White sands, swaying palms & spices

Goa is India with a hint of Portuguese flavor. They came in the 16th century, made a fortune in the spice trade, and refused to leave until 1961, 14 years after India as a whole obtained independence from Britain.

Echoes of their stay still whisper through the swaying palms, carried on soft breezes along the white sands for which Goa is justly famous—evocative but crumbling architecture, richly decorated churches, and the custom of siesta, eagerly embraced by the local population.

Head to the surrounding countryside for typical Indian villages, spice plantations, and a wetland sanctuary for an exhilarating bird-watching experience.
