9 Must See Tourist Places in Mumbai

9 Must See Tourist Places in Mumbai
Having been raised in Mumbai for around 12 years, before moving permanently to another beautiful city some 140 kms away Pune, I have closely experienced this city better than most of the people in India. With New Delhi and Mumbai getting regularly featured as the Top 2 International Airports, out of the many we have in our Country, it invariably results into a lot of tourists arriving in these 2 cities. It is not for nothing that Mumbai is often referred to as a City That Never Sleeps. And there are a lot of tourist places in Mumbai, for you to see and experience.

GateWay Of India – One of most popular tourist places in Mumbai

Gateway of India is located near CST Station, off another iconic landmark the Taj Hotel near Appollo Bunder. It is a very popular monument built in 1911, overlooking the Arabian Sea. It used to be a jetty used by the local fisherman around 100 years back, which later got renovated for the British higher authority. This was the structure first seen, when people used to arrive in Mumbai by boats. Today, this has turned into one of the most frequented tourist places in Mumbai. There is also a boat ride you can take, or perhaps even go to Elephanta Caves or simply spend a beautiful evening here taking pictures.
