"Mumbai?  An expensive city and not much to see "

This is what I often heard from foreign travellers whom I met in other part of the country.

Hotels are more expensive than Indian average ***, but it is not the case of everything.....

 

*** According to the latest " five stars hotels' average price index" published by Hotel.com,  Mumbai is rated as the forth city in the world which offers a most attractive average price per night in its five stars hotels (October 2014).
