had a week long vacation in goa recently. was great. but slightly over hyped. like every one in goa thinks tht ur a fool with a bloody truck for a wallet. wanted to hire a bike... chk this out a unicorn came for about 200/- per day, while the karizma was 450/-, bullet 250/- and pulsar 199 (?)/- per. but the most gagging part was... the bikes had to be returned by 7.00 in the eve. even if u had booked it at 5pm. it felt like sify was running the place here. second bad experience > at a club called 'cubana' no probs with the ambience and the crowd. the place is excellent believe me. but the bloody music not only did away with my mood but also with many ppls drinks. on enquiry about the 'DJ' it was known that he played 'Heephop' only and tht the man was 'down' with the crowd and from the states... so he was good (?). FACT >he was a bloody poser who didnt know wht the hell he was doin there. good point - the booze was on the house. the beaches were clean. no sign of the 'ghats' tht u usually encounter. the weather was bloody pleasent. all in all its an amazing tourist dest. but guys really lets reduce the hype...

Hi guys, was in goa about 3 months ago. For me it was expensive but no so much. Been to few places. I know the place that bhinder is talkin about. I was there just before the exposition. The roads are excellent, used the bus most of the times & pleasently used to fall asleep good roads, good buses unlike Pune here. The cabana was playin blues at that time which is my favorite. Nice & easy going. The good thing about Goa is if u're a drinker or a social drinker like me. People are friendly & the beer as well as the port wine keeps on flowing. It has its own charm. If one lives in South Goa then rooms are cheaper there & also very silent. North Goa is more commercial & hence expensive.

well fenny the first time i disliked it, the second time I could drink it the third time I started liking it. Something which can grow over period of time & also where u drink it, i think that also is part of it.

dude... first of all... heheh. the nick's dethbinder... no offense bhinder. hope there's none taken. ofcourse south goa's better. all the major 'non-popular' places are there. like mini vagator n stuff. not crowded like the other beaches. n believe shirishag75 when he talks about the drinking. damn... i should start agin. but i gues goa can do tht to u. :lol: anyways would be great in the rains now... only thing is tht u cant hire a bike n u have to be damn careful on the beaches... lightning can strike anytime!!! :eek: hehe.

The other part of this is that in goa if u're an non-drinker u're supposed to be peculiar. Smokin is not so much popular & for a guy who likes to smoke Ghutang Garam, this is doubly shitty. Only couple of places in the main mkt. where one could buy this. Same situation in Varanasi also, only couple of places where one can buy the good stuff. I guess that goes for everything in life !
