5 Ways to Make your Goa Vacation Unforgettable

Posted by Veena World Tour & Travels on December 24th, 2020

Goa is one of the most popular destinations in India. To explore this state, you should visit the Old Latin Quarters, explore the Charao Island, participate in a sports activity, eat local delicacies, and discover the southern side. Holiday packages in Goa should be booked wherein these unique experiences can be part of your itinerary. 

Goa is a travel enthusiast’s paradise because of its blue sea, friendly locals, and mouth-watering food. Besides this, it is the ideal place to relax and unwind with your loved ones without getting hassled by any disturbances from the outside world. For people who love to party, this state is blessed with the most happening clubs and beach shacks that host magical disco nights as well. To make the most of your trip, mentioned below are five off-beat ways that can help you make it an unforgettable experience: 

  1.      Explore the Old Latin Quarters 

Ever heard of Fontainhas? We bet you have not! It is one of the hidden treasures located in the heart of Goa’s capacity city, Panjim that most tourists pass by but never really visit. Also known as the Old Latin Quarters, this heritage colony has preserved its culture and traditions. In fact, there are heritage walks being organised in this area to understand the lifestyle of the people residing here in ancient cottages.

  1.      Visit the Island of Charao

It is a well-known fact that tourists vacationing in Goa tend to spend most of their time in the northern part of the state. This is primarily because of the popularity that places like Baga, Anjuna, and Vagator have gained in the past few decades. However, there are numerous islands in this state that you can visit. Charao island is one of the most naturally gifted places where you can find flora and fauna in their best element at Dr Salim Bird Sanctuary. 

  1.      Participate in a Sports Activity 

A lot of individuals have phobias related to water and height. But this does not mean that you should restrict yourself by avoiding an adventure activity altogether. Goa has reputed sports companies who offer kayaking, jet skiing, paragliding, and several other activities with safety gears for your protection. Moreover, if you still do not feel up to it, then participating in a trek near Dudhsagar Falls can help in getting your adrenaline dosage too. 

   4.       Devour Local Delicacies in Panjim 

Let’s be honest. Can your vacation in Goa without eating local delicacies? Absolutely not. With influences from Konkan and Portuguese cuisines, Goan food is truly the best of both worlds that you simply cannot miss out on. Our recommendation would be to research restaurants and shacks that are most visited by the locals because the food in these places is guaranteed to be authentic. Also, trying out Goa’s very own alcoholic beverage, toddy is a must. 

  1.      Discover the Gems of South Goa

When you land in Goa, the only glimpse of the southern part of this state you get is when you step outside the airport to hail a taxi. But if you really wish to discover Goa, then taking out some time for South Goa is essential. The spice plantation is a good way to begin your journey in these parts where you will be given a tour along with a buffet lunch. Some of the oldest churches such as Basilica of Bom Jesus, Se Cathedral, Church of Holy Spirit, and the like are situated around South Goa, so do make a pit stop to pay your respects! 

What are you waiting for? Book your hotel, pack your bags, and visit Goa right away.
