Slum tours are India’s most popular tourist destinations Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards recognized the most popular tourist attraction in India for 2019, and it ain’t visiting the Taj Mahal. Dharavi in Mumbai, one of the largest slums in Asia, was not only recognized as thetop experience, it also ranked in the top 10 of “Travelers’ Choice Experiences” in all of Asia. Why? “Slum on in” Slum tours areon the risearound the world, and the influx of visitors -- and, more importantly, their cash -- has helped prop up industries in the 533-acre shanty-clad craw of Dharavi. But, while it may be a tourist destination, it’s also important to remember the city is exactly that -- ashanty town, scattered with open sewage piping and lined with dirty huts so warped they could be blown over by the faint breath of an angry pig.
