It is easy to fall in love with Goa. What makes it such a pleasant place to be is the extremely laid-back atmosphere, which combines with long days of sunshine, nice beaches, fascinating 70s-like hippy vibes, and some truly tasty – and cheap – sticky stuff to spice up your otherwise unrewarding cigarette tobacco!
Psychedelic trance parties are very much part of the Goan legend, but in true fact, they’re no longer a pivotal element of the sublimely chilled Goan lifestyle. Surely, during the most popular months, full-moon, half-moon or quarter-moon parties can be found almost every day (the moon is just an excuse, hey), but more and more visitors seem to be there for the quietness – and they’re not disappointed.
Believe me when I say – Goa is the ultimate place where having nothing to do feels sweet. Whichever area you choose to settle down in – Anjuna for the party-loving, Arambol or others for the calm-seeking – rent a 50cc scooter for two or three pounds a day, and you’re free to roam the many attractive little spots the area has to offer.
