Destination Mumbai


Blessed with a natural harbour, Mumbai is one of the busiest ports of India, conducting about 40% of India's maritime trade. Over the years, Mumbai has been transformed into the fastest moving, most prosperous and industrialised city in India with flourishing markets, business houses and many different communities reflecting a cosmopolitan and trendy atmosphere rarely seen elsewhere.
Being the capital of Maharashtra and hub of filmstars, Mumbai as such attracts tourist from all over the world. Formerly known as Bombay, Mumbai is also known as the Gateway of India and a shopper's paradise offering almost every type of cuisine of the world.

City Highlights


Take a walk to the Afghan Church via Gateway of India. This gateway is a monumental arch 26-metre high, built to commemorate the visit of King George V of England and Queen Mary to the city in 1911. After that, explore the Hanging Gardens, which is also known as Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens.

These terraced gardens are perched at the top of Malabar Hill and offer a beautiful view of the Arabian Sea, especially during sunset. Next, head on to Mani Bhavan and Prince of Wales Museum. This museum houses rare and ancient exhibits of Indian history as well as objects from foreign lands such as the Indus Valley Civilisation artifacts, relics from ancient India from the time of the Guptas and Maurayas.
