Goa

In the Basilica of Bom Jesus in Goa, you can see the saint Francis Xavier as he was when he died in the 16th century. If you want to catch a taxi but still take in the views and the fresh air, Goa is the only place in which you can take a 'Pilot' – a motorcycle taxi service, in which you can pay to get a lift to where you need to be.

Ruled by the Portuguese for four hundred years until its liberation in 1961, Goa still has Portuguese influences throughout the country. The varied culture and architecture of Goa are protected, with multiple temples to visit.
