Mission Mumbai 50 – 50 Places to Visit in Mumbai

“It’s never too late to revisit a DREAM, realize previously abandoned GOAL, or take a leap of faith toward something you have LONG DESIRED. You have got a lot of life to left to live. So go out and start making it AMAZING” – Stephanie Cooper

It’s true; I always dream of travelling and exploring new places, trying different types of food, experiencing things that I have never done before. But the true story is different; actually I have not done anything yet to pursue my passion.

At age 25, after completing 4 years of my corporate job finally I realized and accepted something big is missing in my life. I have a good job which pays me well, comfortable routine, supporting family and friends but at the back of my mind I know, this is not how I always wanted to live or spend my life.

I have been living in Mumbai for 4 years. Mumbai is the one of the most attracted tourist places of India. Tourists around the world spend their money and come to India, especially to visit Mumbai “City of Dreams”.

There are more than 100 places to see in Mumbai. Surprisingly, On counting how many places that I have visited then it’s hardly 5 or 6 places.

I have to start from somewhere, so I have decided to start with our own place, Mumbai. This is something I am doing to come out of my comfort zone and for the wisely utilization of my weekends.

I have listed down the top 50 places mostly visited by tourists. I have decided to visit, explore and write a post about each of these places.

It is my Mission Mumbai 50 and a small start. I will keep posting about my progress on my blog.

    Hello friends
    Mumbai is always an intresting place. Its is city for dreamer who comes to Mumbai with dreams in eye and ambition to do something. This is only place where one came become very wealthy or one can go its down stage akso which depend upon his luck and hardwork. I comleted graduation and post graduation from Mumbai. And sprit of Mumbai ignites a new flame in my life. Mumbaikars life style, culture, sprit has taught a modern and updated life for me who came from the small place of Maharashtra. Come to Mumbai for education but it gave degree in most of other field also. So every time in a year i to come Mumbai. There are so may things to say but its not possible. Hence I salute the Amchi Mumbai.
    I am proud to be Maharashtrian and even proud that Mumbai is part of it.
    I 💖 मुबंई
    जय महाराष्ट्र

      Mount Mary fair was a most awaited for us. In a week we used to go 2 or 3 times as its was just a 5 minutes walking distance from collage. Satuarday and Sunday we suerly made it to visit. Then if went with classmate girl then they surely had Pav Baji at Sai Sagar hotel. And when we all boys went then after Mount Mary we definately goes to Bandstand and Bandra fort and Hill Road which was daily time pass for us. Bandra west is memorable place. Just seating at Bandrafort and in Rocks on sea at bandstand and looking at horizon for long time just thinking what we ne t destination.
      One Myth was said by some of localite bandra friends that if girl go with her boyfriend then they will get marry. So we also notice that more vistitors of young age come together to this fair.
      Truth I dont know.
