Mumbai

Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Maharashtra  /  Mumbai

Gateway to India

Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big. The sprawling metropolitan area is home to more than 21 million people, living across several districts that resemble self-contained cities. For many foreign travelers, Mumbai (formerly Bombay) serves as the gateway to India, surprising them with its hectic energy, pollution, and unreliable public transportation. Put those drawbacks out of your mind as you commence your Mumbai tour, and the city will impress with its colonial-era architecture, atmospheric bazaars, secluded temples, and modern neighborhoods filled with hipsters taking advantage of chic restaurants and dynamic nightlife. Unique in every way, Mumbai natives even speak their own local dialect called Bambaiya Hindi. Mumbai is in Maharashtra. Use our India trip planner to arrange your visit to Mumbai and other destinations in India.

Where to stay in Mumbai

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
