Mumbai, Nov 26: Goa has continued to be the destination of choice for travellers and has bagged the 'Favourite Leisure Destination in India' award by Conde Nast Traveller India.
"Right now, we are focused on improving our infrastructure and other related facilities, so that Goa continues to remain a favourite," Goa Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar said in a release.
The fact that Goa offers so much for tourists makes it an easy choice when it comes to planning a holiday, Goa Tourism Director Ameya Abhyankar said.
"We are conscious of the fact that tourism is poised for growth in the country and we are taking steps to ensure that Goa leads the way for this growth," he added.
Goa Tourism is also planning to introduce services like sea-planes, heli-tourism and has recently started a 'Hop On, Hop Off' bus tour facility during the ongoing St. Francis Xavier Exposition in old Goa.
"The fact that these awards have been endorsed by readers, who are or have been tourists in Goa, adds credibility to the fact that our state continues to be the destination of choice for travellers in and out of India," Goa Tourism Development corporation (GTDC) Chairman Nilesh Cabral added.
