Discover boutique hotels in Mumbai, India
When to go
The best time to visit is between November and March, when the weather is mild and pleasant. We’d avoid June to September, muggy monsoon months with soaring temperatures and havoc-wreaking floods. Prices will be higher during festivals and holidays (like Diwali, Eid and Ganesh Chaturthi), so double-check dates before you go.
PlanesFly into Chhatrapati Shivaji International airport. If you’re flying out, leave plenty of time to get to the airport – Mumbai’s mad traffic means it can take over an hour by taxi to get there.
AutomobilesJust shout ‘auto!’ to hail one of the ever-present black and yellow taxis or rickshaws.
