The main purpose of traveling by car to Goa was to stop by Dudhsagar Falls. of course we were tired by the time we reach Mollem, so got freshen up in the Dudhsagar Spa Resort, great food and enjoyed the nature around the resort. It takes about max 45-50 min to reach Dudhsagar Falls. There is no point in travelling to Goa many a times without stopping by at a spectacular view of Dudhsagar Falls. Amazing falls I have ever seen with the beautiful water curves and greenery around.
The start time was delayed by more than 2 hours and we were not given any snacks or meals at Bangalore Airport. Luckily good snack shops are available. The security check didn't allow us to carry water bottles. Airlines should provide water to the checked in passengers and provide snacks in the Airport if the flight is delayed more than one hour.
First of all the travel company cancelled the initial bus that I had booked and provided me a bus at an alternate time. The bus was a Deluxe A/C Sleeper bus which was very good but it wasn't punctual at the source. Reached about 30 min late. The staff were good. The driving though was not up-to the mark as the bus was moving a lot sideways and we couldn't sleep properly in night. The seats and A/C quality were good. It reached destination at almost correct time. Overall, decent experience with the bus travel.
Reached the detestation on time and it was a pleasant journey. Te staff in the aircraft and while checking in was very warm and helpful. Even after we landed in our detestation it was very easy to get our luggage and and could get out of the Airport very fast.
The road from Bangalore must be one of the best in the country. I first went of Belgaum and then took the road to Panjim. No potholes, the drive on the road is one of the best in the country. Drive on it is worth. However it is advisable to start early in the morning in order to avoid rush.
