Goa, with its exotic natural vistas and seductive charm, keeps mesmerising the visitors all the year round. However, during the monsoons, its charm attains an epicness that is hard to resist. Rain washes everything up, turning the land into a quintessential tropical paradise – with lush greenery reining all corners, swaying palm trees, shiny paddy fields, sparkling colourful houses, and more than fifty shades of green all around. The icing on this ‘tropical paradise’ cake is the fact that Goa is less crowded this time of the year, thanks to the burgeoning seas and rolled up shacks. So if one is not too fond of the crowds and wishes to enjoy Goa at a leisurely pace, monsoons are the best time to be here.
