People love visiting this coastal paradise, it is a popular honeymoon spot and one cannot deny that Goa is one place in India which has visitors from all over the world. Today, Goa has one of India’s highest per-capita incomes, with farming, fishing, tourism and iron-ore mining forming the basis of its economy.
From the quietest beaches where you can even hear yourself breathe, to the busiest flea markets where you can’t hear yourself talk. From the most honest, fresh and yummy local cuisine to the most authentic international flavors for the epicurean-explorer, you find it all here.
Even a one-day visit to Goa can be an experience that you will never forget. If you have only one day to explore Goa’s many amusements, here’s what I suggest:
Basilica of Bom Jesus, located in old Goa, this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This church was consecrated in May 1605 and holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier.
Se Cathedral, Located in Old Goa, India, the largest church in India, dedicated to Catherine of Alexandria. It is one of the oldest and most famous religious buildings in Goa and is one of the largest churches in Asia.
Shantadurga Temple is a large temple complex, a small laterite mud shrine was built at first. The mud-shrine was converted into a beautiful temple whose foundation stone was laid in 1730 and the temple was finished in 1738.
The Casino Goa is a live casino located offshore in Panaji in Goa. This is fine place to spend your time with some legal gambling. Who knows, you might even get lucky!
Once all this is done, the best way to spend the rest of the evening would be to head to Anjuna beach. Enjoy the bliss of a sunset while strolling around the beach with wet feet and jubilant minds. The quiet of the sea is just the perfect way to relax a troubled mind. The beach is filled with restaurants that serve both traditional Goan cuisines as well as international cuisines. It’s great to just spend the night chilling on the sand, gazing at the start filled sky.
