About Travel to Goa

Goa is the smallest state in India in terms of land size and the fourth smallest in terms of population. Goa, however, is very successful in terms of attracting tourists on account of its many beaches and unique cultural heritage. Goa was a Portuguese colony from 1510 to 1961 and this long period of colonisation has left an indelible mark on the state’s architecture, cuisine, religious beliefs and the way that the state’s inhabitants think. The people of Goa have a reputation for a relaxed outlook on life and this is evidenced in a number of ways including a much lower level of inter-community conflict than in other parts of India. Whilst over 60% of the state’s population is Hindu, people of the Christian faith make up around a quarter of the population. Goa is also unique amongst Indian states for small size of its major towns, none of which have a population above 100,000 permanent residents. The state also has around 400 village spread largely along its coastline and to a lesser extent in the inland area.

Goa is split into North and South Goa. The main railway hub Madgoan, also known as Margao, is located near the border between these two districts. Panaji, also known as Panjim, in North Goa is the largest city in the state. The most interesting town in terms of historic architecture, however, is Old Goa. There are plenty of beaches to choose from. The most popular are Dona Paula Beach (near Panaji), Arambol Beach (near Mapusa) and the nearby Vagator Beach, known for its dance parties.
