India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, the city’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
Junnar is another winner when it comes to weekend getaways from Mumbai. The place is serene and thus offers one a time to relax and be one with nature and enjoy the blessings it bestows. This historical city at the foothills of the Sahyadri Range is home to the Shivneri Fort and a weekly vegetable market is the most happening event here that draws tourists from all across the country to visit the place. At Junnar one can get involved in milking a cow at daybreak for one’s own benefit (milk tea or coffee) and then go about picking from the freshest of vegetables for one’s daytime meal. Enjoy watching the locals dance during the night time as they try to appease the local deity or Devi. One must pay a visit to this place sometime to enjoy the best of what Mother Earth has given to us.Distance from Mumbai - 155 Kms
