If the plans do not include leaving a round sum in India, and the old furniture and small rooms do not make you quiet horror, follow to the north (winter is near). Although here you can find good hotels. The main thing – do not forget to read reviews of tourists, not to round eyes being in place.
North Goa in December is a popular destination. If you want to to come to the state of “savage”, to get it yourself is easy, but finding housing is harder: familiar to us refrigerator, air conditioning and hot water is luxury here.

Slightly immersed in the theme of India, you quickly understand that the cheapest way to get into the country is to buy a tour. Separate flight from Moscow in December will cost at least 27,000 rubles per person. Package – 20 thousand (and even less). Many travelers use this life hacking: take the cheapest last minute tours, and the place they are looking for more decent housing or even spend their holidays in traveling, changing location every few days.
Food: tour operators offering travel по системе bed&breakfast, но from дыхающие упрямо игнорируютbreakfasts – no one wants to get up early for a bun with jam.
