A Crazy December 31st at Leopard Valley, Palolem

A club with 3D laser light shows, pyrotechnics and a 7-meter high DJ stage which pumps out high-quality music until the wee hours of the morning is what you’ll get here. It’s an open-air club which is a novelty for most of us. The crazy visuals, paired with amazing music, will make for a more than memorable New Year’s Eve.
Try Your Luck at the Casinos
Casinos, and their ability to attract thousands of tourists every year have made Goa the Vegas of India. You don’t need to shell out your entire life’s savings to travel across the seas to Vegas.
