First time in Goa?

Hi

If your'e thinking of visiting Goa for the first time, then please read this trip report.

tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297604-i6045-k6…

Most of all, research, research and then do some more research.

This site has so much more to offer than just Visa advice.

Good call. Badgerlad. Just read Steves original report - top class. I think the next 16 days will see me re-reading so much my brain might explode. This forum has been invaluable for my prep.

Badger, thanks for that. I feel embarrassed TBH, lol.

After only 1 trip to Goa i honestly wouldn't hesitate booking a last minute cheap flight (as long as i have a visa) and sort my own acommodation out when i get there, it'd be a total piece of cake. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I'm already on countdown to 7th December 2013 (321 days to be exact, lol) when we have Goa penciled in for another visit. Never doing another package deal there either, there's way too much to see.

Emerald is still the king of trip reports, that won't be topped.

For all the first timers asking about prices, print this off and digest it, i took it with me and read it on the plane.

It's a few years old now but it gives you a damn good idea on costs.

Steve,

I read the 2009 report after yours; how the hell did he do that? He must have taken his secretary, who must have done shorthand! Comprehensive or what?

I've printed off your report and it'll go with me.Cheers.
