"serious faux pas" Miscellaneous Tip by kbua
Miscellaneous, Goa: 30 reviews and 21 photos
DO NOT eat with your left hand. It's the "toilet hand". Greet, pay and most of all eat with you RIGHT hand.
DO NOT use drugs. Quite politically correct considering we're talking about Goa, BUT possesion of drugs can give you 10 years in the Aguada prison.
DO NOT sit under palm trees. Lovely shade, yes, coconut in the head, no. A surprising number of people die every year from falling coconuts.
DO NOT forget to bargain. If it doesn't have a price tag on it, it's negotiable. They usually start of at three times the price. Except for the Tibet people, much nicer people to make business with.
DO NOT make best friends with any of the 100 000 stray dogs in Goa. They look cute, but they can carry a lot of diseases.
