Goa has something to offer for everyone. Inspired by one of the famous Bollywood movie- "Dil Chahta Hai", every final year college student dreams of visiting Goa at least once with friends to strengthen their bond even further, though 90% of the time it never materializes. Goa is also a famous honeymoon destination for a large chunk of newlywed couples as well as is on the top tourist spot for maximum foreigners visiting India to experience Nirvana. Though popularly famous for parties, loud music and nightlife, Goa can be a good vacation spot with family too.

Before booking my tickets to this mecca of pubs and cafes, I too was a little skeptical of my visit there with my family as the culture there is a little liberal than what our parents are used to in other conservative cities. But I thought that this might be a good learning experience for them, exploring different cultures all together at one place.
I booked my tickets from Yatra.com well in advance (in October) and got a great deal of almost 6k per person return for my trip in the first week in February. Best time to visit Goa is from October to February as the temperature is most favorable during this period. Going further, I'll cover things to do, transport options, beaches to cover (as there are 70 beaches in Goa which obviously you can't cover), some good stay as well as restaurant options and perfect itinerary which one may follow while planning their trip.
