However, here are some tips that might come in handy at this time.

Firstly, be sure to choose a two-wheeler over a taxi as the traffic can get busy and the roads are quite congested. Two-wheeler serves better when it comes to squeezing your way in. if not that; then a taxi would be just fine.

Secondly, make sure you attend parties as a couple. This is because the fees is much cheaper for two than compared if you are single.

Thirdly, it is advised to plan prior to your visit and book the tickets. The accommodation as well the entry fees for the parties tend to increase at this festive season and the cost of the drinks also gets expensive. This may result in out-of-budget expense and wastage of money.


Lastly and most importantly, take care as you drink. Do not drink and drive at any cost. Police check posts set-up may pull you over and in no time, you may get yourself in trouble. Apart from this, the bumpy roads may be dangerous and one is advised to remain careful.

No matter what way you choose to end your 2018, if you choose Goa as your place, you are bound to have a great time. All that is important is to enjoy your last moments of this year and enter a new year with memory and a smile on your face.
