Welcome to Goa, a state that has over 7000 bars. Almost all of them are licensed to serve alcohol. Hop on a motorcycle taxi and explore the state that is home to many nomads and expats. The beaches are amazing, the cost of living is quite low and the number of tourists increases every year. Inigo’s Night Market is probably one of the coolest places here. It was started by a German hipster who came to Goa for a week and ended up staying for several years. He decided to open up this place where you can find handmade bags, leather jackets and unique necklaces in one of the illuminated stalls.

Of course, Goa offers many tourist attractions such as the visit to the beautiful Dudhsagar Falls, Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Basilica of Bom Jesus, Shanta Durga Temple and many more awesome spots. If you prefer to spend your time at the beach, there are numerous sports activities that include surfing and parasailing. Do you love dolphins and would love to see them up close? The good news is that there is a Dolphin Cruise that takes passengers to the Grand Island. Once the night falls, the state of Goa turns into one giant party. There are events with live performances almost everywhere, especially near the beaches.
