Known for its beautiful beaches, relaxed atmosphere and tropical spice plantations, Goa is a state in western India with a coastline stretching along the Arabian Sea. Blending Indian and Portuguese cultures, its colonial history is apparent in its cuisine and preserved 17th-century churches. There are also crumbling forts, mournful fado music and stunning cathedrals in Old Goa. Overlooking the Mandovi River, Goa’s capital of Panaji has floating casinos and cruise boats dotting the water. The narrow streets in the Latin Quarter feature yellow and ochre houses rubbing shoulders with bookshops, bars, artsy boutiques and shopping malls.

4. Climate changes between Dubai and Goa

Summer temperatures can climb to 104°F and higher and rarely drop below 86°F. Winters are also warm, as temperatures reach highs of 73°F and lows of around 57°F.

5. Culture differences and need-to-know
Visitors to Goa in India need to apply for a visa in advance of travel. Before traveling to Dubai in the UAE, visitors need to check visa requirements and the length of time that passports need to be valid. For nationals of countries such as Argentina, Singapore, New Zealand and the UK, no advance visa arrangements are necessary. They receive a 30-day-visit visa free of charge.
Before traveling to Goa, passengers should ensure that they are up-to-date with routine vaccinations such as diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps and rubella. Most will need Hepatitis A and typhoid vaccinations, as there is a risk of these diseases across India. There are no current extra vaccinations needed for Dubai, but before traveling, it is important to check that this is still the case.
With luxury shopping, glitzy skyscrapers and lively nightlife, Dubai has much to offer the visitor, including the 830-meter-high Burj Khalifa. At the foot of the structure lies the Dubai Fountain, which has jets and lights choregraphed to music. The souqs around Dubai Creek, the original heart of the city, is where traders from all over the Middle East come to sell their wares. On the other hand, Goa’s biggest draw is its almost-uninterrupted string of beautiful beaches stretching along the Arabian Sea. They have developed their own reputations and personalities since the hippie days of the 1960s.
