Mumbai: Why go

India’s ‘Maximum City’, Mumbai is where every Indian dreams of making it big.  Thousands arrive at its doorstep each day in search of an exciting new life. Bold, bright and big, Mumbai, with its 14 million inhabitants, is India's largest city, and also it’s most diverse, cosmopolitan and westernised. Its glitz and glamour is only exaggerated by the fact that it is home to Bollywood, India’s larger-than-life Hindi film industry - one of the world's largest film production centres. Day or night the city buzzes with activity, whether at its crowded marketplaces, beach fairgrounds or sophisticated nightclubs. Hot and chaotic it may be but Mumbai exudes a magic and charm few can ignore.
