Men Packing List for GOA Travel?
Before we get into the glitz and glam of full outfits you should be carrying with you to Goa, here is some help for you to narrow down what to pack for a Goa vacation your way.
- As Goa is an ultimate vacation point with beautiful beaches and beachside festivals, people normally prefer the Summer season to plan a trip to Goa so they can enjoy the beaches and sun properly. If you too are visiting in Summers, keep in mind to keep all the synthetic material away from your suitcase. Pack cotton, fine silk and linen outfits for your trip.
- Don’t forget sunscreen, never forget the sunscreen boys. The summer scorching sun of Goa can damage your face and skin, sunscreen will keep you away from any tan sunburn.
- Caps, sandals and other lightweight footwear or shoes, sunglasses and everything cool and comfortable and to have a fun and stylish time in Goa.
- Plan accordingly to your days of the trip. A ton of burden of your luggage you will have to carry everywhere and take care of will only make you slow and put you down, the lighter the better in Goa.
- As totally already known and understood, it is not possible to go to Goa and not do picnicking and ocean dip ins, don’t forget your swimwear and bikinis to enjoy the beach like nothing is stopping you.
- For trekking and extensive walking sessions in Goa and when it starts to rain out of nowhere in that city, do not forget mobile and camera covers, medium size carryable bags and hats, omg I can not emphasize how much hats can elevate your summer trip outfits from 0 to 100.
- Fit everything small and carryable in your travel bags and handbags and set off for Goa, thankfully this city doesn’t have a dress code. Shorts, shirts and slippers will get you through an entire week in Goa.
- Ditch jeans and pack all the chinos you have with button-down shirts over tees, a basic Goa outfit for boys.
For a number of different outfits consisting of colorful shorts and shirts and chinos, here are all the details for you.
