"Chill at the Beach Capitol"
The capitol of Goa, the city was named Panjim by the Portuguese that had arrived here way back and their mark on the city is evident throughout Panjim's streets and buildings and let's not forget its awesome churches. Lying on the Peninsula, the Mandovi river calls Panjim its home and cruise boats are visible floating on top of it in the most magnificent manner. Hosting numerous cafes, street bars and Latin Quarters, Panjim is just lit, almost always! A city of India that is heavily influenced by Portugal, what's not to love about the place! Panjim is one of those places that is full of life but yet maintains its composure.
