Editor Rating: 4-Mumbai is pretty inexpensive compared to large western cities, but it is one of the most expensive cities in India. But you can still get by on a pretty tight budget here.
Indie Travel Scale
Editor Rating: 8-India is one of the biggest indie destinations in the world because there just isn't anything like traveling in India. Mumbai can be overwhelming to first time visitors, but if you're going to begin in a large city in India, better to do it here than in Delhi or Kolkata.
