Goa may spark up images of white sand beaches, sunny day and trance parties, but there is far more to this western state of India. A kaleidoscopic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures sprinkles with sun, sea, sand, delicious food and Indian spirituality, there truly is no place like it.

Holidays to Goa… just that word is enough is conjure up visions of idyllic beaches, night long beach parties, lazy hammocks and delicious prawn curries. Goa is unarguably the party destination of India. Every New Year’s Eve, thousands and thousands of travellers flock to this small state to savour the beauty and energy that Goa offers. But Goa tour is not just about the parties. The Portuguese architecture, Christian culture, smiling locals, beautiful churches and lush landscapes make it a natural haven.

Goa: from pristine beaches to unique culture and history

Each year, thousands of travellers travel to this small state to celebrate New Year in an enchanting festive setting. But Goa is not just one big party: Goa is blessed with incredible architecture inherited from Portuguese settlers, diverse religious beliefs including a strong Christian influence that is felt in the many churches, as well as lush landscapes that form a heavenly paradise.

Deserted or beaming with people, the beaches or Goa may follow each other but they are in no way alike. A visit to Goa usually evokes thoughts of relaxing on the beach and watching the sun rise (because you haven’t gone to bed, not because you’re awake that early!), but a trip to Goa would not be complete without cultural visits to the Basilica of Bom Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or exploring the many vestiges of forts such as Chapora, Aguada or Corjuem.

Whether your looking for an active holiday or a relaxing vacation, one this is for certain: your holiday to Goa will certainly make you want to come back! Contact us today and speak to one of our travel experts based in South India who will design and organize the trip of your dreams.
