Coming and Going at Mumbai Airport

Advantages: Much better than it used to be
Disadvantages: Transport connections aren't great.

Advantages: A nice change when you're all spiced out

A good recommendation from your rickshaw driver - obviously knows his stuff! by catsholiday
As far as I'm aware, if it's for foreigners (in India) it usually means it's better standard than for locals as they rely on repeat business and recommendations (such as this). by anonymili

Coorg, 'The Scotland of India'
Review of General: India by skmm

Advantages: A very beautiful place and very healthy

An "E" from me. Great review. Kate xx by Zurich11
This was a very enlightening and enjoyable review about Coorg but I couldn't rate any higher as the category is for India in general and for someone looking to know about India overall as a destination they would only be reading about one destination, namely Coorg. by anonymili

The Taj Mahal: Not the most enjoyable tourist experience
Review of Agra and the Taj Mahal (India) by lights84

Advantages: A beautiful attraction
Disadvantages: A potentially stressful experience

Sounds like they need to work on their customer care skills for tourists. Mind you, they can probably get away with it as it's one of those places everyone wants to visit in spite of the lack of facilities and helpful staff....a bit like the pyramids in Eygpt where the locals continually hassle the tourists :o( by Bollinger28

From Zero to Hero - the Airport that Reinvented Itself
Review of Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi by koshkha

Advantages: It works
Disadvantages: I can't guarantee how long it will stay so lovely

Not So Happy Memories Once upon a time, any traveller arriving in India was hit instantly by culture shock the moment they stepped off the plane; the airports were dreadful. Whilst I used to enjoy the exotic scent of joss-sticks, it was harder to tur ... Read review

The carpet did give me a bit of a headache after a long flight plus an unscheduled 2 hour stop in Nagpur due to unseasonable fog in Delhi. Baggage was still taking a silly amount of time in late 2010 but the domestic side was also shiny and new by then. I know it's mad but I do kind of miss the old "Indianness" of the airport by BristolBud
