Everybody loves the beaches of Goa. But then again, Goa is a lot more than pretty beaches and snazzy clubs. Goa, unlike the rest of India, had its destiny shaped by 450 years of confluence of Portuguese and Indian traditions. This is a land dotted with ancient churches and tropical forests, just about everywhere you go. The people here are renowned for a contented style of living, much forgotten in today's fast paced life. The food combines the cooking methods of the Iberian Peninsula with the spicy flavours of India. Do unwind at some of the pristine beaches of the region, but also take a day out to explore some of the lesser known aspects of Goa.
