India for the forth time! It is again the triad: Mumbai – Poona – Goa. Within two years a lot has changed in the street picture of Mumbai and Poona. A lot of things are under construction, there are new restaurants and nice dance clubs. However, the insider tip is still GOA and especially the hotel “Alila Diwa”, a genuine oasis of recreation! Pictures of the hotel and of many other beautiful things can be found here.
My recommendation for a trip outside Poona is the Purandar Fort, approximately 1 1/2 hrs away from Pune – duration depends on the traffic.
