Perched next to the Arabian Sea, this sprawling city thrums with energy. Once known as Bombay, Mumbai is more than just a port – today it’s an economic powerhouse and the home of Bollywood.
Mumbai’s rich history is etched all over the city. Marvel at the sheer scale and beauty of the Gateway of India, overlooking the Arabian Sea. Built in the early 20th century, it’s a testament to the grandeur of the British Raj. Stand beneath the gateway and take pictures of its intricate decorative motifs. From here, head to the iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel to witness its opulence. This luxury hotel was only built in 1903 but soon became a famous monument in Mumbai. Stop for lunch in one of the grand dining rooms or embark on a guided tour to discover more about its history. For the ultimate experience, splash out on a night’s stay in one of the lavish rooms. Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is another must-see. The jaw-dropping façade is a thing of beauty, featuring a blend of Victorian, Hindu and Islamic architectural styles.
Experience bustling Mumbai at its best with a trip to Crawford Market. Haggle with traders and get locally-made garments, handicrafts and spices at discount prices to take home with you. The Colaba Causeway street market is also worth a stop – along this retail stretch you can pick up more souvenirs, with jewellery and artefacts up for grabs.
Catch the ferry from the Gateway of India to the beach town of Alibaug, just under 3 and a half hours away. Explore the old fish market, admire the ancient forts overlooking the town and relax on the sand at VarsoliBeach. Sanjay Gandhi National Park is also nearby. Travel to this slice of tropical paradise and you can discover ancient caves, beautiful waterfalls and see a vast range of wildlife.
