After the Diwali festival some days are still left. In most parts of India this is Diwali vacation time. So the tourist season starts from here. Though I live in a place which is 365 days on holidays, officially the government says this month as the start of the tourist season. Forget the government. It’s not a topic we should talk much about.
For the last few season there is increase in number of tourists from parts other of India. I can say that personally also as I have seen more Indian tourists on beaches than the foreign in some places. Fortunately or unfortunately it is the beaches which is the attraction for all tourists. There are many other places in Goa which are worth seeing.
As a tourist you should make sure you have good accommodation. You should book rooms before coming to Goa. It is relay difficult to get them when you visit in tourist season. Almost all hotels will run full. You may then have to lookout for some cheap motels. That can leave a bad taste about Goa in your memories. So book your rooms in advance.
Just to help you people, I am listing a list of websites that can help you. Internet is a great means to find a hotel without visiting.
