When the Suez Canal opened in 1869, Mumbai exploded into life as the gateway to the Indian Subcontinent. Today the city is India’s largest and a powerhouse of industry, trade and business, as well as being home to the world’s largest film industry, Bollywood. It is a city of marked contrasts – immense wealth and extreme poverty, grand colonial architecture and glass skyscrapers, high-end restaurants and bustling street stalls, making it exceptional rewarding to explore. Whether you want colonial grandeur, buzzing atmosphere or authentic India, Mumbai is the place for you.
