Mumbai and Goa are two of India’s most popular places to visit. Combined into one trip, they add a wonderful contrast and mix of experiences into your itinerary.
Mumbai is one of the most exciting and diverse cities in the world. The home of Bollywood and India’s rich and famous, the vibrant streets provide plenty of excitement and glamour whilst the exclusive Marine Drive and Chowpatty Beach is the perfect place for an evening stroll, soaking up the lively atmosphere and watching the sunset over the Arabian Sea.
Along with iconic monuments and beautiful architecture, Mumbai is also home to one of Asia’s largest slums, Dharavi. A guided walk exploring the sprawling narrow lanes provides a fascinating insight into life within Dharavi and the community that stretches over 500 acres.
In contrast, Goa’s palm fringed beaches and bohemian vibes provide the perfect surroundings for total relaxation. Stay in a traditional style villa or boutique hotel, watch fishermen pull in their day’s catch and feast on freshly caught seafood and coconut curries whilst sitting on the beach, sand between your toes. If you fancy a change from the beach, perhaps explore the tangle of narrow streets in Goa’s state capital, Panjim. Enjoy the Portuguese influenced architecture and get to know the locals in one of India’s most relaxed state capitals.
