Goa - Paradise Revisited

Goa, the erstwhile Portuguese colony on the west coast of India is a haven for leisure seekers from all over the world. Over 100 kms of unspoiled sandy beaches washed by the Arabian sea, secluded bays and a lattice of streams & rivers winding through lush green rainforest truly make Goa a paradise.

The warm and sunny weather for most parts of the year is matched only by the warmth and hospitality of Goa's people. The tourist friendly, easy going and fun loving Goan people make for an ambience that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.

Local and international cuisine make Goa a gourmet's delight. Goa also has a vibrant entertainment and night life scene and is the home of trance music now popular the world over. This, coupled with low costs, tourist friendliness and very low crime rate, make Goa one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world.

Goa attracts over 3 million tourists a year from all over the world. Beginning as a hippy paradise in the 60s, today over 600 charter flights fly directly into Goa's international airport from all over the world. Many foreigners who came for a few weeks decided to stay on, adding to the cultural diversity and international community that makes up Goa.
