A melting pot of culture, lifestyle, professionalism and hope, Mumbai is the most dynamic metropolitan city pepping with the spirit of the local residents as well as with those who go to make the city their own forever.
Mumbai has a lifestyle and living worth boasting about with people of different walks of human survival thriving in the city and making their livings. It has always been since ages that people from outside Mumbai have come down to the city for professional and commercial reasons and have stayed back.
The true essence of the city can be explored while walking down the streets of Old Mumbai, which is the southern part of the city. It is the best way to soak into the city?s reminiscent colonial feeling, explore the heritage side and get transported to the British era which makes for a major part of Mumbai.

What makes Mumbai famous ?

The hospitality of the people of Mumbai, their outlook towards life, their spirits towards work and life balance as a whole makes the city famous and the most lived and loved across the country. The largest slum at Dharavi and the most expensive building Antilia (owned by Mukesh Ambani) ? both can be found in Mumbai. While the slums showcase one side of the city, the posh roads do witness the livings of movie stars and industrialists balancing the other side. However, both the livings somehow converge at a single point when it comes to Mumbai as a whole.

History of Mumbai

The history of Mumbai dates back to the era when the Treaty of Bassein was signed between Sultan Bahadur Shah of Gujarat and the Portuguese who were offered seven islands which were collectively named as Bombain. With several handovers and constructions made to the city, the changes kept on piling to make Mumbai the city as we know it today.
