Mumbai earlier known as ‘Bombay’ is India's greatest port, financial hub and the trend-setting converging point of the East-West nexus. Perched on an island in the Arabian Sea and separated from the rest of India by a winding creek, Mumbai, is a world unto itself, with a unique intensity that hits you the moment you land. Its culture is contemporary and vibrant and reflects both the affluence and the poverty of the more than 15 million people that inhabit the island. Restaurants, bars, museums and shops are juxtaposed with towering skyscrapers, bustling streets, bright neon lights, and the glamorous film industry of Bollywood.


Meet & greet on arrival and transfer to your hotel.


Post lunch visit the Gateway of India, the principal landmark of Mumbai. Travel along Marine Drive, Mumbai's gracious seaside boulevard and promenade that sweeps from the skyscrapers at Nariman Point to the foot of Malabar Hill. Now become introduced to the lives of the locals with a look at the fascinating Dhobi Ghats. Each morning, laundry from all Mumbai is brought here to be soaped, boiled, beaten and thrashed. After being aired, pressed, folded and wrapped, the clean bundles are returned from whence they came. Stop for photo. Venture past Victoria Terminus, which was built during Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee year - simply extraordinary. Continue to Mani Bhawan, a small museum dedicated to the life and works of Mahatma Gandhi and the bustling Crawford Market, before returning to the hotel.
