Goa Wins Lonely Planet Award, Plans Unique Monsoon Season Lures

Goa is one holiday destination whose splendour needs no certificate, but accolades do not hurt either!! Yes, the India’s biggest beguiling wonder has added yet another feather in it already crowded hat when the readers of the highly renowned Lonely Planet voted this coastal state as the 'Best Destination for Relaxation' as well as 'Best Value Destination in India'.

These laurels prove what most of the keen vacationers already know – that Goa is THE holiday destination of choice of many international tourists taking tickets on cheap flights to India. Indeed, the lure of Goan beaches has set many a beach bums on a frantic lookout for airline offering tickets on cheap flights to India!

On the other hand, Lonely Planet is no stranger to travel and tourism world either!

Continuing with good news for travellers taking Goa-bound flights to India, it is learnt that the Goan state authorities are all ready to promote the state as monsoon destination too. Monsoon is really not the best of times to plan holiday tour to Goa in case beach fun is the only agenda. However, state authorities have came up with plans to endorse region’s waterfalls, lush green forestlands and inland waterways as alternatives for the beaches.

While no one can argue that vacationers on flights to India during any other time of the year are likely to land up in Goa at some point or other, it is equally true that monsoon brings along with it a drop in the number of tourist inflow to the state.

If it works, it really would be hugely beneficial to Goan tourism and Indian travel industry as a whole.
