The Taj Mahal Palace
This regal five-star hotel, built in 1903, is a city landmark as well as a tourist attraction. Many of its rooms have views out over the Gateway of India and the Arabian Sea. It’s definitely worth a visit even if you’re not staying here: Grab a drink at the Harbour Bar or a bite to eat at one of the many on-site restaurants, which serve everything from afternoon tea accompanied by live piano music to sushi made with ingredients flown in from Japan.
