Goa - the best place for a honeymoon, parties and entertainment
Goa received the Indian "Oscar" for tourism in 2012 in three categories: best place for a honeymoon, the best place to party, the best place for entertainment.
The prestigious awards of the India's Best Places Awards are given annually by the leading travel magazine "Travel + Leisure in India and South Asia" on the basis of an online readers' poll. Prizes were presented at a glittering ceremony held in Mumbai in the spring of 2013
Moreover, Goa was awarded the second place in the category of best family and wedding destinations in India. According to the State Minister for Tourism Dilip Parulekara this recognition comes as the result of the efforts of his department to improve the conditions for events such as weddings on the beach and music festivals.
The Department is proud of the innovative marketing and advertising of tourism, as well as its newly formed IRB police, which aims to ensure the safety of tourists. Thanks to the measures taken by the tourism authorities in Goa, it attracted in 2012 more Indian and foreign tourists.
The minister is confident that next year Goa will win the first place in the category of family and wedding tourism. He will pay attention that the Department will focus on the construction of tourism infrastructure and attracting public and private funds for its development.
