Soon, hop on, hop off buses to tourist hot spots in Mumbai

Quote:
Here is a good news for tourists visiting the city for a Mumbai Darshan. The state government has planned a Hop on-Hop off (Ho-Ho) service, wherein tourists can take a ride from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and enjoy a day ride, with sightseeing at various locations without getting worried about missing the bus.

Although the service is in place in Delhi and Goa, Mumbai's service will offer tourists food/snacks inside an air-conditioned deck, which will be like a restaurant. The bus will also have a toilet facility.

Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) has bought 11 double-decker buses and designed them with a restaurant-cum-viewing gallery. Half of the upper deck will be air-conditioned while other half will be open. The tourism department has spent around Rs 75 lakh on each bus.

The cost of a day ride is yet to be finalised but it could be Rs 450-500 a person, a senior tourism department official said.

The department is a bit skeptical about the journey period from CSMT to Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) because of the Metro work on the Western Express Highway. An hour's journey may end up taking 2-3 hours, said an official.

An art project is bridging divides at Mumbai’s Sassoon Dock


Plastic Ocean by TAN ZI XI | Akshat Nauriyal

Quote:
A walk down the path from the bell tower off Colaba Causeway to Sassoon Dock in South Mumbai on a windy afternoon is a sensorial experience. The salty breeze carries with it the unmistakable whiff of fish. Fresh crab – pincers intact – is adroitly packed in crates of ice and loaded into trucks, accompanied by a quick yell of instructions. An egret or two swoop past, trying their luck at picking shrimp piled into baskets atop pullcarts. While the clamour of a bustling morning at the 142-year-old dock and the adjoining fish-market has died out, a feeble frenzy is still palpable.

White flags emblazoned with “Art for All” in Roman and Devnagri scripts flutter on bobbing trawlers. And you are compelled to stop in your tracks and notice 350-odd black-and-white portrait-style photographs of the local fisherfolk plastered across the frontal façades of eight warehouses since last month. These are part of the Inside Out Project, one of the many works that comprise the ongoing Sassoon Dock Art Festival, an initiative of the Delhi-based not-for-profit foundation St+Art India.

A global participatory project by French artist JR, the rendering of the Inside Out Project by Akshat Nauriyal – one of the founders of St+Art India – along with photographer Pranav Gohil and graphic designer Ravi Patel, confronts the first-time visitor head-on. “[The] people who are photographed here have an intricate, powerful relationship with the space they inhabit,” explained Nauriyal, who is also the festival’s content director and digital head. “There is a notion that only the faces of famous people can be pasted on walls, but here you have the people who belong to the space seeing their own portraits.”

Really Great Article by Aarosh. I would like to add some more places and things to do in Mumbai. You can enjoy hikes in the encompassing slopes which can be joined with rappelling and camping. You can appreciate cruising on a yacht in the Mumbai harbor or figure out how to cruise in a yachting foundation. You can likewise visit the Elephanta Caves for unimaginable specialty of cutting. There are several spots of worship in Mumbai however none matches the elegance of Haji Ali, so one can visit it for some excitment and beauty. Watching plays is another sort of fun and for this you can have a go at watching a live play in Prithvi theater. For some fascinating plunder you can likewise visit Chor Bazaar which is a shortsighted market wherein you get all high – marked items at an extremely shoddy cost.

You can likewise look and welcome the excellence of the Queen Necklace from the agreeable view that Hanging Gardens offers at any rate once before you leave this great city. There are also number of ferries leaving Gateway of India all for the duration of the day. Watch the city from a distance by sitting in one of these ferries. Or are you an adrenaline junkie? Or looking for some adventure and recreation? You should surely go visit Della Adventure Park. Also paces like Hard Rock Café and Blue Frog occasionally initiate live music gigs by various popular Indian and Western musicians, so you can have a significant impact there.

No doubt, Mumbai has so many good places, but due to shortage of time I visited a few places there last year. These places are really awesome and would like to suggest every person will visit Mumbai in near future, must go there. These are:


Juhu Beach.
Bandra Worli Sea Link.
Siddhgad-Bhimashankar.
Elephanta Caves

But I missed Marine Drive. I hope in next trip I will surely visit it.
