'''Vasco vasco da Gama''' is a port city in the west coast [[India]]n state [[Goa]]. Vasco -- as Goa's most populous overgrown town is referred to, and the adjoining Mormugao port are busy, dusty and mainly commercial centres today. Mormugao Port was
constructed in 1888, and is today one of the major ports of India. Between one-third of India's ore exports leave from here.
''For a list of trains, see the [[Goa|main article]]''.
===By Roadroad===
Vasco is a 30 km drive from [[Panaji]]. There are frequent bus services to towns in neighbouring Karnataka and Maharashtra. Also, all major services that connect Panaji to other cities usually have connections from Vasco.
The "Japananese Garden" up the hill in a place called Sada. It is in a hill top facing the ocean. The route to the garden from the Vasci Vasco station, gives a good view of the ships in the ocean in the goan ship yards on your right hand side. It is seated in a beautiful calm place. You can sit on top and watch the ocean, or walk down to a temple at the shore. There is a side walk that takes you to the navy apartments nearby. It is not a usual tourist spot. It is very quiet and calm in the day time and the ideal time to visit would be early mornings or evenings.
Beaches: [[Bogmalo]] is a small beautiful beach behind the airport. But the water can get very rough here. Velsao is a long fantastic beach a little far from the airport. But its absolutely lonely most of the time, nobody is around! It is not dangerous, but can be lonely!
*<see name="Naval Aviation Museum" alt=" behind the airport" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="">This is a great place to see vintage aircraft like the Sealands, Doves, Alizes, Seahawks, Vampires and Hughes Helicopters, along with the relatively newer Sea Harriers and a Super Constellation.</see>
* The Karma Plaza, next to the MMC building in the heart of town, has a fast food joint called Temptations. Serves the rolls, hamburgers, pastries, puffs, shakes, juices, tea, coffee and the like. Also has an icecream parlour attached. It is a hangout joint for the youngsters. This is the only joint open 24 hours. Very close to the railway station too.
