Hyderabad to Goa – Train

There are two trains that run between Hyderabad and Goa. One starts from Kacheguda (KCG) and other from Hyderabad Deccan (HYB). Trains take a longer reach to reach Goa hence it is advisable to take the bus or flights.

Facts about Goa
Goa is quite a different a place as compared to rest of India, thanks to the Portuguese influence (~450 years). Life here is laid back. The major professions here are fisheries, mining, and tourism. Goans are quite easy going and friendly. Goa is one of the richest states of India with per capita income, ~3 times more than India’s average and ~7 times more than poorest state Bihar (2017).
Goa is generally relatively safe for tourists however one has to be careful while dealing with strangers. The official language of Goa is Konkani, however English, Hindi, Marathi and Kannada are widely spoken.
Recommended App and Booking Sites
Hotel Booking Sites: I first look for a decently located hostel or hotel in booking.com which has 8+ rating and 50+ review and then check its price in MakeMyTrip and book accordingly. I do find some hotel prices are very high in booking.com and comparatively low at MMT. Hotelscombined also gives a decent deal from time to time.
Trekking Trips: You can join any such group and take part in trekking events. Goa Hiking Association and Youth Hostel Association of India – Goa are popular clubs here for trekking and adventure activities.
