“gateway of happiness”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

If you want to spend real time with friends, family or your girl friend, this place is best one. You will get food, drink and other food items here. Take a boat and go for a ride. Hotel taj is there just few meters so no tension for accommodation if you are having a good budget. Transport facility is also available. Vast sea with lot of boats there adds to the beauty.

“Visit the India Gate”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Huge crowd gathers near the monument on the evening. People dancing, hugging and greeting each other, taking photograph with Taj palace, India Gate in his hand. Ships anchored at this harbour. It's nice area and I enjoyed it.

“Nice piece of work!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Its grandeur and place in Indian history makes it relevent even in present time. Its location in front of Taj hotel on sea beach is really very soothing in the evening.

“A Mumbai Must See”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

It may not be the Taj Mahal (the palace, not the hotel near the Gateway of India), but this arch is to Mumbai what the former is to Delhi. It is an impressive structure that seems to constantly have a large crowd of people around it. For a small fee, you can have your picture taken in several poses with different buildings in the background. Just make sure you negotiate the price.
Hawkers are everywhere, and if you deal with them you must make sure you get what you think you are getting. A balloon seller was walking around with a huge inflated balloon under his arm. He held a package of five un-inflated balloons in his hand. My wife asked how much and he responded $10. She talked him down to $3 and the deal was consummated. Upon opening the package and blowing up a balloon we found out they were about one-fifth the size of the inflated balloon he was holding.
In Mumbai, it truly is "buyer beware."

“Symbol of the end of an era”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This is one of Mumbai's most famous landmarks where the Brits departed symbolically at the end of the Raj. Duck across the road to the hotel for a high tea or stronger.
