Where is Mumbai "centre"

Wife and mother have a short 1 night stopover between Goa and Munich.

Does Mumbai have a "centre". If you were to go "downtown" for a short visit where would it be.

Unfortunately they are staying at the Orchid Hotel near the airport and I think that is fixed so transport maybe an issue. Also advice on taxis/price if that is better from the Orchid to "somewhere" with something to see.

I know it is vague.

I'd suggest that they hire a car, because 'downtown' which is South Mumbai is about an hour's drive away and this is where all the major sightseeing is. For what to see/what to do, a read of previous forum posts will be of great help to them.

Hi thanks.

They won't be hiring a car as it is only 1 night. Any idea how much a taxi would cost and an idea of a central destination to tell the driver to go. This is a very quick visit.

Just need a central area where they can easily walk around.

If there was another place/area that you could suggest from the Orchid Hotel (another direction) which may give them someting to do that would also be ok.

I would say Churchgate and colaba are quite good in South mumbai. In north mumbai you can go to linking road and juhu beach

You can hire something like a meru cab by calling. Here is a cool site that gives the taxifare if you give 2 locations. www.taxifarefinder.com/main.php…

South Mumbai - Gateway of India, Nariman Point etc are the points of interest
