Last BMI Hoorah: Exploring Mumbai


We just had a day in Mumbai which ended up just being the right amount of time to spend in Mumbai to "enjoy" the sights and chaos. We did look around for tours, guides and cars online before the trip but ended up just getting a car directly with the hotel since we wanted the the flexibility although it was slightly pricier at ~$80 USD for an Innova for ~3.5 hours. We did get some hotel points out of it though!

The hotel had provided print outs of the main tourist attraction with the driver adding in some commentary and suggestions on the route and what to see.

Dhoby Ghaut

Victoria Station

Gateway of India

Taj Hotel

Hanging Gardens

Overall, we didn't enjoy Mumbai all that much. It was WAY too chaotic for us. However, one attraction we did thoroughly enjoy was Mani Bhayan - a house Gandhi used to stay in. It housed a library and an exhibition explaining the life of Gandhi.
