Previously known as Bombay, this city became Mumbai in 1995 and is the commercial capital of India. It’s a city of excess and there is huge poverty alongside massive wealth, pandemonium and order, trendy bars and ravaged slums. Old temples sit next to futuristic skyscrapers. Mumbai is also the birth place of Bollywood, one of the biggest film industries in the world.
One of the town’s most famous attractions is the Elephanta Caves. A complex mesh of shrines, courtyards and statues, visiting this holy site is the kind of experience that won’t be forgotten for a lifetime.
After your flights to Mumbai are booked and you’ve arrived, one of the best ways to spend your time is to meander through the streets and markets, watching life as it goes by in its full noisy glory. Be sure to pay a visit the Crawford market, a relic of the British in India, or buy some mementos in the Chor Bazaar. There are also plenty of examples of historic colonial buildings with some of the most impressive ones being in south Mumbai.

The city contains some of India’s best restaurants so it’s perfect if you want to try some tasty Indian cuisine. If you’re looking for more rustic dishes, go to Rajdhani and have a Rajasthani thali (mixed plate).
In particular, the club Ra’s has an open roof so you can enjoy the stars while partying.
With three distinct seasons, summer, the Monsoon season and a very warm winter, the town can become hot and humid. Bear in mind that the best time to visit is the winter when it is not humid and not lashing with heavy rains that often result in flooding.
Mumbai is a town that can confuse and intoxicate travellers but put your best foot forward and don’t look back as you enter a town that is indeed a rising star on the world scene.
