Top 3 Places for Accommodation for a Tourist in Mumbai

Mumbai, the New York of India, also euphemized as “the City of dreams”, is the birthplace of the second largest film industry (Bollywood) in the world. For a tourist, there are plenty of options to choose from, ranging from delicious local street food to hovering in the bazaars. Every section of the society can be seen toiling in this city that never sleeps. Mumbai, being the giant metropolitan honcho that it is, flaunts a very distinct architecture, one not native to other parts of the country. There is enumerable number of options to stay here. However, to make the most of your Mumbai Darshan experience, choose one of our suggestions in the top 23 places for accommodation for a tourist in Mumbai:

1. South Mumbai

By far the best place to stay in Mumbai is the area of South Bombay, a neighbourhood in Mumbi where the heart and soul of the city lies. The Gateway of India is the first one to greet the voyagers of the Arabian Sea and overlay Indian hospitality. The famous Elephanta caves, known to have carvings and sculptures of the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva, are accessible via a short boat ride to the Elephanta island from here. Mumbai, being a coastal region, enjoys the benefit of beaches with Marine Drive Chowpatty being most famous one. It is a place where couples can be seen taking long walks by the sea shore and enjoying the occasional “Bhutta” or roasted corns. History buffs can visit the Victoria Terminus and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya which has many accounts of ancient and medieval Hindustan. The Taj Mahal Hotel, known as much for its beauty as the incendiary that took place years ago, can make your eyes pop out with almost 600 rooms and 5-star service. Put your bargaining skills to the test in Fashion Street, Crawford Market and Colaba. These markets have everything available at reasonable prices, thereby being heaven for shopaholics seeking cheap thrills.

2. Juhu

Next on the list is the friendly neighbourhood of Juhu, which itself is a beach. Although it doesn’t enjoy the reputation of being the cleanest, yet provides decent opportunities to look around and have fun. If you are a big Bollywood fan, you wouldn’t look further than Juhu; it houses the residences of the greatest Bollywood stars of all times. The famous ISCKON temple has an astonishing architecture plus has the wonderful sight of foreign devotees embracing Lord Krishna with their prayers.

3. Bandra

One of the most posh areas of the city where all the expats and big players reside, Bandra is located on the seafront of Mumbai. The whole area has beautiful mansions of famous Indian people and actors. From entertainment complexes, malls, restaurants, hotels to ‘thellaas’ and ‘tanga vaalas’, Bandra has it all for a fun family outing.

Mumbai is a place for all, with extremely polite and humble locals being an amazing plus to this star struck city.
