has one of the world’s greatest natural harbors, and a broad, sheltered bay is located between the city and the mainland. Mumbai is another name for the more commonly recognized name of Bombay. It is actually an island located on India’s central-west coast along the Arabian Sea, and a series of bridges connects it to the mainland. This sprawling city of nearly 18 million is the industrial hub of India, and responsible for half of India’s foreign trade. Many are surprised, however, to find the Victorian cityscape more reminiscent of a 19th-century English industrial city than what you’d expect to find on the edge of the Arabian Sea. Mumbai has a bustling streetlife, more bazaars than you could ever explore, and India’s best nightlife. The main part of the city is concentrated at the southern claw-shaped end of the island, and has art galleries, museums, amusement parks and family entertainment centers. Most sporting facilities in Mumbai are restricted to private clubs, but if you enjoy fishing, the Maharashtra State Angling Association offers trips to suburban lakes and picnic spots, and some private clubs do allow temporary membership for visitors. The Royal Bombay Yacht Club has sailing excursions every Saturday, and invites those who wish to sign on as volunteers.
