Which 3 bans in Goa and what caused it?
These 3 bans in Goa can or may result in decreasing number of tourists pouring into Goa. Due to recent incidents taking place in this haven called Goa, the Government has decided to pass new bans.
#1. Drinking on the beaches of Goa
Many tourists have complained about their unpleasant walks on the beaches of Goa. Their reason being, some people, after a good drink, tend to break their glass bottles on the naked sand which is dangerous as many unsuspecting tourists visiting the beaches usually walk bare-feet to enjoy the true sandy feeling only to be met with broken pieces of glass piercing their feet. Just because of a few careless people, drinking on the beaches of Goa has been banned.
#2. Cooking in public places in Goa
“It is unhygienic and results in huge amount of garbage being strewn in public areas,” says Tourism Minister. CM Manohar Parrikar on Monday directed the State police to crackdown on cooking in public places by tourist groups, including, on beaches. They have instructed police to crack down on groups of tourists who travel by buses, carry cooking equipment to cook their meals anywhere in the open. We have seen many tourists buses parked on the open ground at Calangute near St. Alex Church. It definitely is unhygienic and makes such areas look like a bazaar.
#3. Swimming at the beaches of Goa after sunset
Thinking about going for a swim in the sea after sunset when there’s quite and peace? Forget it. After the recent deaths due to drowning while swimming in the sea were reported, concerns were raised over the safety of tourists at the beaches to avoid further dangers and deaths caused due to drowning. Some people come to have a good time in Goa, but end up losing their lives after ignoring several warnings. Nobody has asked anyone not to drink. Drink, but in limits, don’t go into the deep sea under the influence of alcohol especially after sunset.
