Essentials in Goa
Old Goa: This city once had a population that rivalled London and Lisbon. Today, it's in ruins mostly due to the Inquisition and a major epidemic. What's left to see? Asia's biggest cathedral, archaeological ruins and more.
Mandrem Beach: Of all the beaches, this one is most known for its rustic charm. It's surrounded by caju plantations and while still a quiet getaway, it won't stay this way forever as long as tourism in Goa continues to boom.
Dudhsagar Falls: One of India's largest waterfall can be found just on the boarder with Karnataka, 60km from Panaji. It's especially impressive after the monsoon season when literally tonnes of water fall more than 300m. It's the perfect road trip with your Goa car hire
