Considering that the city of Mumbai has the 2nd largest population in the world, I was surprised by how relatively organised, clean and pedestrian friendly it was compared with the rest of India.

This is the famous Taj Mahal Hotel, which was involved in the terrorist attacks of September 2008. At the time I was there, the British Government were saying that there was a very high risk of terrorism and advising tourists to stay indoors. For that reason I spent most of my time in Mumbai at the cinema and McDonalds, so I have very few photos to show for it.

There are also a number of grand buildings left behind after the British occupation. One particularly impressive building is the Victoria railway station which is the busiest station in the whole of Asia moving more than 1 million people a day!
