A travel to Goa is worth the journey if you make it by road or rail. The scenic views will surely count a lot and make your holiday more fun, unlike if you book a flight ticket. Traveling by train/bus would obviously be budget-friendly & easier on the availability list. Bus fares are a bit higher on price as compared to the train, BUT it would be the best option to reach Goa on the earliest instead of comparatively slower travel by train.

Hire a bike/scooty to explore Goa

You always have an option of hiring a taxi from railway station/bus terminal/airport, but when you are in Goa & you want to explore it to its bits, it is best if you rent a motorbike or a colorful Vespa. The narrow trails, nooks and corners of Goa are worth visiting by your scooter.

It is affordable to rent two-wheelers within the cost of Rs. 500/- per day, and renting a car which would come around Rs. 1,000-1,500/- per day. Also, tourist buses are cheap too, if you are okay to travel with strangers & add some friends to your friend list.

You can search for rooms on Airbnb, booking.com, and many other sites that offer the cheapest of rooms/resorts to stay. North Goa is the busiest hub but staying here in shacks aside the beach would make your stay super fun!

Affordable Adventurous Watersports in Goa

Know that North Goa is the hub for parties, casinos & best restaurants in the city. You can celebrate a day in most of the restaurants & groove to the best music at night clubs. However, a yacht party in Goa should also be on your bucket list; imagine cruising and partying on the Goan waters.

No doubt that you are unaware of the fact that people visit Goa just to booze, explore the cute cafes, & drive around the beaches in the city. Don’t forget to visit the beautiful churches, spice plantations, and taste the authentic Pork Vindaloo in Goan sauce when in Goa, it is bliss.

Plan a trip to Goa during the off-seasons

Most of the rush flows to Goa from October to January, this is the time when the hotel rates in Goa & Casino rates see a rise. If you are visiting during this time, try booking your stay early to enjoy the most of your stay without burning a hole in your pockets.

Alternatively, you can plan a trip to Goa in off-seasons like May to September. During this time, you might experience showers here and there, but it’s no fuss. In fact, a rainy day in Goa is even more beautiful to explore the green abode.

Relish the Goan flavours

best-street-food-in-goa

When you are in Goa, why not relish the true flavours of actual Goa? I personally don’t prefer eating the usual dishes that you would get in any part of India, I would rather gobble the best or staple food of the place that would explode your taste buds with some truest of spices & taste.

So when you are in Goa, go for Goan & Portuguese cuisine that gives you the best of seafood and pork dishes. Savour the sour and spicy taste as much as you can and of as much variety as you want.

Suggestion: Try on the roadside or down-to-earth places that would serve with the magic of authentic Goa.

Shop from Goan Flea market

shopping-market-in-goa

Shopping in Goa is underrated but visiting the flea markets are a marvel to your eyes. The collection of attires, cutlery, bamboo décor items the shops keep are quite budget-friendly. You can find a lot of shops by the beaches that sells some of the best things that would relate to your Goan vibe.

Fridge magnets, hats, the cliché “I love Goa” tees & ornaments made up of seashells & crystals that are really beautiful can be in your shopping bag soon! Buy something you can always have as a memory from Goa. I do it, every time I visit places.
