Alluring Vistas of Goa

Written By: Manoj Menon

Goa comes very close to a true tropical holiday experience, something that many other coastal cities and towns in India have found difficult to simulate.

One of the first things you notice about Goa is how heavily influenced it is by the Portuguese way of life, primarily because it was under Portuguese rule well into the sixties.

The city attracts travelers from the world over, different countries and they all swear by the experience, comparing it to the likes of Bangkok, Ibiza and other prominent beach destinations.
