    Fontainhas, Goa's Latin Quarter, is a quaint, beautiful part of Panjim city. Its lanes are flanked by vibrant, colourful Portuguese style villas with wrought iron balconies. They are remnants of Portuguese colonial times. The names of the lanes have links to important dates, eg. Rua 31 de Janeira (31st January Road) is named after the day when Portugal got independence from Spain on January 31, 1640. It is best to explore Fontainhas on foot, seeing rows of colourful houses and cottages, quaint bakeries, cafes and art galleries dotting the area. Some of the must visit spots in Fontainhas are St Sebastian Chapel, Afonso Guest House, Velha Goa Galleria (for hand painted azulejo tiles and ceramics), Peacock Steps, Joseph's Bar, Maruti Temple atop Altinho Hill. Some of the famous places to eat in Fontainhas are Viva Panjim and Verandah Panjim Inn.

    This fort is located very near Panjim. Burn like all places in Goa you will need your own vehicle to reach this renovated fort located next to a church and the sea . The ticket office closes at 5 PM and the entry fees is Rs50. There are free parking inside the ticket office compound. As it is a fort you have climb a bit. The restoration has been done quite well. It’s a small fort and you get an amazing view of the area around. The room with Mario’s paintings could have a section devoted to the great artist. There are excellent photo ops.

    A gem of a resort situated.on the Divar island(have to take a ferry to reach).The ferry can take cars too.Its about 10 minutes from Panjim city.Tje resort is designed in true goan architecture.Some rooms face the river.The sitouts on the 1st floor rooms are large and comfortable.The ground floor rooms boast of rear garden stouts,but I guess are avoidable in the monsoons.The bar over looks the river and is made in true goan flavour,with gardens and open Cabanas.The real gem is the food and the service .The kitchen does an extremely good job and all dishes from their extensive menu are done very well.The pesto pasta we had ,would put most Italian restaurants to shame.Same for the Indian Food.The Murgi Makhani and Biryanies are outstanding too.
    It's a truly relaxing place where wellness of the soul is of the essence.A must do for a few nights.

    Amazing boat ride at Salim Ali bird sanctuary. Pls hire a boat from the ticket desk for INR 1000 for ten people . The round trip with the boat man who will show you the 5 types of kingfishers , waders, lesser adjutant storks, egrets , western reef herons et al all inclusive in the 1k. And this is for 10 people on the boat.
    Word of caution - Do not hire Uday. He fleeces you. He charged us 3k for 2 people the first time. There is nothing he does over and above what the boatman shows and for a a fraction of the price.

    That's a great place to visit! The scenic beauty is just breathtaking. Right below the fort, there's a spot where the milky waves hit the rocks and the water splashes in a wonderful way. That's such a beauty! And of course there's a beach nearby by name Cabo de Rama beach which adds to the worth of visiting the fort.

    Palolem has maddening crowd this weekend and we did not get place to park at all. So we went to patnem beach. It was a great place. We got parking easily as crowd is less.

    It’s worth visiting. It is very clean. Boating is available. I found many pebbles & shells.

    It is not much crowded & commercialised.
