Goa is a place which everybody visits at least once a year. I have been to North Goa multiple times and have explored the beaches and shacks. This October (2016) I got a chance to visit Goa for a bachelorette party; I decided to arrive a day earlier than my friends and explore areas near Panjim on my own. I had already done my research and finalized my itinerary before arriving in Goa. I will reach the guesthouse at Calungute early morning, freshen up, have some breakfast and set out to explore the not so popular but beautiful places near Panjim.
My planned itinerary for a day in Goa
Have brunch in an authentic Goan restaurant in Panjim ->Visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Old Goa -> Take a ferry to Divar Island -> Visit Piedado village and Church of Our Lady of Compassion -> Enjoy the sunset and the river view at Vitorzen Jetty or go for a river cruise at Mandovi River.
