SMS Goa Tourism
Information on tourist
and cultural hot spots - forts, beaches, heritage sites, religious sites,
waterfalls and other places of interest will now be available at the tips
of your fingers. In an effort to be more tourist-friendly, Goa tourism
has embarked on a tech-savvy project which will make it possible for tourists
to receive information on popular sightseeing spots on their cell phones.
"Locations which are of
significance to tourists in Goa will be allocated a specific code number.
Texting the code number in the format: MGoa_(place code) to 56070, will
give tourists information about that particular place. Messages can be
delivered in text as well as audio format," tourism director Swapnil Naik
