Embrace your "inner hippy" as you lounge in the sun on the glorious beaches of Goa, India. This has been a place where PlanetHoppers! have gone to "drop out" of the fast lane of modern life since the 1960's, and if you look hard enough, you can still find some of these old timers lingering on. Today, it has progressed past its original hippy hangout into a popular resort town that caters to the rich, as well as to the continuous flow of backpackers passing through. Just try to remember that there is more to Goa than just a 24/7 party. The influences from Portuguese Colonial rule has produced a unique blend of cultures, architectural attractions and food. Make sure to tear yourself away from the beaches a bit and visit the villages of Goa, which have a definite charm, and are clean and friendly. A number of other attractions include, Fort Agunda, Duhsagar Waterfalls, Basicila of Bom Jesus, Ponda, the Arjuna Flea Market, the Tropical Spice Plantation... the list is quite extensive. Oh, yes, don't forget to bathe an elephant... perhaps the coolest thing to do in Goa!
