Goa tourism to roll out homestay, caravan policies in a month

A new homestay policy that seeks to take travellers into the heart of Goa and make them experience its "actual traditions" is expected to be rolled out in a month's time, Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte said, asserting that the new roadmap positions the coastal state as a 365-day destination "beyond beaches".

The minister said Goa Tourism's new caravan policy is also likely to be rolled out in a month's time.
"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.The vision of 'Goa Tourism 2.0' emphasises on 'quality over quantity' and responsible and sustainable practices that respect nature and are in consonance with local culture, " he added.
