Overview

Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Goa, India a former Portuguese colony with a rich history. Goa is a hub of tourism in India.

With a population of 1.4 million, Goa has a unique mix of native and Portuguese cultures and architecture that attracts an estimated 2.5 million visitors each year (including about 400,000 foreign tourists).

Panaji, Goa's state capital (also known as Panjim, Ponnje or Pangim) is one of the most charming cities in India. From the 1960s, Goa has been attracting a steady flow of visitors - first the hippies and returning expat Goans, then the charter tourists (starting with the Germans in 1987), pilgrims visiting Catholic and Hindu shrines, those opting to settle in Goa as their home, people going for medical treatment, and a growing number of visitors that attend seminars and conferences in Goa.

Goa is visibly different from the rest of India, owing to Portuguese rule which isolated it from the rest of India for 451 years.
