Malabar Hill, Mumbai (Bombay)

3.9
#4 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Maharashtra
An elite and exclusive neighborhood of Mumbai, Malabar Hill feels like different city. This untouristed enclave of the high and mighty of the city's financial and social world makes for a dazzling stroll and popular weekend picnic spot. Watch the locals with their children relaxing on the public beach, stop in the magnificent Jain temple, and meander the many gardens and little cafes on the main road. The area requires quite a bit of walking, so bring water. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Mumbai (Bombay) holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Malabar Hill and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Leafy, green reasonably clean this is where most of the rich and powerful in Mumbai live. Close to the sea, and with several parks, this area is a quality area to live if one is able to do so.  more »

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.
