It is time for India s Maximum city to have a comparable guide to those available for New York, helping the time poor traveller target the best experiences in the city said Fiona Caulfield. The guide is designed for the discerning traveller who wants authenticity in style. Completely handmade in India, the 192-page book, comprises eight sections including an overview of the city with 'must knows and must do's and presents the best places to eat, drink, shop and visit.

Love Mumbai is printed on handmade paper and crafted with care by local fashion designers and crafts people. The hand-woven khadi covers were developed in partnership with Sonam Dubal of Sanskar. Fiona Caulfield, founder of Love Travel Guides, believes that falling in love with a city is just as exciting as falling in love with a person. Your senses become more engaged and you simply feel more alive, she says. The simplest criteria for inclusion in the guide was does this place help you fall in love with this city? If yes, then it was in; if no then, it was out. Simple.
