    Have a nice vacation.

    "Have a nice vacation."

    "Have a nice holiday."

    "Have a nice journey."

    "Have a nice weather."

    "Have a nice tea."

    Please check.

    Could you please also tell me in how many ways or context, can this phrase "Have a nice" be used?

    That one doesn't work. The others do.

    Re: Have a nice vacation.

    "Have a nice tea" works only if you're referring to "tea" as the name of a specific meal. In the UK, some people still do (and of course, there's "afternoon tea", the subject of a long recent thread).

    Have a nice breakfast!
    Have a nice lunch!
    Have a nice dinner!

    Those all work. I find "Have a nice tea" unlikely, though not ungrammatical.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That's not really possible. It's natural enough with day, trip, journey, holiday, break, vacation, meal, walk
    and a few other similar words, but we could tell someone to have a nice experience of any sort. Such an experience would normally be expected to be pleasant.
