I know travelers are never tired of collecting information about places! Let me take the privilege to share my personal experience. I hope by now you can understand that I love exploring beaches, where Goa tops my list followed by Kovalam. Well, my trip to Goa is just half- year old when I booked my flight tickets to India from USA which was available in the last minute.
First and foremost, if you really wish to make your trip ‘happening’, the best dates to book your slot would be right on the Christmas vacation. And you can see the difference yourself.
The city ‘welcomes’ you with much love and happiness. The ambiance, the positive vibes, the native (Portuguese) people and the beaches are sure to rocket your excitement to a higher level when you head towards the hotel. You know you are in Goa when you look around to see the ‘foreigners’ at each and every place!
‘The North Goa’ is much more popular with the visitors than the south Goa while the latter has many heritage and beautiful sight scenes to offer. We stayed in the Ronil keys resort at Baga that had the best location to beaches, night clubs, and restaurants!
The ‘best attractions to try out’ are the Baga beach, Anjuna Beach, Calangute beach, Colva beach, Dona Paula, Chapora Fort,and Aguada fort . Every beach has its own story and beauty. Visit the St.Basilica Church and all its adjacent churches too. They surely calm our mind and give us relief! Girls! You must make sure that you don’t wear any short dresses as they won’t allow you inside the church.
Do not forget to enjoy the ‘River Cruise’ on the great Mandavi River. You will be so amused to see the native Portuguese dances, hearing the story behind it, laughing with the jokes, enjoying the cool breeze and the amazing lights with decorations and also loud music on the cruise which will keep your feet -tapping and you will never know when your 2 hour ride just got over. This will make you want to look for USA to India flights and book even business class flights if needed.
If you are a Movie-buff then I am sure you can connect well with the ‘prime location shoot of Chennai express – that is at Dudhsagar Falls! Well let me unlock the journey to the falls briefly. It will be almost an hour long ride to reach there but the wait is worth it! With jungles surrounding on both the sides, you will be given an adventurous ride with the jeep safari going through the waters and land! Once you reach, click some pictures and go on exploring the falls. You will be given a life jacket so that you can get down feeling the chill in the water. Make sure to carry some extra clothes with you.
The only restaurant that we tried and loved is the ‘Fat Fish’ that served north Indian cuisine the best. Don’t forget to try some ‘Goan Dishes’ namely Pork Vindaloo, Prawn Xacuti and some special thalis. Good or bad, do give it a try! We are sure your flights from USA to India with some cheap airfare for India will be totally worthy as Goa is the ultimate place for fun. So come on, start looking for some best USA to India flight deals and continue with the flight tickets booking in USA. I have also observed a trend that most of the couples and bachelors love to rent a 2-wheeler for a beautiful ride amidst the outskirts of Goa! There lies a different kind of fun.
Last but not the least, to all the ‘shopaholic ladies out here’, shop till you drop. Saturday night bazaar, Anjuna flea market and the beautiful Goan dresses are a perfect eye-candy! I myself could not resist buying a swim suit from there! You will be carrying many accessories back home unknowingly. On a finishing note, I would like to say that enjoy the candle light dinner in the Baga beach with the light music and a cozy atmosphere if you are willing to land up during the peak Christmas days.
