Hi Ladies, I'm planning to visit Goa during the 3rd week of June. I wanted expert suggestions here: 1. June being monsoon time, with the reviews I read it's mixture of good and bad. Yes, I want to go and play in the beach! Is it possible during that time. I personally thing June is the right time to enjoy in the beach as it won't be crowded. However, I also read that the beach shacks will be closed. In case they are closed, where can we find such items for same price. 2. Good place to stay. I'm looking for reasonable, economical accommodation where it would be safe for girls to stay. Home stay also will do if they are affordable. particularly looking for a relaxing accommodation. Goa is a place filled with resorts and hotels where it's really difficult to choose one among the rest. 3. Places to see around. We don't expect too much of travel. Just need a relaxing break from the hustle bustle of daily routine. 4. Place to have good food. Heard sea-food is in scarce during rainy season. Expecting good non-vegetarian food. It would be great if we can get sea-food for reasonable price. 5. Train service to Goa from Bangalore. All I get to know is there's a Friday train which comes from Chennai. We are planning to go on a Thursday! Else the option we have is KSRTC bus. 6. Hiring a bike in Goa. Where and what is the procedure to hire a bike in Goa. 7. Anything else you would suggest while at Goa.
