India has been rising as a holiday destination lately and Goa has been emerging as the favourite in India. It’s a popular hotspot in India, which formerly was a Portuguese colony on the country’s west coast. The momentous city of Margao still reveals the enriching influence of the Portuguese, who first landed in the early 16th century as merchants and conquered it soon thereafter.
Goa is touted as the capital of holiday destinations in India. Goa has two main tourist seasons, winter and summer. Foreign tourists flock Goa during the winters to enjoy the easy breeze and ideal temperatures, while tourists from all over India visit Goa in the summer to beat the heat.
