GoaTrip GoGoa Bangalore to Goa

Huff!! After so many days / months we planned for the new trip. Wow!! that is goa.

GOA have lots and lods of things to do

* Not sure for veg food , but you will get good and best kind of non-veg food there. ( I am veg but I was unable to find some good testy veg food., but my friends enjoyed a lot. )
* For the out-side india guys, its very cheap for them. ITs very cheap for UK and USA guys.
* Beaches, ufff!! go the rest and forget all the things and enjoy, around some 80-120 km stretch of beach line.
* If you like to visit some good tramples and Cathedrals then goa is again good place to visit.
* What about discos and pubs don’t forget to go. ( we went in off-season so it was tough to find good discs. )
* Get bikes , car , cycle on rent and enjoy as the way you like.
* First time in india you will get bike taxi , so you what you need more tell the “pilot” – the bike driver that where you want to go. 🙂
* lods and lods more….

Goa is very good , beautiful place to visit. You will get all green places. On the way to goa we found some of the good places.

We were missing with one more license out of 5 guys. So we thought to visit goa by local transport bus.
That was also quite fun to visit goa by local transport when everyone is visiting on bikes.

We visited to anjuna beach, vagator beach, calangute beach, aguda fort and chapora fort.
And we have done a lot bathing and good food and yes fenny. ! 🙂

Our first try to Anjna beach – Anjuna beach having more restaurants and bars. This place is famous for non-indian guys. A this is also famous for peace kind of guys. And again this is famous place for chilam, pipes. So many time this place was blocked by govt. Not so good beach for visit, it contain rocks too in the water but you can have fun. 🙂

Our Next target was “Calangute”.
Calangute is known as “Gods famous beach” 13kms from Panjim and 8kms from Mapusa.

We have planned to stay here and since this was the off-season we got the place to stay there.

our day one stay

In the morning season the Calangute Beach is very heavy and the water is so tight here. We thought to take bath early morning but by looking the mood of water we changed our plan.

Next target was – “Fort Aguda” (meaning ‘water’ in Portuguese). This fort is like local harbour for goan fishing people. At the down part of fort is now central jail for goa.

Aguada Fort was built in 1962 this palce to preserve the old Goa from Dutch and Maratha raiders and this is built on Mandovi River.

Just some more phots with “Fort Aguda”

We enjoyed a lot for “Aguda Fort” since we have coverd this palce by kind of tracking , no bike, no taxi just waking to all the place and want to spent more time with the place.

Our next target was “Chapora Fort” and “Vagator Beach”. “Chapora Fort” was built by the Adil Shah of Bijapur on Chapora River. It was also known as “Shahpur” and is now mostly ruined. It has a commanding view of the Vagator beach.

In “Vagator Beach” you will get black lava rocks – full black, good coconut trees, and awesome nature way.
Vagator and Chapora are really awesome place , one who love the peace and view should go there.

Vindaloo and Xacuti (pronounced Cha’cuti) are originally Goan dishes sorry we were not able to eat that. But that will be in TO-DO list for next time.

    Please let us know how you managed your accomodation at goa. Did you just book a hotel and managed to visit sites by yourself or did you avail a package tour.
    We are travelling in November, so we are little skeptical about availability of rooms.
    Do we really need to book in advance or can we manage after reaching there.

    hey guys we’re planning a trip to goa on the 2nd weekend of august by road that’s by bike so is it better to view the places in day or night. i mean the spots on the way to goa. or is it better to go to goa first and then on the way back go to other places. also how much is the accomodation charges for a decent hotel room.
