the cradle of dreamers
Mumbai (or Bombay) is truly the City of Dreams, even for a traveller as the destination offers myriad things to do. Admiring the ocean view at Marine Drive is as engaging here as dancing on city streets during Ganapati celebrations. From historical places like the Gateway of India and Victoria Terminus to religious centres like Haji Ali and Siddhivinayak Temple and other famous attractions such as Juhu Beach, the list of places to visit in Mumbai is long and fulfilling. With hi-end shopping malls in South Mumbai and iconic markets like Crawford and Linking Road, the city appeals to shoppers too.
The crowded street food joints, countless restaurants in Mumbai and notable eateries like Leopold Café serve everything from gourmet to desi. Don’t leave the city without trying the vada pav, which is the quintessential street food for Mumbaikars. Another unmissable part of the city is its dynamic nightlife, which can be best enjoyed at Tryst, Rude Lounge and other pubs and bars in Mumbai.
You can spend the weekend indulging in fun activities like sailing to the Elephanta Island, watching a horse race at Mahalakshmi, taking a Bollywood tour, twilight bowling at Smaaash and more. In case you wish to head out for a quick weekend getaway, hill stations near Mumbai such as Lonavala and Mahabaleshwar and other nearby tourist places like Alibaug and Igatpuri make an ideal retreat.
