Located on the western coast of India, Goa is surrounded by the Arabian Sea on the west, Terekhol River on the north and Western Ghats on the east and North Canara State on the south. Sizzling sunshine reflecting from the white sand, wave upon wave of azure waters, green paddy fields, coconut groves and much more - welcome to Goa, the land of beauty, colour and history.
Exotic and yet creating a feeling of nostalgia, Goa has a unique blend of the eastern and western, a fusion of social standards, culture, religion, beliefs and behaviour. The dominance of Portuguese for 450 years is displayed prominently in the many architecturally impressive structures, the Roman Catholism and the local preference for meals rich in fish and meat. Be it Diwali, Durga pooja or Christmas and Palm Sunday, the religious festivities are celebrated with equal fanfare and joy. Goa is different from other Indian states because of another reason; the locals enjoy alcohol, whether it's beer, toddy or feni.
