Description

Introduction

Goa is about a way of life. And Goans have a nice sounding word for it: susegad. Translated loosely, it means, 'just chill.' If you're looking for a laidback beach holiday, this tiny emerald on the west coast of India is your dream place in the sun.

Goa has lured people from across the globe for centuries. Even before the arrival of the Portuguese in the early 16th century, it was a coveted trading post. Today, its stunning coastline, quaint towns and charming villages, and its unique blend of Eastern and Western cultures have made it the tourism capital of India, drawing an estimated 2.5 million visitors each year.

Take a walk on the golden sands, enjoy a drink under the swaying palms, amble along the streets, try out exotic cuisine from around the globe, and visit the historic forts and ancient churches of this former Portuguese colony. Goa is your destination for all seasons – with exciting nightlife thrown in!.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
The statue has arrived today. It so beautiful, lots of details. I am very happy and will order from you shop again.
Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
Phyllis, USA
