Goa, with a smashing nightlife scene, doesn’t fail to entertain the tourists and the locals but let’s face it. Going to a club and getting smashed unless there’s a kickass live act doesn’t really call for entertainment now, does it? Even if it did, it Does n’t really thrill you or enlighten you but just puts you in a temporary state of joy which might lead to a bad hangover the next day.
