Arriving in Mumbai
The sheer size and non-stop energy of Mumbai, India’s largest city, can come as an initial shock to visitors, but as you adjust to the frenetic pace of life in this extraordinary location you begin to appreciate its charms. Formerly known as Bombay, Mumbai is the powerhouse of India, and is full of interest for explorers.
There is so much to see and do in Mumbai that you may have to come back again and again to experience everything the city has to offer. Flights to Mumbai with Qatar Airways are a great way to begin your Indian odyssey in one of the world’s most vibrant destinations.
The majority of tourist attractions in Mumbai are focused in South Mumbai. Here you’ll find the magnificent colonial construction of Fort St. George, quite literally a city within a city.
Clustered around the wide boulevards of this section of the city you will also find the iconic Gateway of India, the gloriously over-the-top Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) building, the Municipal Corporation and Police Headquarters and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Vastu Sanghralaya (the Prince Of Wales museum).
If you prefer to stroll around museums and galleries then Mumbai won’t disappoint. Head for the National Gallery of Modern Art, or discover India’s up and coming artists at the Nehru Centre Art Gallery at Worli.
Within the same complex as the art gallery is the Nehru Science Centre, which showcases India’s rapid scientific and technological advancements.
If you need a respite from the relentless energy and pace of Mumbai then head to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park or the "Hanging Gardens" on Malabar Hill.
Flights to Mumbai with Qatar Airways land at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Mumbai please check the visa and passport requirements.
