Top 3 Things to do in Mumbai

By Chris Boyle

Mumbai is the most populated city in India and the country’s film and entertainment capital


These ancient Hindu and Buddhist shrines situated on the island of Elephanta are one of the must-see attractions for Elite Travelers to Mumbai.

Gracing the interiors of the caves are large sculpted depictions of the Hindu God Shiva, hewn from the sheer basalt walls during the 5th and 8th centuries. To visit these mesmerizing and haunting wonders, hire a yacht from the steps of the Gateway to India and enjoy an incredible experience indicative of India’s spiritual soul.


No trip to Mumbai is complete without a pilgrimage to Bollywood, the Indian film industry’s spiritual home.

In India, cricket is king.

A remnant of the Raj, the game has been played here for over a century, with the country’s favorite sporting sons assuming the status of demi-gods and enjoying the kind of fanatical support more often reserved for Hollywood A-listers. The recent emergence of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has turned the game on its head, from a staid leisurely pursuit into a high octane extravaganza. Captained by homegrown legend Sachin Tendulker, the Mumbai Indians are one of the most exciting teams in the League, featuring some of the best players from India and around the world. Enjoy the corporate hospitality on offer, and watch this sporting event in style.
