling. The vast landscape of desert presents a different side of nature, one that we do not naturally associate with, yet equally beautiful, if not more. Another offbeat travel option to spook you out is Bhangarh in Rajasthan, a haunted city near Alwar.


They prefer places that are sparsely populated and allow them to bask in the beauty of nature. At an altitude of 12000 feet, Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh is an off-beat travel destination that offers more than just glimpses of the beauty of nature. The beauty of the place is captivating and makes you forget about everything else. Dotted with beautiful monasteries and snow-capped peaks, it is the perfect holiday destination for the Pisceans.
