Shiwam Verma (General Manager, Royal Orchid Beach Resort & Spa) shares his recommendations about what Goa has to offer:
An ideal place (beach/water park/spice farm/heritage site etc) to trot
to this season is:
Goa’s charm still remains with its beautiful beaches & life really trots here, so besides other activities enjoy the beaches like Ashvem, Mandrem in North & Agonda, Palolem in South Goa.
Things you must see and do at that place are:
Tiracol fort, which has a good history of 17th Century Portugal time. It is not like normal fort which we see in many historical cities, it has a different look & feel.
Some delectable Goan dishes that you must try are:
Goa is famous for its cuisine & each dish has its own taste & beauty. But if I need to take one name that will be baked jumbo crab with white sauce & cheese. Taste better with Garlic toasted Goan Pao.
A local restaurant for a traditional Goan culinary fix is:
There are many in Goa that serve traditional Goan cuisine, but if you ask me certainly I will say try out Boat Quay Grill at Royal Orchid Beach Resort, Uttorda.
Things that you must add to your itinerary for an ideal day in Goa could be:
There have been lot of additions for tourists in Goa such as Hot air balloon, Water rafting, Helicopter ride etc. Now another addition is Duck boat. People should add these activities too in their itinerary.
The most scenic place in Goa is:
If you ask me it is Arambol & Vagator beach where I feel completely lost. It is not crowded but has a beautiful natural scene of beach, rocks, coconut trees etc.
A heritage site that you shouldn’t miss is:
I think it is Old Goa church.
A night club where you must party at is:
The best place for all the shopaholics to be is:
Goa is not much known for shopping but certainly trend is changing as Big brands make theirway Into Goa. Panaji is a good place for shopping or Mall de Goa andCaculo Mall. If someone wants local product then Mapusa market on every Friday or Wednesday flee market during season.
The best place to experience wildlife in Goa is:
I don’t have much knowledge about wildlife but I have visited Bondla & Mollem sanctuaries which are quite good
