Previous: Top 10 December Destinations
Goa is otherwise known as the land of beaches. It is considered the most popular destination in India during December month and is the most expensive one too. Despite the presence of thousands of hotels and beach resorts spread throughout the state and along the coast line, Goa runs out of rooms between the last week of December until the first week of January. So it is highly advisable to book your accommodation way in advance if you want to stay in a nice hotel. But be aware - these hotels are not going to be cheap. Be prepared to shell out at least Rs. 4000 for a decent accommodation in Goa. And much more for 3-4 star hotels.
