Take a road trip from Mumbai to Goa.

Murud: Watch the sun majestically rise from the 200-year old Janjira fort, a ferry's ride from Janjira beach.

Ganpatipule: Then drive south towards Ganpatipule to sample some mouthwatering modaks.

Chiplun: You are about 6 hours away from Chiplun, a perfect stopover between Mumbai and Goa. Tryout the Malvani cuisine, a malvani chicken masala, or an amotik and rice should do the trick.

Panjim: Once you've finished lunch, head south, Panjim is about 330 kms away. If your timing is right you could catch the incredible Goan sunset.
