Malls in Goa are now an upcoming trend in one of the top holiday spots in India, especially among the young generation. After movies like 'Dil Chahta Hai', and ‘Dear Zindagi’, Goa has also become a symbol of friendship, recovery, and bonding. When a destination transforms from being merely a place to relax to something that symbolises togetherness, healing, and friendship, you know that it is worth a visit. So why are you waiting? Unwind, shop, and experience a new culture while you fall in love with life.
“If I have free time, I want to go to the beach, walk around a shopping mall, go grocery shopping. Live a little bit of life.”
