A trip to Mumbai and Delhi Wed 1 Mar to Wed 8 Mar 2017

I am making a trip to India, Delhi and Mumbai during 1st half 1 to 8 Mar 2017. If you have not been to India, feel free to join me. The Taj Mahal, a wonder of intense love is a few hours from Delhi via car. Delhi is a modern city, with modern day traffic jams, huge monuments, underground shopping malls, and exotic India curries. This will be the 10 times, I will be going to the Taj Mahal, and we will stay over to marvel the Taj under the full moon.

Mumbai is the world’s Bollywood. Entertainment, discos, tall scrapers, beautiful sea views, and a population of more than 20 million people.

In India, you see a huge income divide. We can see large weddings, starting at 10pm and ending in the early hours of the morning. You will get to see slumps, thousands and thousands of poor people.

India will be the world’s next biggest production centre.

If you like to join this trip, it is likely we flying Sin/Mumbai/delhi/Sin. We can also do Sin/KL/Mumbai/Delhi/Sin. About 6 days.

Interested, just indicate your interest here.
Feel free to ask any Q.

  2. Jimmy,

    Good to see your interest. The two cities will be finalised once we have at least 4 persons in the group.

    I shall wait until 15 Feb to see the numbers. After this date, I shall let everyone know if the trip is on. If not enough pax to see the sights, I shall then flight back to Singapore instead.

    Look forward to have enough numbers.

  3. Hi Terence
    I would love to join you if you have such trips during school holidays. Please keep us updated.
    My one and only India trip was to Hyderabad in 2006. It was an eye -opening experience for me. I was the only Chinese lady walking around town. Occassionally I get to see a Caucasian traveller.
    Poverty screams from every corner. Children would garner round you pulling your clothes to buy their wares (plastic Indian trinkets, socks, etc). Old female beggars who look like they could be somebody’s grandmother, are the most pitiful as they walked listlessly through the crowded streets bare-footed under the scorching sun. A rupee gained is so precious to them as it could buy them a tiny Indian bread the size of a 50-cent coin. It could be their only meal for the day.
    Having an ayurvedic oil massage with steam bath in a metal container was another unforgetable experience (I got wrapped up like some bak chang and steamed like some ancient Chinese torture!)
    The ubiquitous annoying India road scene is the endless honking of vehicles non-stop. I think I almost go “gila” by the irritating traffic. I had to also watch where I step lest I kena spit by someone chewing betel leaves or accidentally step on cow dung or goat droppings. These animals are everywhere.
    Those who never been to India, I encouraged you to try at least once. It is truly a humbling experience and I am grateful for all the creature comforts we enjoy in Singapore. Life is one exciting journey or nothing at all. Forget about joining tour agencies.. go with Terence on free and easy trips.
    Thank you Terence for often graciously extending your invitation to SHC members on your frequent travels. God bless you.

  4. Hi Laura,

    You must have had a good first experience of India when you visited Hyderabad. In my 20 years, more than 100 times to various India cities, despite the wide income gap between the rich and the poor, Indian citizens generally live peacefully side by side. When the Mondi govt declared the 500 and 1000 rupee notes as illegal, this has almost totally shut off the black econmomy. Hopefully by March, the new money will enrich the lives of India workers and families.

    In recent years, the Chinese are widely seen as the new tourists to India. Many have come to India to enjoy the beautiful hill resorts, the must-see Taj Mahal and the sprawling cities growing day by day. Another reason for Chinese, Koreans and Japanese coming to India are new business opportunities.

    I go to India frequently, and would enjoy showing parts of India to SilverHairsClub members, after I have completed my work each trip. India is colorful, rich in culture and traditions, and has varied food tastes from Delhi (Central) to Chennai (South), Kerala (South) and Kolkata (East).

    I hope you had tried the Hyderabad Byrani, the nicest rice Bryani in the world.

  5. This trip to India has only one response. I am thus not able to organise a travel group as planned.

    Nevertheless, I still have friends and work to attend to in Delhi and Mumbai. I do go different cities in India every few months. So, do get in touch with me whenever you have the urge to go to this huge South Asia continent.

    I leave for Delhi tomorrow night and will be back in a week’s time.
