Mumbai Holidays

Gateway of India

Previously known as Bombay, Mumbai is city of extremes. From the bustling financial district to the slums made famous in the film Slumdog Millionaire. This city is chaotic on the surface, but take a deep breath, delve in, and you’ll discover the true Mumbai.

As Bollywood’s capital, a holiday to Mumbai is not complete without a Bollywood show. With an authentic mix of Indian culture and tradition, this joyful and colourful extravaganza will not leave you disappointed.  

Explore Mumbai by heading to Churchgate Station and watch the famous dabbawalas pack the hundreds of thousands of lunches they deliver across the city each day. For those who want to dig a little deeper into Mumbai lifestyle, the largest – and possibly most famous – slum of Dharavi is a real eye opener.

Another highlight of Mumbai is the vibrant causeway of Colaba, this thriving shopping and restaurant hub is favoured by the most elite in the city. Here you’ll find boutique shops as well as shopping malls, colourful street stalls, restaurants, and lively cafés.

Marine Drive is an elegant seafront boulevard that connects Nariman Point and Chowpatty Beach. This seafront corniche is lined with palm trees and art deco, with great views of the sea skyline. At sunset, the streets thrive with people and glistening street lights, which gives this promenade a second name, the Queen’s Necklace
