It was shipped to India for me in about 10 days. The packaging was simply superb, not a wrinkle on the map that was encased first, in a thin waterproof plastic sheath, then in a stiff cylindrical cardboard tube, then in a large thick cuboidal cardboard container with more than adequate packing material. Absolutely no problems on that front.
About the map itself I had some confusion about the size, with different reviews mentioning different sizes. The one is have is 43.5 x 30.5 inches, or 110 x 77 cm. It will reflect light a bit, but that is not a major issue for me. It contains all sorts of information beyond cities and political boundaries... For instance, there is a sub-map of land use and vegetation patterns, another of population density, a list of the 8 largest countries by size (I never realized Algeria was that big), time zones, ocean currents, trade winds, intact submaps of Antarctica and the north pole regions...
There is discreet yet prominent National Geographic yellow rectangle branding at the bottom centre, so viewers will know its the real thing. I find it very nice.
We love this map and we are looking forward to moving in and starting studying it.
For international customers: please note that all distances and heights are in feet! We were not aware, so it was a surprise.
