Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), formerly known as Sahar International Airport, is the principal airport serving the Mumbai Metropolitan Area of India. With over 37 million passenger movements a year and growing, CSIA is the second busiest airport in India and has won multiple awards including the Best Airport in India award from the Airports Council International. Airports Council International also ranked it 3rd best airport in the world in the “25-40 million passengers” category. The CSIA airport complex consists of two terminals – Terminal 1 at Santacruz (domestic only) and Terminal 2 at Sahar (both international and domestic). The internal shuttle buses ferries passengers between the terminals every 20-30 minutes. Terminal 2 was inaugurated in early January 2014 and is one of the most modern, efficient, and state-of-the-art passenger terminals in India. The massive X-shaped airport is equipped to handle 40 million international and domestic passengers every year, with 192 check-in counters and 60 immigration counters. CSIA also has world-class facilities which include a wide range of dining options, lounge and travel services, the Niranta Airport Transit Hotel, and the world’s largest public art programme in an airport, the Jaya He Art Exhibit. CSIA also has free wireless Internet, but you are required to key in your mobile number and receive an SMS in order to log in.
CSIA is located 28 km from the Mumbai city center. The safest and most convenient option is to take a pre-paid taxi by purchasing tickets at one of the pre-paid taxi officers in the airport. There are a wide variety of companies to choose from, and if one company’s price is too steep, you can move on to the next one until you find one with a reasonable rate. You should not pay more than 450-600 Indian rupees (Rs) (HKD$53-71) for a taxi to downtown Mumbai. Although it’s not a must, it is common for passengers to give their drivers a small tip. Within the city center, passengers can get around via taxi, private taxis, or auto-rickshaws. Auto-rickshaws, also simply known as autos, are infamous for their rash drivers and weak suspensions – so prepare yourself for a wild and death defying ride! As with any major city, it is wise to travel in groups and to hire a private taxi (they are GPS-equipped and monitored) especially if you are female and traveling at night.
Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the capital of the state of Maharashtra and the largest city in India. It is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, and the commercial capital of India. Mumbai is also a city of extremes – the presence of Bollywood (Hindi cinema and film industry) in Mumbai gives the city a certain glamour and swank, yet it is home to India’s largest slum population, Dharavi. The primary tourist area in Mumbai is in the South Mumbai district, stretching across neighbourhoods such as Fort, Colaba, and Malabar Hill. South Mumbai is home to upmarket restaurants and bars, museums (such as the Prince of Wales Museum and the National Gallery of Modern Art), art galleries, and luxury retail shopping. A trip to Mumbai is also not complete without taking a tour of Bollywood’s celebrity homes, and an “Experience Bollywood” trip which takes you behind-the-scenes of a Bollywood shooting!
