Mumbai Expat Guide
Find Out What Mumbai Has to Offer to Expats
The large Indian hub of Mumbai is located on the west coast of India, and is centered around the bustling Mumbai Harbor. Remnants of the British Raj still cover the city, including the Gateway of India and the impressive Victoria Station. Its city center is now also decorated with high-rise buildings and is home to the world-famous Bollywood film industry. India itself has other havens too that are just a train-ride away, such as the former Portuguese colony of Goa, laden with beaches and Western amenities.
Many Indian locals in Mumbai speak English, their high level of education and willingness to practice will make any English-speaking expat welcome almost immediately. Because of the high level of education, one of India's bestselling industries is its export of information technology to other countries. There may be a number of cultural adjustments to make when moving to Mumbai, but many feel welcomed by the friendly population of locals and expats in the city.
The city of Mumbai can be a little dirty and polluted, but there is a large community of expats and wealthy Indians that reside in the luxury hotels and lavish clubs in the city. Many expats, however, move to Mumbai to support the large population of people living in poverty, and may work for NGO groups or as a volunteer. Expats living in Mumbai have often reported how safe they feel, even at night, and feel that their children receive a good level of education.
