Hi, me and my partner have just arrived in Andheri East, Mumbai. It's our first time traveling and it's all a bit daunting.
We want to meet some fellow travellers, get some help with our next step, where to go to improve our time in India.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am sorry if it looks like a blog promotion. But there was a post I wrote sometime back on things to do in South Mumbai. Hope that helps.
Alternatively you can take a Mumbai Heritage Walk. Link Here for one of the groups that conducts. Source: Google
Welcome to India.
How many days do you have in hand? Do you know somebody in town? Have you not done any homework before landing? Anyway, as mentioned above, I would suggest you to go to South Mumbai (Andheri is north). Go for Mumbai Heritage walk or take Open Deck Bus Tour to see the heritage sites.
I won't suggest Mumbai beaches as they aren't the best in India or the world.
You'll find many like minded people in and around Colaba & Bandra who can help & guide you.
Do you have any plans after Mumbai? You haven't mentioned what is your preference. Do you like heritage sites, wildlife, city life, beaches, etc. ? Suggestions would depend on them.
As a first timer to India, I suggest you to go to Delhi-Rajasthan.
Anyway, have a nice time in India. In case you need any info, don't hesitate to ask.
If you wish to visit Goa which is about one hour flight from Mumbai, please get in touch and I will give you the required info.
All the best. Regards
Thank you so much for those replies! We have traveled away from where we were and are now loving it in fort, much more welcoming, fun and a lot to see. This is the India we were expecting.
I think we were just overwhelmed on our first day, we were jet lagged and all that we had studied of India went out e window. Back on track now.
By the way if any one knows of any travellers staying in or around fort over the next few days would be great to meet them.
Any other information, tips or experiences you would like to share with us would be greatly appreciated.
If you have time than you should visit delhi and tajmahal in agra
