Not to miss
Mumbai is called the financial capital of India and it has such a perfect mix of history, culture and modernity that can make any visitor go wild about it!
We had such a good time savouring the local, Mumbai flavors such as Pav Wada (also known as Indian Burger) and Pau Bhaji. We where also looking for good party options for the night so we took a stroll down to pubs and discos lining in Colaba and Bandra. These pubs are open well around 2 pm in the night... The next day we headed for the most important promenades in Mumbai: Marine Drive, Bandra Bandstand and Worli Sea Face. We had excellent views of the sea and we saw many people being hyper sporty and crowding the promenade in the mornings and evenings! The view of Marine Drive, right from Nariman Point to Malabar Hill is worth seeing from the Marine Drive Flyover. However if you want to have a skyline view of South Mumbai then you can head to Hanging Gardens, another sight we fully enjoyed and took so many photos of!
Since Mumbai is a busy cosmopolitan city, it has also many temples such as Mahalkashmi Temple for Lakhmi (goddess of wealth), Babulnath temple for Lord Shiva, and the Jain Temple. We walked around the grounds in such a relaxed atmosphere and felt the intense surroundings of Mumbai slowly melt away!
These caves are not that well know but once you visit this place the pictures one can take are countless. These caves are very old and have great historic importance. The beauty of these caves is worth capturing.
