Pune, now called the Oxford of the East was once a haven for the Britishers. The reason being its conducive and pleasant climate. Pune is considered a mini hillstation and has a tolerable climate throughout the year as compared to its neighbour, Mumbai!

The summers can get a little harsh and in daytime temperatures can soar upto 40C at times, with evenings bringing in relief! Main Street, (i.e M.G.Road) is packed with hoards of people having ice creams and milkshakes to shake off the heat!The festivals of 'Holi' and 'Rangpanchmi' is not something one must miss, with umpteen 'Holi' bashes with the crowd going berserk, splashing coloured water on each other to the beats of music! The innumerable swimming pools all over the city can bring in relief from the heat too!

During the day, children can make good use of their free time by attending the number of hobby classes the city has to offer, ranging from cooking, flower arrangement to candle making!

However, the outskirts of Pune are a treat to the eyes during these times with its lush green fields and cool winds blowing!

The months of November and December are welcomed with biting cold and so the enthusiastic ones who want to celebrate the 'New Year', not to forget Christmas in Pune, must make sure that they have a good supply of warm party wears. Or risk wearing stringy outfits if blessed with immunity towards cold! What's more, these parties are on the outskirts… so enjoy the drive and the pulsating music!
