Category: Mumbai – Things to Do

Mumbai, as many may agree, isn’t merely a city; it’s an emotion. The city has been serenaded by many in every way possible. Owing to the fast-paced life that all Mumbaikars are used to, they don’t have the time to stand and stare at the beauty that Mumbai is! This multi-faceted city is a blend of modernity, history, industry, culture, dreams, fashion, food and Bollywood. The best part of Mumbai is that even before you start belonging to it, it starts belonging to you!

Commuting within Mumbai
It is as simple and flexible as it can get, given the various modes of transport available to take you from one place to the other. ”Railways” is said to be the lifeline of Mumbai. In order to have an exhaustive experience of the city, you should choose to travel in the Mumbai local at least once. If you seek an adrenaline rush, try traveling in a Virar local during peak hours (at your own risk, though!) To make lives simpler and more comfortable, there’s Metro connectivity within some stations in Mumbai. You should prefer walking down the lanes of Mumbai to experience Mumbai at its best. However, if the distance is a little too much to be walked, you can choose to commute by autos, cabs and buses, all of which are easily available. If you don’t mind splurging a little, you can use premium cab services offered by Ola, Uber and Meru. The traffic en route may get a little annoying sometimes, but given everything that the city has to offer you, you shouldn’t mind making peace with it.

Places to visit in Mumbai
The land of Mumbai is a shore to the Arabian Sea, the beauty of which you may enjoy by paying a visit to Girgaum Chowpatty or Juhu Chowpatty. A visit the to the “Queen’s Necklace” or Marine Drive will recede you from the hustle-bustle of the city and take you to a quieter and tranquil place within yourself. For a panoramic view of the city, you should take a drive on the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. The Gateway of India is an anchor to the ferries and ships, entering and exiting the territories of Mumbai. Haji Ali Masjid, Mahalakshmi Temple, Siddhivinayak Temple, Mount Mary Church, Babulnath Mandir are havens to those with a religious bend of mind. These are just few of the many places that you could take yourself out to. The rapid urbanization hasn’t taken over the authenticity of the culture here that Mumbai thrives on.
