Goa tour packages: Take the hottest holiday destination at Goa
Kerala, Rajasthan, Ladakh and Goa are the hottest holiday destinations of India. If Kerala is known for its backwaters, Rajasthan for its palatial grandeur and Ladakh for its adventure sports, then Goa is famed for its fabulous beaches and verdant natural beauty. Regardless of the fact whether you are rich or poor, Indian or foreigner, black or white- you will enjoy your trip to Goa and will get lifelong memories. Goa, a small state in the south-western India, with over 40 beaches to its credit, is the ‘beach capital’ of the country. Goa tour packages are demanded by both Indian and offshore tourists because the place has an interesting history, an old world charm, plenty of sightseeing options, lip-smacking food and a colourful culture tinged with cosmopolitanism.
Goa sightseeing: A trip to Goa has lots to offer. The beaches are great hangout zones even during the night for the party animals and sea addicts. During daytime, you can do all sorts of activities at beaches and at evening, you can get forlorn admiring the sunset.
Walk out of the beaches and a beautiful culture awaits you. The churches & cathedrals are old and magnificent. The 16th century mansions like the Braganza House evoke nostalgia and make the history-lover curious. The museums, forts and old buildings remind of the colonial era. Then there are naturally beguiling sites like the Dudhsagar Falls, Kesarval Spring, Mayem Lake, Carabolin Lake and Arvalem Falls. The quiet hamlets, the fishing villages and the serene ambience add to the charm! Yet the nightlife is vibrant and gets wilder during carnivals and festivals.
