People across the world look to cities for shelter and a backdrop to their everyday routines. In Mumbai, you get more. India's largest city is a financial powerhouse, but you'll find far more than just industry within this buzzing metropolis.
The city's pace is fast, and some areas embody the crowded streetscapes that many people associate with India. But the serene Sanjay Gandhi National Park, a short drive from the hustle and bustle of the inner city, is a world away from such stereotypes and shows Mumbai's true diversity.
Walk through its streets and discover Gothic, Victorian and Islamic architecture among modern-day buildings. Spend a morning losing yourself to one of the many outdoor bazaars, or park up by the Indian Ocean to see where Mumbai meets the world. Whatever you do here, Mumbai is set to impress from the get-go.
