Mumbai (Bombay), the capital of Maharashtra wears several hats or should we say crowns? Mumbai is not just India’s largest city, it is also its commercial capital, industrial powerhouse, busiest port, fashion capital, home to ‘Bollywood’ (India’s Hollywood), world’s biggest textile market – the list goes on and on. Mumbai thrives on contrasts- the city is home to the richest and the poorest of Indians, sleek limousines jostle rusty cycles, red double-decker buses rumble past three-wheeler auto-rickshaws; impressive high rises soar above crowded ugly slums and shanty towns; glitzy shop fronts amid pavement stalls; glamorous film stars and homeless beggars demand attention at traffic lights and amidst all this are people, people, people everywhere, for Mumbai is home to some 13 million Indians.

Mumbai Shopping
The boutiques that have recently sprung up all over the city supply the fashion thirsty populace with both Indian and foreign designer wear. Glossy malls such as Crossroads and In Orbit and Phoenix Mills are the new face of Mumbai shopping. With elaborate food courts and department stores that sell everything from furniture to baby wear, malls such as these are becoming a very popular Mumbai thing to do amongst youngsters. The old ways also persist, however, in this city of contradictions. Bazaars and markets are a way of life here, as in other parts of India. There is Crawford Market and the wholesale cloth bazaar nearby; Zaveri Bazaar or the jewellers market and Chor Bazaar or the Thieves market which sells antique furniture and curios.

Places to see
