How can you answer what a million + people wear? They dont all wear the same lol. Generally speaking the males wear trousers and shirts and the women wear loose fitting Indian style clothes. Most adult Goans do not wear shorts when in town (if at all) Sadhus wear very little.
If you want a nice comfortable stay in Goa at nominal rates, especially in South Goa, Colva beach area is ideal as it is central to most beaches in the south.. Instead of expensive hotels you could always check out some good , clean and spacious accomodation at a fraction of the hotel cost. The answer to that is self-contained apartments.. There are some well maintained sparkling apartments in Colva just 5 minutes from the beach and are equipped with airconditioners, refigerator, geyser, gas connection , utensils, fresh bedding, television etc with a living room, a bedoom, kitchen area and a spacious bathroom..

This is the best time to visit Goa for reasons unheard by tourist who travel to Goa during the crappy on season. It rich green and blue and the sky i full of snow white clouds.... the sea is crazy (of course u cant swim! what are the swimming pools for than??) U have no tourist around and that's the reason that hotels are cheap (that also means that the beaches are cleaner...) The finest drinks would put u right in less than no time and the absence of neccesity of thought would restore mental equillibrium. trust me it cant get better than July
