Goa, located on the western coastline of the Indian subcontinent, is one of the most thriving and vibrant tourist hubs of India. Lined by golden beaches where the mountain ranges meet the Arabian sea, Goa is also the land of culture, spiritualism and culinary delights marked by the fusion of ancient Indian tradition and Portuguese colonial culture. Steeped in history dating back to prehistoric times, Goa was under Portuguese control from the early 16th century and attained full statehood in 1987.
The Dabolin Airport lies 29 kilometres from the state’s capital, Panjim. It is well connected by daily flights from Chennai, Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Cochin and Bangalore and handles more than 8 million passengers annually. Multiple options of inland travel are available from the Airport.
The nearest metropolis Mumbai is well connected with Goa by air and surface transport that includes rental cars, buses and the railway. A convenient and inexpensive way of getting from Mumbai to Goa is by train, via the Konkan Railway that operates multiple trains between Mumbai and Goa on a daily basis. Railway travel between these two cities is popular because of easy connectivity and the exotic beauty of the western ghat mountain ranges. The fastest train connecting these two cities is the 22119 Mumbai CST – Karmali Tejas Express, a semi-high speed train, which completes the trip in 8.5 hours and travels by daytime.
