Bombay Dreams
Formally known as Bombay, exhilarating & charismatic Mumbai is the most populated city in the world, India’s financial powerhouse, the home of Bollywood & the setting of the hit film ‘Slum Dog Millionaire’.
Day 1: City of Dreams
Gateway of IndiaArrive Mumbai. You will be met & transferred to your hotel for nights. Remainder of the day at leisure.
Mumbai - or Bombay, as it was formerly known - remains India’s city of dreams. Despite extreme poverty and eye-watering pollution, it is so dynamic that paupers still flock there in the hope of becoming successful entrepreneurs. Built largely by the British around of the best-protected natural harbours in the world, Mumbai is India’s strategic economic centre. The city is is also home to the country’s prolific Bollywood film industry, which cranks out more feature flms than any place in the world and naturally the setting for the hit flm ‘Slum Dog Millionaire’.
The main draw of Mumbai, like much of India, remains its contradictions. Within minutes (or a few miles) you can be awestruck by the palatial houses on Malabar Hill and then depressed by the makeshift shacks and the bedraggled babies in the city’s poverty-stricken neighbourhoods. Overnight – Mumbai

This afternoon city tour leads us to the Gateway of India - a former colonial monument and now a popular emblem of the city as well as a hubbub of life.
