The pace of life in this former colonial enclave, midway down India's southwest coast, has picked up over the past twenty years, but inspite of the increasing chaos of its capital, beach resorts and market towns, Goa has retained the laid-back feel that has traditionally set it apart from  the rest of the country .It's 1.6 million inhabitants are unequivocal about the roots of their distinctiveness, while most of the overlords were the Portuguese, a people far more inclined to enjoy the good things in life than their Anglo-Saxon counterparts.

How to Reach Goa :-

Road : Goa has good road connections. Goa, Maharashtra and Karnataka state road transport corporations all operate service out of Panaji's Kadamba bus stand. There are also services to Londa (where you can get a daily direct railway connection to Mysore every day), Hubli (a railway junction on the main Mumbai to Bangalore line, where you can also get trains to Gadag for both Bijapur and Badami, and Hospet and Hampi) and Belgaum.

Rail : Now the lines of the Goa is transferred from meter-gauge to broad-gauge. Goa's two main stations are at Margao and Vasco da Gama. Other useful stations on the Konkan route are Mapusa Road (Thivim) for Mapusa and Old Goa (Karmali) for Panaji.  Vasco-da-Gama and Margoa are connected by train with Bangalore, Belgaum, Hospet and Hyderabad and via Miraj to Bombay, Delhi and Agra. 

Water : As matter of fact that Goa lies on the side of Arabian sea so water transport is available and one of the means of the transport. The catamaran service between Mumbai and Panaji, operated by Frank Shipping, has been a bit erratic in recent years due to breakdowns. In theory it sails between October and May.

Local Transport : To move around Goa, there are local bus services operated by private bus owners and the State Undertaking Kadamba Transport Corporation in addition to luxury coaches, mini coaches, tourist taxis, auto rickshaws and motorcycle taxis, and cruises.
