Around Mumbai in 24 hours

August 7, 2017 / Mumbai

Mumbai is a city with a lot to offer the discerning traveler. But don’t lose heart just because your stay here is short. With careful planning, you can make the most of your time and still manage to get quite a bit of sightseeing done. Just decide what you’d like to do, hop into an Uber and head out!

Where to stay

If you're an indulgent traveler, check into the Taj Mahal Hotel, one of Mumbai's most elite and magnificent hotel overlooking the Gateway of India and Arabian sea. For budget travelers, Waterstones and Shalimar hotels are equally good options. But if you're looking for something trendy and quirky, then Mumbai's very own B&B, Abode is the perfect place to stay. 

What to see

Mumbai has several sites that feed all kinds of traveler interests. If you're into architecture, then stop by South Mumbai to view the art deco buildings, Rajabhai Tower, Gateway of India and Victoria Terminus. If you're a history buff, head to Bhau Daji Lad museum or Mani Bhavan, Gandhiji's home in Mumbai. If you're seeking picturesque views, Queen's Necklace, Bandra-Worli sea link and Sanjay Gandhi National Park are just the spots for you.

What to do

Cinema lovers can check out DDLJ running for over 100 years in Maratha Mandir, a single theatre in Mumbai or participate in a Filmcity Tour. Theatre aficionados should definitely spend time watching interesting plays at NCPA or Prithvi theatre. Art enthusiasts can view collections of various artists at Jehangir Art Gallery and Prince of Wales museum. If none of these activities make the cut and you're looking for something adventurous, head to Karnala Bird Sanctuary, near Panvel.
