Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai


WEST & BEYOND


Extending along the Arabian coast, from the golden beaches of Goa, to the cosmopolitan streets of Mumbai and north to Gujarat, western India is a wonderful region of stark contrast. A land of aromatic spices and glittering temples, colourful festivals and untainted tribal experiences, this region offers visitors something so essentially Indian.


MUMBAI Formerly Bombay, Mumbai is India’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Home to ‘Bollywood’ and the country’s financial centre, Mumbai is filled with reminders of its colonial past, including its famous landmark, ‘Gateway of India’ and the magnificent Victoria Terminus Railway Station. An enjoyable half-day visit can be made by ferry to the ancient cave temples on Elephanta Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


WHERE TO STAY IN MUMBAI THE OBEROI – Contemporary design and elegance at Nariman Point, overlooking the Arabian Sea


TAJ MAHAL PALACE – The most historic hotel in India, a few steps from India Gate in the city’s heart


BEACHES OF GOA Goa’s endless palm kissed beaches provide opportunities to relax and enjoy the warm waters of the Arabian Sea. Beyond the beaches you can find a beguiling mix of local colour and Portuguese colonial legacy making Goa a suitable destination for an extension to a tour or as part of a longer visit to western India.


WHERE TO STAY IN GOA TAJ EXOTICA – Located on the south west coast, this Mediterranean style resort is set amidst 56 acres of lush gardens
