This was pretty obvious, wasn’t it? Goa is the party capital of India. It is flocked with innumerable clubs, bars and pubs. What’s more is the rave parties! (Shhh, they are a secret). When you go solo, you totally should do a Pub Crawl, also known as Pub hopping.
Goa is an amalgamation of cultures. You’ll find Russians, Americans, Europeans and of course, Indians. However, do respect your boundaries and try not to creep them out. After all, they are on a vacation, too right?
The best way to travel in Goa is to rent a bike or a scooty. For a mere cost of Rs. 250 – 300 per day, you can rent two wheelers and explore the hidden beauty of Goa. Move past the conventional beaches and the populated night clubs. Explore the pretty forts and the ancient churches. Experience the quaint winding pathways. And indulge in some street shopping.
PS – If you’re more of a heavy bike person, you can also rent Bullets and Royal Enfields.
Huh? What is couch surfing?! Well, it’s simple. So, instead of staying in hotels (which can really drill a hole in your pocket L ), you can stay at a host’s place. Couchsurfing is less expensive and more interactive. You get to learn about the host, listen to their stories. In fact, you could help them out, too. A lot better, isn’t it? Something like home away from home? Another plus is that you get to meet fellow travellers. So, refer to point 2 perhaps :P

Sounds wacky, I know. But this is really the BEST part of going solo. Using bike taxis. You simply become the pillion rider and it’s really fun. You can sit in the backseat and enjoy the beauty around. They’re economical, too. Sounds like a win- win to me. Also, just trust your rider.
