Terrorized Mumbai hotel reopens

Mumbai is gradually returning to normal after the terrorist attacks last month. Parts of the Taj Mahal and Trident hotels have opened up for business again.

Some parts of these hotels though will take months to restore.

The Leopold Cafe, a favorite among foreigners, reopened weeks ago and is slowly recovering its old clientele.

Bangalore, often termed to be the Silicon Valley, holds a major chunk of the responsibility of transforming India into an economy to reckon with that it is now and a prospective superpower in the near future. The excellent weather, the warmth of the people, and the beauty of nature have always put Bangalore on the high ranks in a travelers’ book. In the past decade or so Bangalore has become the IT capital of India and immediately the city saw a phenomenal spurt in its tourism sector. Bangalore was no longer a leisure traveler’s delight, but the city became a major financial hub. Soon delegates from all over the world had to visit the city. In keeping with the taste and travel inclination of the international delegates and business travelers a number of world class luxury and business hotels in Bangalore were opened. Big names in the hospitality industry like the ITC Welcom Group, the Taj Hotels etc have multiple hotels in Bangalore. Only recently Taj opened its 5th property in this beautiful south Indian city. A few months back ITC Welcom Group also opened its 2nd property in Bangalore. The hospitality industry is also opening budget hotels in Bangalore that have a fine mix of business and luxury in a flexible budget.
