Goa’s a perennial favourite with honeymooners, large Indian families, the glitterati, the sun-worshippers, the beach bums, the beer-lovers, the religious, and the irreverent. It's happy-go-lucky, exuberant, and no-holds-barred. And it's at its best in the rain-drenched months of the monsoon.

Portugese influence is clearly visible.Sun-drenched beaches, Indian curries, a place to relax, you may still find the occasional hippy, now middle-aged, who has stayed on after the flower power era.
