Things to do in and around Mumbai for a honeymoon couple.
A honeymoon is the time when two individuals begin their journey of togetherness. It is a time which people say never comes back. Mumbai or Bombay offers plenty of opportunities for togetherness. Though it may not be the typical honeymoon destination, Mumbai is an option that handsomely rewards exploration. Hitch a ferry from Gorai beach and head on over to Essel World, in its famous water park you can have tons of fun and romance your beloved at the same time. Or hold hands tightly and enjoy the roller coaster rides. It’s an experience that will get you closer, literally. Make a wish for a prosperous and happy married life at the Siddhi Vinayak Temple or the Haji Ali Mosque. Share a spicy bhelpuri at Chowpatty. Enjoy the view of the majestic Gateway of India from the top floor of the Apollo Bar at the Taj Mahal Hotel or sip coffee and sample the flavoured hookahs at Mocha. If you want some peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of the city visit Matheran 50 kms east of Mumbai. The views from Matheran are fabulous especially at sunset and you can take a romantic walk hand in hand down the numerous walking tracks. The most enjoyable aspect of Matheran is getting there. The only way is to take a toy train from Neral Junction to the heart of the hill station. The two hour ascent and 90 minute descent is an amazing experience especially as the train passes through the “1 kiss tunnel”. Another great day trip is to the Elephanta Islands 10 km northeast of the Gateway of India. Elephanta is easily reached by boats, which run every hour till early afternoon, daily from Apollo Bunder. The beautiful rock cut temples dedicated to Lord Shiva are best visited on a weekday instead of the weekend. All in all a honeymoon in Mumbai will provide you a lifetime of happy memories.
