- Mumbai (Bombay)Nov 25, 2013
I've been to Mumbai 5-6 times and find it one of the most amazing cities in the world.
It's the New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco of USA all combined into 1 amazing city.
People go there frmo all over India for the land of opportunity and diversity. The food, whether
at the fancy restaurants, hold in wall cafes or on the street itself, is amazing! The city is
home to Bollywood which creates more movies than anywhere in the world. Bollywood movies
are loved by everyone for their glamorous dress, songs and scenery, but they have their serious sides as well.
The most amazing part of Mumbai is the people....millions of people all living together, but so respectful of each
other...the city runs so smooth.....traffic is the one negative of all big cities and Mumbai def has it's share...
3am is the best time to drive your nice cars around :)

For many people, Mumbai is the first glimpse of they'll get of India -- crowded, polluted, noisy, jumbled, confusing, fragrant, stinking, rich and poor and completely itself. If you're entering via this route, keep this in mind: Bombay is NOT India - it's an own-world, a vibrant and buzzing and intoxicating and frustrating place, like any other city of more than 15 million people. So: let's get to what's good:
(1) Great beaches (have some chaat at Chowpatty)!
(2) Cool museums (Price of Wales Museum has some serious treasures and a great audio-tour)
(3) Awesome nightlife (party with Bollywood stars, if your wallet will stretch that far)
(4) The Mumbai Harbor and the Elephanta Caves (take the tour from the Gateway of India - it rocks).
(5) Fabulous food (Bombay duck, fabulous South Indian dosas, fine biryanis, and amazing Goan seafood).
There's nothing you can do to prepare you, so pack some patience and a sense of the absurd and jump in with both feet -- it's the only way to live like a real Mumbaiker!

This is the city of India's largest movie industry. Don't be surprised if someone approaches you to be an extra in the next Bollywood hit. Make sure to check out Hotel Taj (gorgeous colonial architecture) and Colaba Causeway (your one-stop shopping street market)! Bombay is also known for its nightlife. The clubs are expensive but they're worth the hype. Prive is the best one in town.

To say that here one lives "Life in the fast lane". I loved traveling in Mumbai Locals, affable tuktuk wallas as compared to tuk tuk wallahs of Delhi. Spending evening in Marine Drive is awesome and not to mention the super street food.

Mumbai is an amazing city that offers the great Indian cuisine tourists expect, along with the big city feel and "hip" spots one would find in London or New York. My first night there I enjoyed the pleasure of dining at the delicious Cafe Zoe (Western food) and fist-pumping the night away at a nearby club. During the day, my crew toured the city, taking in the many historical sites, including The Gate of India and Bombay's version of Big Ben. I look forward to visiting Mumbai again soon.

I love Mumbai. Massive, loud, crammed with people and very entertaining. There are certainly lots of sights to see - The Gateway of India and the neighbouring Taj Mahal hotel, Elephanta, CST, Haji Ali Dargah are just some examples.
However, like a lot of big cities, Mumbai is also a great place for just wandering about, flying around town on the trainlines, eating lots of good food and going to fun bars.
In short, it's huge, complex and you can do pretty much anything there. Not for nothing is it known as the City of Dreams.

Home city and love it despite the crazy traffic snarls, real estate prices, monsoons et al. The people, the fast pace of life and the opportunities makes everyone flock here. Be sure to catch the Gateway of India, Dhobi ghat, Crawford market etc when you are here!

Cant go India and not visit this city. This is the entertainment hub of India. Some of the best foods and best clubs. Its Bollywood central. There are also great outdoor and heritage sites to visit.
