Anjuna

South Goa , Goa

Anjuna Beach is popularly known as the freak capital of the world and not without reasons. It claimed popularity for its Trance Parties and the Hippies who tried to synthesize the spiritual traditions of the East and the art, ideas and the music of the West. Sometime in the late 1950s to mid-1960s, the area was "discovered" by a group of travelers, including "Eight Finger Eddie," and a small international psychedelic scene began to meet there to party during the dry season. Anjuna is just the right place for lazing holidaymakers. Besides the calm waters of the Arabian Sea lapping softly on the Indian shore, Anjuna comes live with its ever-famous full-moon parties and the Wednesday flea market to take one on to a trance trip. Well Anjuna is thus definitely not for the weak hearted. Many a people visit it just to get a glimpse of a life that is absolutely footloose and fancy free. A large stretch of beach ornamented with hammocks and colourful swimwear, Anjuna represents everything that is the party spirit of Goa. Anjuna is situated north of two other famous beaches of Baga and Calangute. The nearest town to Anjuna is Mapusa. There are daily buses plying from Mapusa to Anjuna. Thivim is the closest railway station to Anjuna Beach and situated in Mapusa. The capital city of Panaji is around 18 km from this beach and the airport is 47 km away. Now you know where you are, in case you forget once you are in Anjuna. Some of the best shopping experiences, a world class tattoo parlour, some amazing cuisines you have ever had, this is one holiday whose hangover is not likely to leave you for a very long time.

  • Flea markets


    "A flea market (or swap meet) is a type of bazaar that rents space to people who want to sell or barter merchandise. Used goods, low quality items, and high quality items at low prices are commonplace.\nMany markets offer fresh produce, unique products and plants from local farms. Renters of the flea market are vendors. It may be indoors, as in a warehouse or school gymnasium; or outdoors, as in a field or parking lot or under a tent. Flea markets can be held annually or semiannually, others may be conducted monthly, on weekends, or daily. Flea-market vendors may range from a family that is renting a table for the first time to sell a few unwanted household items, to scouts who rove the region buying items for sale from garage sales and other flea markets, and several staff watching the stalls.[1][2][3]\nFlea market vending is distinguished from street vending in that the market itself, and not any other public attraction, brings in buyers. Many flea markets have food vendors who sell snacks and drinks to the patrons,[4] Some flea market vendors have been targeted by law enforcement efforts to halt the sale of bootleg movies and music[5][6] or knockoff brand clothing, accessories, or fragrances."
