Goa

Situated about half way down India's western coastline on the Arabian Sea, Goa is both India's smallest and richest state. The port town of Old Goa was wrested away from the local sultans by the Portuguese, who held it for 451 years; the impressive architectural legacy they bequeathed has been recognized with UNESCO World Heritage status. Because of this history, Goa was also home to one of the world's first fusion cuisines; a prime example is vindaloo, an Indian approximation of carne de vinha d'alhos, wherein pork is cooked in palm vinegar and chilies.

Today, Goa has become prime destination for tourists from all over the world, with beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife, excellent restaurants, and diverse shopping. But even as the region continues to modernize, Goa's fascinating mix of colonial architecture, with red-tiled roofs, grand Catholic churches, and brightly painted houses remain as charming as ever.
