Goa Trips, Tours & Vacation Packages
Goa is a state located on the western coast of India, along the Arabian Sea. Covering only a span of 3700 sq. km, Goa is India’s smallest state in the area on India tours.
Formerly a Portuguese colony for almost 500 years till 1961, Goa includes a blend of Portuguese, Indian, and Islamic architecture in temples, houses, and buildings.
With a mixture of mostly Hindus and Roman Catholics, Goa is very different from other Indian states. The people are very easy-going, and Goa is considered to be India’s most peaceful state to be enjoyed on a trip to India.
The coastal areas of Goa feature beautiful beaches and have more of a colonial influence with their picturesque villages and tall, white-washed churches, and red-tiled houses. Inland has more of a Hindu influence and features various wildlife sanctuaries on Indian tours.
Rich in its bohemian lifestyle, Goa attracts many artists, painters, and architects, and includes many art galleries and museums to visit. Goa Chitra Museum contains the largest collection of ethnographic artifacts ever assembled in one place, whereas Christian religious art can be seen in Old Goa.
Goa attracts many visitors for its nightlife and entertainment, hosting various festivals. In February, the Carnival celebrations in Panaji, Goa’s capital city, feature a colourful parade and are followed by other lively celebrations throughout the year.
Famous for its excellent beaches, churches, and temples, the state of Goa makes an ideal destination for fun and relaxation on a trip to India.
