Mumbai known as Bombay is the capital of Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the most popular city in India because of various reasons. Like it is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India. It gives 70% of the capital transaction to India’s economy.
Mumbai is surrounded by the Arabian sea to the west. Talking about climate, Mumbai has a tropical wet and dry climate. The hotter season is from February to May, which is followed by the monsoon from June to September. And from October to January there’s a winter season.

If we talk about public transport, Mumbai is quite a good in providing transport service. This transport includes suburban railways, metro, monorail, Black and yellow meter taxis, auto rickshaws, Brihanmumbai Electric supply and transport buses.
If you are new in Mumbai, make sure you know all the taxi and auto rikshaws fairs. I don’t feel good to say this because Mumbai is my hometown but it is my duty to make sure you know all these things. Some time these black and white Taxi and Auto Rikshaws driver charges fairer than the actual one. This is the reason I said you should know all the fairs. If you are traveling from trains or metro, always watch your luggage and expensive things like mobile phones, wallet or any gold chains. I have personally seen many robbery cases during train travel. So be alert always.
Talking about architecture, most of the constructions are build during the British period. Best examples are Victoria terminus and Bombay University which is built in gothic revival style. Most of the buildings are built using some contemporary styles.
The architectural features include a variety of European influence and traditional Indian features.
Mumbai’s culture is full of traditional festivals, food, music, and theaters. You will find a very good verity of food and entertainment and nightlife. Khau Galli is one of my favorite places to enjoy tasty food. You will find every International food item but in our desi Indian Style. The best thing about Mumbai is its Night Life. It’s as awesome as any other popular city nightlife in the World. There is one line people says about Mumbai is.. “Mumbai never sleeps”. And this is as true as The Mumbai.
