Mumbai is India’s largest city and its entertainment capital, which is fondly called the City of Dreams. Mumbai feeds your soul and your social profile in more ways than one. From retail therapy to meals that take you on a journey of exploration, you will have plenty of opportunities to share all your inspirational moments.
Overlooking the Arabian Sea, The Gateway to India monument is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Mumbai, which commemorates King George’s and Queen Mary’s first visit to India. There are also numerous art and history museums, Indian cinema, vibrant festivals and great beaches like Juhu Beach.
Off the shores of Mumbai on Elephanta Island, a must-see is the Elephanta Caves — a collection of cave temples carved from solid rock, dating back to the 7th century. Make your getaway a fascinating one by adding a Delta Vacations excursion to your package like an Elephanta Cave tour or a Bollywood tour.
Mumbai is worth visiting just for its open-air markets, the hustle of vendors and the madness of the crowds. Find tree-lined streets filled with interesting shops and lots of street vendors in the Colaba neighborhood. For handicrafts, brass items or crystals, head to Colaba Market, or for authentic Indian jewelry, go to the Silver Center. For upscale retail therapy, check out the Malabar Hill neighborhood, where high-fashion boutiques are all the rage. Bargaining is the norm in many tourist shops; the price marked may be up to 50% higher than what can be negotiated for the final sale.
South Mumbai’s neighborhood, Colaba, is where you’ll find tree-lined avenues filled with interesting shops, celebrated restaurants, iconic cafes and lots of street vendors. The Bandra neighborhood, best known for its association with Bollywood, is also home to some of the city’s best bars and nightclubs — making it the coolest neighborhood to see and be seen. If you’re looking for delicious seafood, head over to Juhu Beach.
Round-trip airfare aboard a Delta Global Airline Partner is included with your Delta Vacations package to Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai (BOM), which is Mumbai’s primary airport for international flights, and is approximately 19 miles north of the city. Taxis provide convenient transportation to the city center. For transportation to and from the airport, Delta Vacations offers one-way and round-trip private transfers you can add to your package. Flights usually arrive late at night, so it is recommended that you pre-purchase your transfers before arrival.
