Get set to be swept off your feet as you step into this charming little state. Overly distinctive European influence pervades every pore of this region, be it in the architectural style of the buildings and monuments , be it the most popular cuisine or even in the lifestyle of the locals who completely believe in the mantra of living life to the king size.
Goa has something for everyone. Take a guided tour to the World Heritage Site, the Basilica of Bom Jesus, one of the biggest pilgrimage sites in Goa or zip across on a ‘pilot’ through shimmering rice paddies and lush spice plantations. Sip a glass of chilled wine amongst some great company on a river cruise or enjoy trance music at a rave party made popular by hippies. Throw caution to the winds and gamble away at a casino or for the more adventurous at heart, choose from a range of activities such as beach sports, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing or boogie boarding. Witness the burst of colours and culture, feet tapping music and buzzing energy at the annual Carnival or simply stroll down the cobbled streets lining picturesque houses where strains of the melancholy fado echo in your ears and the air is heavy with the scent of bougainvillea. So as a traveler, you never know as to which facet of Goa will mesmerize you but mesmerize you it surely will, in some way or the other.
