Goa. Those 3 alphabets sets off our happy hormones, as we enter a state of mind that talks about freedom, beaches and the pursuit of fun and adventure. Our first lessons on exploring Goa with friends came from 'Dil Chahta Hain', which celebrates 20 years since its release!
Let's look at some interesting places and moments in the movie that's now become iconic on our Goa Travels. Highlighting a few that I could remember!
1) The Drive to Goa
As much as you can get to Goa from Bombay in a song, it takes anywhere between 12-15 hours depending on how fast you drive. It is sometimes quicker to get from Bangalore to Goa, if you are targeting South Goa. But the route from either of the cities has a lovely passage through Hills, forests, Bland 6th Gear Highways
2) Chapora Fort Goa
The place where this iconic scene was filmed was the Chapora Fort which lies facing Vagator Beach on one side and the Morjim Beach on the other side. This shot below was taken facing the Morjim beach side.
