Mumbai could soon be home to new theme parks, aquariums and other tourist attractions

Mumbai could soon be the site of many new tourist attractions, including theme parks and aquariums.

The city is the state capital of Maharashtra and is one of the most populated on the planet with more than 20 million people calling it home. As one of the richest areas of India it is already popular with tourists looking to see its deep natural harbour and the hub of the Bollywood film industry.

However, the Hindustan Times reports the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation is in the process of drawing up plans to provide new tourist hotspots and ways of better promoting the city’s existing ones.

“We need to create more spots such as theme parks, gardens and aquariums,” said Rahul Shewale, civic standing committee chairman.

Avinash Dhakne, former managing director of the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation, said that the idea was a positive one and local civic bodies all over the world had played a proactive role in tourism development.
