Marine Drive, Mumbai (Bombay)

#1 of 1,127 in Outdoors in India
Scenic Drive Landmark
The city's most famous waterfront boulevard, Marine Drive follows the shoreline of Back Bay and connects the bustling business district with the rest of town. Drive or stroll down the 3.5 km (2.2 mi) road, built in 1920 on reclaimed land, to get a glimpse of the numerous Art Deco-style buildings lining the way. Some of the most expensive real estate in the country lies along this road, evidenced by the high-rises and fancy homes that crowd the shore. You'll find the promenade one of the city's most popular places to meet, socialize, and eat, with the famous Chowpatty Beach at the north end a particularly well known spot for tasty street food. Use our Mumbai (Bombay) family vacation planner to add Marine Drive and other attractions to your Mumbai (Bombay) vacation plans.

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.
