I stayed at a friend's place in Valpoi, Goa. Surrounded by lush green forests and a river, it is literally a place out of the Jataka tales fairy land. I like the place for it's nonchalant vibe. This place does not figures in the 'to go' list of tourists but if you love nature and want to witness flourishing and untarnished natural beauty , you must visit this place . Th best way is to hire a scooty and just drive through the surroundings. There are some corners and twists and turns inside which lie hidden and are no less than a hidden wonderland in terms of peace and beauty they offer!
