When in Goa

10th Jan 2016

Goa, a place where almost the whole youth aspires to go with friends, is India's only place where you don't feel like you are in India.

The "High-Life" is literally literal in Goa. It is a place which can only be truly enjoyed with your friends. I got a chance to visit Goa, with friends for a week. I can easily say that it was one of the best week of my life. We started off by hiring scooters which is pretty much the necessity there. Goa roads are not fancy much, but definitely worth the ride. We started off with beaches. shacks and the "High-Life" of-course. Trying on all the different cuisines and beverages are a must do there. There would be a lot of people offering you temporary tattoos, you really need to be careful on whom you get it done from. For instance, you wouldn't want a "No Regrets" tattoo turn into a regret in your life (Talking from experience).

Curlies, one of the oldest shacks in Goa, is a must visit for all the chicken lovers. Right next to it is the "Shiva Valley", a shack which turns into a Rave party spot in the night is also a must-see sight. Of all the beaches, Baga beach in the North of Goa is the most happening one with forever on and lively shacks and is ever crowded with all types of people. Out of the shacks there, "Brittos" has good Italian food to offer. Right next to it is the "St.Anthony's" which has amazing Karaoke nights after 9 PM. In the nights. the Candolim beach offers peace and having a ice-cream there is a great idea! If you want to have a peaceful and lavish lunch with amazing view, Thalassa, near Vagator beach is the place to go.

Going South of Goa, hiring open Jeeps is a good option. Arambol beach, is a good beach to take long walks and enjoying "Bhutta". One of the shacks, "Horizon" there, offers great food and sitting place and not to forget fast WiFi.

Coming to clubs, LPK(Love Passion Karma) is a decent one, the music is awesome but the drinks are not so appealing there. Cubana, is the most happening one. It has a good pool side seating arrangement with open bar. The dance floor is pretty cool there.

If you want to shop from Goa, I would say only buy souvenirs, The cloth quality is not so great for the price they ask for. Baga has good stores and stalls if you opt for shopping.

Goa is a must visit place and you should definitely plan a trip there with friends. The most important thing to remember when in Goa is "Let Go".
