#Flag It - Goa Edition

We have curated a list of things to watch out for in Goa - Red & Green Flags about this little paradise. If you like this, do share the page so we can create many more similar guides. Write to us, if you have any personal experiences to share:

Route Planning

Google Maps is NOT your best friend


Goa has a lot of poorly-lit & deserted streets. Our friend, Google, doesn't quite know about this and tends to show routes via these unsafe routes. Pick your routes carefully. Search for establishments like restaurants, cafes along the way.

Pink Force is here for you!


Goa has a dedicated Pink Force to prevent crimes against women. This is a 250-member team that functions round the clock and can be contacted on dialling 1091. They have area-wise teams and usually would get to your spot within 15 minutes.


Some popular places are best avoided 


Baga & Calangute are one of the most popular spots in Goa, but we would recommend giving it a miss. Women from the OHW Community have had many unpleasant experiences in these areas and wouldn't recommend it to our gal pals.

Local Goans are some of the best people you'll meet.


You can always seek help from the locals in Goa. They are warm & usually very forthcoming to help. We have our very own community of Local Gal Pals as well, that you can tap into for a carefree experience.
