About Goa
Goa is a small state situated in the western region of India, with a population of
approximately 1.5 million. It is a very popular destination both for domestic and
international tourists. In the last few years, it is assumed that around 3000
foreigners have purchased property in Goa and there may be a few hundreds
who keep coming back every year for their annual holiday.

Goa has a strong influence in terms of the Portuguese culture that is evident in
the dress sense and general behaviour. People are generally warm, friendly and
hospitable. Goa is perhaps the only state in India which has casinos operating in
small cruise ships and hotels. Walking along the beautiful beaches of Goa is
undoubtedly any tourist’s delight. Besides, there are many places of
architectural interest including temples and churches.

Goa is principally famous for its cuisine, mainly sea food with the Goan curry and
rice being the most popular. However, one can also choose to satisfy their taste
buds with a wide choice of Indian dishes served across hotels in the city.

Goa is in essence, a visitor’s true getaway …..
