Goa Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Goa Overview

Of all the colonists India has had, Goa was the sole territory of the Portuguese, whose cultural influences have trickled down and embedded themselves in the roots of the region, and can be seen even today in Goa and amongst Goans world over. It’s not just the sun, sand and serenity, Goa is bright and colourful to look at, but it’s on closer observation that the fine detailing and intricate layers of the place come to the forefront. Known for its beaches, party scene, hippie hang-out and a shift of lanes from the fast track to ambling along with afternoon naps, Goa is on almost everyone’s to-visit destination list. Come to Goa for its beaches, the delicious food, letting your hair down, to rest, and most of all to understand how living is so much better than just being alive. But that’s not all. The culture of Portugal is not just prevalent in the lifestyle, food and arts, but also the architecture. The old city has pretty pearls that masquerade as buildings, houses and churches that draw attention to the history that is embedded within its walls. Goa is India’s smallest state by area, and fourth smallest by population. On the Konkan Coast, it lies south of Maharashtra and west and north of Karnataka, with the Arabian Sea lapping to its east. Panaji, Vasco Da Gama and Margao are three of the main cities in this State. The first is the capital, the second is the largest city and the third is a historical hub. The beaches are largely divided into North and South with the busier ones being in the North where the party scene is, and the quieter, clearer, less populous ones to the South. Goa also has two main seasons: winter and summer. In the former, there is a greater European influx, while the summers see more Indians, from all over the country.

Local Language

Almost everyone in Goa speaks English. Konkani is the mother tongue for most people, and Marathi and Hindi are also widely spoken.
