Global Vipassana Pagoda, Mumbai (Bombay)

Take some time out of your busy travel itinerary to slow down and reflect at Global Vipassana Pagoda, a meditation hall topped with an impressive spire covered in real gold. Even if you do not meditate, the grand architecture of this attraction alone warrants a visit. Look for a large crystal on the pinnacle, which covers the world's largest stone dome built without supporting pillars. When you go, also look for a pagoda dome containing Buddha relics, library and study rooms, and a museum dedicated to the life of the Buddha. The complex also offers meditation courses. Check the attraction's website beforehand, as visitors are only allowed to enter during strict periods.

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.
