Absolutely unliveable city for long time. Roads are only built for vehicles and not for humans. No pavements to walk and if you try to cross the road, stop breathing and cross and take a deep breath when you get to the other side .
So called rich ppl move about in cars only and proud of themselves even in the filth and smell they come across. Some of the fantastic apartments in Mumbai but as soon as you step out, you enter the different world, I mean you live in luxurious place but once you come out you watch out every step you take and cover your mouth.
It is overpopulated. I was amazed to see so many people. The city doesnt sleep. You do get annoyed when many photograhers approach you at the same time at famous sites and it is very difficult for them to except "no" as an amswer.
he crowds, the hoooting and mayhem of the city is way too much, but its a cultural experience. I only ever spend time in Mumbai to shop, as indian clothing choices and wuality are ample in the various new shopping malls
Good place to visit and explore its great old architectural buildings like CST, Church gate, Municipality building, High court etc Colaba, cuffee parade area is good for marketing and eating out.
However, getting on board or getting down from local trains during office time is very difficult..you have to literally fight!
If you are travelling during any of the festivities please make sure to book your taxi/transport in advance as taxis get booked up very quickly and you will be paying inflated taxi fares.
The taxi drivers will insist on inflated fares without using the meters.I had to pay 700Rs during the Holi festival just to get to the airport!
Mumbai has a certain attraction that's hard to fathom, yet, is very enjoyable. There's the constant traffic with persistent hooting, yet, this does not become a bother.
There's hordes of people, yet, one can find your way around and get from one place to another fairly okay. Life happens in Mumbai, everyone is active and doing something, the shop owners and street vendors having their spot and purpose, the many coffee shops and restaurants providing the fuel necessary for people to grind the day away, University students and school kids bouncing around, meeting friends and just having a great time, scores of tourists trying to find their way around and absorb what this great city has to offer. Everyone just enjoys life, there's so many lessons that cities from across the world can take from Mumbai,I LOVE IT.
Very busy and fast moving. Must always have extra time in hand as traffic is unpredictable. Wonderful for shopping and dining as wide range of shops and restaurants.
Mumbai is a good place to visit. It is rich in culture and history, and has lots of good food. Once downside is that it is very crowded and traffic is terrible.
Local train is good way to explore this city around, very cheap only Rupee 10.00 almost nothing but must knownthe destination and which station must go down.
Going to airport cheapest way are combined metro train and tuktuk
Most beautiful city in India. People are friendlier and not so many con artists. Goods are relatively priced well and higher end shops sell quality products.
You can get whatever you want to buy in Mumbai and the city is much cleaner than other cities.
MUMBAI LOOKS CROWDED, PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, CAR EVERYWHERE... BUT PEOPLE ARE VERY HUMBLE. YOU FEEL FREE THERE, VERY SAFE, NIGHT PUBS THRIVES TILL LATE NIGHT .
.. IF YOU FEEL MUMBAI A LAYER DOWN, IT HAS A LOT TO OFFER.
Mumbai has much to offer. You have to know the places for nightlife and yoy have to be a minimum of 5 days to discover the things you like to do.
This commercial center of India is a microcosm of the entire nation. Though crowded n not very clean, the energy of the city is unmatched.
Friendly citizens are the biggest plus point in this place.
Ich würde mir ein Taxi mieten und mir die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten ansehen,ich würde mit dem Schiff zu einer der Inseln, wie z.
B.Elefanta fahren. Ich würde minutEnlang auf dem Bahnhof stehen und die Züge kommen und wegfahren sehen. Schön ist es auch am Strassenrand essen zu kaufen und gleich zu verzehren oder einfach eine fresh Limes Soda.
It`s one of the best cities in India. Climate is comfortbale and people are very kind and reliable than people in other cities.
It`s much comfortable for me to stay here than staying in New Delhi.
Mumbai is over crowded city with the high population. They have a lot f heritage building, but unlucky they not well maintain.
We enjoyed Mumbai as a stop over. The best hotels are around Juhu beach but you can also get nice ones closer to the airport.
The best shopping areas are around Santa Cruz, Bandra and Coloba. Leopold's in Coloba is a great cafe and the markerts around causeway are good too. The Marina Drive is a lovely romantic spot.
As i said before and will tell this again. The people are very friendly and warm. Easy reach to the hotel from airport.
Big city atmosphere. I only come here for business if I must and sometimes use this as a transit point within in India.
The city is a logistical nightmare away from Colaba and Nariman point. Once you cross the causeway to the immediate suburbs or linking cities, be prepared for a frustrating commute within the city limits.
Busy bustling city with lots of sites.Cab rates are fixed and availabe upon request.At the airports use pre-paid cabs.
.its cheaper and safer
The historical buildings are great sight seeing agenda. This magnificent building have blended historical insights.
Food is generally great especially the Northern Indian cuisine. Many famous and trendy restaurants are there for good food and ambience.
Mumbai is crazy busy with traffic, slums, the rich, the very poor, beggars and flash car. It is a city of extremes.
It's a buzzing city and looks like roads are only built for cars and Rickshaws. 99% of the roads are not walkable .
If there are footpaths, they are life threatening as slabs are broken and can fall into big hole. I would love to walk about but if I dare, there is a fear of getting knocked down. Request the Mubai authority to build high pavements so that cars and other vehicles can't parked and blocked by it. Very noisy and dusty city but that's what you expect. Traffic will destroy Mumbai if people are not allowed to walk and cross the roads. It's almost impossible to cross the roads and you have to run for life, believe me. So called rich people don't walk and just go in expensive cars but in the environment they don't care. It's a nightmare. Does the local government care? I think NOT
Just go and visit.You may like it or not.We enjoyed our stay.If nothing else at least you can say, you were there.
Mumbai is a fast moving city. The people are friendly. You find anything one needs. The is lost of activities.
LOCAL TRANSPOTATION IS VERY GOOD TO USE LIKE - AUTO`S,TAXI`S,BUSES,METRO,LOCAL TRAINS AND LONG DISTANCE TRAINS
Gate way of India, Juhu beach, Iskon temple,Mahalakshmi Temple,film city,etc.are the places of interest.
Fabulous markets, friendly people, exotic culture, vibrant colours and lifestyle. And wonderful food!!
A great city and need a local guide or a friend who lives in mumbai with transport to takes us around.
Traffic all day long, very hard to find a taxi in the night as they don't stop for passengers mostly.
There are many shopping areas as Linking Road and Santa Cruz & fashion street, Crawford market etc. You can get bargained offers most of the time.
