About MUMBAI, GOA AND THE SOUTH

Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is one of the most populous and popular cities of India. Also known as The Maximum City – it is not only the powerhouse of Indian business, industry and trade but also the financial and entertainment capital of the country. Among the bustling crowds, you will find world class restaurants, colonial architecture and the buzz of the world’s largest film industry Bollywood.

The Gateway of India is Mumbai’s most recognisable monument. Elephanta Island is home to UNESCO World Heritage listed caves, sculptures and religious carvings that are over 2500 years old. It’s hard to miss the colonial influence in Mumbai. The British reign left its mark all over the city be it the German gables, the Dutch roofs to the Romance arches and Tudor casements. In the north of the city is Chowpatty beach which is popular for strolls and street food. This sea side strip come alive at night along marine Drive.

The city’s cuisine is closely linked to its transformation from a fishing village to a cosmopolitan city. The wave of immigrants brought with them their culinary secrets and as a result you can find many interesting flavours – Parsi, Gujarati, Goan and south Indian. Vada pav is the go to snack in Mumbai.

Goa is the undisputed beach capital of India, nestled looking out at the Arabian Sea with its palm fringed beaches stretches of golden sand, the beautiful green countryside and the rich cultural heritage seen in the array of churches, temples, forts and museums – all add to the charm of India’s smallest state. Evolving from a Portuguese colony to a key stop in the hippie culture, Goa is a melting pot of many cultures.  Goan cuisine is hot and spicy with strong flavours with delicious fresh seafood and fish curries, all borrowing from its Portuguese past.
