Mumbai Travel Guide

Things to do in Mumbai

Most of Mumbai''s typical tourist sites are situated around the built-up areas of Mumbai''s southern peninsula (and most notably, Colaba) - but this cosmopolitan city boasts attractions reflecting Mumbai''s rich history, as well.

The colonial buildings that are scattered throughout Mumbai remind travellers of the history not only of the city, but of the country as well. The best examples of this architecture can be seen in the Gateway of India, the CST Terminus, and the Police Headquarters; while the Prince of Wales Museum, founded in the early 20th century to commemorate a visit from George V, is a great resource for learning about India''s history.

While you''re in the area, check out the Taj Mahal Hotel, one of the oldest five-star hotels in India and also a site for the 2008 Mumbai terrrorist attacks. The Elephanta Caves - a very popular tourist excursion - are also located nearby, and the former home of Mahatma Gandhi, the Mani Bhavan Ghandi Museum, is a Gujarati-style house featuring three floors for visitors to explore all things Gandhi.

For great views of Mumbai, visit the terraced Hanging Gardens (now known as the Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens); head to the Marine Drive Chowpatty (beach) for people-watching; and for a really authentic Mumbai shopping experience, look no further than the always-crowded, bright and colourful Crawford Market.
