Top Reasons to Go

All of India in one city: Mumbai is both modern and old-fashioned, rich and poor, beautiful and ugly—all of India concentrated in one metropolis.

One big feast: From down-home seafood joints to upscale temples of gastronomy, many of Mumbai's restaurants are the best in India.

Experience India's bazaars: The buzz of a typical Indian bazaar is fascinating, and Mumbai is packed with them; time to get shopping.

Check out Chowpatty: No visit to Mumbai would be complete without a nighttime stroll along this carnivalesque stretch of beach.

The Ancient Caves of Ajanta and Ellora: Take a side trip to see the awe-inspiring carvings and paintings here, using Aurangabad as a base.
