Gateway of India

Combining Hindu and Muslim architectural styles, this beautiful monument is a must-see for tourists and the perfect starting point for anyone setting out to explore the city. Catch a boat from the gateway's wharfs for trips to Elephanta Island and Mandwa. For a hint of what to expect, check out these films on Mumbai.

Elephanta Island

Just 10km from the Gateway of India, these majestic rock-cut temples carved into the basalt rock of the island are a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and a spectacle well worth the hour's boat trip to see. To see Mumbai in style, check out our blog for more tips.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus

Formerly and commonly known as 'Victoria Terminus' this historic Victorian train station is a UNESCO world heritage site, with stunning gothic architecture that really stands out in the middle of Mumbai’s bustling streets. Go inside at rush hour for hustle and bustle like no other.

Chill out, cool down

With its funky, bright interior, the Cream Centre is a great place to grab an ice cream and relax. A wide range of Indian, Mexican and Middle Eastern food is also available.

Marine Drive

Take a stroll along this palm tree lined promenade with Chowpatty beach at the northern end. At night, this stretch is called ‘the queens necklace’ because of the twinkling street lights which join the promenade from one end to another.
