The commercial heart of India, modern Mumbai beats with an infectious energy reminiscent of a driving Bollywood dance tune. Mumbai's importance began during the eighteenth century when the city established itself as a major trading port. This boom carried on throughout the nineteenth century when, in particular, the opening of the Suez Canal made Bombay, as it was known then, one of the largest ports in the region.
Today there are many attractions scattered throughout the city of interest to visitors. The iconic Gateway of India and the famous Taj Mahal Hotel are arguably the most recognisable sights in the city. From the British colonial period, also consider exploring the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai University and the High Court. Strolling along the promenade facing the Harbour is also very satisfying.
A great excursion idea is taking the boat across to Elephanta Island for the ancient rock carvings. Also while in the city, watching a Bollywood movie in an Indian cinema is a must. Bollywood films in general are not known for their brevity, so if you don't speak Hindi, choose a film that has less dialogue and more dancing or sweeping scenic panoramic shots. Cricket is serious business in Mumbai, so if local teams are playing consider savouring the experience live at the Azad Maidan.
