    Backwaters tour in Goa

    Written by

    Amit and Pooja travel in search for an enthusiastic and vibrant destination after marriage. Goa as always, never disappoints! Read their refreshing account of a romantic trip to Goa that will have you making sand castles in your dreams. Their trip cost them a total of INR 35,500 which included their meals, accommodation, and transfers.

    My wife and I were looking for a dose of youthful exuberance. What better place to provide it than a short trip to Goa. My brother-in-law suggested me to try booking a package from TravelTriangle.

    They provided a lucrative option of customizing the package according to your needs. I found my work to be far more easier as I will get access to a marketplace of multiple agents providing me with competitive prices.

    I submitted a query on the TravelTriangle website and was soon contacted by a travel representative from the company. He understood my needs and further connected me to various travel agents. I received multiple quotes from different agents, out of which I selected the best quote given to me by ‘Trip Sailer’.

    It was time to pack my slippers, shades and floral shirts. For it was time to relax and bask in Goa.

    Day 1: Flying into Goa

    We boarded our flight from Bangalore at 6 am and arrived in Goa by 8 am. Upon our arrival, the taxi from the agency was present to receive and take us to the hotel. We checked into The Lalit Hotel at around 11 am.

    We were dazzled upon entering the hotel as the property was massive and luxurious. We decided to rest for a few hours and then have lunch. Around 3 pm, we decided to take a walk to the reserved beach area for the hotel.

    In the evening, we decided to visit a small temple that was near the hotel. At 8 pm, we decided to go to a restaurant nearby for some drinks and dinner. The ambiance and music at the place was really upbeat and made us feel relaxed. We came back to the room at 11pm and rested for the night.

    Day 2: Beach + Pool + Good Food = A treat for a tired soul

    We woke up early morning at 5.30 am to take a walk to the beach. The weather and view at the time of sunrise was simply amazing. Barely a soul in sight, barely any noise except the waves hitting the coast.

    After a few hours, we returned back to the hotel and had a lovely meal. Post breakfast, we thought of relaxing in the gorgeous looking hotel pool. From noon to 3 pm, we relaxed in the water next to which there was a bar and snacks counter.

    All in all, it was heavenly. Felt like we were being rewarded for our good deeds. In the evening, we decided to again to take a stroll to the beach. The day ended on a perfect note with a light and tasty dinner.

    Day 3: Street shopping frenzy and a visit to Palolem

    Post breakfast, we decided to visit Palolem beach. A relatively less crowded beach from the many that exist in Goa which often draw criticism for being too crowded or sometimes even dirty. South Goa is definitely a place for people who are looking for peace and tranquility in an otherwise booming party capital of the country.

    After lunch, we decided to book a Goa backwaters tour on our own. The tour was scenic and majestic as it made us feel close to nature. Cruising in a boat through the lesser known parts of Goa was memorable. The tour ended in 2 hours and after that I decided to go on a street shopping frenzy.

    After having our wallets turned inside out, (quite literally!) around 4 pm, we returned back to the hotel tired and hungry. We spent the rest of the evening in the hotel chilling out, and enjoying our last night in Goa.

    Day 4 : Back home with a recharged mind

    Gardens at The Lalit, Goa

    We got up next morning, to have one quick final dip in the water. We came back to the hotel, and checked out at 11am. We left the hotel at noon and reached the airport via taxi for our flight which was to fly at 4 pm.

    I am of the belief that married people should often keep doing things that keeps them young at heart. Visiting Goa with my lovely wife and letting ourselves go wild and free again gave us a much needed boost for our lives ahead. All said and done about overcrowdedness, Goa is still a destination that begs to be visited.
