GOA

Goa is synonymous to tourism for avid travelers coming from all across the globe. Owing to its Gothic Style Churches and Catholic Cathedrals, far spread sunny golden beaches, spell-binding architecture and thrilling night life, Goa is a place for all to be.

Looking Back in the History

Talking about the history, Goa can be traced back to 20,000 to 30,000 years. A tribe of people called Sumerians had set their first step in this place around 2200 BC. Goan culture, in the earlier times was greatly influenced by Indo-Aryan people, and also by the Dravidians from the Deccan. Much later in the year 1510, Portuguese took Goa under their governance.  Portuguese had built some of the largest churches of Asia.


Famous Beaches

One visits this city of ocean for an obvious magnetism of the beaches.
Baga beach is situated in North of Goa, which is also called true Goa for its representation of authentic Goan heritage. Baga beach offers all the party lovers, a breathtaking experience. All the nights and days at Baga are filled with immense exhilaration. From authentic Goan cuisine to immaculate art and culture, Baga has something for everyone.

If you wish to get away from the party scene and relax, Goa offers that too, with its magical sea sides, Morjim beach and Mandrem beach. Foreign tourists are reminded of Caribbean at these moderately warm and calm beaches, with people just lazing around for the sun.
