  • Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai

    Taj Mahal Hotel

    Even if you can't afford to stay here (and I couldn't) it is worth the trip just to see this famous hotel that has long been considered one of the world's finest. George Bernard Shaw is supposed to have said that once he saw the Taj Hotel he didn't need to se the real Taj Mahal. I did manage to get in for an $18 breakfast.

    As with the whole of India, only drink bottled water and use it when you're cleaning your teeth. I kept a bottle with a bit of water in it beside the sink so as to remind myself to use it. Also, avoid ice and salads as they will probably have been washed in dodgy water. Its all common sense really but if you stick to it, you limit the chances of...
