5. Arunachal Pradesh
The only one on our list that is a State and not a city. Its because the entire state is road-trip-worthy and its a new view after every corner you take. Beautiful serene valleys and the unique culture and hospitality of this region is worth visiting for. P.S. Don’t forget to try out the unique “Rice Beer” brewed locally.
6. Rann of Kutch
If you ever wish to get a glimpse of how small you are compared to the vastness of this country, you have to visit this place. Endless plains of nothingness and just you and your bike riding around for hours will give you all the calmness you need. Don’t forget to stop and pitch your tent in the middle of nowhere and enjoy a great sunset / sunrise.
Not many would have heard about this destination but if you are fond of riding on the beach, this is the place to do it. The beaches stretch several kms in length and you can actually walk all the way into the waters for quite some distance. A Dhanushkodi sunrise is not to be missed here.
This quaint little French town has a lot to offer for the pop culture seeker but it is the East Coast Road from Chennai which takes the sweet spot. Considered as the go to destination for Chennai-ites, the ECR is surely worth the ride if you are looking for some solace from the city life.
