How to enjoy Mumbai

Home to Bollywood, where more than 100 movies are made every year, Mumbai sizzles with glamour. Explore the trendy district of Bandra for upscale fashion, jewelry and accessories

  • Take a boat to Elephanta Island. The ancient temple cave complex is cool and quiet, a wonderful respite from the busy city
  • Explore the alleyways of the flea market of Chor Bazaar for the chance to buy everything from plastic flimflam to surprise finds such as vintage Baccarat
  • Tour the heart of Bollywood in Film City, a huge complex that includes 20 studios and many outdoor locations

Throughout Mumbai are examples of a Victorian colonial heritage, including the city’s oldest museum, the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum (formerly called the Victoria and Albert Museum) and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly known as Victoria Terminus). The railroad station was modelled on that of London’s St Pancras and is an outstanding example of glorious Gothic architecture.

For a glimpse of traditional Mumbai, stop by the dhobi ghats where your classic top load washer wouldn’t stand a chance in a head-to-head with the rock, hard soap and sheer muscle of the resident dhobis. One of the most beautiful hub destinations in the city is Flora Fountain. Appropriately surrounded by flowering shrubs, this ornate monument is bordered by Bombay University, the Bombay Stock Exchange and the Gateway of India.
