Take a train ride for the Goa carnival this year


The popular carnival in Goa is held in February every year and involves a public celebration in the form of parades of gaily coloured floats, with dancers and indulgence in food, drink and general merriment, and is led by the portly figure of King Momo, who symbolically opens the festivities.
If you are planning a holiday this year around the same time of the popular Carnival festival, a prominent feature in Goa’s tourism calendar, you can grab a train ride in style.

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) along with the Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) have put together a special Carnival Charter Coach travelling into Goa, along with a specially designed coach for carnival lovers, according to Goa’s Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar.
