For more than 140 years, the workers at Dhobi Ghat, a virtual outdoor Laundromat, have been hand-washing an estimated 500,000 articles a day – from hotel linens to personal clothing items. There is no other place like this in the world and this morning’s visit offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the people and stories of this sprawling metropolis. Next you’ll visit Dharavi, a densely populated district in the heart of Mumbai. With more than 1 million people living here, Dharavi has been called “Asia’s largest slum”. Although there is indeed evidence of crushing poverty, Dharavi is in fact a hive of entrepreneurship where local businesses, many of them 1-room operations, transact an estimated $1 billion annually. With our native-born guide leading the way, your time here promises to be an enlightening, powerful, eye-opening and inspiring experience of the human spirit.

End your sightseeing with a privately guided tour of Mani Bhavan.
