15 Best Things To Do in Goa

It’s been nearly a few months since my Sri Lanka Backpacking trip and I started feeling my wanderlust again. So this time I chose to backpack Goa and it turned out the craziest trip of the year. Back in 2012, I have been to Goa with my friends and guys trust me, it was just like a normal leisure Goa trip, but in backpacking I experienced Goa never like before, in crazier and wicked ways. Though Goa is the smallest state of India, but it has become the most popular destination among the tourists and bachelors. Interesting fact is that every bachelor in India at least once wants to go Goa and just to experience the nightlife. Goa defines the ultimate freedom and leisure. I love that feeling to sit next to the beach with a glass of red wine and do nothing but feel the passing time, see the people and wait for the sun to go down. So here we go, if you are looking for some adventure, then try Goa in backpacking …

Puducherry (Pondicherry) You Must Visit At Least Once

Puducherry (Pondicherry) or Pondy is one of the seven union territories of India. The place was in our rough plan when I was in Chennai along with my few friends for one wedding function.  After the wedding function, we had one whole day extra for our leisure time. We decide to go for a day trip to Pondicherry.  We booked a personal car for a day and the next morning we started our journey towards Pondicherry. Pondicherry is around 150 kilometers from Chennai via East Coast Road (ECR).  I was super excited since ECR journey is considered as the one of the best road journeys of India. We were mostly driving through the coastal areas and indeed, it was an amazing road journey though the climate was bit humid and hot. Pondicherry Beach was the first stop where we stopped.  It offers beautiful seafront.  There is a huge statue of Gandhi Ji at one on the entrances along with long promenade for walking. Frankly, summer is not so good to visit Pondicherry. Initially, we got …

Kolkata To Sundarbans – A Journey Through Basanti Road

Back in March 2015, I have got a change to explore The Sundarbans, one of the most amazing places of India, so called “Amazon of East”. I traveled to Sundarbans from Kolkata through Basanti road and this rustic road journey turned out the most memorable journey I ever had. We traveled through many villages one by one on Kaccha/Dirt road. I still remembered, at the time, when we were started towards Sundarbans, one of the members from coordinating team us already told us “Abhi bahot majja aane wala hai aap logo ko” (Now, you guys are going to have a fun). Indeed, this journey was an unique experience (As good as equal to Bumper ride).  Most of the times, our coordinators were telling us real incidents, the villagers stories and how they spotted the Royal Bengal tigers and other wildlife in forest. For me , it was the most rustic route I have ever been to and the interesting part was I witnessed urban and rural life in a single day. As we were moving away from the …

Mysore Palace, Karnataka

Mysore is considered as one of the historical places of India. In earlier days, Mysore was a kingdom of the southern India which was ruled by the Wodeyer family. It also described as “City of Palaces” because it has a number of the historical palaces. Unfortunately when I reached Mysore late in the evening, the Mysore Palace was already closed.  I did not get a chance to see the palace completely, but somehow I managed to get few photos from outside. Mysore Palace is the one of the main attractions of Mysore city. It is also called as “Palace of Mysore” or “Amba Vilas”. The Mysore Palace is the home of the Wodyers who ruled Mysore for more than 500 years.   The Palace is indeed worth a visit, for its spacious halls, 3D wall paintings and architectural beauty. The palace should not to be missed seeing when it is illuminated on Sundays and other festival occasions specially during the Dasara festival. Palace Timing – The palace is open throughout the week from 10 am to 5.30 pm. Just to mention, Photography inside the main palace …
