Goa A Travelers Perfect Holiday Destination

Goa A Travelers Perfect Holiday Destination

Ever wondered how it would be to get away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded city life to a mesmerizing weekend destination full of beaches, serene churches and heavenly food alluring your taste buds! It couldn’t get any better than Goa. “Susegado” is something that the Goan people describe their way of life is, completely an evocative, exotic and an emotive word to portray their desire to take it easy and experience everyday through their senses. Such is their way of life. However, to sum up Goa in word is nearly impossible as it has so much to offer. Even after being the smallest Indian State, it is like the most precious center piece stone of a necklace. The reflections of the clear blue skies embark from the transparent emerald waters of the glittering beaches. Blissful skies, palm beaches, alluring locations and hospitable people all make Goa a traveler’s perfect holiday destination!

The best station you can get in at is Thivim as it is closest to most of the beaches and accessible to other areas as well! Once at the station, you can hire a cab which will cost you a minimum fare of Rs. 350/-

Buzzing Nightlife

As the sun goes down prepare yourself for a crazy nightlife in Goa. North Goa is particularly famous for its midnight parties, the trance music culture, the karaoke nights and the beach shacks.
