Information & Tips for Mumbai

Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the most populous city in India. Its city center is located on a peninsula. The city is famous for its breathtaking, pompous colonial buildings like the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station or the Bombay High Court. The heart of India’s financial industry is located in Mumbai as well, resulting in numerous skyscrapers and contemporary buildings in its Southern districts.

The Best Time to Visit

Mumbai is hot and humid all year round, so there isn’t really a “best time to visit”. But there definitely are times when you shouldn’t visit the city – like in its monsoon season. That lasts from June to the end of September and sees daily, heavy rain showers pour on the city.

From The Airport to the City

Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Int’l Airport serves as a secondary hub for Air India and attracts many international airlines from all over the globe. It is located roughly 30 kilometres north of the city centre. Before 2021, there will be no metro connection to the airport. Instead, you can take air-conditioned buses provided by private companies. A taxi ride downtown can take up to 90 Minutes due to heavy traffic, but its rather affordable and should not exceed 400 rupees (approx. €5).

Information & Tips for India

India is billed as a “subcontinent” not only for geographical reasons. The argument can be made that there is no region on the entire planet as culturally different as India. For example, it is home to as many vegetarians as the rest of the world. But its unique cuisine is just one of reasons to go there – India has a lot to offer. You can finde paradise like beaches in Goa and Kerala. Buzzing metropoles like Delhi and Mumbai invite you as well as and extravagant buildings and palaces like the world famous Taj Mahal. In conclusion, a country as huge as India is full of possibilities.

Visa & Entry

EU citizens need a visa and a passport to enter India. The easiest way is to apply for an eVisa, that will grant you two entries and a stay up to 60 days. It costs around 30€ on the government’s official site. With it, you can enter the country at almost any international airport.

Transport infrastructure

Flag carrier Air India and a bunch of smaller LCCs connect the airports of Delhi and Mumbai to almost any noteworthy city in the country. For a country its size, India has an excellent railway network. This allows for extremely cheap ground transportation. Renting a car is possible, but incredibly dangerous due to poor road conditions and reckless driving habits.

Currency

Official currency is the Indian rupee. 100 rupees are worth around 1,30€.
