Im off to Goa in 8 weeks yesterday (not that Im counting - woop woop) and was hoping you might be able to give me some advice on where to start the trip, or even better any cheep hostels that we can start our trip in.
Anything you can come up with is a great help, before I forget do you know where to get any party information.

Cheers

greetings!

well, if u'r thinking of catching a few outdoor psy parties, u'r going to goa at the wrong time...the season starts in mid-october & goes on till the 1st week of march..october & nov the scene is warming up..then dec,jan & feb its full power..and in march it dies down..rest of the months its totally off season..
try 'curlies'- right at the end of anjuna beach...killer place to chill & listen to some good psy...if u'r lucky it might be open, although i doubt it will..9bar will be shut as well....only place i can think of is, paradiso...but i dont like that place much, too much of a clubby vibe..

places worth visiting in goa are - anjuna,vagator,chhapora,arambol,morjim & pallolem..calangute is pretty decent as well...

ok...have a fun trip!

peace..

Hi ya! I went to Goa at the beginning of the season last year. We visited Colva, Anjuna and Pallolem. Despite the reputation of Anjuna, it was deserted. The police had closed all the beach parties (something to do with the new govenor of Goa). Most of the parties seemed to be going ahead in Baga though which is a few km away from Anjuna. We stayed in a guest house called White Negro which was excellent. Very clean and friendly and reasonably priced. Colva doesn't have a night life at all (that we found) but was great to see the less developed village. Pallolem was absolutely beautiful but quite expensive in comparison to the other places. We stayed at Cozy Nook at the north end of the beach. Loved the place! Have fun!
