  • Chapora Fort:   Chapora Fort moved out of obscurity and onto the lists of places to visit in North Goa after being featured in the Bollywood blockbuster, Dil Chahta Hai. Built in 1717, the fort has borne witness to various historical events. Standing guard on a hill close to the Chapora River, this defensive structure, once used to deter invaders, now welcomes tourists with excellent views of the surrounding areas offering a palm-fringed panoramic view of villages and the mighty sea. The view alone puts Chapora Fort on everyone's list of places to visit in North Goa.
  • Shri Mahalaxmi Temple : If you are looking for a tourist attraction for spiritual tours while in North Goa, make sure to visit the Shri Mahalaxmi Temple. Located about 4 kilometers from Ponda, it is one of the most crucial religious shrines and a prominent Hindu pilgrimage point in Goa. The temple is dedicated to the deity Goddess Mahalaxmi, and besides devotees, thousands of casual tourists also visit it around the year. According to history, the current shrine was founded in 1866 following the destruction of the original temple by Portuguese attacks. The divine charm, peaceful ambience and traditional Konkani temple architecture of the Shri Mahalaxmi Temple are some of its main highlights. The temple is one of the main highlights of tourism in the region, and you can easily find it in the popular Goa packages.
  • Goa State Museum : The Goa State Museum, also called the State Archaeology Museum, is a well-known tourist attraction in Panaji for visitors interested in regional history. Records show that the museum is home to over 8,000 artefacts, ranging from things like ancient sculptures and manuscripts to anthropological objects and rare coins. It features fourteen galleries dedicated to preserving certain aspects of history, like Contemporary Art, Printing History, Sculpture Gallery, etc. It is a must-visit place for history buffs and individuals who want to learn more about Goa while it was under Portuguese colonial rule. Before visiting, tourists must know that the museum has temporarily been shifted to the Old Secretariat Building in the state due to ongoing renovations.
  • Vasco da Gama: This old town is an epitome of Goa's Portuguese heritage. Dotted with historical monuments, Vasco da Gama is to South Goa what Panjim is to the north. With bustling marketplaces and restaurants serving less touristy and more authentic Goan fare, Vasco da Gama is the complete package. During your Goa holiday in Vasco da Gama, you can also visit off-beat places such as Sahakari spice farms where they organically grow spices, fruits and herbs. Experience everything the town has to offer with suitable Goa packages featuring Vasco da Gama.
  • Dudhsagar Waterfalls:   Dudhsagar , which means ‘sea of milk’, is a gorgeous waterfall located on the Goa-Karnataka border. Surrounded by lush green forests, the waterfall emerges from the top of a crescent shaped valley, making the view of this place magical and mesmerizing. The whole scene presents itself as a beautiful canvas that will be firmly rooted in your memories forever. The sound of birds chirping, rustling trees and the rushing sound of water only enhance the beauty of this place. You can simply go with customisable Goa packages and add this site if it doesn’t come as standard. 
  • Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary: Located in the eastern part of South Goa, Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the must-visit places in South Goa . A paradise for naturalists and those looking for something different from the beaches and regular tourist spots in South Goa, this sanctuary is home to a wide range of flora and fauna, including Giant Squirrel, Great Pied Hornbills, Grey Headed Bulbul, Slender Loris, and an exciting range of mammals, butterflies, and birds. 
  • Three Kings Church:  While sightseeing in South Goa, make sure to check out the renowned Three Kings Church. The main reason behind its popularity has to do with the mysterious and haunting stories associated with the place. However, these are mostly rumours, and the beautiful church sitting on top of a small hill offers a more delightful picture than the stories suggest. Tourists looking for a spiritual and serene getaway in Goa other than beaches often make a trip to this church. Also, the view of the sea and the surrounding greenery offer a great setting that will help you relax your mind. If you are visiting in early January, make sure to check out the renowned Feast of Three Kings Chapel event held on January 6th every year. 
  • Cabo de Rama Fort : The Cabo de Rama Fort is another major highlight of South Goa sightseeing. It is a mediaeval hillfort and one of the oldest of its kind in the state. Even though it is mostly in ruins, it still stands tall to date with its incredible architecture and solid build. Located near the mouth of River Sal, the fort offers picturesque views of the shoreline and the ocean. It served under various rulers, with the last being the Portuguese, who converted it into a prison from a military bastion. Tourists like to visit the fort for its rich history, to watch the sunset and take memorable pictures. The church within the premises of the fort is still regularly used. A trip to this fort is a common inclusion in most popular Goa holiday packages.

Famous Foods in Goa

Goan fish curry, chicken cafreal.

Goa is blessed with a long coastline, which brings in an opportunity for fishing and an abundant supply of fish. This means fish curry features prominently on most menus in Goa. Fish curry isn't a blanket term or a one size fits all solution to cooking. With ample seafood like prawns, sharks, lobsters, crabs, pomfret, snapper, barramundi, clams, mackerels, mussels, and oysters come ample curries that are just as lip-smacking as the next. The common thread tying them all together is their use of fiery chilli, soothing creamy coconut, piquant spices like Triphala and souring agents like kokum. The combination of fish curry and rice essentially forms the staple food of Goa and can be called the traditional Goan meal. This tangy and spicy curry gives the perfect experience of Goa’s food traditions and culture. Add on a side of fried fish and prepare to be transported to culinary heaven.

Goa loves its pork and beef. Chicken isn't always the first choice of meat unless its Chicken Cafreal. Originating from Africa, this dish has been brought to Goa by the Portuguese. This is spicy chicken made from coriander, lime, green chillies, peppercorns and mint. Cooking this in the traditional Goan way gives it an additional smoky taste which provides a completely out-of-the-world experience.

Traditionally served during Christmas, Bebinca is one of the most enjoyed desserts of Goa. It is a multi-layered cake made with eggs, fresh coconut milk, sugar and pure ghee. Eaten hot or cold, this confection is laden with calories and love, as making it is no easy feat.

Chill at a shack at Anjuna beach

Live the aquatic life at baga beach, visit some amazing churches, feel blessed at shri bhagvati temple.

While on your Goa holiday, indulge in some scrumptious seafood and sip on a chilled beverage as you rub shoulders with people from all over the world, at the shacks at Anjuna beach . Take a stroll through the streets of Anjuna and Chapora and shop for some pretty souvenirs at the night markets or go to a beach party and dance until dawn at Anjuna beach. Take a walk on the white sandy beach and unwind during your Goa holidays.

Learn the art of scuba diving and swim alongside the beautiful creatures of the sea. Indulge in water sports like jet skiing, motorboat ride, banana boat ride, river cruise and dolphin rides to feed the adrenaline junkie in you. Calm your body and soul by taking an ayurvedic spa. Laze around at the beach, soak up the sun at Baga beach. This is the perfect activity for every Goa holiday.

Your vacation to Goa doesn't have to be just about fun in the sun.Seek some blessings at St. Cajetan Church in Velha Goa. Walk down the lane of Goa’s history at this beautiful monument. Know more about the old tales and stories by interacting with the locals. Check out some awe-inspired Italian paintings and the Corinthian columns at this domed church during your Goa trip.

Quaint city lots of easy walking to see heritage buildings, good restaurants & friendly locals. Eat at Viva near the Old Quarter Hostel, in a heritage home. A bit pricey but nice ambience & good Goan food. Also desserts at Cremeux!

Anjuna is big and it’s a walk for someone who doesn’t have...

Anjuna is big and it’s a walk for someone who doesn’t have any form of transport. The beach is not worth coming for if you’re traveling this far just to experience a nice beach. Since this is part of Goa, the local government with the help of the private sector should address the issue of these stray dogs which have controlled the streets of the town. Not just Anjuna but all the beaches of Goa.

The property is decent.

The property is decent. But I think when you are on a special vacation property is only a small part of your experience, especially in Goa. I stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days with my wife. The staff here has a bad attitude. We booked through The owner kept pushing us to pay advance and after we did she was not available to answer our queries. Apparently, she's busy. When we arrived she gave us an alternate no. and these guys started arguing on the phone itself. Here for most of the things you ask for, the answer will be "no". You are suppose to clean your room. They'll give you a soap and towel only if you ask, and would take 2 hrs for it. But meanwhile, they'll do chitchat with foreigner guests. They promised hot water but there was none! We asked for it and waited for half an hour to finally make peace with cold shower, all 3 days we stayed there. They won't serve you breakfast items in lunch or with evening tea. I asked for toast and butter they said no, eventually served me "toast and butter with exotic cheese on the side". The property and the quality of food was good, but we could not enjoy it because of the disappointing service from the staff. The most disappointing thing was their good and pleasant behaviour ONLY with the foreign guests. Their coordinator told us on the day of checkout that we should have contacted him about the hot water problem. In case we visit agonda next time we would definitely look for a place with a better service on such a beautiful beach!

Clean beach with a relatively better crowd than rest of Goa.

Clean beach with a relatively better crowd than rest of Goa. A beautiful ocean , you can go for a dip for a longer length as the sea is much calmer. Beautiful sunset! Amazing beach shacks and restaurants esp Presley's, cafe inn, brendons , royal touch, ciarans.

Best place to unwind in Goa if you have calmness and solitude in mind. Don't miss Dropadi for awesome food. Can give the boating option a skip. Just relax on the beach.

Palolem is a charming town, loads of places to eat on the...

Palolem is a charming town, loads of places to eat on the beach for luxury or off the beach for a bit more of a budget. Great seafood. The market area is nice, there are loads of shops with a charming beauty salon (maybe one of the only ones you can find in south Goa!!) with lovely ladies. The prices of things are more expensive than other parts of India, but generally Goa is more expensive. WARNING ⚠️ Avoid the shop/shack with a guy, a sewing machine and 'changing room' (thin curtain and mirror) at the back of his shop. He is a creepy mother fkr and I wouldn't step in his shop. He's very short with paler skin and a Moustache (this was in March 2018) and took advantage of his 'changing room' facilities as some kind of peep show! its a shame because I liked the clothes in his shop!! There is a lovely cafe called 'Little world' that do very stylish veggie and vegan breakfast/brunches and special juices and lassies. The atmosphere is peaceful in there and although it's slightly more expensive than others, the staff are lovely and you can ask for custom made juices depending on your energy or health. They also have the best oil perfumes I found in Palolem. Pure and not diluted just ask behind the counter ;) There's a another place called 'Brown Bread' on the main road that do a Cheaper but decent breakfast/brunch, less luxurious but tastey and good if you're on a budget.

It's Beaches are beautiful.

It's Beaches are beautiful. Friendly people around. Total 100 percent Goan restaurants around. Try Johnny and Roger .they both had amazing in food . And it was amazing. You could either jus lazy in the beach and have few beers or just walk around the coastal area .

One of the must visit place in Goa.

One of the must visit place in Goa. This is heaven for peace lovers and away from the crowd. You can spend maximum time in the beach after having your dinner in the Shacks. Rainbow restaurant at Morjim served good food at reasonable price.

Palolem is a small village but not anything like remote.

Palolem is a small village but not anything like remote. It has a small market where you can get beachwear, slippers, food, booze, handicraft souvenirs etc. Palolem is away from the tourist crowd of North Goa. A traveller should make it a base camp and then explore nearby areas such as beaches further down south, Cabo de Rama, and even Panjim.

Very crowded place has lost the charm of Goa.

Very crowded place has lost the charm of Goa...would suggest candolom nearby much more nice and cleaner place to stay with better hotels.

Hotel is nicely located close to many restaurants and also on walking distance to the beach.

She really keeps the hotel together.

Goa Tourism Package 2024

Goa tourism overview (2023).

The popularity of Goa tourism is not a recent phenomenon. Goa has been everyone’s favourite beach destination for as long as we can remember! Tourism in Goa  is naturally driven by its gorgeous coastline in Western India along with the never-ending beaches, pristine natural wonders, stunning architecture, diverse culinary treats and pulsating nightlife. These are only a few of the reasons contributing to the steady popularity of Goa tourism packages . Goa is the smallest state in the country and has its own unique philosophy of Susegad which translates into a happily laidback and blissful state of mind. Nestled within the Konkan region, Goa covers only 3,702 kilometres and is also known for its warm and friendly locals. Not for nothing has it been a key inclusion in multiple India tours over the years.

Goa tourism also gives travellers an opportunity to experience the vibrant culture of the state at different times of the year, including fabulous Christmas and New Year celebrations, music festivals, the Goa Carnival and many others. Of course, any mention of Goa tourism  is incomplete without discussing the delicious food on offer across the beach restaurants, shacks, bars, pubs, cafes and multiple nightlife joints. Goa has been under the Portuguese for close to 450 years and this influence is beautifully visible through the amazing churches and forts across the state. The Latin Quarters and the charming houses are only a trailer into what Goa has to offer architecturally.

Goa tourism offers amazing landmarks and activities that can be explored in two major divisions, namely North Goa and South Goa. The former has been a cornerstone of tourism in Goa for decades now. North Goa is truly the vibrant hub of the state with its famous beaches, beach shacks, clubs, flea markets, museums and a lot more. There are more tourist places in Goa in its Northern half. On the other hand, South Goa, with its more laidback vibe and premier resorts, is steadily making its way into contemporary Goa tourism packages . This is a more serene part of Goa, offering quieter beaches, wellness experiences and a lot more. Here’s taking a look at the history of Goa before going through the wonders of Goa tourism across both its Northern and Southern halves.

History of Goa

Goa has a rich history of its own. Here are some key points regarding its evolution over the years:

  • Goa was initially built at the southernmost tip of the island as a city which was mentioned in the Puranas and other inscriptions as Govapuri , Gove and even Gomant .
  • The Kadamba Dynasty ruled from the 2 nd century CE till 1312 and then Muslim rulers conquered it from 1312-1367. It became a part of the Vijayanagar Kingdom and then came into the Brahmani Sultanate who founded Old Goa in 1440 on this island.
  • Goa was subsequently controlled by the Bijapur King Yusuf Adil Khan from 1482. Afonso de Albuquerque conquered it in 1510. He recaptured the city after a war with the King and appointed Timoja as its Governor.
  • Goa was once the Portuguese Empire’s Asian capital, receiving similar privileges as the city of Lisbon, becoming prosperous from 1575 to 1600. The Dutch blockaded the city in 1603 and again in 1639, while the Marathas attacked it in 1739.
  • The Government seat was shifted to Mormugao and then to Panjim in 1759. The British temporarily occupied Goa in 1809 and there were subsequently Governor’s powers exercised by the Portuguese prince Affonso Henriques duque de Oporto from 1896.
  • Post independence, there was pressure on Portugal to surrender Goa to India. Nationalists set up a new administration around 1954 while there were Satyagraha protests as well in 1955.
  • Indian troops then occupied Goa, Daman and Diu in 1961. All three territories then became a part of India.
  • Goa attained statehood in 1987.

Why we love Goa...

Cola Beach in Goa

1. A gentle introduction to India...

For a wonderfully hot winter sun holiday and a gentle introduction to the Indian sub-continent, a holiday to Goa is hard to beat. The exotic flavours of India are mixed with the familiar feel of European destinations, giving a unique and memorable Goa package holiday experience.

2. A vibrant culture and rich history...

Having been a Portuguese colony for over 400 years, there is a unique and distinct culture to discover during Goa holidays, blending the ancient traditions of India with colonial influences from the Portuguese. All over the state you will find Hindu and Christian architecture side by side, from intricate Hindu temples and whitewashed churches to colourful Portuguese Heritage homes in soft pistachio and lemon.

3. Did we mention the beaches?

This is where India meets the Arabian Sea, and Goa’s coastline is blessed with some of the most striking beaches. For such a small state, it offers an impressive array of beach resorts. Bustling golden shores in the north are backed by colourful makeshift beach shacks, serving everything from fresh and tasty street food and refreshments to handmade souvenirs. Moving to the south, secluded powder-white sands are often lined by plush palm trees which stretch all the way along the coast. We're confident that for beach lovers, Goa package holidays have plenty to offer.

4. The food, ah, the food...

Goan cuisine is a fantastic fusion of Indian and Portuguese flavours, is distinct to this region and one of the most alluring charms of Goa holidays. The likes of rich creamy coconut milk is infused with aromatic herbs and fresh spices and often served with locally caught fish and fluffy white rice. Make sure you try the most popular dish, a traditional Goan fish curry.

A Complete 7-day Itinerary and Guide to Goa for First Timers

This guide to Goa is perfect for those of you planning to travel there for the first time, as it talks about the best time to visit, how to reach Goa, popular beaches in North and South Goa, where to stay for your first visit, and how to get around. Also included is Goa itinerary for 7 days.

Goa is a tropical paradise with endless white and golden-sand beaches lined with swaying palm trees. This small state in the southwestern region of India is unlike any other, with its laid-back culture balanced by its thriving nightlife. But that’s not all there is to Goa. It is a land of soothing bike rides, fascinating world heritage sites, plush resorts, friendly hostels, delectable seafood, and various forms of spiritual practices. It is definitely the most popular destination in India amongst Indian and international travellers (after the Taj Mahal, of course), as it has something for everyone.

Guide to Goa For First Timers

What is the best time to visit goa.

pasture, low-land, buffaloes, Monsoon may not be the best time to visit Goa due to flooding

March-May : These are the summer months when Goa gets unbearably muggy, with temperatures touching 40ºC (104ºF).

June – September : During these monsoon months, Goa becomes lush green. It is relatively quieter than other months. Most shacks are temporary structures that are dismantled during this period and water sports aren’t going on. But this is a charming time in Goa overall, with plenty of restaurants and activities to keep you entertained.

November–February : Winter is the peak season here. Goa, being a coastal area, is balmy while the inland parts of the country go through typical winter temperatures. The sun is always out and the cool sea breeze blows through from time to time. December is the busiest month as Goa hosts the Annual Sunburn Music Festival, which attracts people from all over. Plus, people flock in to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s holidays at this party destination.

Verdict: For your first time in Goa, you should visit during the season, Mid-October to Mid-March , so that you can see all that Goa has to offer. The shacks will be open, beach stays will be available in South Goa and the weather will be pleasant. However, the prices will be higher than any other time of the year.

How to reach Goa?

How to reach Goa? Have a fun time in a train

Goa’s international airport is situated at Dabolim, near Vasco Da Gama, and there is also a new airport in North Goa, Manohar International Airport. You can land at either of these and hire a taxi to your hotel/hostel.

While most cities in India have an organised cab service like Uber and Ola, Goa has  GoaMiles  ( now also an app) that can pass for Goa’s very own Uber. We’ve used it a few times and found cabs at a good rate. You can also opt for the taxis lined up on the road outside the airport (be prepared to bargain and ensure to set prices before the start of the trip) or prepaid taxi stands at airports that have a set price. You can always ask at your accommodation if they provide airport transfers but these might turn out to be more expensive.

Local buses in Goa are significantly cheaper but also very inconvenient, as you would have to change multiple vehicles to get to your destination in Goa. Use the local bus only if you’re on a super low budget.

Bus, Cab and Car

You can also opt to reach Goa by overnight bus or cab from major cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad in India. If travelling by bus, Mapusa would be your de-boarding point for North Goa , Panjim for Central , and Margao/Canacona for South .

You can book your bus via Redbus .

We’ve driven it down from Pune a few times now and once from Hyderabad. The road is full of potholes as you get closer to Goa. But you’ll cross ghats and waterfalls. It is beautiful!

Goa is also well connected by train to the rest of India. The main train stations are Vasco da Gama (central), Margao (south) and Thivim (north) .

Which area to stay in Goa?

A fairly empty Baga Beach - One of the popular beaches in North Goa

Goa is divided into North and South Goa, with its capital, Panaji (popularly known as Panjim), located around the centre. For your first time in Goa, it can be confusing to decide where to stay, as different corners of the state offer different experiences. In this itinerary, you’ll be staying in both North Goa and South Goa .

Baga, Calangute, Candolim or Anjuna : This is a good option for your first time in Goa, as the area is very central, so all places to see would be close to you.

However, please note that these beaches aren’t best, as they’re the most popular in Goa. Every Tom Dick and Harry visit these beaches so the crowd is also such. However, your purpose of staying around this area is different. You’re here to enjoy the water sports, the parties, the food and maybe even shop a little.

A little further north is Anjuna. While it is not the best location to stay for this itinerary, this area has come up a lot in the past few years, so you’ll find a lot of  must-visit restaurants in Goa  around this area.

Stay Options:

Casa Cenica (2BHK in Arpora) Onastay  (2BHK in Candolim) Casa De Mezzanine (Beautiful 1BHK in Arpora) Jade by CasaFlip (2BHK in Anjuna) Beach Villa With Private pool (luxury) Canary By CasaFlip (1BHK in Anjuna).

Palolem or Agonda: For your first trip to South Goa, you should stay at one of these two beaches and explore other beaches nearby. These beaches have restaurants but yet maintain a relaxed vibe so you can enjoy time on the beach. Remember that you should only stay in South Goa beaches beach from October to March as the huts and shacks are mostly dismantled before the monsoons and built back up when the monsoons get over. Click to  know more about South Goa Beaches .

Stay Options: Jardim-a-Mar (Agonda Beach- I’ve stayed here twice) Simrose (Agonda Beach – this one is often open all-year round) Agonda Serenity Beach Villa (has a jacuzzi on porch at Agonda Beach) Agonda Island View (Agonda Beach) BunkNBrew (hostel in Palolem)

How to get around Goa?

Palolem Beach - One of the popular beaches in South Goa

Taxis are expensive in Goa and not ideal for getting around and sightseeing. Buses are quite cheap but again, inconvenient. Instead, opt for a scooter or motorbike for the duration of your stay in Goa. There is no better way to get around, as it will give you the utmost freedom. The best bit is that it is inexpensive at about Rs. 500–800 a day, depending on the season (off-season or peak), type of bike (scooters like Honda Activa, low-end bikes like Bajaj Pulsar or high-end ones, like Royal Enfield) and your haggling skills.

If you don’t want to ride a bike or moped, you can hire a car . Most offer stick shifts so if you don’t know how to drive these, finding an automatic may not be easy. However, we have always managed to find one and so should you. Economy cars usually cost about Rs. 1000–1200 per day but may go up depending on the season.

You can get a bike or car on hire easily by talking to your accommodation host or hotel.

The perfect 1 week Goa Itinerary: North and South Goa

The Goa experience is different for every individual depending on their style of travel. It’s never a one size fits all because there is simply so much to see and do. We have stayed in Goa for 2 months and have yet not seen it all. Your personalised Goa itinerary would largely depend on what you enjoy – nature, culture, beaches, partying, etc. In this 7-day Goa itinerary, we’ve tried to include a bit of everything so you can get a true feel of the different sides of Goa and decide for yourself which aspect of Goa you enjoy the most!

Day 1-2 North Goa – Watersports, Shopping, Partying

Stay near the Baga Beach/ Arpora area. Despite being crowded, it is close to a lot of North Goa tourist spots you’ll be visiting. And also, hire a scooty, bike or car. You’ll need it to get around. Prior reservations for restaurants are needed!

Day 1: Beach, Water sports, Party

Visit Baga Beach during your first time in Goa

  • Reach Goa and check into your hotel or Airbnb
  • Rent a vehicle
  • Calangute Beach for lunch at Pousada by the Beach
  • Water sports and sunset at Baga Beach
  • At night go partying at Hammerz (popular music) in the Baga Area or Las Olas (Bollywood music) at Baga Beach. Or both as they’re close by! Start at Hammerz and end at Las Olas.

Day 2: Cliffside Restaurants, Fort, Sundowner, Party

You don’t need to do all of these things mentioned below. Select the ones you wish to do based on your preferences and how much time you have. I’d recommend not partying till late this night so you can be fresh to explore Goa the next morning.

Antares View Goa

  • Wake up late this day since you’ve partied the previous night
  • Lunch:   Titlie OR Antares OR Casa Playa at Little Vagator or Felix OR Artjuna or Vinayak at Anjuna.
  • Shop: Now go shop at Anjuna Flea Market!
  • Explore Chapora Fort (The movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ was shot here so expect it to be crowded)
  • Stay for sunset or go for a sundowner to Thalassa closeby
  • Dinner at Ida in Vagator
  • Party at one of the following – Soro (Siolim) or Romeo Lane (Little Vagator).

Day 3-4: North Goa – Culture, Heritage and Nature

Day 3: culture and heritage.

Head for a day trip to Panjim and Old Goa . On this day, you’ll get a good glimpse of Portuguese influence on Goan heritage.

Basilica of Bom Jesus

Old Goa Churches : Start with Old Goa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and see the following churches in this order:

  • St. Augustine Church Ruins
  • Basilica of Bom Jesus (the most renowned)
  • Convent of Santa Monica and The Museum of Christian Art (optional but good)
  • Se Cathedral
  • Church of St. Cajetan
  • Viceroy’s Arch
  • Our Lady of Mount Chapel (optional- for panoramic views of the Panjim area)

Ruins of the Chuch of St. Augustine is a fantastic spot to add to your Goa itinerary

Going on a tour will help you make the most of your time and understand the significance of Old Goa and its churches. It is highly recommended. We’ve taken several tours by this company and loved all of them.

Lunch : Head for either a local Goan lunch at Kokni Kanteen or Cafe Al Fresco By Cantina Bodeg a for continental food. Both are close to your next stop.

Fontainhas : After lunch, take a walk in Fontainhas, Asia’s largest Latin Quarter, which has lanes lined with houses built in the colonial style and painted in bright shades of red, yellow, green, and blue. We highly recommend seeing this area on a Latin Quarter walking tour; only then will you truly be able to appreciate the history and architecture. However, if you don’t wish to take a tour, start your walk at Maruti Mandir or Phoenix Springs, ending at the Church of Immaculate Conception. See the colourful houses, click a lot of photos at the colourful wall of Old Quarter Hostel, buy some Azulejo tile décor at Velha Goa Galleria, admire the white façade of St. Sebastian Chapel, and have some bebinca (Goan Dessert) at Confeitaria 31 De Janeiro .

tourism offers in goa

Evening: Get drinks and small bites at Antonio@31 or head for a full-fledged dinner at Black Sheep Bistro . Please check the prices of these restaurants beforehand to see if they fit your budget and make reservations beforehand. You could also go for a fun Pub Crawl instead.

Night: Later you could head to a Deltin Royale Casino (buy tickets online for the best deals) OR go back home to rest for an early morning the next day.

Book Tours in Goa

Day 4: Nature and Heritage

Chorao Island and the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary : Do this either on a tour or go by yourself. You’ll have to take a ferry from Ribandar. Don’t miss the famous Mangrove Broadwalk. It is beautiful. We haven’t been here yet but can’t wait to go!

Lunch: Lazy Goose , Nerul. Reserve the table with the lake view if you can.

Depending on the time you start the day, see one/two of the following attractions. Choose one museum and one fort:

  • Houses of Goa Museum (do this only after a walking tour of Fontainhas; otherwise, nothing will make any sense) OR Museum of Goa (modern art tinged in Goan history).
  • Aguada Fort (great for sunsets but crowded) OR Reis Magos Fort (relatively less known and beautiful).

Reis Magos Fort is a hidden gem in North Goa.

Have dinner in the Candolim, Calangute, or Baga area. There are plenty of good restaurants.

A Reverie : Fine Dining Toro Toro : Continental/Goan Yazu – Pan Asian Beach Club: Asian

Day 5-6: South Goa – Beaches and relaxation

Day 5: spice plantations, iconic restaurants, relaxation.

Now, head to South Goa. Stay at Agonda or Palolem Beach- both are fantastic beaches for your first time in Goa.

But on your way, you have the option of making a few stops.

Visit Spice Plantations- A top suggestion for our Goa Travel Guide Blog

  • Sahakari Spice Plantation: Wonder why the Portuguese were so fascinated by Goa? The answer lies in the tantalising smell and flavours of spices like Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Allspice, Cumin, etc. See how these spices grow and learn about them. End with a local buffet lunch at the plantation. I found the experience very interesting and learned a lot. You can buy the ticket on reaching there.
  • Iconic Restaurants: If you’re not in the mood for the above, stop at Martin’s Corner or Fisherman’s Wharf for lunch. They are both very renowned.

Check into your hotel and use this day to do nothing and just relax on the beach, see the sunset, etc. Otherwise, you could also choose to head to Sundowner Palolem (Bar) for a sundowner!

Day 6: Beaches and Viewpoints

Today is going to be a long day of beach hopping.

Cola Beach: Start your day at Cola Beach. It’s a bit of a hike down to the beach. You can even take the jeep to the beach to save time and effort but it’ll cost a bit. Cola Beach is famous for its lagoon, where you can swim and kayak. You can have lunch here before heading to your next stop.

Kakolem Beach: This beach has a waterfall. Yes, you read that right. ( you can skip this beach if you’re running short on time or want to take it a bit slow).

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Modi & Trisha – Travel Couple (@trywanderingmore)

Cabo De Rama Fort and Cabo De Rama Viewpoint for sunset . Both are gorgeous spots with fantastic views – you’ll love the sunset here. You can also choose to have a meal and drink at the Cape Goa restaurant near the viewpoint before heading back to your hotel.

Day 7: Butterfly Beach and Palolem/Agonda Beach

Agonda Beach in South Goa

  • Butterfly Beach : It’s a beautiful secluded beach. You can hike it to the beach or go via boat but I’ll suggest going as early as possible to avoid crowds.
  • Palolem/Agonda Beach : For lunch head to either of these beaches that you’re not staying at. At Palolem, you can have lunch at Dropadi by the beach and at Treetop Tava or Zest (vegan cafe) at Agonda. Walk around the beach later afterwards.

Depart for home this evening or the next morning!

But do not forget to book your tours in goa before you get there!

Tips to Stay Safe in Goa

This guide to Goa would be incomplete if I didn’t mention tips to stay safe there. Goa is really welcoming and local-friendly. But because it is a  thriving party location and has people travelling from all over, you should take care of the following, especially if you’re a woman.

  • Don’t hitchhike.
  • If you’re a woman travelling solo, preferably rent a car. If you’re a woman travelling in a group, bikes will do. 
  • Always get a video of the vehicle hired to avoid being ripped off on returning the vehicle.
  • Don’t go out with people you don’t know and never go to parties alone.
  • Watch your drink.
  • Try to stay vigilant, even when drunk.
  • Some Indian men can assume friendliness as flirting. 
  • Be cautious of theft at your accommodation. Huts can easily be broken into.
  • Drugs are available abundantly in Goa. Avoid getting stuck in the middle of a drug racket. 
  • Avoid drunk driving. It is being monitored by the police more strictly than before.

Don’t let these scare you. I (Trisha) have  travelled solo to Goa  and also with my girlfriends and had an absolutely fantastic time. Most of these tips should be adhered to anywhere in the world. Here is a complete list of  ways to stay safe while travelling alone .

Wrapping up

Goa is a place that you can never get enough of. With each visit, you discover something new – a secret beach, a quaint café, a shack with amazing music, a magnificent fort, and so on. We have visited Goa about five times for short periods – with different people, as different people in different phases of our lives, or wanting something different from our trip- and Goa has never let us down. We are sure you will be taken by the charm of Goa and not want to leave just like the hippies in their heydays. Hope you found this Goa Travel Blog useful and have an amazing first trip to Goa.

15 Top-Rated Attractions and Places to Visit in Goa

Written by Joni Sweet Updated Mar 6, 2023

With golden-sand beaches, tangled palm trees touching the sky, and a relaxed atmosphere, Goa stands in stark contrast from the other bustling urban destinations in India. Even just a short visit to this beach paradise feels like a vacation within a vacation. The beauty and serenity of Goa will rejuvenate you, while its robust calendar of events and activities give you plenty of things do to during your free time.

Popular coastal hot spots, like Colva Beach and Palolem Beach , draw tourists to Goa from around the world. But beaches are just the beginning of what makes Goa one of the most beloved places to visit in India. The destination also has unique Portuguese-influenced cuisine , historical churches and temples , vibrant wildlife , and fascinating spice farms . No matter how long you spend in Goa, you'll wish you had a few extra days to explore.

For more ideas to help plan your trip to India, see our list of the top tourist attractions in Goa.

Palolem Beach

Beaches play a starring role among the attractions in Goa, contributing to why it's one of the best places to visit in India .

Nearly every tourist who visits the area spends a day at Palolem Beach , a crescent-shaped stretch of white sand that overlooks the Arabian Sea in south Goa. While simply hanging out and soaking up the scenery is a perfect way to enjoy this beautiful area, Palolem Beach also offers an array of activities to fill your time. Choose from kayaking , yoga classes , dolphin-sightseeing trips, and swimming . You can also spend the night in one of Palolem's rustic coco huts , which are erected at the start of the high season.

Colva Beach is another one of the most famous beaches in Goa , especially among Indian tourists. It has swaying palms and a broad stretch of bronze sand, where you'll occasionally see herds of cows sunbathing next to tourists. You can rent Jet Skis , hop on a thrilling banana boat ride , and get a bird's-eye view of the beach on a parasailing adventure.

Homestay accommodations in the area will give you an authentic local-style experience – plus easy access to Colva Beach.

Sunset at Utorda Beach

While known for their spectacular scenery, the popular beaches in Goa tend to get crowded during high season, leaving some travelers eager for a quieter natural escape. Fortunately, Goa brims with undiscovered beach attractions and things to do that give you some distance from the throngs of tourists while still treating you to glorious sand and surf.

One of the best hidden gems in Goa is Butterfly Beach. It has a curving expanse of sand flanked by boulders that create a postcard-worthy cove, brimming with butterflies and blossoms. It's also a great spot to watch dolphins swim in the distance.

You'll need to embark on a boat ride from Palolem Beach or Agonda Beach, or tackle a challenging forest hike, to reach Butterfly Beach – but the obstacles to getting here help to thin out the crowds. You might even have the place to yourself.

While more developed than Butterfly Beach, Utorda Beach is another stunning getaway from the more crowded beaches around Goa. It features clean, blue water; silky sand; and a few small beach shacks. Look closely as you wade in the water, and you may spot some small starfish .

Nutmeg, mace, and curry leaf, Tanshikar Spice Farm, Goa

South India has been known for its abundance of spices, like black pepper, cardamom, and cloves, for centuries. In fact, these natural flavorings were a major appeal for Portuguese traders who came to Goa hundreds of years ago.

Tourists can see what the local spice scene is all about by touring Tanshikar's Working Spice Farm & Ecological Rest House . This agritourism attraction grows seven different spices: pepper, vanilla, nutmeg, turmeric, cardamom, and chili, using totally organic farming methods.

Tours of the farm, often led by its owner, will give you an in-depth understanding of these flavor-charged crops and a chance to see some of the other products, like betelnut, coffee beans, pineapple, and banana, grown on the premises. Tanshikar's also keeps bees and produces its own all-natural honey.

Spice farm tours aren't the only fun thing to do at Tanshikar's. Guests can also take a vegetarian cooking class , visit a bubbly lake , trek to Mainapi Waterfall, and train to become a yoga teacher. It's an attraction that has something for everyone.

Address: Netravali, near Smriti Yoga, Sanguem, Goa

Goan coconut fish curry

Food is a major attraction in Goa. This part of India has a distinctive cuisine that blends Portuguese and Goan flavors, setting it apart from all the other food around India. Expect fiery flavors, fresh-caught seafood, and an abundance of coconut in the dishes.

You can't leave Goa without trying its signature dish, vindaloo, a super-hot meat curry made with palm vinegar and dried red chili peppers. Hospedaria Venite in the capital of Goa, Panaji , wows tourists with its mouthwatering vindaloo. Dominick, a Benaulim Beach mainstay, is another favorite spot for vindaloo – plus it offers front-row seats for world-class sunsets.

Another Goan specialty is xacuti, a rich curry with poppy seeds, chili, and coconut. Try it at Souza Lobo , a beachfront restaurant in Calangute , or Fat Fish , a well-trafficked spot in Baga.

Tourists hankering for some fresh seafood are spoiled for choice around Goa. Zeebop , on Utorda Beach , offers delightful fish curry, prawn stew, and mackerel doused with spicy red sauce.

You also can't go wrong with dinner at Copperleaf. The upscale restaurant in Porvorim has a fish thali that you'll be dreaming about long after you've finished.

Basilica de Bom Jesus

While many tourists visit Goa for the beaches, countless others consider the trip to be a pilgrimage to important religious sites, like the Basilica de Bom Jesus.

This Old Goa attraction dates back to the late 16th century and contains the remains of the St. Francis Xavier . The "Apostle of the Indies" co-founded the Society of Jesus religious order with friend St. Ignatius Loyola and spearheaded an extensive mission in India. The basilica has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.

The modest yet imposing structure is a mix of Doric, Corinthian, and Baroque style with intricate carvings. Interestingly, the building was stripped of its lime plaster in the mid-20th century, making it the only church in Goa without plaster. The Basilica de Bom Jesus has since become worn by monsoons.

You can tour the church on your own, or hire one of the independent guides near the entrance for a small fee. Inside, you can see huge ornamental screens, along with the body of the resident saint in a casket that was once covered in precious stones. It's a compelling place that will transport you back in time.

Every year, the Feast of St. Francis Xavier draws big crowds to this church in late November and early December. It kicks off with a nine-day novena and open-air masses before concluding with the major holiday on Dec. 3.

Address: Old Goa Road, Bainguinim, Goa

Dudhsagar Falls

Aquatic adventures go beyond the beach in Goa. The state is also home to Dudhsagar Falls, a spectacular four-tiered waterfall that towers some 310 meters above the earth. It's one of India's tallest waterfalls and a perpetually popular attraction for day trips around Goa and Karnataka .

To reach the falls, you'll need to make your way to the village of Colem by taxi or train. Depending on which train route you take, you may get a glimpse of Dudhsagar Falls along the way. Then, you'll hop aboard a shared jeep through the jungle, passing Devil's Canyon along the way. Around 45 minutes later, you'll scurry over some boulders to finally reach the falls.

The best time to visit Dudhsagar Falls is right after the monsoon , when the water is gushing. Tourists who wish to take a dip can rent a life jacket from vendors at the attraction.

Hot tip: Only 300 jeeps are allowed to enter Dudhsagar Falls every day, although tour operators have been requesting to increase the capacity during high season. Make reservations in advance, or prepare to wait in long lines if you wish to visit.

Anjuna Market

Goa is home to a ton of markets, but none offer the liveliness or selection of products found at Anjuna Market. For roughly 50 years, hundreds of vendors have been setting up shop on Anjuna Beach every Wednesday to tempt free-spirited travelers with hippy-inspired trinkets and souvenirs.

Ornate textiles, woven bikinis, sculptures of deities, dreamcatchers, hammocks, magnets, t-shirts with sassy slogans, beaded jewelry, toys – you name it, you can probably buy it here.

But even if you don't want to shop, you should still make a point to visit Anjuna Market for the sightseeing. The flea market is a swirling array of colorful wares, salespeople driving hard bargains, big bags of fresh spices, and street food galore. The vibe alone is one of the reasons why Anjuna Market is one of the top places to visit in Goa.

Address: 10 St. Michael's Vaddo South, Anjuna, Goa

Its perfectly symmetrical Portuguese Baroque architecture is a sight to behold. At night, twinkle lights make the church look like something out of a fairy tale.

While not ornate, the church's interior boasts bright, colorful decorations. Tourists can see the elegant main altar (dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus) and gilded pillars with elaborate carvings. Vines of blue and white blossoms often adorn parts of the vaulted ceiling around various holidays.

The structure is adorned with intricate carvings of the Hindu gods Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma.

Cannon at Reis Magos Fort

It is from here that the water of the Dudhsagar Falls starts flowing westwards to join and be a part of the mighty Arabian Sea. The entire landmark in the backdrop of the falls is covered with a vastly stretched forest cover. This is how the Dudhsagar Falls form a part of Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary.

Catherine was known to be a spiritual pathfinder and raise her voice against the oppression of the Christians under the rule of Roman emperor Maxentius. She was so strong and logical with her arguments that the king himself was incapable of countering them and has a then he formed a committee of 50 philosophers to debate her ideas.However, even the assembly conceded defeat in front of her and confessed Christianity as their belief.

6 travel companies that will show you the ‘real’ Goa

  • 6 travel companies that will show you the ‘real’ Goa

Many conscientious travellers are giving Goa a wide berth as the state is unfortunately seen by many only as a party capital or a pure beach getaway. That is far from the truth. A number of Goans are putting their heart and soul into showcasing the cultural riches and natural wealth of the state, so that guests don’t just go to the many shacks on Goa’s beautiful beaches but also get to see and experience how Goans live.

Here are six experiential travel companies that are offering thoughtfully designed and thought provoking tours in the state that showcase more than just sun, sea and sand: 

1. The Local Beat

tourism offers in goa

The Local Beat is a “by appointment only” local adventures company full of happily unhurried loafs, picnics and pasois (leisure walks) into the old world charm of Goa in private groups. There could be a lunch in a grand old Goan home, you could participate in the Church feast in a village, go fishing in a creek, take part in a feni trail, learn to jive like a Goan while being serenaded by a live band—the possibilities are endless!  The tours stay clear of the more touristy beaches and take guests to the hinterlands to not just experience the natural beauty and the state’s history and heritage, but also have an immersive experience of local culture through taking part in local games and enjoying intimate concerts put together by local musicians and, of course, feasting on local food and drink. The focus is on sights and stories of the lesser known Goa by natives; you will not find them in blogs or books. Their food tours, tavern tours and festival tours are all very interesting.


2. Make It Happen

tourism offers in goa

Make It Happen’s unique collaborative approach connects travellers with local communities and experiences, aimed at transforming the general cliched perspectives about Goa while also providing livelihood opportunities to local community members. The outfit specialises in curated heritage trails and cultural experiences conducted by local presenters. Their insightful walking tours in Goa, such as the Fontainhas Heritage Walk, Chronicles and Echoes of Divar and the Old Goa Heritage Walk, offer an in-depth exploration of heritage streets and locales that provide a unique perspective to travellers. The highlight of the Fontainhas Heritage Walk, for instance, is a visit to the house of a renowned musician who serenades visitors in Latin, Konkani and the soulful Fado (a Portuguese style of music).

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is a Pa. tourist attraction, but you can actually spend the night at Lynn Hall

Two Florida men purchased Lynn Hall in 2017 for $250,000 and have since spent $1 million on its restoration.

Lynn Hall, built by Walter J. Hall, is an example of organic modernism in Port Allegany in McKean County, Pa. Hall built Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house in southwestern Pa.

Fallingwater, the Frank Lloyd Wright marvel that floats above a waterfall in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, might be the most iconic house in America.

The man who handcrafted Wright’s stone, glass, and concrete design in 1936 began building his own organic modernism gem — Lynn Hall — a year earlier, 200 miles north, in McKean County.

Fallingwater, a national historic landmark and tourist attraction above the waters of Bear Run, only offers tours, but visitors can spend the night at Lynn Hall thanks to owners Rick Sparkes and Adam Grant. The determined dreamers from Florida found the abandoned and dilapidated building online, visited, and purchased the property in 2017 for $250,000.

They’ve since dropped over $1 million into its restoration.

“It just had a magical feel to it,” Grant said. “We couldn’t believe no one was saving it.”

According to author Ed Byers, who wrote about Lynn Hall for the Pennsylvania Wilds tourism website, Walter J. Hall was already building his project when Wright was asked to design a home for a Pittsburgh businessman. Hall, a fan of Wright’s work, envisioned Lynn Hall as a rest stop on scenic Route 6, featuring hotel rooms, a restaurant, a dance hall, a gas station, and housing and office space for his family.

Wright, according to Lynn Hall’s website, discovered Hall’s “innovative use of poured concrete and mosaic stonework” and asked him to join the Fallingwater team at Bear Run. According to Byers, Hall put a pause on Lynn Hall to help construct Fallingwater, and he and the famous architect often butted heads.

“Walter’s penchant for ‘artistic license’ and making changes ‘on the fly’ in Wright’s absence drove Wright mad,” Byers wrote.

While Byers wrote about a “controversy” between Fallingwater and Lynn Hall regarding which piece of organic modernism came first in Pennsylvania, Sparkes and Grant say the two properties get along just fine. The team at Fallingwater, Grant said, was instrumental in helping Lynn Hall land on the National Register of Historic Places.

“The folks at Fallingwater very much understand the importance of Lynn Hall,” Grant said. “It’s all part of a movement beyond one or two examples.”

Sparkes and Grant, in researching Hall, found that his son, Raymond Viner Hall, helped usher in an era of “Allegheny Modernism,” designing and building approximately 120 Usonian homes, inspired by Wright, and 27 schools and public buildings in the region.

“They’re little-known masterpieces,” Sparkes said.

Lynn Hall is on Airbnb, with two accommodations: the Usonian Cottage and the Architects Suite . It’s located in Port Allegany, approximately 290 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

Tesla reaches deals in China on self-driving cars

By Keith Bradsher and Jack Ewing / New York Times

BEIJING >> Tesla has concluded a series of arrangements with regulators and a Chinese artificial intelligence company during a quick trip to Beijing on Sunday and Monday by Elon Musk, the carmaker’s CEO, potentially clearing the way for the company to offer its most advanced self-driving software on cars in China.

Tesla had faced a couple hurdles to offering the latest level of autonomous driving, which it calls supervised “Full Self-Driving.” It has needed approval from Chinese regulators, who questioned whether the company took adequate precautions to protect data. And it has needed access to extremely high-resolution maps across the country.

The timing of Musk’s trip was significant. He arrived in China days after he identified self-driving technology and AI as critical to Tesla’s future. Tesla is not just a car company, Musk told investors last week, saying, “we should be thought of as an AI robotics company.”

Approval of the technology in China would give Musk a much-needed win after regulators in the United States issued a harsh assessment of the system’s safety and performance in a report released Friday.

Musk flew on his private jet to Beijing on Sunday morning and met almost immediately with Premier Li Qiang, China’s No. 2 official after Xi Jinping. Li is a longtime ally of Musk who, when he served as Communist Party secretary in Shanghai, helped clear the way for Tesla’s construction there of what is now the company’s largest car assembly plant.

The government-linked China Association of Automobile Manufacturers later announced that Tesla and five Chinese automakers had obtained approval from authorities and the association for their data security precautions on dozens of car models. The rules bar automakers in China from using software that would identify the faces of anyone outside their vehicles and include many other restrictions. Self-driving systems use cameras to guide vehicles.

The cars included Tesla’s Model 3 and Model Y. The five Chinese manufacturers included BYD, which is China’s dominant electric vehicle company and Tesla’s primary global rival, and Nio, a longtime player in China’s auto sector.

Tesla has run a data center in Shanghai for the past three years that handles the extensive information accumulated by the cars it has sold in China as they navigate the country’s roads. China has tightened its data security regulations in recent years to severely limit information leaving the country.

Tesla has separately concluded a deal with one of China’s largest tech companies, Baidu, to obtain high-resolution maps of road lanes, according to a person familiar with the deal who was not authorized to speak about it publicly. Tesla cars in China have used Baidu maps for four years for basic navigation, directing drivers where to turn, but have not previously had access to the higher-resolution maps.

Baidu is one of about 20 Chinese companies with the necessary credentials from the Chinese government to obtain access to high-resolution mapping data. Automakers are required to partner with one of these companies or be forced to rely heavily on cameras on their vehicles to create their own maps, as Tesla has done until now.

No details were immediately available Monday on what Tesla has agreed to do in exchange for the approvals. China has a long history of urging multinationals to share considerable technology in exchange for access to its market. But the Chinese government insists that it does not force foreign companies to surrender their commercial secrets and promised the Trump administration it would not do so.

Tesla’s stock jumped Monday on the news of the approvals in China. The company last week reported that its profit plunged 55% in the first three months of the year, while its revenue fell 9%. Days earlier, Tesla announced that it would lay off 10% of its worldwide workforce, or about 14,000 employees.

As Chinese automakers introduce large numbers of their own electric car models this year, Tesla is doubling down on self-driving capabilities, putting the features into cars before other automakers, despite concerns by regulators and safety experts about the capability of the company’s technology.

Tesla already offers supervised “Full Self-Driving” in the United States. The company charges $99 a month to upgrade Tesla cars from its Autopilot or Enhanced Autopilot driver-assistance systems to the new level.

The main traffic safety regulator in the United States said Friday that it was investigating Tesla’s recall of its Autopilot driver-assistance system because of concerns that the company had not done enough to ensure that drivers remained attentive while using the technology.

The regulator, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, said there had been at least 29 fatal accidents involving Autopilot and Full Self-Driving from January 2018 to August 2023. The analysis did not assess whether the number of deaths was more or fewer than if humans had been driving without those systems in use. Technology used by other carmakers does a better job of making sure that drivers are paying attention, the highway safety agency said.

Tesla’s use of the term autopilot “may lead drivers to believe that the automation has greater capabilities than it does and invite drivers to overly trust the automation,” the agency said.

The agency is also investigating two fatal crashes involving Ford Motor Co.’s BlueCruise system, which allows drivers to take their hands off the steering wheel on many U.S. highways.

China has also had deaths from mistakes made by self-driving cars, which are now offered by numerous Chinese companies as well as Tesla. But crashes involving errors by human drivers are the frequent subject of viral videos in China, feeding a popular perception that self-driving cars may be safer.
