This old Portuguese enclave used to be 15 years ago the place to be for a great party nowadays when you arrived low season (as we did), there is no more.
23/08 to 28/08 /12: Palolem
We arrived low-season therefore we found closed guesthouse. They will start again in late October. Nevertheless we enjoyed a good 2 days of sun and exploring followed by 3 days of Monsoon. The streets transformed themselves in rivers ! It was great to feel the intensity of the monsoon rains...! We met some lovely people in Palolem (from UK & France & we hope to see the French couple (Charlie & Fanny) in Paris in May....)
There is two nice beaches further along. You do get some hawkers trying to sell jelleweries (self-made!?) but to be honest nothing original which cannot be found in any tourist market in Europe.
Marie, the frenchy came to London in 2007 and met Clive (from Romsey) in London. We both dreamed about a long journey around the world. One day, we decided to make this dream reality: so here we go! Set plans, buy books, talks with families and friends and the dream becomes a reality on the 30th may 2012.
Feel free to follow our journey :) ... full info
