Mumbai (Bombay) is India’s commercial capital. Mumbai Airport (30 kms north of the city centre) is a major hub airport so many people pass through this vibrant city.
City Centre & Colaba
Mumbai is a busy, noisy and extremely crowded city – but there is much to attract the short stay visitor including the Gateway of India, Victoria Terminus, Colaba Market, the dhobi ghats, the Dabbawallahs of Churchgate Station, Elephanta Island and a tour of the Bollywood film studios. This is the area in which to be based if you have more than one night and want to do some sightseeing or shopping.
Juhu Beach which is just 20 to 30 minutes away from the airport, and is an interesting place to stay as the beach comes to life in the evenings with stalls and entertainments..

Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International and Domestic airports are 30 km and 25 km (respectively) north of the city. Mumbai is India’s largest airport and most important aviation hub. The heavy traffic means that the journey between the airport and city centre can be very long and frustrating. Therefore if you are in transit or catching an early flight it is sensible to remain nearby.
