Mumbai is developing into a cultural cornucopia of must-see-right-now sights. Though the glamour of some of the wealthier quarters resembled a colourful version of Hollywood, Mumbai provides the starkest cross section of class segregation in the country; though you won’t visit the slums, your eyes will be drawn there every now and then.

Tours that include Mumbai
Forget about the corner squeezes of New Delhi, and the crushing hustle of Rajasthan, Mumbai is the capital of cool; highly cosmopolitan and a touch more progressive than many of its neighbours, the beginning of Mumbai is somewhat reflective of its current social evolution.
The capital of Maharashtra, the original collection of islands melded together slowly, creating one land mass before joining again with Salsette; through natural trial and era, the once tiny factions grew together.
Today, Mumbai is abuzz with every kind of gossipy tid-bit you’d never want to hear, fashion boutiques, five star restaurants, chalet services, expensive hotels, towering skyscrapers and droves of professionals, desperate to get to work on time.
- The Iskcon Temple
- Shree Siddhivinayak Temple
- Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum
- Street Markets for a cheap bargain
Everything about Mumbai is visually arresting, from the simple lives of the poorest citizens, the opulence of Iskcon Temple, the awe-inspiring Shree Siddhivinayak, to the essential Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum, Mumbai is an addictive force to be reckoned with on the international stage.
