Neighborhoods to explore in Goa.
Assagao is known as ‘Fullyanchem Gaon‘ or the flower village. Villagers here used to grow Marigold flower to sell in the famous Mapusa market.
Anjuna is a village located on the coast of North Goa. A Census Town, one of the twelve Brahmin Comunidades of Bardez. The village's name is derived from the Arabic word 'Hanjuman' meaning Merchant Guild. Some also say it comes from an Arabic word for "change" - as people used to arrive at Anjuna from the sea looking to change money.
The story began here 30 years ago at the time of the hippie heydays in Goa. Today, with its neon palm grove of glow-in-dark coconut trees, psychedelic art and its vast open playground for Goa's Spanerse party goers, Hill Top is arguably Goa's most revered fixture of its still prevalent trance scene.
