Even after reaching Mumbai, we could not forget the spell of Goa. The whole experience of Goa was unforgettable for us that really made our honeymoon a celebration. Especially, the breeze coming from the sea whispering romantic melodies in the ears was just creating a perfect romantic ambiance. The wonderful attractions of this destination just insisted us to stay there for a long time. Though we didn’t feel like coming back yet we had to.

The next day in Mumbai started with one hour boat ride with my spouse. This romantic ride took us to the lush green Elephanta Island, where we saw the beautiful Elephanta Caves. These intricately carved caves date back to 8th century. The whole experience was amazing and the beautiful locations blessed with sheer natural beauty added charm to it.

To continue this wonderful experience, I persuaded my spouse to go on Bollywood tour. This full day tour offered us to opportunity to visit a film studio where we could see live shooting. To witness the glimpse of bollywood stars was like a dream come true for me.

The other popular attraction worth to mention is Kanheri Caves in Mumbai. They are a group of rock-cut monuments, located north of Borivali. The name, ‘Kanheri’, is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Krishnagiri’ that means ‘black in colour’. These caves were also carved out of a giant piece of basaltic rock.

It is a must visit destination for short excursions. These popular caves date back to 2nd -9th centuries and are known to be carved out by Buddhist monks. They are one of the biggest Buddhist monastic establishments on the Konkan coast.

The other attractions, which became a part of our exploration during the tour were Gateway of India, Marine Drive, the Towers of Silence and the Dhobi Ghat. We also paid a short visit to Mani Bhawan, a small museum dedicated to the life of Mahatma Gandhi. In the late evening, we were transferred to the International airport from where we took a flight back to home.

At the end of our honeymoon tour, we were happy to select Goa as our honeymoon destination. A trip to Goa really gave a magic start to our new life with its never-ending charm and captivating natural beauty.
