My Trip To Mumbai: The City That Never Sleeps

The City That Never Sleeps is another nickname for Mumbai. Before visiting there, I never believed in the theory.

Mumbai is the most populous city in India and is also famous as the heart of the Bollywood film industry. It is known as the entertainment and financial capital of India. Mumbai is also called as the city of dreams because a lot of dreamers visit the city every year to get their hopes fulfilled and to make their career in the Entertainment Industry. Mumbai has the famous iconic Gateway of India stone arch, built by the British Raj in 1924. When people think of the most iconic city in India, Mumbai City is what comes to mind.

How To Get There

The city is well-connected to rest of India by air, road, and rail. If you are traveling to Mumbai from the north India, you should go by flight to save time. Get the best fare rates at

From fast lifestyle to high-end facilities, this city that never sleeps has everything to boast of. In today’s blog post, I am going to show you my journey to Mumbai. I could hardly roam in one part of the city in my short trip, so yes I would love to visit their again to explore the rest of the city. Do have a look-

An aerial view of the Lonavala hill station, which is around 96 kilometers from the city of Mumbai.  Lonavala is the place to be during monsoons. So, I missed the chance to witness the flowing Bhushi Dam.

Khandala serves impressive scenery of the surrounding and is a favorite spot of nature lovers. Also, the place is famous for its song “ae, aati kya Khandala”. Apart from nature, you’ll witness a lot of lovers in the corners.

Taking a picture from the ferry in front of the iconic Taj and Gateway Of India. It was my first encounter with the Arabian ocean and I loved it. Though I couldn’t take the ride to Elephanta Caves, I would love to visit there in future.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus formerly known as Victoria Terminus (VT Station) is a historic railway station and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Gateway of India is an arch monument, erected to commemorate the landing of King George V and Queen Mary at Apollo Bunder on their visit to India in 1911.

The inside view of the iconic sea-facing landmark in Colaba, South Mumbai, The Taj Mahal Palace. Do not forget to visit here.

One of the most recognizable landmarks and popular religious places of Mumbai, Haji Ali Dargah. The dargah contains the tomb of Sayed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari and is famous for standing still even during high tides and floods.

The famous Siddhivinayak temple of Lord Shri Ganesh. It is one of the richest temples in the country and celebrities often visit here.

Amitabh Bachchan’s bungalow- Jalsa. The iconic ‘Jalsa’ was gifted to him by director Ramesh Sippy as a reward for acting in his movie, ‘Satte Pe Satta’.

India’s most eligible bachelor, Salman Khan’s House at ‘Galaxy Apartments’, Bandstand, Bandra. On the same road, lives Shahrukh Khan and Rekha.

Palatial abode ‘Mannat’ of the Bollywood’s king, Shahrukh Khan. His home is near the seashore with a breathtaking view.

Word’s Most expensive house, ‘Antilia’ is the Private residence of Mukesh Ambani and family. Antilia is both the most expensive and the most spacious house in the world.

From 24-hour dining to late night walks, this city dismisses the notion that nights are meant for sleeping. A picture on the beach.

I wonder with so many noises and lights, people could hardly sleep! A picture of mine with the double-decker bus. Though I couldn’t take a ride.

The slums of Dharavi- the second-largest slum in the continent of Asia and the third-largest slum in the world.

Linking Road Market, Bandra is a haven for the fashionistas. I bought a hell lot of pieces in barely half an hour.

My late night cravings took me 30km’s away to have this Diamond Coffee. Later, I came to know they had branches at other places too.

Papad Churi- Bits of crunchy crushed papad with tempered spices. One of the famous dishes of the city.

A church on the roadside made me stop and pray with all my heart. Christmas is all around.

  2. hey Falak. what did you buy during your half an hour of pleasure shopping til you almost dropped? I hope you will be showing us samples of all these stunning outfits or whatever it was you added to your collection. I found your post to be very insightful and informative. I love how you showed the religious diversity of Mumbai. I was also excited cos I have a friend who lives in lonavala. of course I didn’t remember that information before your visit :O sorry you had to waste your time chasing the perfect cup of coffee. they should definitely sponsor you after your efforts. thanks for stopping by a church for prayers. you are talented at shedding light on historically significant locations. perhaps your trip will prove fruitful inspiration for your romantic fiction. you do always manage to hold us spellbound in whatever literary avenue you pursue. I would challenge you to show the tension between glamour and poverty and explore it in greater depth. you are adept at bringing out the most luscious looking and festive aspects of your jewel of a country. I hope despite the nickname of the city you did force yourself eventually to slumber 😉 we cant have you running out of energy now can we 🙂 even if you would still look incredibly glamorous with panda eyes. I really want to know if you had any accidental meetings with movie stars but I’m sure you would have mentioned it if you did. I love the fact that your double deckers are yellow and the uks are red. I wonder if this is like our taxis in Australia which were prevented from being yellow and were forced to be orange despite calling themselves yellow cabs cos new York owns the copyright on cabs being colored yellow. hard to pick a most spectacular outfit for this one but the American flag top and the clothes you chose for your scene at the beach were full of razzle dazzle in your usual understated yet done to perfection making being a beauty queen look effortless way <3

    1. Hey Wiseman! India is a country full of diversity and we love our unity in diversity. I am glad I could show a part of our strength and pride to all people out there. I knew you will love my visit to the church pic the most. I was correct. Thank you for saying all these uncounted lovely words. I am grateful to have met you through wordpress. I hope you’ll visit India soon.

  3. Marvellous pictures in the most amazing city. From Haji Ali Dargah, Siddhivinayak to CST and Jalsa, Mannat and Galaxy. Aishwarya’s house is also there, La Mer and I am sure you had a chance to hop at Churchgate where I used to stay. Mumbai can never ever change! The feeling is so amazingly good.
