If you are traveling to Goa and seeking guidance on how to travel, these guidelines can be followed. Whether you are young and energetic with friends or with a family and kids. This way, you can explore the area independently, avoiding reliance on taxi drivers and uniformed personnel.
When you arrive by flight, the bus that commences from the airport should be taken. Google Maps can be quite helpful in searching buses. With ample luggage space available on the bus, there is consequently no necessity for a taxi if your destination is Panjim or Calangute.
After arriving by bus from Mumbai or Pune, typically around 6:30 am, you’ll notice that the bus stand is conveniently located just across the road, so you can easily walk there. There, a city bus is available every 5 minutes, and a quick 15-minute ride to Dona Paula or Miramar can be enjoyed for just Rs 10 (rates may vary).
Scooters can be rented, and a compulsory helmet rule is in place. Consequently, a helmet used by many other people will need to be worn, which entails the risk of contracting ringworm. This situation has been experienced by some of my friends.
In Panjim, the entire city can be explored on foot, and it is advisable not to bring your vehicle, even if suggested by your wife or girlfriend. Parking becomes a frustrating challenge, requiring circling around for about an hour. For a trip to Dona Paula, a bus ride from the bus stand at Rs.10 is recommended. The last bus departs at 7:30 pm when the crowd thins. If you opt for a car to visit Dona Paula, your evening will be spent searching for a parking spot.
During the Monsoons, Goa becomes a lush green paradise, offering breathtaking views. Monsoon treks, organized by GTDC, are considered among the best in India, exploring places you never knew existed.
