What are the best places to stay in Goa?
When visiting a new city, it’s always fun to check out the Old Town, and in Goa, that’s Velha Goa. While it’s close to the city centre, it’s quieter and more relaxing than some of Goa’s more central neighbourhoods. When the region was under Portugese control between the 15th and 20th centuries, Velha Goa served as the capital. While holidaying on flights to Goa, this is where you’ll find many historic buildings, including the Basilica of Bom Jesus and Se Cathedral. After booking cheap flights to Goa, reserve accommodation in Velha Goa if you’re looking for a stay with a suburban vibe.
Fontainhas is Goa’s Latin Quarter, and it’s one of the region’s liveliest neighbourhoods. Throughout Fontainhas, many colonial Portugese buildings have been preserved, and the neighbourhood is alive with vibrant colours. It’s also known as one of Goa’s cultural hubs, with a thriving art scene and wide range of restaurants and cafes. Fontainhas is one of the most central neighbourhoods to explore between return flights to Goa, as it has easy access to both Velha Goa and the beaches. After purchasing tickets to Goa, book accommodation in the Portugese-inspired Fontainhas to be at the centre of all the action.
It’s no secret that spending time at the beach is one of the top priorities for travellers who book airfare to Goa. There are 48 beaches in Goa, and each one has its own personality. Anjuna is a favourite among travellers who book flights to Goa thanks to its relaxed, bohemian vibes. It’s home to a number of hotels that range from budget-friendly guest houses to luxury resorts. Several shops and restaurants are located in Anjuna, and a popular flea market sets up each Wednesday. Plan to stay in Anjuna after arriving into Goa International Airport (GOI) if you’re looking forward to the region’s sprawling beaches.
What is the cost of visiting Goa?
While holidaying on flights to Goa, the local currency is the Indian rupee. $1 AUD is about 50 rupees. You can convert money back in Australia or once you arrive into Goa International Airport (GOI).
Once your airfare to Goa has been booked, start planning accommodation with Webjet. Set aside about $150 AUD per night for a nice hotel. However, there are also luxury options as well as budget-friendly options on Webjet, starting from about $15 AUD per night.
Using local transport between your return flights to Goa is another affordable option to get around. Public buses and ferries cost between 10 and 55 rupees (20 cents and $1.10 AUD), depending on how far you travel. Local taxis cost about 20 rupees (40 cents AUD) per kilometre, or you could hire a private driver for a day for about 3,000 rupees ($60 AUD). Always agree on a price ahead of time, as most Goa taxi drivers don’t use meters.
Sightseeing costs are another factor to consider when you book tickets to Goa. There are countless tours available from the city where you can explore everything from beaches to waterfalls to spice plantations. When you book a tour with local operators, plan to spend about 1500 to 2500 rupees ($30 to $50 AUD), depending on the activity. Food and drink are another aspect to budget for. While holidaying on cheap flights to Goa, plan to spend about 250 rupees ($5 AUD) per meal and 100 rupees ($2 AUD) for a local beer or a latte.
When is the best time to visit Goa?
Goa has three unofficial seasons: cool and dry, hot and humid, and monsoon. The dry season between November and February is one of the best times to plan return flights to Goa. Temperatures hit about 32°C during the day and 21°C in the evenings. This makes for perfect beach-going and hiking weather, but the flip-side to this is that it is Goa’s busiest time of year for tourists. Hotel rates increase as tourists arrive, so book early for the best accommodation and tour rates.
Between March and May, the humidity increases in the lead-up to monsoon season. However, there’s little rain and temperatures are bearable. If you’re looking for a budget holiday, consider booking cheap flights to Goa between March and May.
Monsoon season lasts from June to October. There are heavy rains almost every day, but it’s also the most affordable time to book flights to Goa. And because of the frequent rain, the countryside and waterfalls are especially lush this time of year.
