Day 1 – Arrival in Goa

Get off your plane or train and take a cab/ pre-booked transfer from there to your hotel. Ideally if you arrive by flight you would reach the city centre in half an hour to forty-five minutes whereas from the train station to the city centre it would take an hour easily. Since you will be doing the North Goa sightseeing the next day you can consider splitting your stay. First two days you could stay in Candolim which would make it easier for you to explore the north side and then the last day you could consider staying in Palolem.

Once you reach your hotel, check-in and maybe spend the rest of your day exploring Old Goa on your own. You can rent a bike or car on spot and just take a stroll while tasting different food at the restaurants. Get a good night’s sleep as the next two days of your Goa 4-day Itinerary around the beach city is going to be kick-ass!
