Dhobi Ghat, Mumbai (Bombay)

See hundreds of people hard at work at Dhobi Ghat, a traditional open-air launderette. Take a tour of the large site to see the dhobis washing and drying clothes and materials in separate baths and colorful drying areas. Each individual wash pen features a flogging stone on which the dhobis beat the clothes to dry them, with water flying through the air in an entertaining scene. A guided tour introduces you to the history of the site, and the lives of the workers and their families.

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.
