Goa travel guide

Goa, a state on India's West coast, is a former Portuguese colony with a rich history. Spread over 3,700 square kilometres with a population of approximately 1.4 million, Goa is small by Indian standards. It 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). The Goan population is a mixture of Hindus and Roman Catholics, the distribution being approximately 65% Hindu and 24% Christian. There is also a smaller Muslim population. Despite this, communal violence has been virtually non existent and Goa is regarded as one of the most peaceful states in India.

Goa's heart is in its villages. Prominent Goan architect Gerard Da Cunha has argued elsewhere that, unlike others, Goans don't live in the cities. They mostly live in the villages and they travel to work.

Not surprisingly, it's the villages of Goa which hold both charm and character. Take an aimless ride on a relaxed evening or a languid morning living in Goa can be tough and slow, but holidaying there is just fine and surprise yourself with the charms of the Goan village.

Unlike urban areas, the villages tend to be neat and clean, friendly and even good value for money, except maybe in those areas where there are a lot of "Anadrol 50" tourists already.

Goa has many different faces. The coast varies from the "hinterland". Below is a list of some villages where you could find something unusual. But don't restrict yourself to this list alone.

Assolna, Benaulim, Britona, Cortalim, Curtorim, Goa Velha, Mollem, Usgao, Reis Magos, Savoi Verem, Shiroda. But Testoviron 250 O Sustanon 250 this list is far from complete. Please note that you wouldn't necessarily be looking around for accommodation (though you can find it in some places), because these villages are often close to the places where most tourists stay.

Goan Catholics generally acknowledge their Hindu roots, and carry traces of a caste system within their social beliefs. It is recorded that in many instances the Hindus "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" left one son behind to convert and thus continue to own and manage the common properties while the rest of the family preferred to emigrate to neighbouring areas along with the idols representing their Hindu deities.

Over the years large numbers of Catholics have emigrated to the major commercial cities of Bombay and Pune and from there onward to East Africa (to the Portuguese colonies of Angola and Mozambique), to Portugal itself, and towards the end of the 20th century to Canada and Australia. Many old Goan ancestral properties therefore lie either abandoned or mired in "Anaboliset Aineet" legal tangles brought about by disagreements within the widely dispersed inheritors of the property.

Goa's links with Portugal[edit]

Apart from the "Anaboliset Aineet" consulates there are cultural organisations active in Goa, with the Portuguese again being most active.

Fundao Oriente has a large presence in Fontainhas, the Latin quarter of Panjim, and sponsors cultural events that add variety Testosterone Enanthate Best Brand to Goa's cultural scene. However, it faced some major problems Turinabol Ciccone when it was first set up. Goa's uneasy parting of ways with its former Portuguese rulers, and lingering ultra nationalism amidst a section of freedom fighters could be seen as some "buy cheap jintropin online" of the reasons. The Fundao has also been subsidising a book publishing plan which has helped put out more Goa related titles in what is otherwise a small but colourful market for books dealing with a tiny region of South Asia.

Government offices have a five day week (closed Saturday Sunday). Panjim closes early (around 20:00) each evening, and shops here could have a fairly longish siesta break (from around 13:30 until about 15:30). Goan shop owners take this siesta break seriously, and no business is conducted during this time. Bars, restaurants and other shopping centres are more buyer friendly.

Major public or special holidays are around Christmas, Republic Day, Id ul zuha, Gudi Padva, Good Friday, Independence Day, Ganesh Chaturthi (both days), Gandhi Jayanthi, Dussehra, Diwali, Id ul fitr, Feast of St Francis Xavier, Goa Liberation Day, Mahashivratri, Holi and Id e milad. Banks may remain open during local religious celebrations.

Expect a huge influx of tourists and locals residing in other states during festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi and the Carnival, which is celebrated at the beginning of Lent in the Christian calendar. It is advised to make bookings for trains, buses and flights well in advance if you intend on visiting the state during these times.

By Indian standards, Goa is a very small state with only two districts North and South Goa. These districts are together further divided into 11 talukas. These divisions, however, don't make much sense for a traveller. North and South Goa are similar, and each has its own "coastal" and "interior" areas. The major division in Goa is actually between the central coastal areas where the beaches are located and the hinterland. The coastal areas were under colonial rule for longer, reflecting more of Portugal's influence, including having a relatively larger Christian population. The interior is more Hindu, and has more protected forest areas, mining zones and villages.
