One can often be stuck at a fork when it comes to picking the best places to visit. While some may make a great travelling choice, the lack of appealing food can put a damper on the vacation. TIME magazine recently, rolled out a list of top 100 best places to visit in the world that cover it all – places to stay, eat and drink.

Here are some of the highlights of the places that made it to the top. The list also featured some pretty interesting Indian attractions.

Sunder Nursery
New Delhi, India

Unveiled in February this year, the city’s first arboretum offers a respite from the pollution and the crowds. It is a 90-acre horticultural haven with restored Mughal-era monuments. In what sounds like a much-needed consolation to Delhi, it will be soon linked to a neighbouring zoo and fort to create a 900-acre sanctum of greenery.

Indian Accent
New Delhi, India

Not just green places, the capital city also offers a great choice for some scrumptious food. Indian Accent is one such restaurant that has also made a place in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for six years running, thanks to chef Manish Mehrotra’s innovative take on Indian cuisine. From pulled-pork phulka tacos to blue cheese naan and galautis stuffed with foie grass, the restaurant has lots for foodies.

Alila Fort Bishangarh
Rajasthan, India

Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve
Idaho

If you are dying to go to space, heading to Idaho may be a much safer, somewhat heady and thrilling experience. Last year, a 1,400-sq.-mi. region in the central part of the state became the first site in the U.S to be named a Dark Sky Reserve by the International Dark-Sky Association, meaning that its traits (clear air, 10,000-ft. elevation) are ideal for star­gazing.
