My Experience of Solo Traveling in Goa India-
I traveled Goa many times. But I travel Solo in Goa at last February. I went Goa because of doing water sports and enjoying beach parties. I traveled Goa by train as I did before. When the train passes away from Konkan railway tracks, it gives me an amazing feeling. I left my solo journey of Goa at Margaon Railway Station. I went Vasco da Gama from Margaon by Local Bus of Goa. I stay in Vasco da Gama first day. It is in South Goa. The hotel prices in south Goa is Cheaper than North Goa and Panjim. So I choose south Goa for my first-day accommodation. It’s an amazing night I spent in South Goa. At morning I went Panjim from Vasco da Gama local bus stand. Then, Panjim to Calangute beach by bus. I spent my half of day at Calangute beach. I do jet-ski and speedboat ride at Calangute beach at morning time. Then, I took rest after taking lunch and went to Baga beach at evening time. At Baga beach, I do parasailing, speed ride, banana ride and other rides at evening time. I enjoyed a beautiful sunset at Baga beach. Then I went Anjuna beach market at night time and do some shopping for the night. Then I went to Anjuna beach at night time for beach parties and dinner. First I took dinner and then I went to beach parties. It’s an amazing experience I get to attend a beach party at Anjuna beach of North Goa. I do much fun there like drinking and dancing at the party. I spent my half of night at this party. Then I went to my hotel which I booked in north Goa now (near Anjuna beach). And my first day is over here.
The second Day, I woke up at 11 AM because I am in the party last night and slept at 3 AM. After a beautiful sleep in North Goa’s Hotel room, I started the journey of next day with taking breakfast at Anjuna Beach’s Restaurant. It’s a cloudy day and the temperature is almost above 30 degrees. I did scuba diving in that day. So I got ready for it. I go for Scuba diving at Anjuna beach. It’s a fantastic experience I got to do scuba diving in Goa. I make underwater videos also by my GoPro Hero 5. It’s a sports action camera which I usually most while traveling. Because it’s small, lightweight and easy to carry. I do scuba diving in the sea. Its cost approx 3500-4000 for one time. You can do scuba diving at almost all beaches of North Goa with the help of government-approved water sports team. I love to do all water sports. I came back to the hotel at the evening time from Anjuna beach. Now I took a nap of 30-45 minutes and bath again. Now I am getting ready for Casino parties. So I wear formal dress and go to Panjim from My hotel room. Its approx 18 km distance between Panjim and Anjuna beach. There are lots of casinos in Panjim (the capital of Goa). But I chose Deltin Jaqk for enjoying my Night at Casino. Its Rs 3000 ticket price of Deltin Jaqk Including Unlimited Foods and Drink. Deltin Jaqk Casino is in a big cruise in the city Panjim. I went to Deltin Jaqk by small jetty by Deltin group. It will give you an amazing experience to spend your whole night on a big cruise in the middle of the river. After entered in Deltin Jaqk, firstly I took breakfast and drink 2 bottles of beer. I played many gambling games there. I eat yummy foods there and tasted many types of drinks, beer, and wines. I win approx 65000 at this night at Deltin Jaqk Casino in North Goa. After playing and winning the games, I go back to hotel room and sleep. My tour’s cost almost covered by playing gambling games in Deltin’s casino. But I recommended you to don’t take so much risk while playing gambling games in the casinos in Goa. I spend my luckiest day at Goa in that day. After going hotel I felt so tired, so I slept until next day noon.
Next day, my flight was on the evening of that day and I slept until noon. So after waking up, I took lunch and go for a city tour. I went old churches, Panjim market and other places in Goa. Be a backpacker, I had just a backpack bag with me at that time. So I checked out from the hotel and go to old church with carrying my bag. I spent totally a amazing noon at the old church and go to Panjim at the time of 4 O’clock. I did some shopping at the market of Panjim and go to Vasco Da Gama by local bus from Panjim. From Vasco da Gama, I went Goa International Airport by taxi. Goa International Airport is not so far from Vasco Da Gama. Now I am ready to go for next tour of Mumbai from Goa. I caught my flight of Air India and fly to Mumbai from Goa. It’s an amazing tour of Goa. I am alone and so much fun than last time I came with the group of my friend. I do almost all things what I want. I do hitchhike also in Goa. So, it’s my Goa’s experience as a solo traveler and I do more much fun than I expected.
Don’t Worry if you are alone or solo male or female traveler, Visit Goa without any tension. Goa’s people always welcome tourists.
