Amidst the furor of horns, concrete and chaos lie some absolutely serene and quiet spots. So take out time from your busy holiday schedules and head to any of these splendid spots for a moment of peace. Rejuvenate and refresh your senses away from the mundaneness of everyday life.

    Nestled on top of Malabar Hills, overlooking the gorgeous Arabian Sea, Hanging Gardens are also known as Ferozeshah Mehta Garden. Offering a spellbinding view of the sunset, the gardens also promise a scintillating view of the famous Marine Drive. Opposite another famous park, the Kamala Nehru Park, the terraced gardens are an abode of rejuvenation. Adorned with various animal shaped topiaries, the gardens are delightful place. Take a refreshing morning stroll or come in for a peaceful evening walk and feel the cool, wet grass beneath your feet. The pleasant breeze blowing from the Arabian Sea and the orange setting sun simply adds charm to the experience.
