  1. Tibet tours very enjoyable with the aid of Tibet train travel. Qinghai-Tibet train is an reasonable way to roam all around beautiful Tibet. It is a best choice or most of the tourists. You're advised to not run and even not get animated at the height, or else you may feel very much uncomfortable.

  2. Goa is more photogenic than it is made out to be. Aside from its beaches, its old cathedrals make for an eye-popping affair. Churches like Basilica of Bom Jesus vouch for it.
