Goa is known for its sunny beaches, natural beauty and vibrant culture. But more than anything else, Goa enjoys the reputation of being the party capital of India. Anybody who has been to Goa knows that North Goa is the ultimate hub for nightlife. It boasts some of the best clubs and parties in India, and you cannot miss them out on your trip. But if you were planning to party like there's no tomorrow in North Goa in the coming weeks, there is sad news for you.
The government recently announced the imposition of Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code in North Goa, which means that the unlawful assembly of four or more people is not permitted. The order was supposed to be in effect for 60 days, from 11 February to 10 April, 2020. The decision was made in light of an intelligence report that hinted towards a possible terror threat. However, the imposition was revoked on 18 February on account of the Goa Carnival which starts from 22 February.
However, there is no certainty that Section 144 has been revoked for good, and it may be imposed again in the near future. Considering the indeterminate administrative decisions, one can’t really be sure about their North Goa plans.
But you don’t need to panic. You can alter your plans without cancelling your tickets or rescheduling your vacation. North Goa is not the only place where you can enjoy a good nightlife. South Goa too has a multitude of places where you can venture out for a crazy vacation.
The party scene in South Goa is as lit as North Goa, and all you need to do is to hit these groovy destinations:
