Located on the waterfront in Colaba to the south of Mumbai, it is the most recognized Monument in Mumbai. Its surroundings are colorful with many vendors introducing a variety of Indian products. I got to this site by boat and actually would recommend it to be your starting point to exploring Mumbai.
NATIONAL PARKS AND CAVES :

I never thought a place with millions of inhabitants and huge developments can accommodate a national park. You will be surprised that Mumbai has a national park within its limits. Within the park I discovered a variety of ancient Buddhist caves hand curved into volcanic rock.
MAGNIFICENT HERITAGE BUILDINGS :

Time to go street shopping! Well, welcome to Colaba causeway and purchase attractive souvenirs, clothes and shoes at a very cheap price at Linking Road and some fresh Indian food and spices.
I admired to have a brush with some of the stars I see in movies, feel the place where over a hundred films are produced annually. This was made a reality to me. You wish to be in a Bollywood movie rather than watch a set one? Mumbai is the center of the action in Film City.
FABULOUS BEACHES :

All said experience is the best teacher. Visit Mumbai this holiday season and the great adventure you will get will be a story you will live to tell.
