    This is such an underrated place...
    I went in Feb so it was dry and not lush but beautiful nonetheless. I've been to Buddhist caves in many countries in Asia but this was one of the most impressive by the shear size of some.
    I was lucky to have a security guard take me around skipping to the best caves, providing simple indights into Buddhist life 2000 years ago and the use of rooms and shortcutting to the top. Worth the obligatory handout at the end. He demonstrated the auditory delight that is mediative chanting from cave to cave- if you're by yourself you HAVE to do.
    It's only from the top with the perspective of dustance that you can truly appreciate the overwhelming size that is Mumbai- wow!

    I hired a bike for the 5km in-it was hot but could ride almost the whole way (last 200m was fairly steep without gears- hint double check the chain is tight before leaving- mine kept falling off. Not a massive hassle but if you're not used to bike repairs it could be a long walk).

    About an hour from Mumbai- I took an uber rental but there was plenty of transport up there so you can easily just get a tuk tuk and find one back or a taxi.

    Final hint- stretch out- you're in for some steps..

    Essel World is one of the oldest Amusement parks in India, I have know. Along with Appu Ghar and Fantasy Land, but this one survived.

    I have visited Essel World more than 10 times, and it never gets old. The rides are average but yes, they have added a few more rides as the competition has increased.

    This is good chillout amusement park, not so thrilling but mid-thrill rides and nicely maintained place.

    Location : Mumbai
    Ticket : 900 Rs.
    How to reach : BY car, bus or Ferry.

    I have been to Water Kingdom many times from school and as a kid and its so much fun even now. Almost 20 years later, back to the same place, with kids and their parents – the place is the same. The whole experience was a lot of fun and we enjoyed all the rides and the wave pool particularly. There are adult, kid and family rides, so go with a group to enjoy everything.
    From the entrance, to the left is Amazonia – with adult rides followed by Wetlantic in the centre for everyone. To the right of this is The Lagoon for kids and Mississippi Hill (adult rides) with a small gliding slide for kids. At the back of the Wetlantic is the lazy river along with Goofers Lagoon for kids.
    There are lots of dining options with some good and not so good food options. We had lunch at Food Wharf where the Thali and dosas were good. The pav bhaji and Bhature of Chole Bhature was okay. Stay hydrated and there are lots of water coolers to fill water from and washrooms at various junctures within the place. Also, do try the fish pedicure. It was my 1st experience and was really nice at the end of the day.

    Things to avoid:
    1. The rain dance place is really bad, with no lighting and smell with very less water
    2. Some slides need maintenance and are a bit worn out
    3. Avoid vacations and Sundays, very crowded and the water gets dirty very easily
    4. Also, with crowds waiting time is 30mins for each ride, so you spend a lot of time waiting

    Tips:
    1. Go early by the time the park opens to get the best of the rides. Takes 1-1.5 hours to reach there via Ferry+tickets+Changing, so plan accordingly
    2. Board ferry from Marve or Gorai. Its Rs. 70-100 pp
    3. The passport option (2 trips to Water Kingdom + 1 to Bird Park) @ 1,500/- per annum is better that 1 trip @ 1,250 for Adults and 875 for kids
    4. Book directly there, its seamless and better
    5. Outside food is not allowed, even biscuits. Carry your steel bottle for water if required
    6. Try to do the rides at the onset so that after lunch you can laze in Wetlantic or lazy river
    7. Carry sunscreen, coconut oil, towels, change of clothes
    8. Wear Nylon or polyester clothes
    9. You can buy clothes, floats and other accessories at shops there
    10. Before entering the rides oil yourself up with coconut oil as the chlorine water can darken your skin after being in it for whole day
    11. The lockers are big enough for one 4-member family’s clothes @ 200per locker
    12. Carry waterproof ziplock for phones, credit card and money
    13. Do the fish pedicure at the end of the day (@100 pp for 15 mins)
    14. With children, have a couple of adults take care of them at the slides and Wetlantic and others can go and enjoy the adult ride. Hence, go with a group for sure
    Happy travels!!

    If you want to spend a great day out with your friends, family, or kids, Bounce is the place to go. The facility is large, with an indoor café and clean restrooms. There are numerous activities to participate in, and multiple professionals to help you through each one. Bounce offers a variety of packages to pick from. A Must-try experience

    Great fun for kids of all ages. My 6 year old loved it - trampolining was good fun! No waiting to go on things when we went too! Quick food service with a good selection of kids food (and beers for the adults too)

    The instructor has gone through the same routine millions of times so he was bored and unsmiling. However, my one half hour experience was still fantastic. You can take off and land at any airport of the world, under any weather conditions, at any time of day. Some actions are automated and some depend on your handling of the control stick. I exited the cockpit just trembling with excitement. After landing, they give you a little gift as well as a souvenir certificate. Little money for a unique experience.

    The tour gives a quick glimpse into life at Dharavi. It’s a good learning about how Dharavi’s plastic, paint and leather industry functions. Tour guide Pooja Reddy, made it smooth for people of all ages to interact freely with locals. Informative tour, a must try!

    I was travelling to Mumbai with my husbands work, and my superb tour guide ‘Heer’ was arranged (through work) to show us some of the highlights of Mumbai. How lucky were we!!
    The tour was culturally based and curated just for us. Heer was incredible! I don’t think there was a question about the sites, or foods, or experiences, we had that Heer did not have the history or knowledge about. We had a tight schedule with only three days in Mumbai and Heer’s flexible and relaxed manner made our tour an absolute pleasure. We fit everything we wanted to see and never felt rushed or time controlled.
    Heer is an incredible, beautifully articulate tour guide and definitely someone I will recommend my friends call when they visit Mumbai. Thankyou Heer Kindest regards

    It has been a long time desire for me to ride Royal Enfield. But I was really skeptical due to my height and terrified by seeing the majestic gigantic body of the bike. I am delighted that I decided to overcome this fear by enrolling myself to this session with Enfield Riders this weekend. The power duo trainers - Vishal & Bob demonstrated their expertise and ensured a safe and enjoyable learning atmosphere. Their extensive knowledge, patience, and dedication made the learning experience truly exceptional. They tailored the lessons to individual needs, ensuring everyone grasped the skills necessary for safe and confident riding. The hands-on practice and insightful tips greatly helped on improving my riding skills and gave me a confident that “I can do it”. Kudos to the trainers for their professionalism and commitment for creating competent and confident riders. Additionally I would like to highlight the mapping of the members with each trainers which helped everyone to get equal participation. I felt this session gave me an opportunity to meet and get acquainted with the women with the same passion and this laid a root to get into this amazing community where not only women supporting women! But, it’s Riders supporting Riders!!! With wholeheartedly, I will give this session and the organisers - Enfield Riders , a well-deserved 5 stars for their professionalism and effectiveness. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to master the king of the motorcycles!!

    (NO SPOILERS)

    Recently came to Mumbai and went to visit the mystery rooms with friends. These rooms give you the full package with thrills, fun, intelligence and scares. We did 3 rooms which included “Cabin in the woods”, “Silent Legacy” and “A night in Bhangrah”.

    Cabin in the woods was a room which seemed small but it was enormous when you went ahead. I definitely recommend taking 3 people minimum for maximum efficiency. This room was perfect for beginners with all necessary thrills. The clues given were helpful and the staff was always helpful.

    For Silent legacy however it challenged our minds making us escape the room a bit slower than the others. It seemed like a small room but let me assure you there are surprises! The room challenges with your mind and chills you with the matching music.

    Lastly a Night in Bangarh was the most fun and unexpected room that I had done. The different elements with sensor based thrills will surely get a shrill to your senses.

    To conclude I would highly recommend coming to these mystery rooms to energize your thinking and have a day which is fun and investing in all types of ways. The staff are kind and welcoming in rooms and in the general assembly.
