What to see and do
The backdrop of Hollywood’s award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, Mumbai is a bustling metropolis bursting at the seams with colour and life. Though it sometimes gets a bad reputation for the continued presence of slums and widespread poverty, Mumbai has much to offer to the discerning traveller. Be sure to pay a visit to the world-famous Taj Mahal, a gleaming masterpiece of white marble. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the majestic Taj was erected more than 400 years ago to serve as the final resting place for the then-Emperor Shah Jahan’s wife. Today it is one of India’s most popular attractions, drawing in millions of tourists yearly.
Next must-see in Mumbai - the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market (or Crawford Market). One of the oldest markets in the city, the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule is a central gathering place for locals and foreigners alike. Mingle with shoppers and merchants while browsing through the market’s di-verse offerings, which range from fruit and produce to pets, cosmetics, clothing, and more.
