    Here are 10 things you must see in Mumbai (Bombay)!

    1 - The Gateway - this is the most popular tourist attraction and can be best viewed from the tourist boat trips.
    2 - Chowpatty Beach - sandy beach that has been filmed in many Bollywood movies. It comes alive at night!
    3 -  Flora Fountain - in the heart of the city this can be found.
    4 - The Theives Market (Chor Bazaar) - great place to find the gifts to remember your stay,
    5 - Marine Drive - 2 miles of busy road that is flanked by the sea and buildings lots of car chases filmed on this stretch of road.
    6 - Kamala Nehru Park - There is a famous shoe house here and there is a great view of the city from this hill top location.
    7 - Kanheri Caves - In the heart of the national park and cut into the hills it is an amazing place to visit. You can spend a good few hours there exploring.
    8 - Victoria Terminus - This was where the first steam train left to commemorate Queen Victoria's Jubilee Day in 1887. Very impressive building.
    9 - The Victoria Gardens - (Jijamata Udyan) Botanical gardens spread over a large area.  A great place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle.
    10 - Mahatma Gandhi Road - Fashion Street is its nickname and there are loads of designer clothes at a fraction of the prices we get them at. Haggle your way to a great deal.

    There are many more places you can visit but these seem to be the most popular.

    Hello, as the list is already long I will only add things that haven't been mentioned yet:

    1. Crawford Market Bazaar - a place where you can literally find ANYTHING under the sun for the cheapest price! But it will be a looong day;)

    2. Carter Road and Bandstand in Bandra are both nice promenades to stroll in the evenings

    3. Matunga - is the little south india in Mumbai - the food is simply superb and at every corner you will se a beautiful and colourful temple!

    4. Madh Island - Some areas are pretty and the ferry ride is an adventure in itself

    5. NCPA - theatre and concerts, there is always a lot of program, check the website

    6. Prithvi theatre in Juhu also has a good programme

    7. Versova Fisher village - feel like time travelling

    8. KotachiWadi close to Charni Road - an old portugese quarter that now is luckily partly under heritage protection - well worth a walk

    9. Kala Ghoda area, beautiful area to explore, if you come on time (usually in feb) don't miss the Kala Ghoda Arts festival!
