Top 5 Weekend Getaways From Mumbai

Living in one of India’s largest cities is life changing. Mumbai, a city of millions, where the past, present and future can be seen in one square block is exciting, chaotic and sometimes overwhelming. Being a resident here, you learn not only to survive but thrive in epic traffic jams and seasonal flooding all while living it up in a fascinating cosmopolitan city.

After 10 years in this vibrant city, we had our fair share of weekend getaways from Mumbai.
