Glimpses of Goa

Hmm… so yea i went to Goa . Everybody does nothing new in there . But I guess what I probably did which most of us dont is to explore the lesser known places as well . For example , How many of us went to the Kaju factory or did underwater diving at Grande Island ?! . Well here is my small compilation of places to see in Goa

Beaches

1. candolium beach

Its probably the best beach in Goa . Its beautiful and peaceful . I enjoyed a delicious plate of Pomfret there .

Architecture and tradition

1. Streets

So as the name suggest , I kept a whole one day just to explore the streets and life at Goa . No fancy beaches or hangouts , just normal walking along the streets capturing what is real Goa like .  Here are few of my best shots , mostly architectures because they were very fascinating but some more from here and there too .

2. Olden times

Oh there is a village makeup which is of-course not real just a made up village scenario of how things used to be in olden times . I would say if you want to know how things were a couple of decade ago , please visit this place , it has replicas of normal day to day lives of people and a voice guided tour .

2. Crabs

Well yea there were crabs too , these things detect motion too quick like  a person  approaching towards them to click a photo and hence run away to their hiding very quick , well nevertheless posting whatever I could get .

So all in all , Goa has much to offer besides beaches and parties . It is rich in biodiversity and marine . It also has many houses and buildings and houses which bear keen resemblance to old Portuguese tradition . When you goto Goa next time  be sure to observer more .
