If you’re into alternative communities, different lifestyles, or just simple living, it might be best to stay away from touristic cities. For those with alternative tastes, visiting the following 20 hippie towns will offer a more immersive experience.
1. Christiania, Denmark
Freetown Christiania is not really a town, it’s actually a neighborhood in Copenhagen. People have been living there since the ‘70s and nowadays it’s one of Copenhagen’s biggest touristic attractions.
2. Goa, India
Goa was one of the main destinations of the famous Hippie Trail. A walk around any coastal village shows how the laidback attitude is still very much part of the town’s culture.
3. Arembepe, Brazil
This beach village is home to musicians and artists selling their crafts and enjoying life. Even Janis Joplin spent some time here during the height of the hippie movement.
