Goa is the best place to hangout.Probably everyone would like to visit goa.
During chritmas seasons,it is very difficult to get the hotel rooms as it is very costly during new year time.
Succulently hybrid and determinedly individual, Goa may just surprise you.
It's a shame Goa comes burdened with a reputation for louche living, because there's so much more to it than sun, sand and psychedelia. The allure of Goa is that it remains quite distinct from the rest of India and is small enough to be grasped and explored in a way that other Indian states are not.
Goa has enjoyed a prominent place in the travellers' lexicon since the heady days of the 1960s, but the (in)famous hippies have now been replaced by backpackers, Indian visitors and package tourists on two-week jaunts from Europe. The locals are relaxed and friendly, and skirts outnumber saris.
Goa's string of beaches are perfect for swimming and sunbathing, but there are also paragliding, parasailing and kite-surfing operators. There are several good scuba diving sites off the south coast, too. Yoga classes are always popular and ayurvedic massage and holistic healing are booming.
Goa loves its festivals - at times it can seem as though there are as many holidays as working days. Along with Hindu festivals such as Diwali and Holi, Goans celebrate myriad Christian festivals - not only Christmas and Easter, but also feast days specific to certain villages or parishes, as well as truly Goan events such as the Feast of St Francis Xavier at Old Goa. On top of this, more recent food and cultural festivals have been developed during the winter season (November to March) to capitalise on Goa's tourist numbers. Whereas most Christian festivals occur on set dates, Hindu festivals follow the lunar calendar and change from year to year.
Veteran Congress member Pratap Singh Rane was voted in as Goa's chief minister in 2005, replacing the Hindu-nationalist BJP's Manohar Parrikar. Politics in Goa, however, still continue largely to be waged on religious and caste lines, with ideology often taking a back seat.
Goa entered the millennium with a burgeoning tourist industry and growing environmental problems, but the government has shown some commitment to conserving its cultural and natural heritage, and moved to appeal to the Catholic minority as well as the Hindu 'vote bank'. Many Goans still hold grave concerns that ballooning tourist numbers (Goa sees around 1.38 million tourists each year) will have dire consequences on the fragile environment unless new initiatives are promptly implemented by the government. Major environmental issues include water shortages through overdevelopment, overfishing, and large-scale iron ore mining - almost half the ore exported annually from India comes from Goa.
The beginnings of a Goan independence movement were felt as early as the late 19th century, but began in earnest when the Portuguese monarchy collapsed in 1910. The new Portuguese elite, however, were as determinedly imperialist as their predecessors and countenanced no internal dissent or external Indian approaches until Indian PM Jawaharlal Nehru finally ordered an invasion on 17 December 1961, meeting little resistance despite the exhortations of the Portuguese dictatorship under Salazar.
Goa has, since independence, struggled to define its role within India on its own terms. Initial moves to assimilate the region into neighbouring states and to drop Konkani as the official regional language were resisted. Instead, in May 1987, Goa became India's 25th state and Konkani was recognised as one of the country's official languages.
Area :3700 sq km
The climate in Goa is not just an academic point; it affects the character, customs and culture. The main feature of the Goan climate is the monsoon between June and the end of September, which sees 250cm (98in) to 300cm (118in) of rain. During the two months preceding the onset of the monsoon, the humidity increases and the normally clear skies become hazy. High winds and lightning come just before the rain. Goans store enough firewood and food to last through the rains; fishing ceases almost entirely because of stormy conditions.
Surprisingly, the temperature throughout all of this drama remains fairly constant, varying from a maximum of about 29ºC (84ºF) in July to a maximum of 33ºC (91ºF) in May, and minimums for the same months of 24ºC (75ºF) and 26.5ºC (80ºF).
Transport in Goa
Getting there & away
The number of charter flights headed to Goa is increasing every year. The vast majority come from the UK and Europe. You can fly direct to Goa from the UK on a seat-only charter flight or on a package trip that includes accommodation. Be aware that it is illegal to enter on a scheduled flight and out on a charter flight, and vice versa: if you enter on a charter flight, you must also leave on one.
Dabolim Airport, Goa's only domestic and international airport, is in Dabolim, just outside Vasco da Gama. Numerous domestic airlines fly here from major Indian cities - as well as Indian Airlines and Jet Airways, new budget airlines such as Kingfisher Airlines and SpiceJet are providing competition.
The 760km (465mi) Konkan Railway links Mumbai with Goa (10hr) and south to Mangalore (15hr). Private companies still offer the dreaded super deluxe video buses from Panaji and Margao to Mumbai (15-20hr), Mysore (16hr) and Bangalore. Buses also head east from Goa to Hampi (11hr).
The best way to get around Goa is to hire a motorcycle or scooter, though be sure to carry the necessary paperwork (licence, registration and insurance) with you at all times because checks on foreigners are a lucrative source of baksheesh (kickbacks) for the police. If you don't know how to ride, motorcycle taxis are a legitimate and fun way of scooting between towns. Crowded buses ply between the main towns - they're dirt cheap and full of locals masquerading as sardines.
Regular taxis and autorickshaws can also take you around and between most towns. Bargain hard.
