What to do in Mumbai
Mumbai is one of India’s biggest cities. It’s a bustling metropolis compared to other Indian cities, and travellers can feel the buzz of excitement when they visit here.
The southern part of Mumbai is where most tourist destinations are found, so it’s a great place to start your adventure in Mumbai. You’ll have your pick of colonial buildings, museums and galleries, beaches, parks, religious sites, and modern buildings.
Get your picture taken with Mumbai’s most iconic landmark – the Gateway of India. It’s hard not to be impressed by its size and design. See the walls of Fort St. George next, and stop by other landmarks like the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus building, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Vastu Sangrahalaya. These three stunning destinations are even a feast for the eyes at night!
Mumbai is also home to some of India’s most famous museums and galleries like the National Gallery of Modern Art, Jehangir Art Gallery, and the ones found in the Kala Ghoda area. For spectacular views of the city, the Hanging Gardens on Malabar Hill offers breathtaking views of Marine Drive.
Get to know the locals even more and experience Bollywood. Take a trip to Goregaon’s Film City and enjoy a first-hand experience of filming in Bollywood. Feel like you’re in a Bollywood movie yourself and spend your rupees shopping in Mumbai’s Bazaars. To name a few, there’s the Chor Bazaar, Fashion Street, Zaveri Bazaar, and Mangaldas Market. And since English is widely spoken in the city, you can haggle away for better bargains.
Being a melting pot of various cultures, Mumbai enjoys celebrating all kinds of festivals and events. Learn more about the Maharashtra culture in January at the Banganga Festival or attend the Elephants Festival in February at the amazing Elephanta caves.
