HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq shares, “Colva is a famous tourist destination, visited for its beaches, budget hotels, guest houses, beach shacks, food stalls, restaurants, pubs and bars.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Bharat Mundra adds, “Places to visit and look forward to can be old Goa which comprises of beautiful churches and temples to relax the mood and have some peace. We did parasailing and it was epic fun. As we were a group of 6 friends, we took one boat and killed it real good.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Vivek Sharma adds, “Patnem beach offers amazing sunset view. I think South Goa beaches are far more clean, peaceful as compared to beaches of North Goa.”

2. Digha

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shasi Kant ram adds, “After completing the first semester, we all friends planned to travel for fun to Digha. Yeah, it's a really wonderful place to chill.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nittin Mittal adds, “A lot of good and cheap hotels are available near the beach, charged me Rs. 500 for a day. You should have awesome seafood in Digha Beach at night and enjoy the cool breeze. Don't miss the early sunrise if you are staying there. It was truly mesmerising to see the yellow light of the sun on the blue water.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Tania Mukherjee adds, “There are lots of activities on the beach here. Horse ride, shooting games, tasting foods, banana ride over water thrive in the beach during daytime.

3. Pondicherry

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nitin Kandhari shares, “Street vendors centred around the Mahatma Gandhi statue sell toys for kids, food, beverages, clothes etc.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Debarghya Guha Munshi adds, “This was the abode of Rishi Aurobindo, which is now an ashram of his name. You go in, you will be asked to put your phones in silent mode and trust me you should. When inside, you will feel so much at peace that if someone's phone even beeps you will feel distracted.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sreesha Divakaran shares, “First of all, you have to plan a trip to Auroville for at least 2 days if you want to see the inside of the dome. I went during the off-season, so I got the pass for the next day itself.”

4. Alappuzha (Alleppey)

HolidayIQ Reviewer Amitra Kar says, “It's a clean white sandy long beach which is best-viewed during sunset when the pier provides a unique and magnificent photo opportunity. There are plenty of road side shops who sell pre-cooked fish fries, prawns, chickens and sea shells and we tasted all and they were just yummy. The shopkeeper instantly warms it up and serves with onion slices and chutney.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Venkatapathi Tudur adds, “We did not find the need for any other activities as the tranquil waters, beautiful houseboats, local people on the islands, birds, sunset and sunrise, chatty captain and the silent cook all kept us mesmerized.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Pawan Srinivas shares, “The best choice for someone who is looking to go out of the city and have a peaceful time outside. It is going to cost around INR 600 per hour.

HolidayIQ Reviewer JOJI JOSEPH adds, “Cherai beach is the most sought after place for tourists coming to Kerala and a relaxing point for local people during weekends. Having an extended coastline it's different from many other beaches and it is well maintained, clean and hence apt for sunbathing apart from swimming.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Indu Eby adds, “Kerala's Commercial Street is for shopaholics. Especially if you love sarees.Having shopped everywhere across the state, I can vouch for one thing. Kochi is the trendsetter in Kerala. You can spend a nice day in Kochi, with the friendly shopkeepers. Be it a saree shop or a jeweller, they ensure your comfort.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Chintamani Bharati says, “The beach is good for having a long walk or sitting on the wall and watching the sunset.
