Mumbai City Guide

Brief History

Formerly known as Bombay, the city of Mumbai is one of the busiest and most eclectic cities in India. The origins of the city prior to the coming of Europeans are somewhat mysterious. The islands on which Mumbai now stands were captured by Portuguese settlers in 1498, and ceded to England shortly thereafter. The English saw in Mumbai an ideal port for trading goods between India and their homeland, and so for hundreds of years Mumbai was one of the main gateways between India and the rest of the British Empire. Today, it is considered one of India’s main cultural capitals, largely due to the fact that it is the home of the world-famous cinema industry known as “Bollywood.”

Transportation

The majority of international flights to Mumbai come into Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, located about 28km from the city center. Because of the city’s immense popularity with tourists and its importance as a world financial center, huge numbers of people take flights to Mumbai every day from all over the world. To get into town from the airport, it’s best to use a taxi – to avoid high fares, go with a prepaid “coupon” taxi rather than a metered cab.

Getting around inside Mumbai is not particularly easy, especially for tourists. Do not attempt to drive or rent a car: there is almost no parking, traffic conditions are extreme, and road conditions in many areas are substandard. Leave any driving to experienced local residents. Taxis are plentiful, but suffer from many of the same traffic problems, and trains are far too crowded for the comfort of the average tourist. The most popular option for visitors is to use buses. Buses are somewhat crowded (elderly people, expectant women, etc. have priority for seating), but not as bad as the trains, and they can reach almost any corner of the city.

Popular Attractions

  • Mumbai’s multicultural history is evident in the wide range of place of worship that are to be found in the city, representing primarily Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity, but also including Judaism and Zoroastrianism.
  • The markets of Mumbai are unlike anything else in the world – they are crowded with people and are an excellent opportunity to shop as the locals do.
  • Mumbai has some of the finest museums and galleries in India. The “Prince of Wales Museum” is especially well-regarded.

Food

Indian food, with its fragrant aromas and distinctive flavors, is some of the best in the world, and there are few better places to get it than Mumbai. Street food and cheap restaurants will typically serve the most authentic food, whereas high-end restaurants generally serve a “tourist” variety. There are far too many wonderful Mumbai dishes to name, but one food item to be on the lookout for is vada pav – a potato patty served in a unique bread with a variety of sauces.

Tips for Travelers

  • There are 3 languages that are commonly spoken in Mumbai: Marathi, the local language of Western India; Hindi, the lingua franca of the whole northern part of the country; and English, which is widely used among young people and well-educated adults.
