    Child friendly rating

    The people of Mumbai are some of the most helpful in the country. Many think it’s crazy to travel to Mumbai with children, however we disagree. No you won’t find any water parks or attractions but Mumbai is a plethora of sights, smells, and experiences. Please note the Indians can be very starry, and a little grabby and everyone will want a picture with you. We rate Mumbai a 8/10
