Mumbai the mayanagari. The city has many history within it. The start of Bollywood industry to the famous Taj . Every time I visit Mumbai the city becomes new. May be because we are developing so fast.
Last weekend I got to visit Mumbai with my parents. And I was the tour guide apparantly. The day was bright not too hot as per Mumbai wether . And perfect for travellers.
Pune to Mumbai 3 hrs by road and perfect for one day outings.
As per my experience below are the places easy to cover if you have just 24hrs in hand and also to get the Mumbai taste
Gateway of India :
The Gateway of India on the bank of Arabian sea. Built in the time of British rule a must visit place. In front of it the famous Taj Mahal palace. The beauty multiplies with the two standing together.
Spend some time there and you can head to Elephanta caves. It's the small Iceland preserving the caves and the architecture of ancient India. There will be small boats and ferry available . Just need to go before 12pm as it takes almost 1 hr journey from gateway and last boat leaves at noon.
