2. Goa

Shacks along most of the major beaches offer the most chill spots to live. King's beer at 30 bucks a pop is a no-brainer! HolidayIQ Traveller Shivam Gupta says, “If you are here on Wednesday, you should check out the flea market. It has got loads of kitschy stuff at dirt cheap prices. Try out food at small eateries around Anjuna Beach, most of them serves delightful seafood.” Hire mopeds to explore the city." HolidayIQ Traveller Suman Roy adds, “Anjuna Beach Resort is one place where you can plan your stay if you are on a tight budget. This hotel is a hit among travellers and provides pocket-friendly solutions for all travelling needs.”

10. Udaipur

HolidayIQ Traveller Nitin Gupta says, “Udaipur is a great exotic place with a very rich historical background. An evening boat ride in Lake Pichola is a memorable experience. Night view from the Karni Mata Temple is also mesmerising.”The hues of the city is best enjoyed by staying by Lake Pichola, which runs along the City Palace. Instead of going for this option, explore the alleys to find quaint little B&Bs that sit right on the lakeside says HolidayIQ Traveller Akash Roonwal. He shares his experience at Bhanwar Vilas, “A very good and well-maintained budget hotel. The location was great as its close to Lake Pichola and the City Palace.”
