Goa, India, Mumbai

2 weeks in Goa/Mumbai -- what are the best things to do and see?

Hi all,

I'm going to Goa for a wedding end of January and I thought I should take the opportunity to travel a bit.

The plan is, go to the wedding, and then spend a couple weeks travelling around the area, flying in and out of Mumbai.

I more of a slow traveller, I like to let things happen and take my time. I've never been to India and I don't expect to have a full view of the country in 2 weeks! So I like to focus on that area.

Thanks!

Sego

Thats a brilliant way to think about travelling in Mumbai. 

Definitely soak in Haji Ali Dargah spend a lot of time in the mosque - its a calming experience. Then walk out and grab some some of the best juices and Fruit with cream i've had at Haji Ali Juice Center

Take another day to just walk around the Fort, the buildings Times Of IndiaChhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and more are just worth. The road side Pav bhaji's in the stalls opposite the railway station are brilliant.

I would take another day to discover Elephanta Caves. Its a boat ride away from Gateway Of India Mumbai. Return to some spectacular food at one of the restaurants in the The Taj Mahal Palace

Make sure you definitely try the Pav bhaji, Road side Sandwiches and Gujarati fare in Mumbai!

Mumbai  last month and i loved it! You should visit the railway station, to see how many people walk through that giant station! Then it was very interesting to see the Bombay High Court, a very typical experience! Have a walk in Colaba and drink a coffee at Cafe Leopold!

Near there you can find also the Gateway Of India Mumbaiand the The Taj Mahal Palace!

Mumbai is amazing, I'm sure you will love it too.

Enjoy it!

If this is your first time to India and you think you may not be back.... do not miss seeing the Taj Mahal...in Agra (a ways from Delhi).  Airfares between Mumbai to Delhi are often very affordable.

Mumbai has lots to do and see.  Here are just a few of many things:  Dhobi Ghats, Dharavi Slums, walk the seawall and see how and where Bombay Duck and other items are dried, ferry out to Elephanta Caves and check these out, go to the train station (Victoria Terminus) Mon.-Friday 11:30 am to watch the tiffin carriers (dabbawalas) do their logistics magic and get lunches off to their destinations,  Crawford Market is great, many bazaars that go on for miles, tour around to see the different architecture from Art Deco to the Egg Shaped Business Tower, Gandhi's House, the Fort, the most expensive private home in the world (26 stories), Flower Market, Chowpatty Beach, Marine Drive, Nehru Center Art Gallery, Malabar Hill, Hanging Gardens, Kamla Nehru Park, Gateway of India, Prince of Wales Museum, Colaba, Juhu Beach, the Fort, Kanheri Caves, Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai Port Trust Gardens, Five Gardens, Chor Bazaar, Fashion Street, Colaba Causeway, Mangaldas Market, Bhuleshwar Market and Dadar Flower Market. 

Goa... enjoy the beaches and the slower pace.

Goa  - We know Goa famous for beaches, partis, foods and culture.

If you wish to spend Quality time with your partner in Goa then visit Baga and Anjuna beaches.

Mumbai - Gateway of india is good think if you are in Mumbai and want to walk in Mumbai.

Hi Sego, 


You are right, 2 weeks is impossible to see it all!

I would explore Goa and then fly up north - see Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan (should take about a week), then spend 3-4 days in Mumbai and fly out from there. 

hope this helps!
