Introducing North Goa
In North Goa, Panaji, also know as Panjim, is a quiet achiever offering a glimpse into small town life for those who decide to hang their hat here for a spell. From here you can explore the still-Portuguese flavoured town of Old Goa, with its World Heritage listed churches and convents. The market town of Mapusa comes alive on Fridays with its raucous markets, and the beaches of Candolim and Sinquerim, though mainly visited by package-deal travellers and charter groups, offer some spectacular views.
