Goa Trip Under 5000
So last week I went on a trip to Goa along with 5 of best friends. So it was a really fun trip while spending just under 5000 per person.Goa trip on a budget under Rs 5000
Now before I start classifying all the expenses, I just wanna throw a disclaimer that .. it was my trip and will vary from person to person, depending upon your lifestyle and whom with you are going, cause it’s very cheaper if you go with your friends than family. I’ll also blog budget Goa trip with my family, it will be a bit more expensive. Now moving on since we are 5 friends, the bill split up and the cost per person comes down to 5000 per person. So let’s start the trip ……..
Before starting a trip one important thing is to PLAN ..
So Basically Goa is divided into 2 parts.
- North Goa
- South Goa
North Goa is sort of Happening places, you will see a lot of young crowds over there. It is all about Beaches, parties, and Drinking – the perfect place to go with friends. North Goa has all the popular beaches like Anjuna, Vagator, Baga beach Goa
South Goa or Old Goa, on the other hand, is better if you are with your Family. It’s a quiet and subtle place where you can chill around on beaches. The Crowd is also on the elder side. Mostly Churches. One day conducted tour will sufficient.
Now I’m assuming that you are going with a friend -Here is a link if you go with your family
So Perfect destination for you guys will be North Goa. North goa might be slightly more expensive than south, but the extra penny is totally worth it. The distance between north and south Goa is 40km.
When you are going also plays an important role in your expenses – if you go between December(especially During Christmas and New year time ) to January the prices will be 1.5times than normal for almost everything -hotel, rents, shopping etc.
Now I am classifying my expenses into 4 major categories.
1.TRANSPORTATION – You can go by Flight, train, or Road to Goa. We chose to go by Train as I have said we were on a shoestring budget. And to make it, even more, cheaper we went through 3 Tier Non AC Train .. and honestly, that was quite an experience. It would say that carry your own bedsheets and Blanket as they are not provided in Non AC couches. It was so so cheap like one way is for 250ish so 2 way it was 500rs Obviously the Train Prices vary from where you are you going. So to round off we can take as 600 INR
2.ACCOMMODATION – It is one of the most expensive parts of any trip. Initially, we were looking at individual hotel rooms but we ended up settling on a villa which has a private pool in it. I’ll link that villa. So splitting up the bill it comes down to 2250 rs per person for 2 nights and 3 days. So total cost if we sum it up comes to 12000-13000rs.
3.TRANSPORTATION – So once you actually reach Goa, its must rent a scooty or a bike cause it is really Fun and gives you the vibe that you are actually in Goa 😂. And you can wander around here and there. There are a bunch of Palaces which rent out 2 wheelers. So we were 5 people so we rented 3 vehicles. One scooty rented 300 rs and 400rs with a patrol. So we rented for 2 days and the price comes up to 400per person
4.FOOD — The 4th expense is food, it’s a little bit tricky to know how much I spend on food. So for me per meal was no more than 200rs so I know this thing will vary. So on average, I’m taking it as 300per meal. Food in Goa is very very cheap. Drinking too😂. So after a bit of calculation, it comes down to 1500 per person. So what we did for breakfast is we packed a theplas, cookies, snacks from our home and had a little bit of Goan food. Food in Goa is cheap.
So adding up all my 4 expenses it adds up to
500+2250+1500+400=4650. I take 350 rs as miscellaneous expenses. Note that I didn’t do shopping, there is nothing for shopping in Goa, to be honest.
