The Gateway of India
Mumbai, Bollywood city and home of the nouveau riche, offers something for everyone - a city of immense contrast, colour and life. Kipling described Bombay as the "Mother of all Cities". The iconic Gateway of India at the tip of Narim point is a must see, built as a welcome for King George V for his visit in 1911, it also signified the end of British rule, with the last British soldiers passing through the arch before boarding a ship to leave India in 1948. At night stroll north from the gate along Marine Drive, often referred to as the Queen's Necklace, after the row of lights that illuminates its 3km curve.
