GOA, INDIA

Goa is one of the amazing holiday destination in India, famous for its Church’s, beaches, sea food, yummy deserts and for its amazing beauty & joyful environment its a beautiful lush green state, I was in Goa for 3-4 days, in three days I covered North Goa including old Goa and Ponda, the best part is that, you can hire a car or bike whatever you like for no. of days your are staying there, you can keep the Vehicle for 24 hours with you, go wherever you want to go, anytime, you just have to submit one of your Identity proof with the car owner as a security, we need to pay only for the car and petrol charges are self paid.

I reached Madgaon (Goa) with my family by Trivendrum Rajdhani and from there we took taxi to the hotel ( Santana Beach Resort), Hotel was amazing near to the beach, with all the facilities, food was also good

I was in Goa in the rainy season, weather was good, lush green surroundings

beach side – Santana Beach Resort, it was nice spending time at this beach, it was a silent place, I would say it is much better than famous beaches like calangute and baga, both  the beaches are now much commercial, not a place to relax

a beautiful Konkani temple in Ponda, this place is famous for its spice gardens

 It was a wonderful drive from candolim to Ponda, we passed through old Goa, it was beautiful, old Goan style house, church’s , wow! it was so nice

Spice garden is a good concept, you can see types of spice plantation there and information given on each type  of spice plantation , it was good

There is  a entry ticket  around  INR 400 to 500 to see spice garden, the cost include the meal charges as well served there
