Goa is the smallest state of India. Formerly a Portuguese colony ,Goa was liberated on 19th December 1961.When you think of Goa, the first thought that comes to your mind is about the golden beaches, the tempting fragrance of fish and Feni..... wow!! Goa is a small but beautiful state populated with loving and caring people. Every visitor gets a warm welcome , making them feel at home. Goa's traditional drink is Feni. Feni is prepared by extracting cashew juice and later processing it. It has high medicinal value. Feni is also consumed as liquor and has a lot of demand in other states. A visit to Goa is incomplete without getting a taste of feni.
Apart from temples and churches another valued asset of Goa are the beaches. You can soothe your senses lying around or have a dip in the sea(Except during high tide or as the guide instructs!!).
