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!.
