Mumbai, India

— 5 nights

Gateway to India

Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Babulnath Temple and Jehangir Art Gallery. Babu Amichand Panalal Jain Temple and Shree Siddhivinayak are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Navi Mumbai (ISKCON & Nerul Balaji Temple). The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, make a trip to Gateway of India, pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Andrew Church, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Thomas Cathedral Mumbai.

The port city of Kochi has a rich and varied history that has left its mark on the look and feel of the urban area.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kami City Takashi Yanase Memorial Museum Anpanman Museum and Chikurinji Temple.
