I remember at one point back home, in the early stages of planning this trip, I had wanted to avoid Mumbai altogether, thinking it would be too much hassle trying to navigate one of the world's largest cities, with a population of twenty two million plus. I was so wrong, and I am so glad we came here.
Without a doubt, we lucked out with …
Back in Mumbai for a couple of days, before heading north by train to Udaipur.
This afternoon I visited Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai, an architect I met in London and who is building a small structure for an architecture exhibition at the V&A next June http://studiomumbai.com/
The studio is an oasis of sophistication, a quiet …
I arrived in Mumbai on Thursday evening and its a big city like most other. A few things of note; It is a city of MEN - hardly any women to be seen anywhere. Not a surprise in itself, its just a strange feeling, I didn't notice at first and was simply thinking something was missing. It took a while before I realised it was the women that were …
...WE LOVE IT! So yesterday was my last day in Mumbai, and while I didn't do a great amount I really like Mumbai. I went to a beautiful shop called the Bombay Paperie where all of the paper is hand made from cotton I think, then hand printed with gold stamps. They have stacks and stacks of paper all over the shop and beautiful cards and notebooks …
... make it hard to do anything. Probably the most famous monument in Mumbai, the Gateway of India is also where people embark on boat trips to Elephanta island. This UNESCO world heritage site is actually a group of sculpted caves dating back to the 7th century A.D. The 1hr boat trip allows us to cool down and relax a little.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSea Palace Hotel Mumbai (Bombay)
Selecting a hotel in Mumbai was a challenge in itself, because we had to readjust the mindset and prepare to spend about three times more than our usual expenditure, because Mumbai - like any other world class international city - is expensive. Accommodations could have been found for less, but we were not willing to sacrifice the comfort and security of a good budget hotel, and we wanted, above all, a hotel located in Calaba, walking distance to The Gates of India and all of the tourist attractions.
The Sea Palace Hotel was the perfect choice, with rooms to accommodate a range of budgets, very friendly and accommodating management and staff, and an excellent location right on the waterfront, only metres away from the iconic Taj Mahal Hotel and The Gates of India. In addition to the prime location, the hotel's rooftop terrace restaurant was a huge bonus, with excellent food, great music, and a stellar view overlooking the bay.
For all that it offers, this hotel has got to be the best deal in town. Think about it: a budget hotel with prime location waterfront in Mumbai. We would definitely stay at The Sea Palace in future. Highly recommended.
