Goa travelogue picture
Its been so often that i visit Goa for a complete mind rest with some fun after getting some break to get work figures out of my mind, well i would strongly suggest to be in india in a small state called Goa wherin the centuries before it was ruled by the Portuguese and till now some of the traditonal houses and celebration remains the same. yet so my often visit leads me to stay in panjim wherin all the happening places are nearby not saying to have a reasonably priced room which is very important to see accordingly my savings for the rest of entertainments, not forgetting to mention if you happen to be in panjim i would strongly suggest to stay in Afonso's Guest house which is centarlly located in the city like for a known address it is called the portuguese landmark area near st. sabastian chapel, the place is a beautifully designed to give the royal old portuguese feel. saying about the room in Afonso is so economical that one can stay for month or two without pocket fear. The rooms are well maintained, so clean spacious with all bathroom facility, and the best part is the hotel roof top where morning breakfast is served with your own requirements the way you want your delicious grub to be like italian, mexican, chinese, french, indian, thai, arabic, and so on varieties. proudly owned by Mr Afonso and helped by family members is the best part you will never find a friendly family elsewhere like this people greet you and take good service upto the mark. the place is located in an area wherin its easy to catch a taxi or local bus to go at a distance place or simply call the room service and they will do the needfull or else if you tend to have a walk in the main market area its about 5 mins walk to all near cafes, pubs, famous churches, shoping mall or local purchases, in the late evening there are cruises which take you over the river to the mouth of the sea showin the views of goa sea sides with snack hard drinks and live or dj music to take you in groove. WOW

Favourite spots:

THE PEOPLE ARE SO SO VERY FRIENDLY and its very safe to party all night long if you dont get in any mess or trouble indeed the security of allparty destination are always there to control leaving the cops not to mess the funof party goers.

Sights:
Goa travelogue picture
Being in goa and not visiting any of the churches is no fun at all, well the most beautiful churches, temples and mosque are added beauty for goa like wise the hidden tradition can be revealed as you visit these places. as a mark of portuguese rule in goa before has left beautiful memories in proof of the old churches like old goa and lot more. In the panjim city the big and beautiful church is Immaculate conception church situated at the heart of capital. Have to see it or beleive it.

Accommodations:
Goa travelogue picture
As mentioned earlier about the best and most economical stay in Goa- Panjim is none other than Afonso's Guest house, Near St. Sabestian Chapel, Fontainhas, Mala, Panjim, Goa. so travellers take my small advice and make a pleasant stay in town with afonso's and make all your visits special after all in Goa what we all want is some peace and good rest after a tiring but good day in a relaxing place (Afonso's)

Nightlife:
Goa travelogue picture
There are mind blowing discos and pubs along the beach areas, coastal lines, in the city. all over the place there is a nightlife but one should be of certain happening at each days and each seasons if you wanna really be there to have a breath taking experience. some famous disc's like mambo's club cabana, paradiso, butter lounge, on the rocks, etc. and lots more take a kick start in the evenings till early mornings.

Hangouts:
Goa travelogue picture
If you need to seriously hangout to some busy place where you get in to know people all over the world than better be at the goan famous beaches rather than in cafe or restaurants as the beach hangouts is the best wherein some times the super stars of different countries also be in mixing with the people at water fun along the belts of rivers and beaches. watch out you may never know which actor or a celebrity is having a swim next to you.

Restaurants:
Goa travelogue picture
VIVI PANJIM Restaurant next to Afonso's well the best meal at all times. each day you of your taste buds and there flows the varieties to choose mmm' great ya

Other recommendations:
Goa travelogue picture
There are thousands of recomendation if started in detail but to make it snappy well i would sure recommend jet ski and all the water sport available in almost all the beaches in goa like in you pay a good price if your couple or have fun all along with your mate. no word the picture attached will say it all.

Interesting read indeed, and very personal perspective. Concise and to the point. I was just wondering if you could give some more indication about prices. Very good first report, though.
