About Mumbai

Mumbai - or Bombay, as it was formerly known - remains India’s city of dreams. Built largely by the British around one of the best-protected natural harbours in the world, Mumbai is India’s strategic economic centre. The city is also home to the country’s prolific Bollywood film industry, which cranks out more feature films than any place in the world. The streets here are bustling with people from every walk of life and are lined with colourful markets, street food vendors and boutiques. This city is a hive of activity, with excitement waiting on every corner.
