Goa is a popular destination among travelers during December month of the year and folks prefer to celebrate Christmas & New Year on Goan beaches. There are multiple reasons that people choose Goa as a destination during Christmas and New Year times. Goa sounds like the option in India when we start thinking about a destination to celebrate Christmas with friends and family. Goa has very high spirits for the festival which is also driven by it's history and local culture. This Photo Journey shares some information about Goa and how it treats it's guests specially during Christmas and New Year.
Goa is one of the popular & must go destination which are seen in full bloom during Festival season of Christmas. The beach paradise of India is popularly known for its Christmas celebrations around the world and there are some genuine reasons for this.
Being a part of Goa during Christmas time can surely make your vacations very special to live some of the memorable moments for life. But at the same time, it's very important to know that what should you do while in Goa and where to celebrate, when to do what and so on... To make best of Christmas celebrations in Goa, one should be prepared with all the details and prior plan of staying & joining relevant parties on beaches, casinos or cruises.
Christmas Parties are organized in different parts of Goa and all these churches are decorated beautifully to keep the festivity spirits high.
In this Photo Journey, I haven't used most appropriate images related to Christmas but thought of sharing photographs of Churches in Goa, which can be visited on Christmas day or evening. Other things like Beach Parties, Cruise dinners are marketed very well with everyone during Christmas season but a special beauty lies in these historical churches. I never visited these churches during Christmas but I am sure that most of them must be decorated very well for Christmas Evening.
One of the most famous activity on Christmas Eve in Goa is beach party. Most of the beaches organize something special for folks who come to Goa for having some special on Christmas. This is the time of year, when Goa is very crowded and it increases a lot during the Christmas Evening. If you prefer relatively lesser crowd on the beaches, then prefer to stay around South Goa. And if you are looking for something very special and a luxury affair, many of the good hotels in South Goa arrange private parties on beaches which are essentially accessible to folks living in that hotel. I know few of the hotels who do it every year and don't want to mention, as I have never experienced these parties personally.
Nightlife of Goa is already very popular across the world and some specific places are considered outstanding. And during Christmas festive season fun, energy and excitement inreases multiple times, and of-course the cost as well. Goa on Christmas gets really crazy with night clubs, rave parties, pubs, bars, resto-bars, restaurants, hotels, resorts, beach galas etc.
Goa Tourism also does some special arrangements during Christmas to expose everyone to the local Goan Culture & cuisines. Although some of the activities gets lost in the luster of big things happening in the city, but it's worth to visit some of these programs which have an authentic flavor of local culture and their own way of celebrating Christmas.
Your India holidays and the visit to Goa would be incomplete if you don't experience cruising on Mandovi river or other parts of Goa. All these cruises are very well decorated for the Christmas Evening and if you want some personal and luxury affairs, there are possibilities for you to book in advance. But don't expect something exclusive when you are there in Goa. On the spot, things get extremely costly and at times some compromises. Taking a river cruise and exploring the compelling lighting in Panjim makes the experience cherishable.
So if you plan to visit Goa during Christmas or New year to celebrate the special moments with friends & family
