A Vibrant City For Work, Study, Life and Play
Mumbai, previously known as Bombay is located on India's central-western coast along the Arabian Sea and is the capital city of the state of Maharashtra. It has also been nicknamed as the commercial of capital of India and is also an important seaport. It is home to the Hindi film industry popularly referred to as "Bollywood".
The principal part of the city is concentrated at the southern claw-shaped end of the island. The southernmost peninsula is known as Colaba and this is where most travellers gravitate, since it has a decent range of hotels and restaurants and two of the city's best landmarks, the Gateway of India and the Taj Mahal Hotel. Directly north of Colaba is the area known as the Fort, since this is where the old British fort once stood. Further west is Marine Drive, which sweeps around Back Bay, connecting the high-rise modern business centre with Girgaon Chowpatty Beach. To the north are the suburbs of Greater Mumbai. Here you will find the two airports, the international airport at Sahar and the domestic airport at Santacruz. Like a giant magnet, Mumbai draws people from all walks of life - traders and artisans, musicians and movie stars, peasants and industrialists, entrepreneurs and executives, students and dropouts. Mumbai is like little bits of India all rolled into one sprawling city. Mumbai also has excellent restaurants and shopping areas.
