1. Planning


Plan your trip and make bookings in advance. Planning your trip in advance will not only help you in preparing a proper itinerary, but it also helps you financially.

You can save up to a lot of money on flight bookings and accommodation. If you are planning to stay at a hotel, try planning your trip on weekdays, because hotel room prices go up way higher for weekends in Goa.

Look for a hotel that’s close to the beach and other activities that you might have planned out for your trip. That way you save time and money on conveyance.


2. The Season


It’s essential that you plan which season you want to visit Goa in. Because it subsequently affects your whole itinerary. According to various tourists, winter season in Goa is the best season to be able to absorb its beauty and serenity in its purest form.

It’s just after the monsoon, and the weather is apt for any kind of activity that might wanna go for. For example, winter is the best time to visit Goa for water sports because the water gets cleared up after monsoons and you get the best of sun, sand, and water. So make sure you plan your trip keeping the season in mind.


3. The Essentials


The Goa weather can be a bit unpredictable at times. So it’s important you carry all the necessary things to protect yourself. Goa at night can get quite chilly at times, so carrying a light jacket will help you enjoy the weather at its best.

For Goan afternoons, be sure of the fact you are carrying a sunscreen, a scarf/hat to protect yourself from the harmful rays that can be quite harsh on the sensitive skin and do some damage if not protected properly. So before stepping out, check whether you all prepped up or not.


4. Budget

Save money

Goa sure is known to be a party place, somewhere you can lose yourself entirely. But it’s important you prepare a budget for yourself so that you don’t overspend and can keep track of your money.

Be conscious of the money you spend there and allocate yourself a daily budget accordingly. Putting a tab on your spending capabilities will not only help you later, but it will also make sure things pan out smoothly for you on the trip so that you don’t get into any trouble.


5. Flea Market


One place where you can practice your bargaining skills and go nuts is flea markets of Goa. You can find yourself some attractive jewelry, clothes, shoes and various other handicrafts that can adorn the interiors of your house.

You just can’t miss out on Anjuna Beach’s flea market. Make sure you have set your Wednesday evening aside for shopping at Anjuna Beach.

It’s indeed a sight to watch where tourists from all over the world buy clothes, souvenirs for themselves and bargain like a pro. Not only that but it’s a great way to meet new people and make friends along the way.


6. Don’t Stress Too Much


Last but not the last, don’t forget to have fun on your trip, spread positivity and rejuvenate yourself in the best possible way. Goa has a lot to offer; it’s only about how you receive it and make use of it. After having made all the arrangements for yourself, all you have to do is have a great experience and take things as it comes.
