Useful Tips While in Goa
No trip is ever perfect in every way. There are always those little things which remain in your memory long after your trip is over. So we have compiled a list of useful tips which might help in making your trip a lasting memory of a lifetime. These tips are by no means a comprehensive list but they will help you plan your trip before your embark on it and also when you are actually in Goa.
Although Goa is a pretty safe place as compared to other parts of India it is better to be safe than sorry. Carry your money and travel documents (preferably wrapped in plastic to avoid dampness) in a Money Belt around your waist well hidden from sight.
The best and the safest way to carry your cash around is through traveler’s cheques as they are readily exchangeable in most locations. ATM cards are another convenience. You can use them to withdraw cash from a couple of ATMs in the capital city of Panjim.
The peak season in Goa is between October and January. It is also
the time when Goa is most crowded, more festive than any other time
of the year. The daytime temperatures are comparatively not too hot
and the nights are pleasantly cool. It is also less humid than the
rest of the year.
When in Goa, do not concentrate only on the more famous beaches such as Calangute and Baga. Goa has a number of relatively less crowded beaches which will give you more privacy and even more pleasure. There are also many other interesting places to visit in and around Goa.
