When we planned our Mumbai trip it was initially a two days trip but because of a technical issue on our fight made everything not what we expected. We had only 24 hours to explore. Mumbai is huge and 24 hours is too short to explore thanks to my cousin and his wife who helped us get a good glimpse of the city even for such a short time. Look forward to visiting Mumbai and know more with more time.

The Bustling city offers the most breathtaking vistas to monuments to, eminent architecture and varied and exotic food to world-class shopping. No wonder why Mumbai is India's one dream destination.
