Goa

After spending a few days in Mumbai, we decided to take a trip to the sunny beaches of Goa located 700 km away. Read about our excursion here.

Goa, a former Portuguese colony, is India's smallest state by area and the fourth smallest by population. The state is located in South West India and has Panaji as capital. While Konkani is Goa’s official language, Marathi is also widely used in the state.

Celebrated for its beaches, heritage architecture and places of worship, Goa's primary industry is tourism. The land away from the coast is rich in minerals making mining the second largest industry.
