3. Visit a Spice plantation
Visiting a spice plantation will be one of the most culturally-interesting things to do in Goa during your holiday. Ponda is famous for its fragrant spice plantation tours where you can see peppercorns, cardamom, cloves, cumin, saffron, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and vanilla pods in their natural environment. Whilst there you can also enjoy the spices in a traditional Goan meal with a glass of Feni, the local spirit made from cashew nuts, providing a unique flavour to your stay in Goa.
