Between all the things to do in Goa and all the things that you want to do in Goa, there are exactly 10 things that you simply must do when on Goa tour. Here’s a list of them all.
1. See dolphins
You wouldn’t have thought Goa to be a dolphin-seeing kind of place. But, it is! There are many boat services on which you can embark to see dolphins frolic and play around in the sea. The experience is sure to be better than *any* video you’ve seen on National Geographic, trust me.
There are some items that are best purchased in Goa. These include all kinds and varieties of swim-wear, jholas, harem pants and colourful of accessories + beads. There are numerous shops that line the streets, beaches of Goa and many places to see in Goa, so choice won’t ever be a problem.
3. Get a tattoo
Seriously, what’s the harm? Temporary, henna or permanent – you can choose to get just the type of tattoo that you’d like.
Given the high number of tourists that flock to Goa each year, the food scene here has grown multi-fold. While the sea-food options are to die-for, the numerous shacks are the perfect place to hang-out, chill with friends and have a good time + meal.
Undoubtedly, one of the best things to do in Goa is to visit its umpteen beaches. Lie down on the sand, bathe in the waters or go parasailing or gliding – Goa’s beaches are a joy. If you are in a large group, do spend the night at the beach. It will be an experience you won’t ever forget.
Exotic river cruises or sunset cruises that offer live music and dance performances are a sheer joy. Embark on one of these and see the fun song & dance side of Goa.
Needless to say, Goa has some of the best and oldest churches in India. Make it a point to a visit a shrine or two and observe + appreciate their beautiful architecture.
8. Ride a bike
The best way to see Goa is to hire a bike (Vespa) and to ride non-stop, all day on its roads and routes. So, hire one as soon as you reach your destination and explore this sunny + beachy state on a two-wheeler.
9. Ayurvedic angle
There are many ayurvedic centres in Goa. Head to one of these and allow the ancient healings & medicines to de-stress and re-energise you.
The 10th item in the list of top 10 things to do in Goa is, not surprisingly, party. Go wild, get rid of your inhibitions and simply have a good time.
