    Are 2 nights 3 days enough time to spend in goa? Also- how long does it take to get from north goa to south goa?

    I think 2 nights and 3 days in Goa would be very hectic. Goa's not very big but there are several things you could do there - lazing by the beach is the most obvious! If you have the time and want to try out something more cultural you must visit Old Goa. This should take a day and it’s about 20 minutes from Panjim. Old Goa is home to 1) Basilica of Bom Jesus which enshrines the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier, the patron saint of Goa, 2) Ruins of the Church of St. Augustine, and my personal favourite 2) Chapel of the lady of the Mount. It's a little white chapel on top of a hill and offers a stunning views of the port cuty from the top. Great place to watch the sunset too! On another day, I also recommend you visit Fontainhas. An interesting quarter in Panjim, it is one of the old Portuguese districts located west of the Ourem River. The terra cotta tiled houses with neoclassical facades have retained their colored exteriors. The yellow, ochre, blue and green paint is from the period when the Portugese insisted that only churches could be painted white. You'd get some really good photos here! If you want to pick up a souvenir there's a shop in this area that I usually go to called Goa Velha that has art by Mario Miranda, colourful Portuguese-style ceramic ware, and lots of other bits and bobs - it's not too expensive but good quality. Have a read through http://wikitravel.org/en/Goa and http://www.lonelyplanet.com/india/goa - both good sources of things to do in Goa. I'd love for you to see more than just the beaches in Goa - it's a fantastic place, with great food and warm people - but I honestly think you need at least a week to explore that side of it. Hope this helps. Shout if you have any other questions and have fun! about 8 years ago

    Overnight in Abu Dhabi. Any must-sees?

    I'd recommended seeing the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, also known as the Grand Mosque especially around sunset. It's a beautiful mosque and a landmark on the capital. over 7 years ago

    Suggest places to see and things to experience in Nepal in 4 days

    Hi Simon, thanks for that. I think we may postpone our trip coz the more I read about Nepal I realise I'd love to spend more time there and be able to go trekking and see the historial sites. Other than Kathmandum and Bhaktapur, I'd like to visit Pokhara too - so definitely no point in going there for a short trip. over 8 years ago

    Where to stay in Dubai

    I've stayed at the Address Hotel Downtown Dubai and would rate it as one of my favourite hotels in Dubai. http://www.theaddress.com/en/hotel/downtown-burj-dubai-1-2 Has an amazing view of the Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world), the stunning Dubai Fountain and is flanked by The Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping and entertainment centre! What more can you ask more? ... and it's got a really good SPA! over 8 years ago

    What would you recommend doing on a two day stopover in Dubai?

    Try the Big Bus Sightseeing Tour of Dubai - which takes some of the key spots in Old and New Dubai. http://www.bigbustours.com/eng/dubai/custompage.aspx?id=day%20tour I recommend it because it's not easy getting around in Dubai and can be slightly expensive if you don't know where you're going. over 8 years ago
