overnight rice boat trip

Hi All

Has anyone done the rice boat trip up the river is it worth the money??? who is the best boat to go with??

also help ,which is the best area to get a beach hut for a special night so not to near to the tour operators usual haunts .we prefer quite with maybe only one beach shack or bar.

thanks for your help

Hi ya

You could stay in Palolem (Cierans Camp) (I think thats how you spell it) Its run by a really nice English couple and their huts are really lovely, There is a bar at the front where you can see some fantastic sunsets! Cosy Nook is another really popular one, we have not stayed their however its another well located one, the huts were not a touch on Ciarans Camp though. Most the Goan beaches Im afraid to say are far more commecialised then what they were a few years ago, so you will still see many Tour operators my tip to you is go to Palolem and walk along the beach and just go to the huts that you are interested in, if one is booked there will be another and this will be far more cheaper than pre booking. If you also want a special meal for your special night, the Oceanic Seaview is fantastic! romantic! and their cocktails are out of this world!(And their banofee pie is out of this world!)
