338. Mumbai (Bombay), India
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.
Mumbai is located on the west coast of India north of GOA and south of Surat.

Where To Stay
You can find local hotels in Mumbai or stick to the larger hotel chains.
==>> Try Airbnb.
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.
