I really enjoyed reading your hub!

I have also same opinion that Mumbai is one of most attractive city of India.

And also known as “City of Dreams”.

‘Arial view of Mumbai’ and ‘A view of Mumbai -Pune highway’ are such a great pictures of this city.

We (Mike and me) will explore Mumbai with the help of http://www.southalltravel.co.uk in the month of April. I think it is well connected to Delhi.

Excellent topic. Photos are amazing and captivating. But you could have added some more text. Anyhow as the famous saying, I must say that, a picture is worth thousand words. I have plan to visit the city next May and I will take note of this article. Keep on writing. All the best.
