Port city of karnataka an over night journey by bus from Bangalore. Lots of verdant greenery, not a very clear city & nothing much to write about the beach either.

As the name suggests, it is the ideal dessert location of every person visiting mangalore. A must visit once in a lifetime place, and the subsequent visits will happen automatically. No visit to mangalore is complete without a visit to this place!

It would be difficult to believe having traveled the breath of the world, I must admit that Ideals Ice Cream is by far the best I have had. The quality is simply the best.
