Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge (video preview)

Back in 2005, the trip from Mumbai airport to Colaba, in the Southern Mumbai, took some one hour, when you had to drive through the whole city of Mumbai. Although the trip through the city was a very thrilling experience for a first timer, it was still nice to experience this Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge which they had built on the sea, to make the travelling in Mumbai a lot easier and much faster, ten years later – In 2015 a taxi from Mumbai airport to Colaba took more than half an hour less of your time. Less than thirty minutes outside rush hour.

During night time this Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge is lit nicely and you can enjoy the night time view along with the traffic lights and skyscraper lights from hotels like Taj Lands End in Bandra. This is a very much recommendable sight during night, I must say. Unfortunately this hotel did not have a roof top terrace with a restaurant – That would have really crown it all.

Day time you can visit the near by Bandra Fort and park and then watch the sun set in the horizon, behind the Arabian Sea. Sunset on the rocks in Bandra Bandstand will look something like in the video you will find in the link.

Elephanta Caves in Mumbai, India (video preview)

I mentioned about the Elephanta Caves in Mumbai, India, back in 2006, when I was visiting there, and shooting the video attached below. The blog article from that period of time, 2006, with the tiny images, is what was possible to post from India back then. Reason being the laptop with its extremely slow speed for any kind of function, from shifting the photos from my camera to the computer and then cropping them and shifting to a memory stick and taking to an Internet cafe. And then on top of all that we had the very slow internet connection in a Mumbai Net Cafe back then, which took several minutes for a few kilobytes.

So much trouble in 2006, only to tell you about the great sight of Elephanta Caves, which is one them World Heritage Sites located in India. Inside the caves there are many stone carvings made of Hindu Gods. Protected from the monsoon weather. Reachable only by boat.

Today, in 2018, internet enables you to see many other videos about the Elephanta Caves in Mumbai after watching this short video of mine. So do take a look and enjoy you visual adventure!
