Day 2

Hello People 😁
Recently I came back from a trip to Goa, a fabulous trip infact :D
So, I'll be sharing some of my experience and tips here for all of you so that you can have a great experience in Goa that too under a budget :)

Well, about me, I'm and always been a budget backpacker with all the necessities summed up in a bag pack I've covered a numerous places till date :)
Anyway, I'll be sharing my 3 days trip to Goa.

Day 1 : I travelled from Chennai to Goa via train and on reaching Goa, I took the local bus from their local bus stop and headed to my hotel which was in South Goa.
For all those people who think that Goa is all about night clubs and pubs, South Goa is a very different side of the coin I must say .

I hired a vehicle from my hotel itself which coated me about 500/day ( a but expensive compared to the ones in the north)
Then in the evening I went to Colva beach to experience a beautiful sunset 💓.

The beach has lots of shacks where you can have beer and snacks , I didn't find them much attractive though :)
Instead I tried  the local food from the food stalls and eateries and had some of the best pav bhaajis and soda xD

I returned to my hotel before 10pm because South Goa is not so lively at night and also my hotel was amidst a beautiful village yet scary :p

South Goa is all about greenery and peace :)

Day 3

Good morning from Goa 😁💓
So my morning began by waking up early and going to Cavelossim beach :)
It was very near to my hotel and I thought I might get a glimpse of sunrise there :D but I completely forgot that Goa lies on the west and so we can only see the sun setting in the huge Arabian sea (silly me) 😅

After this, I went to have some tea and accidentally I ordered the local Goan bun and trust me it was one of the best snack one could have with tea 🤩 of course after parle G 😛 .

In the afternoon I went to see few more beaches , just to let you know almost all of them were same located on the same coastline divided by some trees and locality 😁

In the evening I headed to Benalium beach and saw one of the most beautiful sunset of my entire life 😍 I swear it was magical, the golden orange pinkish blue colour with which the whole sky was painted . Oh god , I lack words to describe that beauty 😭😭

Then I had my dinner at one of the local restaurants of Goa, it coated me around 300 bucks (since I'm a vegetarian) :)

pro tip: whenever you go try your hands on the local food mostly and also restaurant's which are usually crowded by the locals , they're cheaper and serve some amazing delicacies.

So today I had to shift from South Goa to north Goa which takes about 2 hours by road,  I took a bus from South Goa to Panaji then from Panaji to Mapusa and then from Mapusa to Anjuna since my homestay was located near the Anjuna beach.
I reached my homestay at around 1500 hrs and was pretty exhausted by the journey.

By evening it started drizzling and Goa became more beautiful 😍  I took a bike on rent which costed me 300/ day and
I headed towards the Anjuna beach and I don't know how but by the time I reached there it stopped drizzling, clouds got cleared and I was able to see the sunset :)

Later, I went to baga beach and it was a sight to see, full of people dancing , boozing ( thank god it wasn't a weekend) otherwise it would have been more crowded.

Baga beach and the local market which operates throughout the day is a beautiful sight to see at night especially :)

My day ended on the shores of baga beach enjoying the waves and the music 😄

Day 5

This day was the final day for me in Goa, in the morning I went to have breakfast (again from a local shop) and then headed to the vagator beach 😄
There I did jet skiing for the first time in life and my experience was amazing guys 😍😍

Then , I went to the Chapora fort. It has a nice view from the top 😄 though I didn't find it to be exceptionally great ,except the cool breeze 😝

And by the time I retired to my room it was time to leave Goa and head back to the city :)

To sum up, Goa is an amazing destination not only for youngsters but for people of all the age groups 😄
The beaches are clean and pretty.
If you want to have a break from the hustle bustle of the cities and still want to enjoy beaches try to spend 1 or 2 days in South Goa.
Apart from this try eating at the local junks and restaurants instead of fine dining restaurants ( this will make you have a lot more experience on the food exploring and won't even dig a hole in your pockets)

Apart from this, if you're a budget traveller like me, try to do a lot research before going to any place and also pro tip :
Try to go during off seasons ( September end to October first week)
This time Goa will be more beautiful ( just after the monsoon) and won't be much crowded + you'll get great deals at very low prices.

Still you guys have any doubt don't hesitate to ping me :)
Have a wonderful day ahead 😁
