Music, Dance, and Fun these three words are enough to describe the wondrous adventures this state promises to entertain. Goa may be the smallest state of the country, but it promises adventures better than any other place in the country.
BJP legislature and the representative of the Calangute Assembly segment, Michael Lobo said in July, “Goa is a world-famous destination for its nightlife. The nightlife has been shut down (due to Covid-19 curbs), and I feel that it should continue to remain closed till the Covid- 19 situation in the country comes under control,” he said.
The minister said the lives of people are more important than the economy of Goa.
“We have seen our close friends dying due to Covid- 19. We have to be very careful. The economic activity can resume after we see that Covid-19 cases across India are coming under control,” he said.
But the recent declaration of the government to reopen the state for tourists has made the state slowly resume the magnificent nightlife earlier showcased by this state.
The most popular lane in Goa,’ Tito’s Lane ‘ near Baga beach is the perfect destination for both national and domestic party animals.
It is famous for Tito’s bar and club along with its authentic shops, and stalls for people to window shop their way or buy souvenirs for their remembrance of this beautiful place,
But being bound to Covid-19 guidelines, these businesses have lost many of their customers by being forced to close their businesses a lot earlier than their initial closing time.
