You don’t have to brag about your capacity and it’s cool to drink lesser than your buddy. We know alcohol is cheaper in Goa than it is in most other cities in India, but that doesn’t mean you barf all over the place!
2. Don’t invite death by driving/riding recklessly.
Be it your own death or someone else’s; don’t ask for it by drinking too much and then getting behind the wheel.
3. Don’t hit on someone if they visibly appear disinterested in you.
A lot of people ASSUME that Goa is a good place to hook up with strangers. Well, not everyone who visits Goa goes with the same intention as you. So, respect the choices of others.
4. Don’t make foreign tourists feel unwelcome.
Don’t stare at foreigners as if they are aliens. Asking them to pose for a picture with you is CREEPY, not cool!
5. Don’t wait outside clubs pleading for ‘entry’.
Quite a few clubs in Goa don’t allow stag entry. We get it that it’s unfair. Maybe. Maybe not. However, that doesn’t mean you stand right outside the club and ask every passing girl to go in with you ‘just’ for entry’s sake. If a club denied you entry, try another one or go get drunk at a shack. There are many better things to do than stalking people for club entry!
6. Don’t get into a drunken brawl.
If you think someone’s too drunk and sense that they want to pick a row, keep your ego aside and walk away. Drunken fights will only make you appear a fool.
7. Don’t indulge in PDA just coz it’s acceptable in Goa.
Goa is one of the least conservative places in Goa (or so everyone assumes). However, that’s not a reason to indulge in extreme PDA. Refrain from doing things that will make others around you uncomfortable!
8. Don’t wear your bridal makeup and jewelry to the beach!
We get it you are newlyweds but enough with the need for attention. Excessive jewelry (especially gold) will invite unwanted attention. In fact, you could be the next target of fraudsters.
9. Dont litter!
Please don’t dispose of your alcohol bottles on the road or the beach. Goa is a clean place, let it remain so!
10. Don’t forget your clothes!
Underwear is not equivalent to swimming trunks or bikinis! Wear appropriate swimwear on the beach instead of being a wannabe!
Having said all this, we hope you enjoy your trip to Goa as it’s such a fun place to be. On a parting note, be nice to the locals as they tolerate too many tourists, especially during peak season! Pack light, stay safe!
