This proposition is probably obnoxious! There are so many places to visit in India alone, why go to the same place over and over again? True, Goa has amazing beaches and the winds of Portuguese culture can still be felt in the air, but is that reason enough to visit the place every year? Yes? No? Let’s find out!
So, what makes Goa a fascinating destination, apart from its beaches? It’s culture obviously. True, every place has its unique culture. But Goa’s culture is vivacious and colorful. Some of the noted festivals and events celebrated in Goa are:
• Feast of St. Francis Xavier (December)
• Shigmo (springtime)
• Three King’s Feast
• Sao Joao Festival (June)
• Feast of Our Lady Rosary/ Navelim Feast (November)
• Carnival (February)
• Bonderam Festival
• Boat Festival/ Tripurari Poornima (November)
• Christmas/Midnight Mass (December)
Wow! That alone is reason for you to visit Goa every year – you can’t possibly cover all of that in one trip. And while you are planning trip to Goa do not miss out on the wonderful things Goa has in store for you:
Rent a jeep in Goa:
It’s always fun to go driving anywhere in Goa or even rent a bike/jeep. Depending on the season 2 wheeler rates can be as low as Rs. 250 per day, while cars can be rented for Rs. 600-800 per day. However, you need to be very careful about documentation as you don’t want to be caught off guard and without papers.
