Mumbai is home to Bollywood, centre of India's famous film industry. Mumbai's Metropolitan Region is also the sixth most populous metropolitan area in the world with a population of around 25 million, so you'll love how cosmopolitan and rich the cultural opportunities are. From food, to fashion, to entertainment, Mumbai is truly a multi-cultural masterpiece.
Tourists can spend weeks in Mumbai, but if you only have a few hours or days, be sure to see Mumbai's awesome Harbour waterfront, the iconic Gateway of India arch, and Elephanta Island where you can see ancient and spectacular cave temples dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.
