A tour of one of the world's biggest slums has been voted tourists' most popular attraction in India, according to a travel site.

The sprawling Dharavi slum in Mumbai became the favourite tourist experience of 2019 in India and even beat the Taj Mahal, said TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice Awards.

A small group tour of Dharavi - by someone who grew up there - is the top preference of tourists visiting the country.
