Arriving in Goa

Have you found one of the many cheap flights to Goa? Well, welcome traveller to one of the most exciting destinations on the planet! Goa flights will more than likely land at Goa International Airport in the nearby town of Dabolim (it is also known as Dabolim Airport). It's a little ways from the actual town of Goa. Once you've disembarked from Goa flights, getting into the city will prove to be an easy trip. You can rent a car or hail one of the taxis that wait outside the terminal, or you can hop on one of the public buses that serve Goa and its nearby destinations. There's also a train stop that connects the airport to other local stops.

Getting Around Goa

Goa is a diverse and beautiful region with plenty of sights to see. You'll probably need to rely on some sort of motorised transportation to get around to the different sights. Renting a car is always an option, if you'd like to be behind the wheel to trek around. You can also rent a motorbike, if you prefer a more adventurous way to venture around Goa. There is also an extensive and very cheap public bus system throughout Goa. Check in at your hotel for a schedule. Of course, there are also plenty of taxicabs throughout Goa, which is nice if you don't want to worry about finding your way around in an unfamiliar area.

Main Attractions in Goa

Cheap flights to Goa will bring global explorers to a region filled with gorgeous beaches -- hey, there's a reason Matt Damon holed up there in the second Bourne movie! Well, actually, the beaches probably weren't the reason, but the beaches are beautiful none-the-less. There are dozens of amazing, sun-kissed locations to hang out at and get a tan. Try Anjuna Beach, Baga Beach or Vagator Beach if you're looking to just hang out and soak up the beautiful weather. The beaches aren't the only things to see in Goa, though. Stroll through the "Old Goa" neighbourhood in Panaji or take the Panjim Heritage Walk for a glimpse into Goa's history, or spend a few bucks at the Panaji casinos. If you're travelling with kids, there's plenty of fun to be had at the Splashdown Waterpark.

Shopping, Dining and Night Life in Goa

Shoppers in Goa need to make a stop at the bustling Wednesday market in Anjuna or the two bustling Saturday-night bazaars to find a wide selection of local goods. You can also trek to the Caculo Mall to find more traditional brands and shops. 

You'll also want to visit the restaurants along the beach for some local cuisine. Look for specialties like vindaloo, fish curry or fried fish. If you're looking for higher-end dining, head to La Plage in Ashwem or Thalassa in Vagator. 

The beaches and cities of Goa offer up a tonne of options for party goers who want to dance and drink the night away. Both North and South Goa have plenty of great clubs. Try Cafe Looda's or Curlie's in Anjuna, or Gatsby or Boomerang in Colva. Goa is also famous for some of it's locally-brewed drinks. Try a batch of the "feni" alcohol, made from either coconut or the cashew apple. It packs a punch!
