Epic parties, chill beaches, and heavy trance music has put Goa, India on the map as a vacation spot for party people for years. But Goa makes our list of Hot Travel destinations, because it offers killer ragers and a more cultural experience. PAW loves Goa because it is a truly magical hotspot with a gorgeous paradise with a lush landscape and a richly complex culture.
Goa’s party scene will take you to the stratosphere, but it’s Goa’s natural beauty that will rocket you into outer-space. The small Indian state offers 63 miles of incredible coastline, behind which lies rolling emerald hills. In those jewel toned caverns lie ancient temples, humble farms, and an exotic animal kingdom. Exploring some of Goa’s river sanctuaries and ancient Buddhist caves will put you in the meditative mind so you can really unwind when they start to pump those techno beats.
For centuries, Goa has been a meeting point of races, religions, and cultures. In 1510, Goa’s breathtaking beauty called settlers from Portugal, who ruled over the location for 450 years leaving a distinctly European mark on the local culture. Lax laws make Goa a place where you can get wild without consequences, but it’s this Portuguese influence that makes Goa super sexy. You know personality counts!
We at PAW love any place on the planet that features new and amazing ways to get crazy, but Goa really tops our list because of its a tropical splendor and unique history!
