Travelling to your vacation destination often sets the tone for the rest of the trip. From flying in the open blue skies of the plains over the emerald sea to driving up the meandering seacoast roads, your options for traveling to Goa are:

  • By Air

If you are travelling from outside India, then you can take any of the scheduled flights to Goa. You can fly direct from UK, Russia, Germany and Switzerland. Travelling from North America may involve one or 2 flight changes. For those travelling from within India, again all flights will take you to Goa Dabolim Airport, marking the start of a fabulous vacation!

  • By Train

For many of us a vacation isn't complete if a train journey wasn't involved. A cheaper alternative to air travel, the route will take you through lush greenery and tunnels. There are a number of direct Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Mangalore, Kochi, Kolkata, Thiruvanantapuram, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad to Goa trains. Your destination will be Madgaon railway station, located 33 km, a 50 minute drive from Panaji, which you can cover in the city bus that will cost INR 20-30 or a . Plus, the beaches of Colva and Benaulim are located 6-8 km from Margao, which you can visit on your way to the city.

  • By Road

The road journey is for stalwarts and those of you more used to long distance road trips. If you are travelling from Mumbai the distance is 593 km and it will take around 18 hours to get to Goa by a Mumbai to Goa cab or taxi. From Pune, the distance is 450 km, Bangalore 592 km and Mangalore 360 km. Goa is well connected by road to various cities and the Kadamba Transport Corporation runs the state-run bus service. Buses

Once you reach Goa all the travel fatigue will literally wash off with the sight of foot high waves, beaches and the revelry that is as natural to Goa as its sea.
