Mumbai Tailormade Holidays

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.

In the Colaba area, be sure to head to the Gateway of India – a former colonial monument built in 1924 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1991 and now a popular emblem and hubbub of the city. The downtown area contains numerous sights such as the Prince of Wales Museum, the Kala Ghoda Art Galleries and the vast green Oval Maidan where impromptu cricket matches are held almost daily. Raj-era architecture is apparent at Horniman Circle, the Town Hall, St Thomas’ Cathedral and Victoria Terminus.

Perhaps sample bhelpuri (Mumbai’s favourite snack) at Chowpatty Beach along what is known as Marine Drive, one of the city’s most popular promenades. No visit to Mumbai is complete without a visit to the bazaars of Kalbadevi and Bluleshwar, north of Crawford Market.

Just beyond Mumbai (and reached by boat) are the rock-cut temples on Elephanta Island. The 4 rock-cut temples are believed to have been cut between 450-750AD.
