2. Goa, India

Perched on the golden shores of the Arabian Sea, one of the ultimate places every new age traveler should visit is Goa in India. One of the premier hippie destinations from the start of the flower power culture back in the '60s, Goa is every image come to life that you do not associate with the steamy cities of India. Carnivals, festivals and all night parties under the moonlight, cashmere sands, sparkling azure waters, gentle swaying palms, art festivals, the iconic Goan Carnival, museums and cultural centers, all infected with a true-bohemian spirit, make this a virtual paradise all throughout the year.
