hi. please feel free to advise me on cheap hotels (500-100 rupees) along the coast from mumbai to calcutta. including those 2 cities. it'll be my 2nd trip to this country.i am interested in traditional boats and fishing techniques.
I dont think thats a realistic budget for a hotel stay in mumbai, though you can check out several places in the mantunga area where they can rent you a bed in a large hostel for as little as 100 rupees a day. Thats 2 dollars with shared bath facilities. Same in kolkata. Look for such places around railway stations. Fishing in mumbai you can see in earnest in palghar slightly north of mumbai about 5 years ago
