4) Explore Solo
This is a little place , but so colorful and lively. I walked to almost every possible corners, the markets, the streets, the ghats, the fair at times with mates and when they felt lazy, started exploring solo. I wanted to see the ghats early in the morning, but when my travel mates were sleeping, I got up and went to see all by myself. Then I explored the market and also the fair. I could have just waited for some one to join me, but I later knew Solo is more fun.
