Goa is a favourite place for Bohemians and travelers who are out to make memories. The state has just now been an ideal party place for Indians and people from faraway lands. And why shouldn't it be: a vast stretch of coastline, some fantastic seafood cooked in shack restaurants, and a chance to get an introduction to Portuguese colonization. It would be understated if I say, 'Goa is a place that never ceases to surprise people.

For most people, where sun, sand, and sea are the perfect blend of reasons to back their bags, some of you might need something more to persuade. This is where the adventure sports of Goa come into the picture. Goa is an Eden for best adventure tours with some blood-pumping action. From snorkeling to water zorbing, hiking to waterfalls, or partying at hilltops.

Trek up the forts for the vast sea's panoramic landscape and circumscribing palm trees or walk along the streams. Ride elephants, feed monkeys, or kayak with crocodiles. Goa will give you a truly enriching and thrilling experience.
