The magnificent ocean touches you with gamboling waves of Arabian Sea. The Marine Drive is not just another drive that you could pass without noticing. The waves hitting the ground and people sitting around is a magical site to witness. Besides, being the most crowded city with bustling nooks, towering buildings, concrete structures, the city has a lot of heritage sites, affluent history and some untold stories clung to it. Artifacts and remnants of Indus Valley Civilization, Guptas, Mauryas, Rashtrakutas, Chalukyas and others could also be seen in Mumbai City.

So much has been discovered and so much yet remains to be discovered in this small Indian state. The presence of Portuguese rule in this state is quite prominent and remains of colonial era could be spotted here and there in parts of Goa. Home to a number of Catholic Churches, happening Beaches and colonial streets, Goa is one modern city with heart clung to its villages and rural areas.
