Best Destination for relaxation

I visited Panjim during Carnival. The people there are very good. In fact the residents of Goa are very good and helpful. Food is good and cheap. Weather is similar to Mumbai less pollution in Goa. Visitors to Goa are spoiling the city with litters. Sancity of the place is good. Some beaches are spoilt by visitors need to highlight.

Perfect for eating, drinking and Lazing around.

Good place to laze around, walk around in the market, walk around in the beach. Are you interested in a cruise? Do you want to spend the night in a Casino trying your luck? Do you want to taste various kinds of sea food? Then this is the place. Visit the Immaculate Conception Church if you want to see the popular church shown in many hindi movies. Miramar beach is part of Panjim and a favourite location for morning and evening walks both with locals and tourists. Moving around Panjim is very easy. If you are carrying a driving license you could hire a Activa scooter for the full day for just Rs. 300/- (petrol expense is yours) and move around the city without much problem. Similarly cars are available starting from Rs. 1000/-.
