Discover the vibrant city of Mumbai and take in a very unique experience about a place that is so fascinating and overflowing with energy that it will certainly infect you with its enthusiasm. If you are a person who doesn’t like to put up with the usual holiday destinations but crave for something more then try out this cultural experience. I have found a cheap flight on Budgetair.ie and added a really great hotel from Trivago.ie. So all you need to do is make two separate purchases for going on this trip!
Turkish Airlines takes you from Dublin via Istanbul to Mumbai airport. From there it is only a very short taxi ride to your hotel, which is located centrally. The 4-star Tunga Regale Hotel (83% on Tripadvisor) was not only awarded with fantastic reviews, the hotel has also won this year’s Certificate of Excellence. You have breakfast included in the deal, so the start of your sightseeing trip will be easy.
Inside the city you definitely have to visit the Gateway of India. The landmark was built in 1911 and belongs to the most important sights, alongside the Taj Mahal, which is of course also a must-see. If you like to get away from the buzz of the city and need a bit of relaxing time then take a stroll at the Victoria Gardens. There you also find the zoo and can get the Life of Pi feeling… Sports-fans will love the Oval Maidan, a big square where hundreds of cricket players come together at the weekend and spend time with their favourite thing. The place is packed with visitors, so you can experience a great atmosphere. For spending a fun night out I’d recommend you to go to the beach :) At Chowpatty Beach you find numerous bars and great restaurants, so ideal if you want to indulge in the Indian nightlife.
Experience this once-in-a-lifetime-trip and treat yourself to a culinary as well as culturally enriching holiday!
