Only one word accurately describes India's commercial capital Mumbai: big.
Bring the kids along to KidZania Mumbai and Kanheri Caves. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nerul Balaji Temple and Spas. Explore Mumbai's surroundings by going to Kharghar Hills (in Navi Mumbai) and Thane (Upvan Lake & Sai Baba Temple). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Gateway of India, don't miss a visit to Hutatma Chowk, find something for the whole family at Red Carpet Wax Museum, and take a memorable drive along Marine Drive.

For where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Mumbai trip planner.
