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.

Outdoor activities: With Goa tour packages, you can indulge into some interesting outdoor activities like

• Beach sports (sailing, paragliding, boating, wind surfing, water skiing, swimming etc)

• Cruise ride at a luxury yacht

• Bird watching at Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary

• Wildlife outing at Bondla wildlife sanctuary

• Shopping at Goa’s traditional/local markets

Where to eat: Goa takes pride in its array of restaurants of varying ranges. You can eat at eateries, food joints, stalls, restaurants or even at Goa hotels. Do enjoy the local seafood and the traditional rice! Also, you can easily order popular global cuisines including Thai, Italian, Chinese, etc. The food is hygienic and delicious!

Where to stay: There are plenty of Goa hotels of both modest range and 5-star rated ones. You can stay at cheap hotels or expensive resorts as per your budget. Also, it will be prudent to buy Goa tour packages to book hotels in advance and avoid last minute hassles.
