Soft sands, shimmering waters and swaying palms: that is Goa for most people. But there’s more to discover in this tiny yet shining slice of India. Its Colonial past has left it with glorious architecture, and has given its food and culture a distinctive flavour that drips with joie de vivre.
Goa International Airport in Dabolim lies just 29km from the state’s capital, Panjim. It is well connected by daily flights from international as well as Indian cities.
Madgaon Junction is the biggest railway station in Goa, and is well connected to major parts of the country.
You will find both air-conditioned and non-air conditioned buses plying regular services from across the country to Goa. Major stops include the Kadamba Bus Stand in Panjim, as well as the Mapusa and Madgaon bus stops.
Goa is linked to the Western coast of the country as well as southern states via a network of national and state highways. NH 17 connects it to Mumbai and Kochi.
