Mumbai Getting Around

Mumbai is a vibrant city reverberating with energy and action every moment. It is a city that will bewilder even the most ardent travelers. It is so fast paced that it is said if you are on a train platform, you can get inside a train and shoved out of it without you having to move a muscle on our own.

Mumbai is an eclectic mix of contradictions: it is ultra-modern yet conventional; it is high-paced yet the speed takes a pause when you admire the Gothic architecture of the Gateway of India, it boasts of its Bollywood star-studded parties, yet no one misses the famous Ganpati Puja, all these things make it quintessentially Indian.

Known as Bombay till 1995 it was renamed Mumbai after much controversy. It is the most populous city in India and happens to be the commercial as well as fashion capital of the country.
