South India & Kerala - Goa (PDF Chapter)
This is the Goa chapter from Lonely Planet’s South India & Kerala guidebook.
Pint-sized Goa is much more than beaches and trance parties. A kaleidoscopic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures, sweetened with sun, sea, sand, seafood and spirituality, there’s nowhere in India quite like it.
- explore the historic Latin Quarter of Panaji, shopping and eating well in India’s most laid-back state capital

- restaurants & accommodation
