Visibly different from the rest of the country, Goa is known for its silver beaches, churches, crazy parties and lively nightlife. A state on the western coast of India, Goa still has the everlasting marks of being a Portugal colony. The colorful houses, lush green fields and charming villages of Goa are ideal for a cool morning walk or evening stroll. What makes it even more charming is that north and south Goa are extremely different - the north is a cultural hub with traditional eateries and markets, while the south is the abode of 5-star hotels and private beaches with white sand and clear blue water.
Goa has many more attractions, such as spice gardens, gorgeous cruise parties, dolphin sites, temples and more.
