Nobody is going to honk behind your wheels, you do not have to wait for hours in a long traffic queue to commute from one place to another, and so on. The Goans believe in this relaxed and enjoyable pace of living. This is the main secret of the place that Goa is.
The Goan cuisine is delicious and the beaches are just amazing. Sparkling water, sunbathing people, swaying palms — what more you could wish for in order to refresh yourself. As the sun sets and the evening kicks in, the music sets in and the parties begin. For the young and the old alike, Goa is the place to be at. Whether it is the Anjuna Beach or the Baga Beach, everywhere you would experience a different kind of ambience. Beaches in South Goa are quieter than those in North Goa. It is up to you what do you like more on a vacation – the quiet or the fun.
