Goa is a wonderful holiday destination. The great weather; the food; the culture;the people; the scenery – all make for a wonderful winter holiday destination. And best of all, its excellent value for money!
Goa is a state on the west coast of India and it has become popular with British visitors over the last few years. In fact, many Brits have bought holiday homes in Goa and they spend a good part of the winter there. Goa is about 10 hours flying time from the UK and flights operate from Gatwick, East Midlands and Manchester between the months of November and April. These months are the best time to visit as the weather is about 30C and there is little rainfall.
Another reason why you should visit Goa is that the food is great and very cheap. A typical meal for two people including drinks will cost about £6 in total so you won’t need as much spending money as you would if you were in Europe.The standard of hotels varies. Goa has some excellent 5 star hotels.
The Leela Palace is one of the best and rivals many of the best hotels that you will find anywhere. There are plenty of 2 and 3 star hotels. The 2 star hotels tend to be basic but most have swimming pools.Goa is divided into north, south and central. The majority of the hotels are in north Goa and the main resorts are Baga, Calangute and Candolim.
These resorts have most of the 2 and 3 star hotels and the area is more commercialised than south Goa. In south Goa you will find the majority of the 4 and 5 star hotels and the area is less commercialised than the north.There are some cracking deals to be had in November and early December.
A week including flights and a 2 star hotel will cost about £329 per person and 2 weeks at the 3 star Nazri Resort on Baga Beach will cost from £469 per person.
