What You Should Know More About Maharashtra

  • Q. Travel Advice

    • Be careful: One needs to be extra cautious around people like taxi drivers, auto drivers, tourist guides among others because they tend to take advantage of your lack of the knowledge of the place and seemingly try to loot you of your money.

    • Avoid unnecessary attention: Do not flash too much cash in a crowded area. You will unnecessarily be attracting attention. This way you can avoid trouble too.

    • Avoid too much public display of attention: It is important that we realize that whole the country may be advancing, the people will still take time to do so. People are slightly traditional and therefore, it is better to respect their sentiments. As far as women are concerned, it is important that they do not wear too revealing clothes and travelers should especially avoid excessive public display of affection.

    • Bottled water: As far as possible, try having bottled water and ensure that the seal of the bottle is intact.

    • Drinking laws: The legal drinking age in Maharashtra is 25. However, there are many teenagers who recklessly indulge in this behavior especially in cities like Mumbai, Pune, Alibaug and Nashik. The government requires an identity proof before folks can consume alcohol. Therefore, remain especially cautious of this. However, there is certainly no denying the fact that the nightlife in these cities is among the best India has to offer.

  • Q. What you cannot afford to miss:

    • Cultural exploration through the state of Maharashtra: The state of Maharashtra is known for many things. All the way from its food to landscapes and the different kind of people that comes from varied backgrounds. Indulge in cultural exploration of this place by visiting the primary attractions and interacting with the locals and getting to know the place a bit better. Travel from place to place and we are sure that you won’t be disappointed.

    • Embrace the flora and fauna of the state: Most people have a wrong perception about Maharshtra. They feel that the state is rather pale by nature. However, they are quite wrong about that. One can easily get up from their lazy life and find something interesting to do in Maharashtra. Whether it is exploring the glistening cityscapes of Mumbai or chilling in the serenity of Mahasbaleshwar or Lonavla. These places offer you much more than you could have expected.

    • Chill at the vast beaches of Maharashtra: Maharashtra houses mountains as well as beaches. Thus, when you’re done indulging in the beauty of mountains, you can move on to exploring the beaches of Maharashtra. Find serenity in beaches like Ganpatiphule beach, Shriwardhan Harihareshwar beach, Madh island beach, Tarkarli beach, Chowpatty beach, Juhu beach, Vengurla Malvan beach and others. This state offers much more in terms of activities to do than one can expect.

    • Hunt for caves in the state: Some of the most prominent caves like the Ajanta Ellora or the Elephanta caves fall within the jurisdiction of Maharashtra. These are perhaps, some of the most primary attractions existing in the whole of Maharashtra. It is essential that one becomes a part of these cave explorations themselves to truly understand the beauty that lies behind it.

    • Spiritual oneness by visiting holy places: For those who are pilgrims by heart, there are many places that you can visit too. For instance, the Siddhivinayak Temple or the Mount Mary Church. You have Haji Ali, the Grishneshwar Temple, Trimbakeshwar temple and more that you can visit.

  • Q. What you will like in Maharashtra:

    • Visit the popular tourist spots: First and foremost, it certainly makes sense to finish off by visiting the popular tourist spots in and around Maharashtra. Maharashtra is large state and it may take time to do so. Therefore, single out all the necessary ones and go on a trip around the place but make sure you don’t miss any.

    • Realize the historic relevance the state holds: Maharashtra comprises of endless well known destinations that hold great historic significance in India. Among the many is the city of Kolhapur that has a lot to offer to the traveler.

    • Go city hopping: A little fact check – did you know that the word Maharashtra is derived from two Sanskrit words namely, Maha and Rashtra which means Great and Nation respectively. It truly is a great nation that comprises of numerous famous, well-developed cities which you surely have to explore such as Mumbai, Pune, Thane, Nasik and so on.

    • Relaxing visit to hill stations: There are numerous hill stations that fall in the category of Maharashtra. For instance, Lonavla, Khandala, Mahabaleshwar, Matheran among others. Enjoy a relaxing stay at these places when you’re done with the bustling city life of the state. What’s more? Many of these places offer endless activities to keep you busy. Indulge in watersports too!

    • Food tasting sessions: Of course – one of the most important things to do when you want to get to know the place better is to indulge in some flavourful food tasting sessions of the place. Don’t forget to have the local vada pavs and the special delicacies in the state.
