There are several weekend travel packages near Mumbai and Pune for city dwellers. You will get your pick of destinations to choose from. But as far as travel packages go, a Goa vacation package is the unique blend of a lazy and crazy holiday. Whether you are a corporate executive, who is out of town every weekend, or a group of friends who have finally got the time together, Goa is simply the perfect weekend holiday! Here is what makes a Goa holiday special:

The Lazy Culture

Goan culture comes with a unique fusion of ancient Malwani lifestyle with Portuguese culture. The local drink, Pheni, and seafood cuisine has Malwani fragrance and magic. On the other hand, a local siesta and Christian holidays reflect the influence of the rulers of the 16th century. The heavenly blend of churches and temples thrives in this land. Simplicity of the local culture creates the perfect backdrop for a fun weekend. With clean beaches, delicious food, relaxed daily life and simple and warm people, Goa is a wholesome experience that anyone can enjoy.

The Crazy Fun

This is one amazing holiday destination – where pubs are just as popular as the beaches. Water sports are just as exhilarating as beach parties and all the beaches get as many visitors as the churches. Each beach has its own persona and unique story to share. Some have great carnivals whereas others are well known for adventure sports like jet skiing, parasailing, sailing, boating, etc. Some beaches are perfect for dreamy and magical night parties while some cosy ones are simply divine for couples heading out to enjoy romantic walks or the sunset views.  You can choose to enjoy a Goa vacation package of your choice, which lets you explore beaches, water sports and Goa experiences of your choice.

You can also explore the charm of the state any time of the year. But, you may not be able to enjoy the beach games and water sports on a rainy day in the monsoon. Though, it is not entirely predictable, you can still enjoy the clubbing culture, night market and fish curry that locals serve wholeheartedly. The irresistible charm of this state lures in city dwellers because the environment of this Goa holiday is exactly opposite to the pressure of over-extended working hours which corporate executives have to face on an everyday basis.
