Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Although Goa is known for the beaches,nightlife and famous parties don't forget to respect the traditional way of life, cover up when roaming around the streets and avoid bikinis and showing to much skin.

Liked: Goa is an amazing place to kick back and relax, plenty of beach activities and day excursions to be had venturing into the city Panaji. Although many locals will tell you the culture of india has dissipated in Goa there are still plenty of willing local to sit down with you and have a cuppa and share their beliefs and traditional goan heritage and current practices. Travelling in off season had its ups and downs the heat may be unbearable for some but those that can stand those hots days you cant beat the prices on a great ac room.

Disliked: The only downside to travelling in off season beside the 40 degrees 1pm-4pm, a lot of the local stores are closed and shut up for the season in preparation for monsoon, beat the crowds but not the heat.
