It lies 710 miles away from New Delhi, the nation's capital, and 17 miles away from Dombivili.

Make an adventure out of visiting Mumbai's magical waterfalls and let the pools of swirling water wash your worries away. The names to take note of are Pandavkada Falls, Har Har Gange Waterfalls and Chinchoti Water Falls.
If you enjoy the re-energizing effects of being by the water's edge, you've come to the right place. Masunda Lake and Kala Talao Lake are just a couple of the peaceful waterways here that you should stop by. To observe any additional wildlife, it's also worth checking out Upvan Lake and Vihar Lake.
You can't go past a day spent at the seaside. You're spoilt for choice in this area, with Girgaun Chowpatty and Aksa Beach two of the best places to stick a toe in the water. Eager to keep adding to your shell collection? You should also drop by Gorai Beach and Marve Beach.
You probably know about its must-see shopping centres and museums, but don't forget that Mumbai has some spectacular natural havens too. Elephanta Caves and Gilbert Hill are two to keep in the front of your mind. Two more areas to check out are Kharghar Hills and Karnala Bird Sanctuary.
After captivating museum exhibits? Go no further than Nehru Planetarium and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum. Remember to ask about any special happenings. Museum enthusiasts also need to check out Indian Museum Ship Vikrant and the Jehangir Art Gallery.
Showcasing a selection of exciting scientific knowledge, the Nehru Science Centre offers everything you need to keep your brain buzzing.
For a day full of discovery and fun, make your way over to the Bombay Natural History Society. As you make your way through the exhibitions, you'll learn about an assortment of weird and wacky things.
If you consider yourself an art lover, don't forget to leave room in your schedule for some gallery hopping. The National Gallery of Modern Art is a terrific place to start. Later on, appreciate the inventive canvases and other exquisite works at the Bodhi Art Gallery and Mod'Art International.
Come face to face with the intriguing backstory of this city and its surrounds at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum and the Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum.
Time spent looking back at history is never a pointless exercise. Let Kanheri Caves and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus help you better understand this destination's past. Why not also make time for the Flora Fountain and Rajabai Tower?
Are you interested in military history? Pay a visit to Bombay Castle and Sewri Fort and find out about their roles as defensive strongholds as well as what happened to those who fought there. Bandra Fort and Karnala Fort have also witnessed many sieges throughout the years.
You don't need to be spiritual to explore Mt. Mary Church and the Haji Ali Dargah, two attractions renowned for their historical and religious value. Keen for an even deeper look into Mumbai's spiritual identity? Continue on to the Global Vipassana Pagoda and St. Thomas Cathedral.
When you are visiting new places, it's sometimes the more obscure attractions that'll stick in your memories once you're home. Two cases in point in Mumbai are U. S. Consulate and Maharashtra State Assembly. Alternatively, you could visit Bandra-Worli Sea Link and Lokmanya Tilak Bridge.

Alternatively, let the professional staff at the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu treat you like a king or queen. After all, holidays are made for indulgence!
Built in the 1920s, this landmark took on symbolic significance when the last British personnel left the country by passing through the giant archway shortly after India declared independence.
Looking out over the Arabian Sea, the gateway is also a symbol of how Mumbai’s modern development has been influenced heavily by international—and particularly Western—culture. The area is a hive of activity, with many locals joining the hordes of gawping tourists in the late afternoon.
A few kilometres off the Mumbai coast are the magnificent caves of Elephanta Island. Temples masterfully carved into the rock around 1,000 years ago depict the mighty Hindu God Shiva as the Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer of the universe. Throughout the day, passenger boats to the island frequently leave from the mainland not far from the Gateway of India.
Formerly known (and sometimes still referred to) as the Prince of Wales museum, this grand building was designed in the Indo-Saracenic style typical of British construction in the city around the turn of the 20th century. Inside the imposing structure is a vast collection of sculptures, paintings, and weapons that illustrate the fascinating history of the region.
A legacy of the brief Islamic rule over Mumbai, this 15th-century mosque is built in the sea a few hundred metres off the city’s West coast and can only be reached at low tide by a walkway. Despite the awkward access, thousands of worshippers come to receive a blessing from the saint whose name the building takes.
Part of a temple built almost a millennium ago in honour of Shiva, the water in this tank here is considered as holy as that of the sacred Ganges River. Stand at the edge and gaze up at the shiny skyscrapers and apartment tower for a snapshot of Mumbai’s contrasting cultures.
Tip *Booking your Tours, Transfers & Airport Parking before you go will save your money & time and ensure a stress free start to your holiday
Watching cricket might be a serene activity in England, but here in India, where the sport is a national obsession, going to a match is an altogether different experience. More than 40,000 people can fit into the circular Wankhede Stadium, and when the national team is playing the atmosphere in the ground is electric. Check who’s playing before you leave home, as international matches generally sell out a long time in advance.
Mumbai is synonymous with Bollywood, and a trip to Film City, the set of many films, is a great way to glimpse the inner workings of this massive industry. If you get lucky, you could even end up appearing in a Bollywood film yourself, as producers are often on the lookout for Westerners to play extras in the dancing scenes.
Either way, make sure you watch one of the finished products before you leave India—the raucous audience is often as entertaining as the film.
The real soul of Mumbai is found in the pulsating street markets. You’ll find huge areas dedicated to jewels, spices, antiques, flowers, and just about anything you might be persuaded to buy.
Interesting highlights are the Anglo-centric Crawford Market and Chor Bazaar (Thieves Market), which once sold knock-off goods but now focus more on antique furniture. Whichever you choose, come prepared to bargain—it’s part of the culture and the only way to get a good price.
Though a city of 14 million is never going to provide a beach holiday, a visit to Chowpatty is a must during a stay in Mumbai. The water is not enticing for a swim, but the atmosphere along the beachfront comes to life in the evenings, when families, groups of friends, and tourists gather for a variety of food and entertainment options.
Here you can sample the best market food the city has to offer, including the Mumbai classic Bhelpuri (puffed rice, noodles, and vegetables in a chutney sauce).
There are thousands of sleeping options in this sprawling metropolis, so finding a hotel in Mumbai that fits with your holiday desires and budget isn’t a challenge.
The grandest place to stay by far is the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel (Apollo Bunder). Rubbing shoulders with the Gateway of India, this century-old monument to British Bombay will welcome you the same way it has all manner of dignitaries and celebrities. Rooms and common areas are regally adorned with wooden furnishings, art masterpieces, and fine crystal chandeliers. The hotel was one of the targets in the terrorist attacks against the city in 2008, but it fully reopened two years later as a symbol of resistance.
Owned by the same group, but with a far more contemporary take on luxury is the Vivanta by Taj President Hotel. Even the basic rooms are immaculately appointed with a mixture of classic furniture and chic design—upgrade to the deluxe suite for a real taste of the good life. Vivanta’s six dining options, offering anything from Western Indian seafood dishes to Italian classics, come highly recommended.
The ITC Grand Central Hotel ticks all the boxes as a top-end accommodation. The location and design are both excellent—little touches like plug sockets that accept US and European appliances are an example of the attention to detail that many hotels lack. This is a family-oriented place with a special VIK (very important kids) programme to keep the young ones entertained.
Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is a little over 30 km from the centre, but the journey can take up to two hours due to traffic congestion around the city. You can get a prepaid taxi or one with a meter from outside the terminal, but watch out for unlicensed taxis that charge exorbitant amounts.
Note that the domestic terminal is a long way from the international one, and you’ll need to use the free shuttle service if going from one to the other.
Moving around Mumbai is not as complicated as it first appears—there are plenty of double-decker buses and taxis and a relatively efficient network of suburban trains. Everything is really cheap, but also extremely crowded—be patient, and keep a strong grip on your belongings.
You could also consider a car hire in Mumbai, though be warned that driving in the city can be an exasperating, and potentially dangerous, affair.
The whole of India carries an elevated malaria risk, and preventative treatment is necessary for travel here. Note that some malaria medication needs to be taken before travel and if you are taking pills, you should not think twice about seeking medical advice if you get sick after coming home.
No other vaccinations are mandatory, but you should get injections for hepatitis (A+B) and typhoid if you are not already protected.
In Mumbai, water from the tap should not be drunk or even used to brush your teeth. High-quality bottled water is cheap and readily available in India. In bars and restaurants, be careful about ordering drinks with ice cubes, or mixed with ice (lassis).
Mild stomach problems are common for Western travellers to India, due to the big and sudden change in diet and weather. Stay rehydrated, and visit a doctor if your upset stomach lasts beyond two days.
Most travellers to India do not suffer any problems. However, Mumbai is an enormous city with extremes of inequality, and street crime does inevitably exist. Western tourists stand out in crowds and could be targets for pickpockets and bag snatchers.
