As with other states, the Goan state government runs cheap one-day sight seeing trips for about US$1.00. Well worth the time.
Take a bus trip to north Goa or south Goa. Again, less than one dollar. Since public buses are crowded, go to a terminal and get a seat next to a window, so that one does not have to be put off by crowded passengers shoving.
Old homes. Recommended by government.

Goa's state capital, nowhere near the beach and the rather pretentious hippy posturing that many may find irritating, Panjim is a fascinating place to wander around, with Portuguese street names, decidedly European architecture, the fantastic Broadway Book Exchange, and the stunning toothpaste-white Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception.
Most buses will head here from the beach resorts.
