A Walking Tour of Panjim | 2019

City guide | Best places in Panjim to sleep, eat, shop & explore on foot


Having first moved to Panjim back in 2012, I’ve since established a bit of a routine when it comes to spending a day in the state’s capital city or introducing it to a friend for the very first time. Situated along the banks of the Mandovi river a 30-minute drive from the airport, the city of Panjim boasts a beautiful old quarter with narrow lanes and unforgettable architecture, a bustling municipal market, plenty of art galleries, cafes and quality restaurants along with a slew of great shops selling both local and international wares.


So put on a good pair of shoes and follow along with the map below or better yet, ditch the mobile and get your hands on a copy of a Locus City Card.


The Mumbai based company has been designing beautiful hardcopy neighbourhood maps for nearly a decade across various cities in India and recently launched their first Goa edition (Panjim + several areas of North Goa) in December 2018. First, check in with your hotel to see if they stock them and if not, stop in at any number of their participating retailers to pick up a copy of your own. Carefully crafted & curated, these pocket sized maps are the perfect side kick and souvenir from your visit to Goa.
