So it is said when a son starts wearing his father’s shoes, they become friends. But that should not be your scale to measure the bond. A teenage rebellion or a grown up buddy, every father son deserve to strengthen their bond. And a vacation is just the perfect excuse for it. Even a simple road trip would do. So I present to you, ten father son vacations that you must take.

Summers are the best time to be here. There are monasteries to marvel at, peaks to climb and waterfalls to kill for. It would make a perfect package for all kinds of chilling water sports activities. If nothing else, you could simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
