Dharavi was ranked 10th in Asia list. Incedible!
In one of the major developments, the Dharavi slum cluster in Mumbai trumped Taj Mahal in Agra to become the favourite tourist experience place of 2019 in India. This came as per travel site TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards, which says that a small group tour of the Dharavi slums in Mumbai is the top most preference of tourists who visit the country.
Dharavi is the largest slum in Asia, and has won the top position on the ‘Top 10 Experiences list in India’. It also made it to the ’10 Travellers’ Choice Experiences 2019 in Asia’ list.
After Dharavi, comes the bike tour of Old Delhi followed by a private day tour of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort by a superfast train on the second and third position respectively.
As far as the Asia list is concerned, Dharavi was ranked 10th after a ‘full-day group Angkor Wat Tour from Siem Reap in Cambodia’ and enjoying the ‘Krabi Sunset Cruises at Ao Nang, Thailand’.
In the Asia list, the number 1 position went to the ‘Ubud tour with Jungle Swing in Indonesia’. In the World category faster than skip-the-line experience at the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica Tour in Rome, Italy was number 1 as far as experience is concerned.
Dharavi has always found a lot of coverage in both Bollywood and Hollywood movies and once again proved that people want to experience the local culture and get a feel of what the local communities have to offer.
“Experiences make a vacation truly memorable and this list offers Indian travellers a great range of bookable tours, attractions and experiences to choose from within India as well as overseas. The breadth of winners like a Costa Rican waterfall rappelling experience, a Bollywood tour, Balinese jungle swing, an Indian slum tour, skip-the-line Vatican access, and a tour of Paris by vintage sidecar – reflects the incredible selection available to travellers,” said Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor India was quoted as saying.
So, next time you are in Mumbai, do not miss a trip to Dharavi!
