HolidayIQ reviewer Ananya says, "Goa, party capital of India, is all about sights of sand, sunshine, beaches and lush green landscape. Mainly divided into north Goa and south Goa, since we wanted a relaxing time off, we spent most of our days in north Goa. The pristine blue sea and golden sand with a chilled beer in hand defined it best."

HolidayIQ reviewer Inme says, "Munnar for me is synonymous with "the colour blue (skies), green (plantation) and white (clouds) - dreamy, right!! Moonu Aar - literally means three rivers as it lies in the confluence of river Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. The balmy air was now a cool breeze and I greedily took in my dose of Vitamin H (Hills). In fact Munnar is blessed with almost every shade of green."
