We caught Kareena Kapoor Khan just before she jetted off to Dubai on a babymoon with her husband, Saif Ali Khan. As she slipped into vacation mode – the couple have reportedly planned a beach-and-spa trip to prep themselves for the arrival of their first baby together – we ask her about her favourite vacation spots in India, and around the world. “As much as I’d love to, I haven’t travelled that much within India. Of course, I’ve visited all the bigger, more mainstream cities for work. Recently, I travelled to five cities for various scenes and song sequences while shooting for Ki and Ka. It was fun!” said the feisty actor. “But within the limited range of my domestic travels, my favourite places in the country are definitely Kerala and Rajasthan. Internationally, it’s London and Gstaad [in Switzerland],” she adds.  

Kerala Is Definitely One Of My Favourite Places In The Country

It’s such a magical place – so clean and green. It’s just amazing. I love going there for the serenity and that feeling of escape you get when you get away from the bustle of city life. There's something very cathartic about visiting the place.  

I Love The Vibe Of Rajasthan

I’m a huge fan of the cold, and winters in Rajasthan are just lovely. It’s beautiful and regal throughout the year, but the winters there are just magical. It's also very rich in history and I love the vibe of the place.  

London Is A Go-To Holiday Destination For Me

It’s a wonderful break for us (Saif and I) as we can be with our friends, without getting disturbed by work pressure. I have such a sense of nostalgia attached to the city- I've spent some of my best childhood holidays there and have priceless memories of time spent there with my family. All these years later, I still go there at least once a year because it feels like a second home.  

I Love The Hills And The Cobblestone Streets Of Switzerland

Again, primarily because I love cold places, this is one of my favourite holiday destinations. Every part of Switzerland is breath-taking and it’s a great escape from the hectic life I have in Mumbai. If you hold a gun to my head and ask me which my favourite holiday location in the world is, then it’s easily the Swiss town of Gstaad. I love staying at a private chalet there - that’s my idea of romance.
