I visited Goa for a week and I had a really amazing experience. My family and I stayed at Hotel La-Paz Gardens which is just 4kms away from the Goa International Airport. We managed to book a private jet on bookmycharters.com. It was a great experience at a reasonable cost. Fort Aguada is a lighthouse that is a well-preserved seventeenth-century Portuguese fort standing in Goa on Sinquerim Beach. Also, try visiting Mapusa as it has a flea Market which has its transformation from a regular bazaar during the rest of the week, to a quintessential Goan flea market on Fridays.The market can be roughly divided into three sections: the first one selling Indian clothes, the second one housing the bandstand, and the third one filled with food shacks and stalls selling western clothes.
