Description

Today, your local host will meet you at the hotel and will proceed with you to the first point, the ferry crossing experience, the ferry crossing is usually very crowded during peak hours (08 hrs-09 hrs), you will soon experience the mad rush otherwise its just a sail from one point to the other.

Once you have reached to the other end of the jetty in Panjim, your host will take you to the fish & vegetable market, walk through the bustling Panjim fish and vegetable market – this is a large colorful market where you can see all sorts of interesting things on offer, including household wares, spices, fish, meat, vegetables and many other goods. It's a great way to see daily life in Goa! Later either stop for some small bite or head directly to Betim jetty.

Later, we take the Tuk Tuk ride - Yellow Goan rickshaws which are the only ones in GOA with doors on either sides. Ride towards the Mary Immaculate conception church - This Church is located in the heart of the city. It is one of the first churches to be built in Goa with its church bells being the second largest in the world. Best viewed at night when the entire monument is ablaze with lights. Earlier, it is said to have acted almost like a lighthouse for weary sailors. The imposing structure speaks volumes about the religiosity of the times (1540's).

Later visit past the Clube Vasco Da Gama, here the first Indo-German Friendship society is nestled, they have special programs lined up in the month of October (Beer festival). Further down town head towards the Abde Faria statue - The statue of Abbe Jose Custodia Faria, is that of a priest hypnotizing a woman and is located in a small square just near the Secretariat in Panjim. Alexender Duman writing his Count of Monte Cristo fifty years later included in his novel a prisoner in the Chateau known as the Mad Monk. He gave this character the name of Abbe through hardly on the true facts of his adventurous life. Later we end the trip near café venite or Panjim Inn.
