Day 1

Started mumbai at 5am and reached in time for a gorgeous Sunrise at Gorai Beach, The pagoda which is situated right next to Esselworld opens at 9am, you can either stroll around the peaceful garden there or u can do a 1 day or 10 day course, the main dome which is the world's Largest stone dome with no Pillars is Massive but entry is only allowed if u do the course or you can view it from the view gallery, it has a Food court inside and other small gardens and domes where u can relax, you can end the day visiting the beautiful Vellankini Church at Uttan beach which is close to it and has great views. Passing through Fishermen / Koli Villages it has such a Goan vibe.

DSLR Cameras are not allowed but you can click pictures on your Phone, a concept i am yet to understand 🤔
