johnsmithinlondon :

I live in southern part of the UK and I want to fly to Goa in India. I know several airlines fly to Goa directly from outside of India, but these are usually charter flights such as on Monarch, Thomas Cooke, MyTravel, etc What I wouldn't mind doing is finding out what other airlines from outside of the UK (as well as within) fly direct to Goa. For instance I know planes from Russia fly direct to Goa and wouldn't mind say having a few days in Russia or wherever before going on to Goa. How can I basically work backwards and have Goa as my destination and find out who flies there from various countries?

Apurva M :
"You will have to travel to Bombay first and from there you can goto Goa by another flight. Apart from Sri Lankan airlines and Air India other foreign airliners are not allowed to fly to Goa directly."
navmomof3 :
"You were right about Russia. When we lived there (Moscow) we travelled direct on a charter flight. We used a travel agent to book the flight, I believe it was Carlson Wagon. You would most likely have to contact and agent in what country you wanted to fly from. Goa was a beautiful place, friendly people and the beaches......WOW!! Enjoy your trip."

I'm a college student with not a ton of money, but I've got an incurable fascination with Indian culture, I just want to get away, and Goa looks like the right place for me... Are there many hostels? What are they like? What about camping? What's the cost of living? Cheap food? Cheap activities? I don't know, I'm in the preliminary stages of planning this trip, and I just want to hear what some people with similar experiences have to say.

Beach beds are lined up outside the snack bars dotting the sandy white coastline and dance music booms from bars and restaurants. The only thing missing from Goa’s beaches are the throngs of merrymakers who normally flock here for the hedonistic year-end parties.
