Goa, though carrying a rich colonial past, has attained fame as India’s centre of international tourism. Its present culture still reflects the association to its multi-cultural roots in the form of many churches, temples and synagogues that are located here. However, with the younger crowd, it is renowned as the destination to go to for a fun-filled and partying getaway.
For tourists who prefer natural experiences Dudhsagar Falls, Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary and Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary are good options to explore. Goa’s many beaches are places where one can indulge in watersports or simply lounge around in the shacks located there. Basilica of Bom Jesus, Shantadurga temple and Church of St. Francis of Assissi are few of the religious places one can visit while touring Goa.
Water sports and nightlife can be experienced at the beaches. Go on a river cruise, visit the churches and temples, enjoy wildlife and bird watching, and appreciate scenic beauty.
