Jira-Jett's City Tips

  • If you want to see the historical part, old bombay is a bit distant from the new town and it can take upto 1 hours to reach but it is quite worth to come down to south Mumbai.
  • Mumbai has new and old part like many great city in the world. the old Mumbai has a lot of story to tell and has many beautiful landscapes and heritage from the British empire.
