New Year in Goa: where and how to relax for tourists?
New Year’s holidays are an excellent opportunity to go on a trip. At the same time, the Indian state of Goa remains one of the most popular holiday destinations among our compatriots for many years, ready to offer tourists at this time of year a warm sea, delicious food and an incredible atmosphere of celebration and unity with nature. In addition, we should not forget that in the first half of the 20th century, India was a colony of the British Empire, having gained independence only in 1947, against which the country is extremely respectful to Christian and European traditions.
One of the main advantages of this destination is the warm weather, which Russians lack so much in winter: in January, the sea in Goa warms up to +28 degrees, during the day, tourists can sunbathe in the sun, warming the air to +30. At the same time, it is quite possible to count on comfortable +20 – +22 degrees at night. Also the undoubted advantage of this region are quite low prices, although during the Christmas holidays they are a bit overpriced. So, a glass of freshly squeezed juice will cost tourists about 120 rubles. A dinner with seafood on average will cost about 800 rubles.
What to see in Goa?
First of all, it is worth noting that in this application you will find a suitable professional guide to Goa and India. One of the most popular tourist destinations is Dudhsagar Falls, located on the territory of the Mall National Park. The road to it will take about 1.5 hours, while you can get to the natural sights as a train, and as part of the excursion group by bus or taxi. By the way, the last option will be the most convenient for tourists who travel by a small company: first, the price of a taxi is the same depending on how many people are traveling in the car, secondly, during such a trip, tourists can always stop at the place they like and admire the scenery and, thirdly, being on the spot the driver will be happy to tell you where to buy tickets, etc. If you go back to the waterfall itself, then on the way to it tourists meet local monkeys, who are happy to take bananas from their hands. By the way, treats for the inhabitants of the jungle should be bought at the entrance to the reserve. It is also worth considering that the road to Dudhsagar on the Mall itself is also not designed to go on foot. Therefore, tourists should get ready for a 20-minute off-road jeep trip.
Another interesting place in the resort, about which, in most cases, Russian tourists still do not know, is Shiva’s face on Vagatore – carved on
New Year in Goa
Returning to the celebration of the New Year itself, it is worth noting that Goa is known for its nightclubs and discos under the open sky, so tourists will not be bored on New Year’s Eve and Christmas holidays. Cubana clubs are among the most popular places to offer popular dance hits and Curlie’s to guests, great for electronic music lovers, including goa-trance, as well as the largest in the state of Paradiso.
However, travelers who are planning to go on holiday to India should definitely take into account that during the New Year and Christmas holidays, the number of people who want to relax in sunny Goa grows many times, therefore it is unlikely to be alone even on the most uncrowded beaches. However, those who go for a wonderful festive mood and good company will definitely suit this place.
