Bali's Denpasar airport is a short flight from Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai or Bangalore and one of the most enriching places you will go to in your life. Bali's spirituality permeates beyond its many temples, giving you the option to surrender yourself to days of yoga, meditation and reflection in many centers around the island. Pamper yourself with fabulous massages and treatments, and feast on the best of Balinese food (or if you have aversions, there are tons of other cuisines available too). If you are looking for more of a party scene, Bali has a ton of 5-star resorts and beach clubs where you can indulge in a slightly more decadent holiday, virgin mojito in your hand!
This place is a paradise for those who draw energy from water. Heralded as one of the most spectacular places on the planet, this collection of islands in the Indian Ocean offers the chance to take the weight off your swollen feet in some of the world's most glorious waters. The mandate here is to do nothing but float, eat and relax. It'll probably be one of the most expensive vacations of your life but you may as well spend now before you have to start saving for things like college education!
Mauritius is a great choice for someone who wants a bit of island culture, with some variety tossed in. A veritable melting pot of cultures, the island is a racial potpourri of Creole, French, Indian, Chinese, influences you will see all over the food, language and norms. In Mauritius, you can visit rich nature parks and gardens or simply lounge on one of its many beautiful beaches.
Istanbul may just be one of the most interesting places on the planet, not only because it's the only city that straddles two continents, but also because of its spectacular architecture, rich history, and stunning views of the Bosphorus. And you are not limited only to tourism in Istanbul – the city offers much by way of shopping (beyond the Grand Bazar), eating, and of course, soaking in Turkish baths at a traditional hammam.
If you are looking for a luxury holiday with a cultural overlay, consider Abu Dhabi. It's only a short 4-hour direct flight from India and a veritable Arabian paradise with gorgeous resorts, intriguing souks and stunning mosques. A tamer option than Dubai, which is a short drive away if you are in the mood for a bit more activity.
