Planning my first trip to India 28- dec to 14th Jan. Hoping they still do awesome beach parties forr New years, can anyone shed any light on this?
any other suggestions for must do activites in Goa/India most welcome.

i would love to see Goa in season! we went in September, it was the rainy season and we were virtually the only tourists around, the bars weren't busy, and we thought 'this isn't goin to be much fun', which was annoying as it was the relaxing part of our trip to India. However, we did have a great time. The places in Baga (where i gathered most of the tourists go for the nightlife) has got some club/bars which look like potentially very good places. you cant really miss them on the beach front, they were called Mambos and on the Rocks. And another one around the corner looked cool but again not busy at all due to the time of year. nice place and really cool people. in Baga on the road to the beach there was a little bar/hostel down a short narrow path called 'Sebes', the guy there was a really helpful guy he'd be able to sort you out with anything you needed., places to see, information, etc etc.

i know it isnt quite as relevant as you would have liked but i hope that helps a bit, any more questions let me know!

be aware of pick-pockets in the crowds
