nightlife and of course not to forget the three centuries old Portuguese
architecture. You can see the Portugal touch incorporated deep into the
Goan culture and day to day life. Also known as the land of churches, Goa
also presents brightly colored houses, lush green fields and a relaxed
attitude in the people of Goa. North and South Goa are drastically
opposite – the former being the commercial hub with Goan food shacks
and flea markets while the latter is a perfect destination if you are
looking out for some relaxation, private beaches, white sands mingling
with crystal clear blue water. Nature lovers can visit the wildlife and bird
sanctuaries here. The tallest waterfall of Goa, the divine Dudhsagar falls
are also not worth missing. Water sports, adventure activities, romantic
cruises, casinos – you can choose from a wide variety of activities to
entertain yourself. Take a stroll in the past by visiting the Portuguese
forts- Fort Aguada, Fort Chapora to name a few.

safari, be prepared to be mesmerized by these gentle sea creatures
playing about in the sea, performing twists to enchant the tourists. You

fisherman with their wares. Catch a glimpse of the brightly colored
kingfishers. As the cruise sails deep in the sea, admire the Fort Aguada.
