    I was walking around in Panaji and was thinking it would be nice to find a café where I could sit down, eat a cake and rest for a while. I didn’t think I would see one, but luckily I stumbled over Café Aunty Maria, which is part of Hotel Fidalgo. They have a great selection of home made bread, cakes and cookies.

  • Sher-E-Punjab

    Sher-E-Punjab is a popular restaurant with good food and service in central Panaji. I had passed earlier, during lunch time, and then saw it was full of costumers.

At a travel agent I found out though that there was a train leaving Goa for Hospet a few days a...

    Thought this was a great shop when entering, as did my wife. A good selection of gift items, including local jewellery, clothes, furniture etc, all with an India theme. One of a chain across India I believe.Sadly the customer service from a very rude lady in the menswear section meant I put back the items I was planning to buy. It seems she was...

    Walk up !

    by ChuckG Written Jun 23, 2003

    I had a map of the city and just walked up in the small streets. I ended up in a tiny street bordered by flowers and had this view when I reached the end of the street.

    Barracuda diving

    by gonzo747 Updated Mar 14, 2007

    Their office is situated at the 5 star "Goa Marriot Resort" in Miramar (just west of Panaji);
    I did a day trip to Grande island with them. The price was 2500 roepies. This was for the boatride, the equipment, two tank dives and some snacks and water along the way.
    Visibility isn't tops over here, but I saw quite some fish.

    Walk along Mandovi River

    by ChuckG Updated Jun 23, 2003

    Favorite thing: It's River, it's European Fell, it's vibe

    Fondest memory: Take a walk along Mandovi river, there are many bridges to walk across, little cafes, nice shops. It's really an area to discover.
