Perfect Road Trip DestinationOne of the most lucrative factors of taking a Goa trip is its proximity to cities such as Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad. With a distance of 500-600kms, a Goa trip is just about half a days drive with well-equipped pitstops, beautiful views, and well-planned routes. Although there are wide connectivity options like trains, buses, flights, and ferries, a road trip is the favorite choice and rightly so.10. Budget LivingThe key factor for many travelers is the budget friendliness of any destination. Goa passes the test! Right from food, drinks, accommodations, and activities, Goa offers affordable options for all travelers. Basically, you spend as per your tastes and not by compulsion which automatically tilts the scales in its favor. Also, the reason why people take regular and multiple trips to Goa across seasons.11. Offbeat Goa
Goa is the home of beaches in India. The city is loaded with the plethora of beaches. The varied beaches range from super-flooded Baga beach, private beach owned by various big chains, Anjuna beach, Vagator beach, Morjim beach etc. From all the one I have visited, my personal favorite is the Morjim beach. Morjim beach is also called the turtle beach. If you want to enjoy a calm and composed time, enjoying the nature and beauty, spend some time in the less hustle and bustle beach, this is the right beach.
And I enjoyed the meal with the T20 match that was happening between Chennai and Punjab.After finishing the every night quota of my fag, I went to sleep.I woke up with the feeling, "Shit, tonight I've my flight. I've to return to Mumbai tonight."So, I enjoyed my morning dose of tea with a cigarette and asked for the breakfast to get delivered in the room itself.That day, I had Parantha and some Konkoan Veg Curry.I finished my packing, got ready and called my chauffer for the last time to pick me up.I checked out from the hotel and went to Calangute again to buy something for one of my office colleagues (Pallavi). After buying that I was heading towards the South Goa and found this church.
Morjim BeachThis is one of the last quite beaches of North Goa. The Northern part is more used by the Visitors as a beach heaven compared to the southern part, which is a bit more empty. Morjim is an important nesting place for the endangered Olive Ridley Turtels and so I guess for that reason the government decided to use only a part of the Morjim beach for Tourists. Yet, Morjim is not only famous for its wild life but also for the fact of being called “the little Russia”. Soon enough you will realise that there are more Signboards written in Russian then in English and even some of the locals seem to have picked up the language. The Morjim village became famous over the past 6 years, thanks to the Russians and I got to know the Russians now believe that they have finally found a place where they have their own countrymen as neighbours.
Then we headed to Morjim Beach one of a very low-key – almost deserted beach in North Goa. It is a great place to spot a large variety of birds and Olive Ridley Turtles, hillocks and good food. Morjim is also known as mini-Russia due to large concentration of Russian immigrants and considered to be one of the top 10 beaches in Goa. There are not much of night parties here so it is advisable to go in late afternoon and spend the evening there enjoying the Sunset, beach and chilled beer and then go to some other beach and enjoy the night parties. So we did the same we had a great evening in Morjim and then left for Baga Beach and went to St. Anthony’s Shack one of my favourite Shacks in Goa, it has karaoke, Sheesha and some good music and it bustles with energy all the time. *Renting a Car in Monsoon cost between Rs.1200 to Rs.1500 a Day*Chapora Fort is Around 24 Kms from Panjim*Morjim is located 29 km north of Panjim*St. Anthonys Shack is almost end of Baga Beach next to Brittos Shack Day 3
