Sometimes a small word becomes the reason for your happiness. And one such is “Holiday”. At different ages, our holidays have various definitions. When we were kids, we had many sports to play, kid movies to enjoy, storybooks to read. But as we get older, this definition grows with us. Thoughts change completely. At teenage, I used to use my holidays to party all day with my friends. And at this age, when I hear the word holiday, the first thing I think is that I would definitely be going to go somewhere. Visiting new places always at every age gives tremendous joy. So get out of the monotonous daily life and go to a new place to live to feel that environment.

If somebody asks me about that one destination, where I would like to be again and again. Then for India, I have only one name, Goa. Despite being the smallest state of India, Goa has tremendous beauty. This attracts people from all over the world. Holidays for me mean relaxation and fun. And no need to say that Goa is the perfect combination of both. The name makes me very happy, excited, and energetic. Portuguese influence has also made Goa care traditions. Besides the beaches, there is a distinct sense of courtesy between the people and the houses in the streets. This always draws Goa closer to heart. Your vacation can never be better without food and drink. Goa has always been famous for its seafood, cheap booze, and continental food with good music.

Go Goa…

Goa has long been a siren call for travellers. India’s top holidays draw harnessed, packaged and sold to the 7 million tourists that visit here for one purpose to enjoy the fullest: to eat, drink and get the party. There is no off-season. Even in the rainy season, tourists like to go to Goa. And the beauty of Goa enhances more during the monsoon. Not only that, during monsoon, Goa tourism becomes much more budget-friendly.
Apart from Goa beaches and side seeing, the most exciting part is cafe culture. There are so many good cafes all over Goa. It depends on the situation near the sea or nature. But whichever you chose, all are perfect for taking care of your mood at any time.
Goa does not have an Ola Uber taxi service like other cities in India. But you can get scooters and bikes for the whole day. I think the bike is perfect for going around the local area in Goa. It is that destination in India where no one will ever talk about your outfit. So go Goa as you like.
