For everyone wondering why have I chosen a topic like this then I have plenty of reasons that why visiting Mumbai in India is worth your time and money.
‘MUMBAI’ is called the “City of Dreams” and there’s a reason to it that why it’s been called so because there are a number of people from around the country come here to try out their luck in various sectors of industry, be it film or business or studies. What New York is to the USA, is Mumbai for India. Mumbai is the Financial or rather the Commercial Capital of India with around economy of more than around $400 billion (as of 2016).
From nightlife to nature you name it you get almost everything in this one city and so here are the reasons why you should visit Mumbai at least once in a lifetime.
If you’re a party person who can go up all night, then Mumbai is the place for you. The city’s vibrant nightlife with swanky clubs is something that the city has to offer. It is also safer so as to make your night a memorable one.
Mumbai is a city which has much historical significance. Kanheri Caves that dates back to almost 1st century BCE is the most significant place to visit to know the ancient history of Mumbai.
Mumbai will delight anyone who appreciates good architecture. From the 14th century, Haji Ali Dargah to colonial-era landmark buildings such as the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja Terminus, Gateway of India or present-day Mumbai’s attraction such as the Bandra-Worli Sea-Link and the world famous TAJ hotel. Mumbai has many architectural structures that are both storied and impressive.
Mumbai is surrounded by the calming and gushing waters of the Arabian Sea. For a person who likes beach and sea, Mumbai is the city.
FASHION FOR EVERY BUDGET
Mumbai is the unofficial fashion capital of the city. From Bandra Hill Road’s steal deals on the latest trends in stylish boutiques, cheap jewelry found on Colaba Causeway to exquisite designer jewelry boutiques, the city has much to offer fashion lovers regardless of their budgets.
If you’re in Mumbai you’re bound to have the Indian street food challenge. Mumbai has something fantastic to offer every kind of foodie. From historic eateries whose kebabs have fans across the country to legendary South Indian restaurants, Mumbai’s culinary scene is vast and diverse. Parsi Cafes, vada pav stalls, and other uniquely Mumbai food experiences make this city a must visit for any foodie.
Mumbai isn’t just for city-lovers. There’s plenty that it has to offer nature-lovers as well. The Sanjay Gandhi National Park, the largest urban park located within city limits is rich with rare flora and fauna in addition to a resident tiger population. Vast and dense, the forested park is ideal for treks, bird-watching and more. Also, you could visit a sensitive ecological zone, Aarey Road.
In the end, I would just like to conclude by saying “MUMBAI is the city we live in but, BOMBAY is an emotion we all cherish by”.
