There are pre-paid taxi stands at the station. The trip to Colaba should be easier early in the morning. Outside the station is the taxi-rank for pre-paid taxi.

Travel Tips for Mumbai

I have never seen anything...

by tennis1

I have never seen anything like the Dhobi Ghat anywhere else, and best of all it is free. Any hotel driver will know where it is. You can hop out of your car and see the 5000 some people who do laundry for Mumbai. My fondest memory is of the Indian people that I met and got to know in Mumbai, from office associates to the staff at the Marriott Executive apartments. People are genuinely friendly and helpful - at least when they aren't driving.

The colonial heritage

by SirRichard

Since in 1668 the British East India Company received this lands from the crown and founded the modern city, Mumbai (former Bombay, from the portuguese name "Bom Bahia", Good Bay) has been filled with many architectural samples from the Metropoli.

It's weird to see such British buildings and double decker buses in such a tropical and hunid atmosphere. Most of them are a bit ruined by the high humidity, but certainly keep that old colonial air that makes them so interesting...

Womens compartment in trains

by M.E.R.V

There was an episode where we were just messing about in the train station jumping in an out of trains while it was stationed of course. My mate and I went in this womens-only compartment without realising we weren't allowed in. It was on one of those really broken down trains to the suburbs. Anyway, it was terribly embarassing because we didn't get what all the fuss was about with everyone staring at us, we simply thought it was because we were tourist and you know people like staring at foreigners there. Until I saw a huge sign at the door saying womens-only carriage. Think we must have scared the hell out of the girlies in there. LOL!

Elephanta Island

by MalenaN

Elephanta Island is situated about 10 km northeast of Gateway of India. The island is about 1050 hectares big and has a population of 1600 inhabitants. Elephanta Island is famous for the rock cut Hindu temples and has been an Unesco World Heritage Site since 1987. In the main cave you can see impressive stone carvings; statues, shrines and pillars.

The temples were created in AD 450 - 750. At that time the island was known as Gharapuri, which means the town of Ghari priests, or is it place of caves. Well. I have come across both meanings and don’t know which is the correct one. In 1534, when the Portuguese came they saw a big stone elephant near the shore of the island and thus renamed it Elephanta Island. This statue can now be seen in Jijamata Garden in Mumbai (a place which I didn’t visit).

If you have visited Ajanta and Ellora and don’t have too much time in Mumbai I don’t think it is necessary to go to Elephanta Island as the caves there are not as impressive as the ones in Ellora and Ajanta. Well, the main cave is, but the rest is not.

It takes about an hour to go by boat to Elephanta Island (see my transportation tip for more information). When you arrive to the island the boat stops at the end of a long pier. After the pier you will walk past souvenir stalls and food stalls, and have about 120 steps to climb to the entrance where you pay the admission. Admission for foreigners in June 2010 was Rs 250. The caves are open Tuesday - Sunday between 9 - 17.

Souvenir and Gifts

by keeweechic

On the way up the stairs you have a good excuse not to reveal how unfit you are by stopping to look at the stalls that line either side. The whole staircase is bathed in blue from the bright canopy’s above it. You can find anything here from jewellery, bags, books, sandstone tricket boxes, painted leaves to carvings and t’shirts.
