Main Text

It was swampy, mosquito infested and muggy, when Portuguese gave it to England Prince Charles II as a part of dowry of Catherine of Braganza. They considered this little town with little or no potential. But they didn’t know that one day it would be the busiest port and the center of trade, industry and commerce at the subcontinent. Yes, I’m talking about Mumbai, which was once a small fishing village and but today home to many of richest billionaires of the world and global standard of infrastructure and enormous corporate houses and giant financial centers. I think even Britishers, who developed Mumbai to be what it’s today, wouldn’t realize that it could be like this one day.

Mumbai, the Capital of Maharashtra State, is the heart-beat of India’s fast growing economy. The largest city of country, the commercial capital, industrial powerhouse and the fashion hub; Mumbai really has a unique lure that always dazzles the visitors. What’s more is that Mumbai thrives on contrasts. The city is home to the richest and the poorest, you can see streamlined limousines jostling small cycles and three-wheeler autos, sky kissing skyscrapers soaring above crowded slums, and street-side stalls selling goods near shining shopping spots. And that’s why the city draws travelers of all profiles – traders, artisans, musicians, industrialists, entrepreneurs and executives.

When you’re in Mumbai, you have an enchanting array of things to do and see. From museums to monuments and beaches to lively markets, Mumbai is filled with alluring attractions. Street-side dining and bargaining at crowded markets are just awesome. When it comes to sightseeing in Mumbai, again a myriad of options are there to visit on. Some most captivating among them are:

• The Gateway of India

• The Flore Fountain

• Rajabai Clock Tower

• Prince of Wales Museum

• The National Gallery of Modern Art

• The Chowpatty Beach

• Mosque of Haji Ali

How to Reach Mumbai: The city has an international airport, and Mumbai flights are easily accessible from all major airports in India. Being headquarter for both Western & Central Railways sectors, the city has enormous network of trains, which connects it from all regions in India. Local transport system in city is highly advanced and is well-able to handle huge Mumbai population and the tourists alike. An excellent network of local and commuter trains, double-decker buses, taxis and auto riksha provide great connectivity in the city.

When to visit: Though travelers can visit Mumbai all and anytime of the year, the best to plan Mumbai tour is between September and April, when the drainage system and humidity level in the city at their lowest.
