Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Spas and Mount Mary Basilica. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mumbai: Alibaug (Mandwa Beach & Awas Beach). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at Gateway of India, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mumba Devi Temple, take in the views from Bandra-Worli Sea Link, and don't miss a visit to Rajabai Clock Tower.
