Stretches of silver sand wetted by a rush of blue waters, the sky mirroring the sea below, the strumming of guitars from distant taverns, white churches resting against green paddy fields and coconut groves, long nights spent over brewed feni, longer days of sun, sand and sea. In other words, --- Goa. Yet, there's lot more than sand and sea here. Goa is about style, haute couture and sophistication. The tiny west-coastal state is a slice of the Mediterranean. Being in Goa is as close as one can get to being abroad. No wonder then that the tourists one sees here are international and from all walks of life. There are lords and ladies, bigwigs from Hollywood and Bollywood, businessmen from the world over who seem to find Goa an irresistible place to come to again and again for a holiday.
