So why Mumbai?
Well Mumbai, which was formally known as Bombay is known by many as the entrance to India. It is the largest and most populated city in India and therefore is home to an array of cultural sights and experiences both ancient and modern day. The most famous structure in Mumbai is the Gateway to India which is located at the Apollo Bunder Waterfront. Built in the early 20th Century to commemorate the landing of King George V it might not be as old as some of the cities architectural wonders, but it remains just as poignant. A symbolic arch which acts as a welcome celebration to all those arriving into the metropolis that is Mumbai and inviting them to further their journey into India.
When you think of Mumbai you think of the eclectic opulence of Bollywood, here the Hindi film and TV industries make their bed, and it is even presently noticeable throughout the warm and welcoming city. Mumbai is far more diverse than the rest of India and it is vital that on your travels you allow yourself to fully appreciate and get lost in the diversity. Mumbai generally has three seasons: summer, monsoon and winter. Although if you are looking to visit winter can be the perfect time as the temp regularly sits between 17-30 degrees.
