Gollywood going to Bollywood
Goa is a lovely place even though it has started to become very ''touristy''.

Love the comments from people who say don't go, I bet they have never been and are the typical armchair critics.

Please those telling others not to go, please never go anywhere yourself, you would not be wanted, liked or welcomed with your attitude, everyone else, enjoy yourself!

I was in Goa 2 years ago over Xmas. Loved it. Indians there are very friendly. Lots of Russians now who can be a bit rude.
Talked to lots of women who never once complained about Indian men.
Felt safer than Manchester to me, not kidding.
Do not talk to strangers, stay away from overcrowded place (or even lonely places). always be vigilant,better still DO NOT GO!!!

Long flight without a break! An how would you get back?
Great pruce an deal tho.
It’s not a deal unless you have a return flight. If returns cost 300 then it’s the same as any other airline. Only plus is this is direct.

I would if I could!.. I love Goa
If you have a time machine travel back to Goa in the Late seventies/early Eighties.

not the contrived tourist dump it has evolved to now!

Op pic looks more like Maldives than Goa
Went for similar price last year, used as start of a 6 month trip round Asia so perfect. Check out Palolem, great vibe and amazing beaches. from me
Some reasonable flights back on multiple airlines too on Google Flights.

The link is broke
What about Visa fee & how long does it take to get visa? Can one get visa on arrival in Goa?
How does this link work, I pressed it and it landed me here?

No you have to get visa before you leave it's about £80 now
Pay a bit extra for the right resort, friend went a couple of years ago and rented a villa for equivalent of £5 per night, he felt at danger due to lack of security - His missus sat on the toilet one night and a snake bit her arse.

I went to Kerala with my wife earlier this year & it was a fantastic experience. The food is so different from the typically Bangladeshi food we are served in the UK, the people were incredibly lovely and friendly. Do not talk to strangers is the worst advice ever - that is part of the experience. Of course you need to be careful, but you don't travel this distance to live in a tourist bubble.
Goa is more touristy - but you can hop on a train and get somewhere else pretty quickly. Hotels were also dirt cheap. We used hotels.com a lot.

I miss my breakfast Masala Dosa 😁
If you’ve never been it’s a beautiful place to go, especially the south part. Beaches are awesome. I went over Xmas and new year some yes back and it’s was fabulous. Folk are friendly, nice beaches. Very scenic what more do you want? Stuff that goes on (though no where is safe anymore) is more so in the big cities. Goa is a whole different ball game. 🙃

Not saying you are 100% going to get molested or raped, Kerala is definitely much safer, okay so you were lucky but cannot ignore the stats and India is not called rape capital of the world for no reason. Mumbai used to be very safe for women about 10- 15 years ago but not anymore, when we were in Delhi police had advised us to not to stop at night and keep driving even if you were stopped by the cops.
When we were in Goa I think it was Palolem beach, quietly sitting and enjoying our drinks when a man threw a pebble on one of our girl friend, at first we ignore but when he did again we objected but suddenly about 15-20 of them erupted from nowhere and started hitting us, my friend got cut on the head. Later we were told that these comes there only gang pick up fight. I was surprised that why local authority not doing anything about it.
If any local invites you to party please do not go, no matter how friendly they behavior is. Better be safe than sorry!

BE CAREFUL!!! Remember emergency contact number is 100.
id like to Goa here
If anyone has booked this flight, I would like to recommend to try Gokarna instead of Goa. Most people say Goa is a tourist dump now and not what it used to be in the 70/80s and Gokarna is the new chilled Goa. So do make sure you try it!

Thank you.
Not sure why my comment got deleted by the moderators. It was a very popular comment and informative I thought.

Goa is quite a big place. South Goa is very unspoilt. Calangute and Candolim might not be everyones cup of tea, but even relatively close to them there are quiet areas. The areas where Israelis tend to stay are quiet and there is a private beach close to Baga. I forgot what the area is called.
The fairly quiet area with lots of Israelis is Ozran beach and the surrounding area. Some fantastic cliffs near there to get photos with birds of prey flying over head. Personally I like the hustle and bustle of Calangute, Candolim and Baga. But I like exploring other areas, old Goa is very different. But you do have to be very brave to get there on a scooter by yourself!. Fantastic unesco church/cathedrals there too, aswell as ferries to small islands.

You don't have to be a typical Brit drinking in The Red Lion, though if thats your thing then fair enough. I got tired of listening to the same old small minded comments from package holiday Brits in those places. I made friends with Finnish people and I learnt alot from them.

I like to get myself a scooter, have an explore, feed some stray dogs, get something to eat, have a drink and a smoke, have a dance on Tito's and at the night market. Chat to Russians (they aint all rude, infact quite the opposite) chat to Indians and Goans and talk to my Finnish friends. It suits me to a T.
