Why Mumbai (Bombay), India

This city is complex, very complex. I’m still surprised how it all works in the end. People, traffic and animals all live and play together and it all seems to work somehow. You definitely have to go to see it for yourself.

Where

Mumbai is located on the west coast of India north of GOA and south of Surat.

Where To Eat

Lots of local places to eat here. I’d stay away from street food if possible and ensure you only drink bottled water. Food is actually an attraction in the city with loads of small restaurants. Check out the bakeries and restaurants in the Bandra area.

What To Do

Here is what a friend of mine who is from India has to say:
The main attraction of Bombay is the (crumbling) architecture from the early 1900s located in the central business district. From the main railway station VT (Victoria Terminus) to the courthouses to the Oval cricket ground.
Crawford Market in another area is a maze of warren-like stores selling everything from groceries to clothes to jewelry to birds to alcohol.
A ferry ride away and across from the Gateway of India monument and the spectacular Taj Mahal hotel in south Bombay (SoBo) are the Ajanta and Ellora caves with their frescoes from hundreds of years ago.
The area of Bandra, which is still home to most of the city’s Catholic community, is sort of like Montrose in Houston, Texas,  with a bit of a funky atmosphere and, again, lots of little bakeries and restaurants.
Then there’s also Marine Drive in SoBo which is a curving seaside artery that attracts hundreds in the evenings for the atmosphere and the cool sea breeze.
