DAY 9 -
Early in the morning we gave a visit to the temple and spent a lot of time in the beaches and we also played the adventure activities in the beaches, spent time till almost 11:30 am. We left Ganapatipule at 11:45am and finally we headed towards Goa. Goa was about 280kms from Ganapatipule, the NH road was so bad that our average speed was 30- 35kmph max( NH under construction ). We reached Goa around 9pm. We had booked one of the best hostels in Goa, named - "THE WANDERERS HOSTEL, Morjim", it is best for travelers. Here you can make new friends who all have their passion towards traveling and you can share your travel experience with them as well. It was so awesome!!!!...So, Day 9 Morjim, Goa halt. I've uploaded the pics of the hostel below.
CHAPTER 7 - ALL ABOUT NEW YEAR
It's 31st of December 😎. Early in the morning we went on exploring Goa. Here is a few details about Goa.
Goa is generally refered as the party hub of India. It lies in the west coast of India I.e the Konkan coast. It has lot of Portuguese culture and more often you can see Portuguese blend on most of the infrastructures. Goa is all about beaches and beautiful churches. The most famous Waterfalls in Goa is Dudhsagar waterfalls which lies near the border of Karnataka. This falls seperates both Karnataka and Goa. One can view the falls by traveling in a train( Amaravati Express)
The main language is Konkani and Portuguese. English and Hindi is also well spoken and Kannada is another major language which is spoken in South Goa.
Goa can be divided into two parts, North Goa and South Goa. North Goa is famous for all the parties and South Goa is all about beaches.
Our plan was only to visit North goa, hence I list only the places which we visited in North Goa. These are the must visit places in North Goa.
1) Bhaga beach
2) Calangute beach
3) Anjuna Beach
4) Vagator Beach
5) Morjim Beach
Bhaga beach and Anjuna beach are the most famous beaches of Goa and is also where the best beach parties are held. It is too much crowded as well.
Morjim Beach is a calm and pleasant beach, not too much of crowd here. If you are someone out there like me who hates crowded places and like to watch sunset calm and relaxed, Yo!!! This is the place.
Bhaga beach is also famous for best Adventure water activities. You have individual ride and also a package which has 8 rides in it which costs you around 1500- 1800₹ ( again depends on the season)
Apart from these, there are lot of churches and forts in Goa. The church of Panaji is so beautiful and the Fort Aguada is one of its kind.
