Goa, India

  • Goa is a state in western India with coastlines stretching along the Arabian Sea. A former Portuguese colony with a rich history, the state has a unique mix of Indian and Portuguese cultures and architecture that attracts an estimated 2.5 million visitors each year (including about 400,000 foreign tourists).

    Since the 1960s, Goa has been attracting a steady flow of visitors - first the hippies and returning expatriate 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 those who attend seminars and conferences in Goa.
