Getting To Goa

Everyone talks about travelling to Goa , and well when they do so are at once pondering over the idea of getting there by Road, by Air, by Railroad or by water.

I must say for international travellers who are flying straight from their home towns to Goa it would mean that Air travel would be probably the only way you could get to Goa. We have many flights , national and international , operated from the Goa Airport at Dabolim which operate to and from Goa , but for travellers from within India or neighbouring India , they could travel by Railway and thus also enjoy a bit of scenery on your trip through India on your journey to Goa. The Konkan railway has trains which take passengers to and fro from Mumbai to Goa and back.

By road is another way through which you could get to Goa. Goa is connected to all the major towns in India through the national highways which are in excellent condition, these are NH4A,NH17 and NH17A.Most buses arrive in Goa in the early hours of the morning and depart in the afternoon as well as early evening.This bumpy ride to Goa is fun, thrilling and enjoyable.

You could also get to Goa by sea, and this is possible since the service by Samlink started in Dec 2004.It departs at around 9am and arrives at around 6:30 pm.That was a little on how to get to Goa, but in the column below is some information on how you could  go around in Goa and thus not be dependant on a tourist guide.
