What did you think of Mumbai?

Jump to last reply

We've spent a couple months in India in the past, so we're old India hands. But, this will be our first time in Mumbai. We fly into Mumbai as the first stop in our six week trip to the south of India, and I am wondering how long to allocate to Mumbai since it likely will be our only time there.

We are typically not huge fans of large cities, and we don't always feel compelled to just visit the typical tourist sights. What we've seen of Delhi we did in four different 6 hour chunks on days we were going through Delhi. That was fine.

We like to walk and enjoy the general atmosphere of places, and from what I've been reading it sounds as though South Mumbai is quite walkable. And, we like seaside or water areas. Even though we typically find walking through unique food markets fascinating, we are not shoppers, and we don't intend to go out at night to party.

So, what did you think of Mumbai? How long do you recommend spending there for people like us? Thanks much for the insights.
