HolidayIQ Reviewer Savio Thomas shares, “If you haven't been to Goa, you need to!!IImmediately!! Pack your bags and get to Goa!! Been there god knows how many times and Goa just keeps calling my name over and over again. Beckoning me to come back. And I will!! At every opportunity. Everybody can go here. The hippie, the spiritual, the atheist, the priest, the rich and the poor. You can go swimming or you could also go trekking. Thats one of the specialties. Build sand castles. Bury your best friend in the sand. Run around like a mad person and people won't even notice you. Make a lot of friends. Go to the shacks, the pubs, the churches, the forts and you will still feel like a week's vacation ended in a day. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Savita Kaswan adds, “ The hippies' destination 1. Stay at Hotel Rock Regency Hampi - A decent place to stay near Hampi. They serve good food at reasonable prices in their in-house restaurent "on the rocks". Walk able distance from ATM's and MORE supermarket. 2. For food lovers- Laughing Buddha, ShantiDham. 3. For nature lovers- Coracle ride is a must. 4.For shopping freaks- Hampi market is good enough to collect souvenirs. 5. Activities like Yoga, hiking, mountain climbing, boating, fishing etc. 6. Bikes can be taken on rent on both sides of the river. 7. The place has a great mythological value and archaeological heritage. 8. The place closes down at 6 pm, so plan everything accordingly.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ramya R shares, “Long walk leading to a beautiful falls. Small trek to Bhagsu waterfall from the main town of McLeodganj is highly recommended. After reaching the falls, don't forget to have chai and snacks at "End of the world" cafe, just below the falls. Also, you can take a detour to Shiva cafe and enjoy with the hippie crowd.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Smriti Mahale says, “The small town of Gokarna has three beaches. OM Beach being the most prominent of the all. The place is filled with hippies and foreigners. The beach near the temple is a fifteen minute walk from the bus stand and ideal for family time....A day is enough to explore the small town and a day more if you wish to laze on the beach. Make sure you carry a lot of sunscreen with you if you are visiting the place in summer!Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Soumyaraj Bhanja adds, “The most relaxing hippie paradise amidst the sands, water and the sun! Nor too crowded or neither too vast, Anjuna Beach is the one stop destination for young people who have come to Goa seeking some quality blissful beach enigma. Sunsets are gorgeous at these shores and moreover the beaches are tidy....mind blowing music of multiple genres anytime at the backdrop which in turn amplifies the entire ambiance of the beach to another level higher. Notable shacks to check out are namely Curlies, Shiva Cafe and Lilliput.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq says, “Queen of the Beaches Calangute Beach is situated at a distance of about four and half kilometre from Candolim Beach. This is the most developed beach of North Goa and considered the queen of the beaches. Palm trees are beautifying its shores and its inherent beauty attracts lot of visitors....A unique and the most enchanting beach with proper Goan colour, even it was very attractive for hippies in 60s.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kiran sood Sood adds, “Ganga, the holy river is pristine clear at Rishikesh...Ancient times had many higher souls on the banks of Ganga aspiring to touch higher spheres of consciousness : known as Rishis. Grace of Divine is showered on chosen ones. Who are those fortunate ones? Are they affluent or occupying seats on high table with profusion of authority? No religion says so. Happier souls may be found in rags. Many western gypsies known as hippies for common man came to India with yearning for traversing on unknown spaces....Beatles brought Rishikesh on world map as spiritual small town of transcendental meditation. This place is worth visiting time and again.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ayush Nandakumar says, “Once known for its pure hippie gathering, I first had seen this beautiful beach in 2006. Amazingly clean and great water makes it ideal to relax. That time there were few stay options available. Every evening the hippies would play and dance to awesome music which was a pleasure to enjoy. I again visited Arambol few months back. Quite a few shacks have opened up and its no longer that off the route beach any more. There is a fresh water lake just beyond Arambol. ” Read Full Review
