About Mumbai

The official name of Mumbai was Bombay till the year 1995. As per the survey in 2011, it is the most populated city in India. The population of Mumbai is nearly 12.4 million. Mumbai is located on the Konkan coast on India’s west coast. The location of Mumbai makes for its natural, deep harbour. Mumbai was named as the alpha world city during the year 2008 and holds the record for being the wealthiest city in India. Mumbai boasts three UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the , Elephanta Caves,and Victorian and Art Deco buildings. There are so many places to visit and things to do in Mumbai for everyone. Whether you are going solo or with friends, you are bound to enjoy the city as enthusiastically as ever. Mumbai is constituted of seven islands which were home to the Koli people as they were the early inhabitants there. These islands were ruled by successive indigenous empires for centuries. After that, the Portuguese Empire ruled these islands before they were ultimately taken over by the East India Company in 1661. The architecture of Mumbai was reshaped during the middle part of the 18th century. The very famous Hornby Vellard project took charge of restructuring Mumbai and reclaimed the area spreading from the seven islands to the sea. Mumbai was remodelled into a wonderfully modern city. Several futuristic amenities and facilities changed the face of Bombay. The reclamation project was completed in the year 1845 which saw Bombay being transformed into a main seaport. Major economic and educational development saw Mumbai emerging as a modern city during the 19th century, and by the next century, Mumbai became the capital of the new state of Maharashtra.

Mumbai enjoys a tropical climate for most parts of the year which makes it a favorite hub for tourists from all over the world. While the days may be warm and humid, the evenings are usually cool and pleasant. Although Mumbai is a year-round destination, it is better to avoid visiting Mumbai during the monsoons.

Some of the prolific landmarks such as the Taj Hotel and Oberoi contribute to the rising tourism of Mumbai. There are an array of street markets and nightclubs that make Mumbai one of the coolest places to visit. The beaches of Mumbai are one of the most popular ones in India. From Juhu to Bandra - it is always at the mouth of any traveler who has visited the place already. And for those who haven’t got a taste of it, it is high time to plan a trip to Mumbai.

    Trip was ok. And disappointed with Pick Trip agent which was not fulfilled most of our requirements as per the original booking, The Hotel rooms are different form the booking, And accommodated the other hotel which was take more time by agent as finally checked in the hotel at 6.pm which was supposed to 12.00 pm. So whole half a day trip planned was cancelled due to the hotel check in. And the hotel breakfast not available as per booking which is different from the booking. But driver was too good and friendly to manage with cover most of the places but still few's are missed out as per the booking. Overall enjoyed and OK. Thanks

    Satish's 5 days trip to Mumbai

    Suhas was good at planning all the things and his responsiveness and support was great. He is very polite and coordinated with another hotel and provided us different hotel when there was a problem. Though he helped us to change the hotel on the next day, we faced difficulty for one night as the opted hotel (Royal Hills @Mahabhaleswar) maintenance is not good and the hotel staff behavior is ridiculous. Driver is good but he does not know much places when we asked him where to dine out. Also he is having very less idea on the routes and different tourist spots to visit. In every hotel, breakfast available after 9 AM. I don't understand how this policy has made for tourist places. I was disappointed about the breakfast timings and it was not informed earlier and did not stated in any of the quotes.
