Also known as Bombay, the enormous Indian city of Mumbai is situated on the eastern shore of the country. Many elements of the city sit in stark contrast with each other; rich estates sit just near slums and the wealthy pass the poor on the streets. In spite of this, it’s an incredible place to visit.
Bollywood lovers will doubtless know that Mumbai is the centre of the Bollywood industry. Tours of the Bollywood filming locations are available and also serve as a great way to see the city.
The Gateway to India is a popular spot with tourists and locals. It is a monument built during the British rule, it’s just under 100 years old and is well worth seeing! Just east of the city are the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Elephanta Caves, which feature carvings that are more than a thousand years old!
For some family fun, there’s also the EsselWorld amusement park, which is India’s largest and features roller coasters and thrill rides.
