Dharavi slums in Mumbai just became the favourite tourist experience of 2019 in India by beating Taj Mahal.
According to a travel site TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice Awards, a small group tour of the Dharavi slums in Mumbai is the top most preference of tourists who visit the country.
Dharavi, which is the largest slum of Asia, won the top position on the Top 10 Experiences list in India and also made it to the '10 Travellers' Choice Experiences 2019 in Asia' list.
While Dharavi topped the list for the experiences in India, it was followed by a 'bike tour of Old Delhi' and a 'private day tour of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort by a superfast train' on the second and third position respectively.
On the Asia list, Dharavi bagged the 10th rank after '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, while the 'Ubud tour with Jungle Swing in Indonesia' bagged the top position, the 'faster than skip-the-line experience at the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica Tour in Rome, Italy' topped the World category.
Dharavi, which has been highlighted in various Bollywood and Hollywood movies recently, just proved that experiencing local culture has become an important part of travelling.
