Wanderlist Discover: Goa, India
Goa, India is a small city full of life, charm and allure and is known for it’s laid-back atmosphere, beaches and parties.
It is a kaleidoscope of varied landscapes from forested mountain range to lush river valleys and white sand beaches, and blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures. Spend a the day lounging on the beach with a cold beer, followed by fresh and spicy seafood for dinner and trance parties at night.
It wasn’t much of a tourist spot until the early 1960s when the beaches quickly became the hot spot for wild parties and the 80’s, the era of electronic music, changed Goa into a hot spot for raves and full-moon parties
