Wish for a little peace, love and happiness and find yourself on a flight to Goa. This state, known around the world as a hippy-haven, became a hot-spot destination in the 1970s for flower-power travelers seeking a bit of respite from the chaotic and overly-influenced Americanized world. Peace-loving nomads booked cheap flights to Goa for all-night parties and sun-soaked days on the beach. Today, those same cheap flights to Goa are now booked with backpackers, business travelers and first-time tourists to India.
Goa’s allure remains the same today as it did decades ago. It’s distinctness from other India states lies within its Portuguese and India influences. The state is laid-back and welcoming – the casual attitude on the flight to Goa remains intact throughout the visit. After a tour of Goa’s mansions, ancient alleys and garden-clad villas, take a siesta with the rest of Goa and rest up for a night out in Goa’s trendy downtown district.
What was once a city flooded with Birkenstock-wearing Bohemians is now a high-fashion destination spot for tourists. From luxury home interior design stores to specialty retail clothing boutiques, Goa remains a haven for trendy travelers. Make sure you plan ahead if your flight to Goa descends over Christmas or New Years – you’ll be spending the holiday with thousands of other tourists and Goa flights and accommodations are pricey. Just because the hippies have moved on doesn’t mean India's premier party destination has lost its cool.
