Be on the Beach
You can’t visit Mumbai and not have fun on its beaches. Of these, the two most popular are the Juhu Beach and the Chowpatty Beach. The former has metamorphosed from being a narrow sand bar off the coast of Salcette Island in the 19th century to one that has at its edge the most elite suburb of the city. In fact, visitors come here not just for the beach but also to have a look at the imposing bungalows of the film stars. The Chowpatty Beach is the one with larger crowds simply because it is so very accessible. And not only that, it has a row of shops that offer some of the most delicious snacks by way of chaats, bhelpuris, pav bhaji and of course an assortment of kulfis and ice-creams. You can also walk down from here to Marine Drive, called the Queen’s Necklace, and marvel at a skyline that truly defines the soul of Mumbai. Some of the other beaches, located at quite a distance, are those at Madh Island and the ones at Marve and Manori. The one at Gorai is where the Global Vipassana Pagoda is located.
Walk into the Past
Museums in Mumbai have always been a big draw, offering great glimpses into not only the rich past of the city but the country as well. The city has over 15 museums catering to varied subjects such as archaeology, ancient art, natural history, science and technology, contemporary art, flora and fauna, and so on. The biggest of all such museums is undoubtedly the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya. It dates back to 1905 when its foundations were laid by Prince of Wales and is home to a rich collection of artefacts ranging from sculptures, miniature paintings, coins, etc. Another interesting museum is that of the Bombay Natural History Society which showcases a very rare and prestigious collection of faunal biodiversity in India, which includes bird, mammal, reptile, and amphibian specimens – well-preserved and open to researchers too. And there is also the fascinating Nehru Centre which has a permanent exposition, ‘Discovery of India’, which unfolds varied aspects of Indian culture and its journey through times through its 14 galleries.
Take a Bollywood Tour
For anyone who comes to Mumbai, Bollywood is always high on the sightseeing itinerary. But while you may not be allowed to enter the gates of any film studio on your own, there is now a wonderful way of going about it. Take the ‘Bollywood Tour’. It gives you the opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes as you visit the sets of films or television programmes. You may be lucky enough to come close to some of Bollywood’s biggest stars and at the very least you will get an insight into all the creative pain and effort that goes into the making of ‘entertainment’.
