Having been to Anjuna Market twice, we thought we have a look at Mackies night bazaar. We knew that it was held every Saturday at 6pm onwards.Mackies Night Bazaar is a Goan market.So we went yesterday, no sign of anyone setting up for the market at 6pm. So we tried again at 7pm, no one. It was not open. So ask around before you go.more

We have been away from England for 10 months now, so we could not resist going here.It is in the same place as Cocktail and Dreams. The food is very English. Tea and Scones with Jam and Butter. Ploughman's lunch (Salad, Cheese, Home made pork pie, Pickled Onion, Baguette and an Apple). The copule who run are very friendly and helpful. Scone, Jam...more
Lila's cafe serves great breakfast and lunches by the river. With a thatched roof and wicker chairs it is a great place for a lazy breakfast. It is run by a German couple and this is reflected in the menu. Also as it is by the river it is very peaceful. Fresh Bread with home made liver pate.Expresso is also good.more
Situated opposite Mackies Night Bazaar on the Baga river. You can sit outside and watch the sunset over the river. Or watch the sports inside, play darts or read a book from their Library.Traditional English food avaible. They also run fishing trips.If you sit outside, watch out for the red ants that bite! No dress codemore
If you past Tito's and Mambo's on Tito's road and head down to the beach, you will find several beach shacks. They have music, okay the mixing isn't quite as good as it is in the nightclubs. But you will still have a good time and there is no charge to get in and the drinks are not overpriced.The staff are friendly and will make sure that you are...more
Already when I arrived to Hospet I bought a train ticket back to Goa. I got a ticket for Rs 170 (June 2010) in the SL class.

I booked it through the hotel and it picked me up...more
From Baga I went on a daytrip to Old Goa using public transportation. In the morning I took a bus from the main road in Baga to Panaji. It was Rs 12 (July 2010) and took 45 minutes. In Panaji the bus stopped at Kadamba bus stand and from there the bus on to Old Goa was also leaving. The buses are frequent and I didn’t have to wait long. The bus to...more
We have come across Time Share touts in both Candolim and Baga. One tout in Candolim even swore at us as we kept saying no.
The easiest way for them to go away is to simply say 'No time share, Thanks'. It does the trick and they don't chase you done the road.
You will easily recognise the touts. They will approach you on a bike ask if you speak English with a card in their hand. They always wear shirts of the company that they work for.
Because we came from Thailand we had some Thai Bhart to exchange. We went to three places and the difference in what was being offered was amazing. The best place we found was Marlin money echange on Tito's road. The woman who was working there knew her stuff. We also asked about exchanging dollars and she offered the best rate we have seen...more
