Mumbai wedding - thanks for the encouragement!

by shooby

Thanks to all who encouraged me to make the trip to Mumbai last month. We attended the wedding of my husband's boss's sister (!) and it was AMAZING! We all (4 year old son included) had a fantastic time. We were so well looked after, everyone was really friendly. The wedding events were fascinating, colourful and full of music, dancing and fabulous food. My son stayed up late every night with no ill effects ;-) and we were so glad we went.

It was very shocking to hear of the events which ensued a few days after our return. I hope that nobody here was caught up in it.

Thanks again for the help.

Hi Siaron - so glad to hear you had a great time! I remember how worried you were especially about finding food for your son. Aren't the weddings here wonderful? Can't wait to see your photos! Happy Travels! (And P.S. What did you all end up wearing? Western or Indian wear?)

Travel Tips for Mumbai

Landing in Mumbai

by keeweechic

Arriving during the early hours of the morning is probably not the best first sighting of Mumbai or indeed India but at the same time I was amazed by the activity still buzzing at this hour.

The airport itself was a bit of a shock to the system. At that hour of the morning in a dingy light, it was old and tired looking. Going through immigration was painless but then there was no direction as to which way to go with baggage signs going both ways. Of course I took the wrong way (as there was no one to follow) and found myself in an area of the terminal with only a few sleeping workers and the other few talking and just looking at me. No baggage in sight. Retracing my steps, I saw a few others coming through immigration, equally as confused as I was. We finally found the baggage area and exited through customs without a problem. Fortunately I was being met. I would not like to have to dealt with prepaid taxi’s and jostling drivers at that hour of the night.

Hooray for Bollywood!

by GenuinelyCurious

Bollywood pumps out hundreds of films every year. The typical ones are of the boy meets girl variety and involve a lot of singing, dancing, longing looks and lovers running towards one another in slow motion. I was lucky enough to be introduced to minor pop star Saalif who, along with his cameraman Munnar, knew Jackie Shoroff, one of the old hands in the game and a great star in his time (the 70s) - see 2nd pic

The Bollywood scene, like Hollywood, is a lot about not what you know but who you know. Prostitutes become starlets and street kids icons. There’s a lot of action and a fair amount of glitz and glam. And who knows, kid? If you can sing and dance, you may make it big in this town.

If not, there’s always that other Mumbai business: high finance. Bombay is the growing money center of India.

Newspapers

by M.E.R.V

If you evert stumble upon them, you should try reading one of the local newspapers - they seem to dwell into people's private lives and name and shame naughty people - a very Asian thing! Like that isn't enough, even the latters address is printed out in the article. LOL!

The Sanjay Gandhi National Park

by sushart

Though this national park is far away from the other "touristy" places in Mumbai, one should take the time out and spend some time in and around the "lungs of the city".

it's a great place to visit in the monsoons, when the place is amazingly green and dense with foliage, and an great variety of fauna. It is a bird watcher's paradise. There are some old caves to explore: the Kanheri Caves -
it is the biggest Buddhist monastic establishment on the Konkan coast. It is situated in the heart of the National Park and is one of the better-known sites in Mumbai.

The Film City is also in the area covered by the national Park. One could spend the day there, rubbing shoulders with the stars! Or maybe just being lucky enough to be part of the movie, in the background!!!

There is a Lion Safari, which is not really worth a try, unless you want to end up feeling sorry for the few straggly, starving lions who look at you through empty eyes.

It's a different view of the city. Who could imagine such a forested area in the middle of the concrete jungle???

Chor Bazaar is basically a...

by tarush

Chor Bazaar is basically a humongous flea market. the name literally means 'market of the thiefs'. It derived it's name during the period of hippie-influx. Petty thiefs would steal belongings from the hippies and sell them here. Thats all changed now.. The vendors now buy their wares from people who need money..mainly the remaining drug-starved hippies.
