Trip to Goa: Don’t Miss These 7 Wonderful Itineraries

Are you planning a trip to Goa? It may look tiny on the map, but the place is full of wonders. From golden beaches to enchanting architectural heritage sites, Goa has it all. However, whenever you place for a trip, it is best to plan ahead of departure and research well for the sake of security, hygiene, and FOMO.

I always suggest my readers give YouTube this opportunity to help them SEE how their destination is, and what are the issues tourists have on ground-level. But, apparently, excitement can make you a little too haste in keeping your patience for those lengthy vlogs of other people living life, which is why I did your assignment and found the most unique and fun places that you may not miss on your trip to Goa.

This article comprises an overall of seven great spots to cover in Goa. These destinations are not only found in North Goa but South as well.

So, What’s Up With North and South Goa?

Here’s what the difference is… North Goa is where most itineraries and tourist attractions are found, and South Goa is mostly residential. However, both the areas are super pretty and full of natural beauty. So, let’s get going!
