GOA is a great place as long as you adjust to the culture and way of life. We didn't see it at its best as we went at the the start of the Monsoon season but were lucky as it was one of the mildest they have had saw we did see alot of sunshine. We stayed at the Surya Sangolda Aparthotel where the staff could not do enough and on arrival were greeted with flowers and champagne in our room. They brought breakfast to the room every morning too. Our nearest beach was Calangute but we went to many others our favourite was Bagga. The only annoying thing was the men always trying to take pictures of my wife. Some were open and asked permission but most tried to do it secretively especially with phones. Apart from that people were helpful and friendly, the food was great and it was soo cheap! We flew with Kingfisher and spoilt ourselves by upgrading to Kingfisher First which was amazing. Goa os great and hopefully we will return outside of Monsoon seanson one day!

Useful Tips:

Cheap food, drink, taxi's & gifts. Great food. Good shops and resturants in Panjim. Pervy locals.

Goa is a beautiful place with something for everyone. The food is amazing comprising of hundreds of vegetable and meat dishes made with authentic mouthwatering spices. The fruits are exotic and beautifully ripe and organic. The Indian people are so accomodating and friendly even though this is sometimes to the extreme. They cannot do enough for you. We were treat like lords and ladys and thats no exageration. It is an ideal location for a tour of the Taj Mahal which is absolutely mind blowing. You have to be there to experience the feelings you have when you see such an amazing place of love. Tears will certainly come to your eyes as you approach this unbelievably beautiful temple.

Useful Tips:

Temples, Taj Mahal, beautiful secluded beaches, elephants, loads of markets and bargains. Eat anywhere for pennys compared to any of Europe.
