The minister of Goa Tourism said, “Goa has always been a preferred destination for tourists, known for its beautiful beaches, and we are known for our party life, more of a different culture. But Goa is much more than that… and unfortunately in the past, we have not been able to get that thought changed, that perception about Goa,” Reportedly, the new caravan policy conveys operators to run a recreational van, so that visitors are not constrained by itinerary as they are in a hotel stay. It will also include setting up a caravan park where the plan is to provide sanitation services, utilities, vehicle charging points, and more.
Talking about the homestay policy, the minister said it goes parallel with the new vision of ‘Goa beyond beaches’ and will allow the tourists to travel into the rich hinterland away from the coastal area. “This will take tourists right into the heart of Goa and make them experience the actual traditions and culture of Goa” In the first phase of the policy, the government will make 100 houses located in the rural belt including Bicholim.
