Goa - Pearl of the Orient

Goa is the smallest state in India. But it is also the most popular in terms of tourism, with the amount of visitors being almost equal to the local population during peak season, and accounting for over 12 percent of all foreign visitors arriving in the country.

Beautiful white sands, swaying palms and a clear blue sea first come to mind when the destination is mentioned. And a visitor to the region immediately understands why, as Goa offers more than 105 kilometers of unspoilt coastline, including some of the finest beaches in the world, several luxurious internationally managed resorts.

Beyond the beaches, visitors are invited to discover historic cities and picturesque villages; wildlife parks and bird sanctuaries; and the architectural splendour of its temples, churches and old houses -- features that have made Goa a favourite with travellers from around the world.

The state capital is Panaji (Panjim), located on the banks of the Mandovi River. Other major towns include Vasco, Margao, Mapusa, and Ponda. The main airport is located at Dabolim near Vasco. It services both national and international flights. An intra-state and inter-state bus network is also available, although groups are advised to make their own arrangements.
