If you want
to party, there is no place on this planet like Goa. Goa is
synonymous with partying and the land is chock a bloc with
party zones on every nook and corner. Beach parties, trance
parties, New Year parties -- parties of myriad hues keep the
Goan life throbbing with dynamic energy all year round.
The famous beaches of Goa are havens for party animals and
the landscape is dotted with trendy discos and nightclubs.
Vacationers and locals throng these party zones to dance the
night away amid the beats of hip hop music. Some of the most
popular party zones in Goa are Club Tito's in Baga beach,
Club Antos in Calangute beach and Club Cabana at Arpora, 3
km from Calangute.
Trance parties or Goa raves are another exotic facet of the
Goa party culture. The trance parties took root in Goa
courtesy the hippies who arrived on the Goa beaches in the
1960s. Accompanied by the techno beats of psychedelic
trance, the trance parties continued till the wee hours.
Even though the hippie influx petered out in the 1990s,
trance or raves are still very much a part of the nightlife
in the Goa beaches.
