    If you, like me, are a little tired of seeing as emblematic buildings becomes cold museums, don't miss Chhatrapati Terminus (Mumbai train station). The spectacular building hides a no less spectacular urban life since it is a core part of city passenger transport. Hundreds of people through their platforms. You can take pictures in and out since the omnipresent police will not bring you any hits. Outside stalls sell and buy everything, even some repaired phones on the street. In my opinion is an example of how a monumental place can be full of life, provide a real service to citizens and not to become a museum/graveyard only attended by tourists.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
