On my latest visit I used the tailor for the manufacture of a bush jacket which turned out to be a great success and very economical after the usual haggling

Nothing exciting. Shops - get harassed. Sellers in street - get harassed. Restaurants - get harassed. One visit is enough don't know how tourists can go everyone night, unless your used to eating crap and an heavy drinker.

Interesting to walk around either just to pass time or shop. Pricier than most parts of India but this is a tourist location. Season was bad for traders so they were bearish with their prices, nice change. Roads are dusty

The most busiest street in North Goa, really. Lots of people, mostly locals, are peacefully hanging around this street.

my husband has been wanting to buy the Gandhiji’s 3 monkeys and he made sure to stop at all shops which had something like that, but either he didn’t like it or the locals were quoting exorbitant prices since we were tourists. However, thankfully, he liked the statues at holiday street and surprising there was no attempt at coming us... More

i bought the gandhis 3 monkeys statue from here at a reasonable price, considering that the locals are pretty much out to con you. so i recommend holiday street to shop and also to relax by the beach. nothing more goa than a sundeck with a nice book and tender coconut water or beer, whichever is your poison.

Midnight parties, not so many people are there in night for party, but who ever is available is ready to enjoy to their fullest... Dance till you are down... First day and the last day,, both were same... same energy and... More
