Mumbai City Guide
Mumbai - Mumbai is one of India's most popular cities, better known for its corporate image and bollywood. The city continues to evolve dramatically and yet magically retains the glamour, momentum and ambition of the average Mumbaikar. Perhaps it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities of India. Mumbai continues to develop in spite of all adversities and its growth is fuelled by a spirit of entrepreneurship that envelopes the city be it the dabbawala, stock broker, diamond merchant, Bollywood producer or even the local paanwalla. Traffic jams and overcrowded trains are part and parcel of the Mumbai experience. As result distance here is measured in time.
The choice of accommodation on the island city is governed by where a bulk of the meetings of the business traveler is scheduled. Bear in mind that the commute time from one place to another is not constant but depends on the time of day.
