As India's largest city, Mumbai has a lot going on -- art, culture, big business, gastronomy, and the legendary Bollywood film industry. There's never a dull moment in this vibrant, pulsating city full of life and color. Check out our Mumbai vacation packages, and get ready to say "namaste" to one of the world's most exciting cities.
Most of the city's main tourist attractions are located in the south of the city, as are many of the best hotels in Mumbai. The Gateway of India is the city's most iconic structure, and it represents the days of British colonial rule in India. From here, Colaba Causeway stretches south, and this street is lined with restaurants, shops, and street vendors selling all sorts of food and crafts. Marine Drive runs past the city's beaches, which are great for walking and sampling some street bites -- Chowpatty Beach is particularly well-known for great food. No Mumbai vacation would be complete without a Bollywood studio tour, so you can see where the magic happens! When you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, look into Mumbai car rentals, and drive out to one of the nearby hill stations, such as Matheran or Lonavala.
India has many annual festivals, and Mumbai is a city that loves to party. Holi celebrates the end of winter, usually in February, and is known as the festival of colors. Diwali, the festival of lights, takes place in October or November, and the entire city is lit up with candles, lamps, and fireworks. Exclusive to the city is the Elephanta Festival in February, which celebrates culture and tourism in Mumbai through music and dance.
