We are coming to Goa and India for the first time next week and are excited that it will be Holi when we are there.

Can anybody give us any ideas of what to expect during this festival and will it be celebrated around Betalbatim, or where to go to experience the festival?

Thanks in advance

You’ll be ambushed from a moving vehicle while walking along, water bombs filled with coloured powder and water, thrown by drunk youngsters. Watch out for drunk drivers, be very careful!

If that’s what you like then enjoy!😱😱

Don't wear any decent clothing they throw paint or powder at you from passing Scooters and cars. Be prepared to be ambushed by children who will throw powder or bombs full of paint over you. If it goes in your eyes try not to rub it pour lots of water into your eye to wash it out. Enjoy if that's your thing.

There will be a big Hoedown in Margao.

20 min bus journey from Betalbatim.
