Accommodation & Apartments in Mumbai
The cosmopolitan metropolis of Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the capital of the region of Maharashtra and the commercial capital of India. It is also the popular culture center of the booming Bollywood film industry. Many of the tourist sights are located in south Mumbai but there are cultural sights to see around the city. There are plenty of examples of intricate colonial architecture and you should take a look around the British colonial city within the walls of Fort St. George which has some great examples of Neo-classical, Gothic revival, and Indo-Saracenic architectual style. The Gateway of India is one of the major tourist attractions and is iconic of the city. It was built to commemorate the visit of the British Monarch, King George V, in 1911. Mumbai has several different areas for sightseeing, restaurants and nightlife. For such a sprawling city, Mumbai surprisingly also has a national park located within the city limits. It's definitely worth a visit just to see the hand-carved ancient Buddhist caves. Discover more caves which are dedicated to the Hindu Lord Shiva on a trip to Elephanta Island 6 miles east of the city. Accommodation in Mumbai is varied and usually of a high quality. On Wimdu you can rent a single room or a whole apartment in Mumbai. To make your stay more comfortable you can even rent a villa in Mumbai. There are many advantages of renting an apartment rather than a hotel as you really have more independence. You can come and go when you please and enjoy the real living space. In an apartment you get complete privacy and can feel at home whilst visiting any foreign country. Wimdu apartments, guesthouses, villas and vacation rentals can be found all throughout Asia so why not add other major Asian cities to your list of places to visit and choose alternative accommodation in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bangkok and Seoul.
