Most Instagrammable Places in Goa

Tripoto

Last few days have been really exciting for us. Partially because we were back from a week-long trip to Goa and partially because we enjoyed going through our pictures, videos and other memories from Goa while sharing the blogs and vlogs on Goa. Goa is one place which is beautiful in every sense. Right from being a party lover's paradise to a heaven for those seeking peace, Goa delivers it perfectly. Now, as all the on Goa are live now on our website and our YouTube channel as well, we would like to present some of the Most Instagrammable Places in Goa - A Photostory! We plan to divide it into three sections where we talk about North Goa and South Goa along with a trip to the Divar Islands. Our motive behind bringing this photo-story is to showcase some of the most beautiful and exotic locations of Goa which you can visit during your next trip here. All these pictures are shot on Google Pixel2 XL!

This church is more than 400 years old and the number of years has made it look like straight out of our history books.

Fort Chapora in North Goa is one of the most famous forts in Goa.

The location of this fort, overlooking the sea and the remains from the past makes it one of the most instagrammable places in Goa.

One of the most photogenic areas in Goa, the Fountainhas area provides a dream setup for the Instagrammers. This area has brightly colored old Portuguese houses which have been kept intact with colors added to it. The streets of the Fountainhas areas are usually filled with tourists getting a photoshoot done here.

We have just tried to bring out some of the best locations and pictures from our collection of the Goa trip which we did in July this year. All these pictures are phone clicks which have been shot on Google Pixel 2 XL. As we were chasing monsoons in Goa it was our best decision to ditch our DSLR at places and carry only the Pixel2 XL. The water resistance feature of this phone made our lives easier and peaceful as we did not have to worry about our expensive gadgets getting drenched in the rain.
