Mumbai City Tour

Day Trip To Mumbai
The city of Bombay was officially renamed Mumbai in January 1996. The mumbaites believe that this name came from the goddess 'Mumba', worshipped by the original Koli inhabitants. When the Portuguese arrived they called the harbour Bombaim, which may have stemmed from 'buan bahia', meaning 'good bay' in Portuguese, or was a corruption of the original Koli name. Despite poverty and eye-watering pollution, it is so dynamic that paupers still flock there in hopes of becoming successful entrepreneurs. Mumbai is the stronghold of the Indian film industry. Throughout the year Western and Indian music concerts and festivals and Indian dance shows are performed in Bombay. , Mumbai is the industrial hub of everything from textiles to petrochemicals, and responsible for half of India's foreign trade.

Hanging Gardens - also

gardens on the slopes of the Malabar Hill, just opposite the Kamala
Dhobi Ghat - A unique feature
of Mumbai, the dhobi is a traditional laundryman, who will collect
your dirty linen, wash it, and return it neatly pressed to your
doorstep. All for a pittance. The "laundries" are called "ghats":
row upon row of concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging
stone. The clothes are soaked in sudsy water, thrashed on the flogging
stones, then tossed into huge vats of boiling starch and hung out
to dry. Next they are ironed and piled into neat bundles. The most
famous of these Dhobi Ghats is at Saat Rasta near Mahalaxmi Station
where almost two hundred dhobis and their families work together
in what has always been a hereditary occupation
Chowpatty Beach - Chowpatty
is Mumbai's most famous beach. During the day, it is the hangout
of the happily unemployed who snooze under the shade of its miniature
trees. But in the evening the atmosphere is more like a carnival:
kids screaming on Ferris wheels or taking pony rides, wayside astrologers
making a quick buck, monkey shows, and even the odd self -styled
gymnast who will demonstrate amazing yogic postures for a small
fee. At one closing stages is a row of bhelpuri shops hawking Mumbai's
most popular snack: crisp puffed rice and semolina doused in pungent
chutneys, all scooped up with a flat, fried puri. You might even
catch a film shoot or a street play. In short, for most tourists
Chowpatty is where the action is.
