This page is about my travel experiences, where I eat, what I see and explore and few tips and tricks to make your stay more comfortable and more familiar with the places before even going there.
The start of my journey: It was my Birthday when my friend called me up and during the chit chat we made the plan for GOA. The hunt began for the cheapest fares. From Delhi to Goa it was costing nearly 12k for a person, we were looking for alternative and we decided to go Via Pune which cost around 5k(to and fro). Then took a bus to Goa 1800(up down) – 6.8K in total.
Goa is heaven with its spectacular coastline, finest shacks, restaurants, pubs and clubs which make it a great place for the vacation and one cannot forget the water sports too. We used to dream about the place. We went in Feb, that is the peak season, from October – Feb, it is fully packed.
We visited: Chapora Fort, Aguada fort and beaches: Calangute, Anjuna, Arambol and Ashvem beach. Dudhsagar is at the other end touching the Karnataka border. The waterfall has a mesmerising view and the best thing is you can swim too with a support of life jacket.
Nightlife: There is Tito’s lane located near Calangute beach. It is one of the most happening places at night-time, consisting of some popular clubs. Regarding the club entry, it all depends on the crowd, if it is less they will allow stag, else couple entries and that too without cover sometimes. When we went, it was fully packed, only Tito’s was giving stag entry for 3K and that too without cover.
Some of the good clubs are Mambos, Tito’s and club Cubana. Did not go to LPK, was broke at that time LOL. In Tito’s lane, the club was mostly packed with married couples.
Calangute beach is a good beach and one can find lots of shack there. If you want to enjoy your drink and food with beach view then this is a nice place.
Arambol Beach: The best beach, less packed which comes with complete cleanliness. The place is generally occupied by the foreign tourist.
Ashwin beach: Same as the Arambol beach one of the best beaches of North Goa. They both have shack but here it is near the resorts so one can stay too.
This place is situated at the Anjuna Beach. It is heaven for the party animal, great fraternity, good food and music near the beach. The ambience of Curlies is truly remarkable. The place doesn’t sleep till 3 am, more and more people comes in as the night grow darker. It has a club too which is on the 1st floor but stags are not allowed so better get yourself a partner.
One can find women serving Maggi, omelette and many other things at a very reasonable rate on the beach side. You can bring your own alcohol to enjoy and save some money too.
Dudhsagar: In all over Goa rental bikes are available so need to worry about transport. The prices of bikes vary as the weekend approaches. Dudhsagar is located at the border of Karnataka about 80km from Calangute. Entry ticket of Rs 400 is charged and you need to park the vehicle. A jeep (accompany 7 people) is provided to take you to and fro. A time of 90 minutes is given to spend on the waterfall and then back. We started our journey around 7:30 am reached there at 10. We spent 3 hours in the fall and back by 4 pm.
The total expenditure of the trip was around 11k for us. We were not able to do water sports because of the shortage of time but it is one of the big attractions.
