What to eat and drink on your Goa holiday
The state of Goa serves a range of Indian food from all across this vast country. However, the local diet of rice and fish curry is the most commonly found dish. High-end restaurants to beach huts will all serve this delicious local staple which, despite being cheap, is truly sensational in terms of flavour. The food also has a Portuguese flair due to the district's imperial past. This is clearly visible in dishes like kingfish in garlic and prawn balchao.
A general rule of thumb is to avoid the fancy restaurants and eat in the shacks and local places – it's where you'll find the best quality cuisine and pay the least for it. Some of the best restaurants in Goa to check out are Souza Lobo Bar & Restaurant in North Goa, Starlight and Bob's Inn.
Art and culture in Goa
Step outside your Goa accommodation and you'll be greeted by an excellent range of cultural attractions and museums. Panaji is the capital of the state and where you'll find the largest concentration of museums. The Goa State Museum and the Goa Science Centre and Planetarium are not to be missed, the latter of which is fantastic for children.
If you're interested in religious buildings then the Bom Jesus Basilica and Church of St Francis of Assisi are sure to delight. The main religious site in the area is the Shree Manguesh Shantadurgai Prasanna Temple, a glorious structure that's well worth a visit. There are many local shops selling a range of eclectic items; from hand-painted ceramics to fine wines and cashew nuts. Take time to explore the local stores, many of which are reasonably priced and sell quality goods.
Family holidays in Goa
Goa's combination of serene and vibrant atmospheres makes it suitable for either friends or family travelling together to experience the beauty of this gorgeous corner of India. Its relaxed village bazaars are the ideal place for youngsters to experience Indian market culture. For some excitement, get in touch with Goa Jungle Adventure, and set out exploring on a jeep tour or canyoning.
The buzzing nightlife of Goa
Goa offers a delightfully vibrant nightlife to discover. Leopard Valley, based in a jungle quarry, is one of the more unique clubs in the region and has a very energetic vibe. Alpha Bar is a little more casual, and an excellent place to kick back with a glass of wine and music. Cuba Bar and Restaurant is great for enjoying some food and a drink or going dancing late into the night, and is another example of the global flavour of Goa.
Exploring beyond Goa
There is a whole lot more to explore beyond Goa; from bustling Mumbai to the majestic Taj Mahal, your options are truly endless. Most travellers enjoy a trip to Goa alongside another destination elsewhere in India, using Goa as a place for relaxation in, what can otherwise be, a frenetic country. Getting around India by train is an authentic and cheap way to reach many destinations. However, for covering extensive distances flying is advised due to the size of the county.
