We are 4 girls coming from Bangkok to Mumbai for 5 days in January 2013. We have a male friend picking us up from airport in Mumbai. But being that this is our first trip to Thailand and India we want to know if you think it is safe to fly on Bangkok airways? Is it reliable? we notice only one flight from Bangkok to Mumbai and only one flight from Mumbai to Bangkok. How reliable is it? Any tips? Also extra tips on what kind of nature outings we can do in or around Mumbai?
Thank you in advance!

Can't answer your airline question, as I've not flown with them. I flew IndiGo from Bangkok to Mumbai earlier this year on a one way ticket and it was a good experience.
Also extra tips on what kind of nature outings we can do in or around Mumbai?
Sanjay Gandhi National Park is about an hour via the very frequent local trains from Churchgate and Mumbai Central, etc., stations. Get off at the Borivali station, from where a 15 rupee auto ride takes you to the park entrance. I went there to see the ancient Kanheri Caves. You might be able to rent bicycles at the park entrance for what looks to be an enjoyable ride through the countryside. It looks like fine hiking country as well.
I suggest picking up a guidebook for Mumbai.

4Girls,you have got #1 all excited,asking you to change your plans...Don't!....In Mumbai,you can take a trip out to the caves,Run around the Colaba area,and relax...Bangkok Air? I don't know them,but I have never heard of them messing up and they only fly once a week...so small chance they will screw it up one flight a week...Indigo will charge you for water on the flight.....at least domestic in India they do..perhaps they give water on long haul flights to keep you all quiet......

5Agree with Jazzman on sticking with Bombay. It is a much nicer city than Delhi. I have been some 15 times to Delhi and about 40 to Bombay. Whenever I need to go through big B I always stay a few days just because it is such a nice place. Real big city, with big city people.
