    Been there for work. Lots of horror stories (Scarlett Keeling, Stephen Bennett) and a serious crime/corruption scene. If you’re after sun, sea, sand in that part of the world Sri Lanka is a much nicer place. Or Kerala.

    Dropped off there whilst cycling from Bombay (Mumbai) down to Kerala. Never got to Kerala. Don’t drink the Todi. Don’t do the acid. Go to the Taj Mahal instead.

    I’ve been whilst travelling around the world. DO NOT GO TO BAGA BEACH!!! you might as well go to a shite hole in Spain somewhere, well I found Goa to be really nice, cheap and the people to be rather friendly and welcoming. Try the Belo beer, ace, So south Goa is a must. I would go back no questions asked!

    Enjoy.

    I stayed in Goa for 6 months. 2hottie says all you need to know.
    Stay south – away from the tourist areas – its surprising some of the stuff that happens Goa.
    Kerela is much better. Or if you a hippy type try Gokarn (south of Goa)

    Actually come to think of it when I left in september 97 the charter fights were starting for the first year that Dec,
    real Indian experience is elsewhere – Hampi / Trivandrum / Pushkar / Manali some of my favorite places

    Well Frogleek,

    When I arrived at baga on my little trip around Goa on a scooter I borrowed I was gutted to find a beach full of dumpy white Europeans sat on an army of deck chairs.. I didn’t even see the bloody beach!

    As I said shite hole….

    Kerala backwaters are worth a trip – touristy but for good reason. Quite enjoyed Vagator in Goa but that was 9 years ago – probably ruined by hippies and ravers now. And backpackers like me.
