Festivals in Goa:

Experience the pomp and show during the enchanting festivals and fairs in Goa, and have a magical holiday. Tourists from all over the world flock to this destination as there is always a vibrant party scene and Goa festivals are celebrated with much gusto and enthusiasm. From monsoon to the winter season, this city will never let you face a dull moment.

Christmas and New Years are celebrated to a major extent here and the festivities carry on till dawn. Another festival you shouldn’t miss out on is the local seafood festival during November. This five day event takes place on the beaches of Goa and there are various local stalls selling delicious Goan cuisine. Get a taste of Goa at the fish stalls and the the Kokum Kadhi is a must try.

If you are looking for more grand celebrations, visit Goa in February as this is when the Carnival takes place. This three-day festival was started by the Portuguese during the 18th century and involves colorful feasts. You will get to witness a dynamic mix of colour, dance, enthusiasm and music. There are also mega parades where various bands perform and people dawn numerous costumes. It is full of fun and frolic and showcases the essence of the Goan spirit.

Other festivals that are also celebrated in a big manner include the Feast of the Three Kings, Bonderam festival, the Feast Of St. Francis Xavier, the Sao Joao Festival and the Shigmotsav.

Goan cuisines:

A visit to Goa is incomplete without trying some of the delicious local cuisines depicting a true collaboration where the east meets the west in a delectable array of dishes. Goan cuisines include tantalizing spicy seafood dishes, traditional Goan snacks, a variety of sweet and savory items and much more! The Indo-Portuguese influence is evident in the food of Goa that can be seen in the bhali-pau, classic fish curry rice,  the vindaloo and a spicy xacuti sauce.

Some of the other Goan specialities include the multi-layered cake Bebinca, the delicious spicy gravy dish Ambot Tik, the thick coconut gravy dish Crab Xec Xec, the spicy coriander dish Chicken Cafreal, the rich pork stew Sorpotel, mushroom xacuti and the white and fluffy cake Sanna.

Most of the Goan restaurants also offer chourico (pickled pig's liver cooked in vinegar with tamarind) along with their dishes. You will get to taste a lot of chillies and cashew nuts as well as coconut sauces in traditional Goan dishes. Make sure you also sip on some delicious local and imported beers and wines like feni etc.

Hub of souvenirs:

A shopaholic’s true delight, Goa is crammed with plenty of flea markets and night bazaars where you can pick a variety of items. From hippie clothing to shell and bamboo work, junk jewellery, terracotta and brassware, and feni and bebinca, you can find it all. Most of the flea markets take place at the beaches like the Wednesday market at Anjuna, the Saturday Night Bazaar at Arpora, the Panjim Market and the Mapusa Market.

At the Mapusa market, you can souvenirs, like: antique pieces, traditional handicrafts, textiles, spices, Goan pottery, fruits, sausages and more. At the other flea markets, you can purchase local handicrafts, clothes, trinkets, footwear, beachwear and more. Spend an entire day at these markets picking up souvenirs for your loved ones and indulge the shopaholic in you!

    Tanu's 5 days trip to Goa

    Find below my feedback for my trip to GOA from CHD 1. Rooms alloted were good and clean but a little bit on expensive side . Should have been charged less for same . 2. Taxi transfers were good with prompt response . Even sudden change in plan was accepted and planned accordingly transfer early morning . One thing to note ------ taxi driver from goa airport to flora residency made us paid airport entry charge of INR 50 at airport exit . 3. Good response from Gaurav and you whenever made contact with you guys . 4. Breakfast served was good in both hotels . My overall rating for trip is 4 out of 5.

    Lokendra's 6 days trip to Goa

    Whatever Itinerary committed with you may or may not be fulfilled. Commitments on Paper will stay in paper only. We have booked a trip to Goa and had faced multiple issues with the vendor. listing below: 1. Committed for Hi Team during the first three days at Hollywood Resort , but was denied by Hotel and was not further addressed by the Vendor as well. We have called the vendor for the same but sadly they just said "it was Hotels decision to stop the same" , but was it written on the Itinerary ? it was committed but not fulfilled. 2. Commitment of First night surprise Cake - Missed . Have to follow up even on second day for the same. Sad. 3. Commitment of Complementary Dinner on Day 4: Missed. Have to follow up even for this and was server at 10 PM. We expected a smooth and error free trip, but it was not that ways. Hollywood Resort : Over Rated and over charged.

    Kamal Nagvani

    Delhi

    Kamal's 6 days trip to Goa

    Our travel agent was very helpful Bhanu. The hotel's zuri white sand and Hyatt were outstanding. But I was disappointed with okean de Goa, very far and no shops near. This is not 4 star property. It is 2 star and we paid for 4 star. We were promised suite room also but we got cheapest room and 3rd grade services. Not a good end to trip but start was good as hotel zuri and Hyatt and Bhanu were really helpful. My overall rating is 3.5/5. 5 star properties - zuri, and Hyatt were good but okean was pathetic.

    Npnaidu's 3 days trip to Goa

    All was good except 2nd day Site seeing driver phone was not reachable for more than an hour in the parking area. Later got alternative number through agent and reached which delayed the day plan and could not cover all places. Pickup and drop to airport was on time and hotel food was good and people including driver is supportive.
