A Perfect Holiday Destination
Goa, India’s smallest and most distinctive state, is located on the country’s western coast. It is renowned for its countless beaches, exciting nightlife, diverse cuisine, and world-heritage-listed architecture. While North Goa is the nightlife hub where all the touristy beaches, flea markets, and beach shacks are located, South Goa is the land of luxurious resorts and laid-back beach vibes. The laid-backness of Goa attracts as many international tourists as it does Indians.
A Tourist’s Paradise
The people of Goa are known for their warm hospitality to visitors and their celebration of numerous festivals throughout the year. Goa’s seafood is top-notch, and the city also boasts some of India’s best nightlife thanks to its many clubs, discos, and chic cafes. Goa is great for younger travellers on a budget because of the state’s cheaper alcoholic beverages. What makes the Goan architecture spectacular is its many whitewashed churches, crumbling forts, the yellow houses with purple doors, ochre coloured mansions and oyster shell windows.
Panjim, the centrally located capital, looks out over the serene Mandovi River, where the renowned floating casinos of Goa are berthed. Goa is home to beautiful beaches along its lengthy coastline of more than 100 kilometres. Anjuna and Arambol attract many foreign visitors, while Baga and Calangute are more popular with the Indian family crowd. South Goa’s beaches, such as Agonda and Palolem, tend to be less crowded than their northern counterparts.
