Goa (India)

Why Goa?

Who wouldn’t like to get lost in the bright, white sand beaches, and in the medieval-style paved roads and magnificent historical forts? Goa has it all and much more. While the Southern area of Goa is popular for its peaceful and serene coasts and marvellous beaches, the Northern part is better known for its vibrant nightlife full of casinos, liquor and people from all over the world. There is everything here for all types of people, from solitude-loving introverts to party-crazy extroverts and those who just love to relax over booze.

Places to go

Goa is full of white sand coastlines some of which are Baga, Anjuna, Calangute, Candolim, Morjim, Palolem, and Dona Paula where one can spend an entire day in the water or simply basking in the sun. Goa is not just about beaches but it also offers a range of goodies such as glorious forts like Aguada and Chapora, prominent churches such as Basilica of Bom Jesus and the Church of our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, and a lot of pubs and eateries like the Cafe Mambo, Tito’s at Baga Beach and Bora Bora hut at the Morjim beach which provides mouth-watering food and drinks. Nature lovers need not be disappointed as Goa also offers lush green coastlines for a mini road trip among the deserted roads and Dudhsagar waterfall which is India’s second largest. Goa’s beaches also provide thrilling water sports like parasailing, motor boat rides, banana rides at many of its beaches for those who love exciting adventures.

Apart from these places there are innumerable other options to choose from like Colva beach, Sweet Water Lake, Go-karting near Verna, a morning walk among the palm and coconut plantations, enjoying Konkani music at night with your favourite drinks and having delicious seafood as dinner at the local restaurants. The list never ends.

Where to stay and how to move around

Goa is a heaven for tourists and as the term suggests it has numerous places to stay for all kinds of budgets. Those who are on a shoe-string budget can get a place for as low as 600-1200 INR for a day, while mid-range travellers can stay at a price of 2000-5000 INR and those looking for extravagantly luxurious trip can find the most wonderful all-inclusive resorts if they can dole out around 10000-15000 INR per day.

The most budget-friendly way to move around the different parts of Goa is to rent a bike (two-wheeler) which can also be used to make small road trips to lesser known parts of Goa. Hiring a taxi is another option though it can prove to be expensive as they charge exorbitant prices.

Where to eat

It is advisable not to visit costly restaurants and shacks the whole time as there are numerous small places to eat where savoury dishes are served at pocket-friendly rates. It will be a bit surprising if you visit Goa and don’t drool over the liquor which can be purchased at amazingly low prices.

Just pack your bags and get ready for the infinite fun out there at the most popular tourist destination of India.
