Goa tour packages from Chandigarh
Chandigarh is a planned and unique city where you have the age-old attractions of The Rose Garden, The Capitol, Pinjore Gardens, Museum and Art Gallery, Sukhna Lake, The High Court, The Secretariat and a lot more that is enveloped in clear blue skies and a faint hint of a mountainous backdrop somewhere beyond. Chandigarh spells the call of the mountains not very far off. But in spite of its attraction and its charm, Chandigarh misses the allure of the wide blue seas that only Goa can gift to the tourists and travellers of Chandigarh.
Chandigarh is a modern city and a union territory of India. Chandigarh serves as the capital of the two major neighbouring states of North India — Punjab and Haryana. Chandigarh might be overwhelming to the tourists both international and domestic who are visiting from outside, but the people of Chandigarh simply love to rush off to Goa to spend vacations in search of the extra zing of the sea beaches, fun, food and frolic that one can catch up with only in an exotic location such as Goa.
