A trip from New Delhi to Mumbai

Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the talent hub of the country where people from all over the country move to every year to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. The city is a beautiful amalgamation of people, old buildings, nice cafes and beaches. The local trains make it convenient for people to travel from the suburbs to their workplaces. The city is prettiest during the monsoons.

I and my friends had decided to go for a trip to this beautiful city of dreams, as what everybody calls it, when we were in college but could never execute the plan. Last month, we decided to take a break from work and go for it. We did not regret the decision even a bit.

We boarded the premium 12954 August Kranti Rajdhani Express from H. Nizamuddin Railway Station to Mumbai Central. You can save a few bucks by choosing this option over the Rajdhani Express, which is what we did. This is also another fast option. It departed at 4.50 p.m. and arrived at 9.45 a.m. the next morning.

You can also take the 12952 New Delhi – Mumbai Central Rajdhani Express which departs New Delhi Railway Station at 4.25 p.m. and arrives at Mumbai Central at 8.15 a.m. the next morning. The train runs every day, and meals are included. If you want a very comfortable journey, you have this option. Another option is taking a flight, by booking ticket online, you can get some great deals on airline tickets.

It is one of the major tourist destinations in Mumbai, and it is usually crowded with street vendors, photographers and serves as a hangout spot for the locals.
