A loud, colourful and exotic city

Mumbai is a big, exotic city full of people and colour, and home to India's prolific Bollywood film industry. Although the city can be daunting to first time visitors, it is worth facing the challenge to explore its grand colonial architecture, beautiful palaces and discover unique bazaars, tucked away temples and its wonderful food and noisy nightlife.
