Today I had a flight from Hyderabad to Bangalore as I cannot travel directly to Gokarna which is also called as the Mini Goa of India. I travel a day early so I can reach Gokarna at least by 15th night as 16th October is my birthday.
Flight fares are cheaper most of the times and I didn't have any particular time to book so I booked the least expensive flight. I travel via all airlines except for Spice Jet. I don't hate Spice Jet but little skeptical about booking with them is because of the delays and cancelation. The only time I booked I had to wait for 6 hours at the airport since they informed me one hour prior to my departure about the delay.
I explored most of the parts of Central Bangalore which is Koramangala-Indiranagar route. You can party here for a day before you travel to Gokarna by bus/self cars. Or you can choose to start the same night you reach Bangalore. Depends on the Traveller.
I had booked a bus on 14th night itself to reach Gokarna on 15th October.
