6 reasons to visit Goa in Summers

The moment my friends and I think of a getaway, Goa is at the back of everyone’s mind. It’s been the go-to destination for all like me who love beaches, river cruise, partying, boozing, water sports and delicious seafood. That’s my all time favourite place. What makes it more heavenly in summers is the super economical rates that make for a grand vacation in this Ultimate Tourists Paradise. Here’s How

Super Saving

From accommodation to flight tickets, from sightseeing to  food and shopping, everything is cheaper in Goa during summer.  Sightseeing in Old Goa, visit to temples, churches, shopping time at Panjim, Mandovi river cruise, daily breakfast and accommodation at 3 star Alor Grande Holiday Resort, all costed two of us Rs. 5980. Add to it the free time to relax at the beach, partying at SinQ, and I was in for a fun trip.

Best time for water sports

Parasailing is a must try.  You can bargain like an amateur and get the best deal. Jet skii and other adventure sports are way cheaper as there aren’t many travellers. I love roaring up against the waves. with several visits to Goa I can call myself a jet ski pro.

Shopping is cheaper

Goan handicrafts, antiques, beachwear, home-made pickles, cashewnuts, feni, bebinca, carpets, embroidered textiles, hammocks, spices and jewellery are in for a steal as the markets are not really bustling this season. The markets where you’d find the true flavour of Goa are Anjuna flea market, Panjim market , Calangute market square, Saturday Night Bazaar at Arpora and Mapusa market.You are already in for a good bargain during summers, so shop to your hearts desire.

Camera’s day Out

Best time to play with your photographic skills due to negligible crowd. Get the perfect shot of the churches and beaches without having to ask the crowd to make way for you.

Splurge on Partying

Being a party hub of India, Goa is the ideal party animals paradise. Essentially cheaper in summers, you get discounted food, booze and clubs. Best time to Go Crazy

Romantic Mandovi Cruise

Though you cannot compare it to the bosphorous sea cruise of Istanbul, the Mandovi River cruise is an entertaining one.  If you want to taste Goan culture through its folk songs, dance and live band performances then the sunset dinner cruise is a good option. The cruise departs from the Santa Monica Jetty next to the Mandovi Bridge, where you can purchase tickets.
