In this fast paced life, parents usually come face to face with the rebel side of their teenagers. Travelling with your teenagers not just gives you an opportunity to enjoy and spend some more time with them but also see their their latent innocent, creative and the curious side too.
Here are 12 destinations, we think teenagers would love to visit.

This small village is one of the best examples of eco-friendly lifestyle.
