Trip to Goa: One of the Most Beautiful Places in the World

By Hungry Bags Subscribe to RSS | April 23rd 2012 | Views:

Amongst the few places that have been bestowed with natural beauty, Goa nearly tops the list. Its pristine beaches that are lined beautifully by colossal palm trees offer heavenly experience! The medieval-age mansions & cathedrals also fascinate the tourists while the natural splendour of the state is also bewitching. A few words should also be said in praise of the effervescent culture that reminds of the colonial era and has its own distinct personality. Tourists take a trip to Goa also for the revelries of festivals & carnivals that are celebrated every year with intense fanfare and enthusiasm.

Beaches of Goa: No doubt, if you are looking for sea, sand & sun, then there’s nothing better for you than a trip to Goa. Goa’s beaches (close to 40 in total) will bamboozle you with the variety they serve. From the crowded ones to the quieter ones, from the picturesque ones to the party-conducive ones- every beach has something new to offer to the sea lover. It’s also through Goa packages that you can enjoy some of the most daring and adrenaline-pumping sports action like wind surfing, parasailing, water skiing, banana boating, sailing, boating, etc. Some of the popular Goa beaches are the Baga beach, Dona Paula beach, Palolem beach, Anjuna beach, Miramar beach, etc. You can also find good Goa hotels right in proximity of the beaches.

Goa sightseeing: Goa sightseeing is a lot about visiting the famous churches (Se Cathedral, Basilica of Bom Jesus, etc) and heritage sites like old Goa. History lovers will also find interesting museums, forts & old mansions that will keep them glued. Wildlife trips in Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary and other wildlife parks also fascinate the tourists. Foodies will find the best of all cuisines at some of the country’s greatest restaurants while party-hoppers will find the pulsating nightlife suitable for their taste.

Where to stay: You can find Goa hotels of all kinds as per your budget. You can also stay in resorts, inns, guest houses, beach huts and as a paying guest with a local family. Also, buy Goa packages, inclusive of Goa sightseeing, and a well-informed Goa travel guide, to enjoy a hassle-free trip to Goa.

Major Goa attractions: Some of the more popular Goa attractions are:

• Basilica of Bom Jesus

• Se Cathedral

• Church of our Lady of the Rosary

• Dudhsagar Falls (a splendid waterfall)

• Braganza House (a medieval age mansion)

• Mayem Lake

• Arvalem Waterfalls

• Kesarval Spring

• Carabolin Lake

• Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary

When to visit: Best time to plan a Goa trip is between October to April although the fantastic & friendly climate affords round-the-year tourism.

Local festivals: Winter carnival, All Saints Feast, Feast of St. Francis Xavier
