One good practical benefit of this guide to Mumbai and Goa is it's size. It will fit neatly in coat pockets, small shoulder bags and handbags.

Other good points about this guide are :

* easily readable map of the rail network in Mumbai
* 8 pages of maps of Mumbai
* interesting and useful section on bars and pubs in Mumbai
* good selection of photographs of Mumbai and Goa.

Particularly enjoyed the section which gives information on the suburbs of Mumbai. For me as a keen traveller, I am generally more attracted to, and interested in the suburbs and residential areas of a city. Wandering around the suburbs and residential areas of any city quite often is more revealing and educational to an open-minded traveller than simply hanging around the central area of a city visiting museums. art galleries etc.

A handy little guide.

This is the first Timeout Guide i have used and i was really impressed.

On the practical side it fits into a jeans back pocket; the map is good enough for you really find your way around; the rail plan too.

In terms of details it really has that 'written by locals' feel so really comes up trumps with its recommendations; all the places i tried that were listed were really good recommendations.

On the downside, its real strength is the Mumbai section; the smaller Goa section is easily surpassed by the Lonely Planet (or similar) guidebooks.

In summary - i will definaetly be looking at Time Out guides for future big-city visits.

Very good and thorough information on Mumbai. Could have a little more detail with Goa though.

It's not better than the lonely planet guide but it does have a lot of different recommendations, making it quite a useful additional guide for an alternative perspective

Reliable guide to a large city 5 Mar. 2009
By Ikat - Published on Amazon.com

I like Time Out guides - they are light weight, cover many aspects of a city and point the way to interesting shopping and places to eat. That being said, I wish there was a way to figure out what things are near each other without turning pages back and forth because the guide is organized by type of thing (sites, shopping, eating) and not by neighborhood, which I find way more helpful.

Also, there are some wonderful shops in Mumbai that sell the type of merchandise people like myself are interested in and they are either not included or are written up in a way that doesn't point out how special they are.

Still, compared to options like Wallpaper and Luxe guides, these are, by far, the best option.
