Tourists could soon sail to other countries from Mumbai.
There could soon be another major attraction for people heading to Mumbai for their holiday of a lifetime.
The city is already one of the most vibrant in the world and brings lots of diverse cultures together, but soon holidaymakers could use Mumbai as a base to see other regions.
Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has announced that plans to introduce an international cruise terminal in Mumbai are underway, reports DNA India.
He outlined the proposals while speaking at a convention organised by the Indian Association of Tour Operators on Thursday (August 30th) and said that it was needed to facilitate the rising number of tourists opting for luxury cruise services to countries like Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.
“We have been witnessing large numbers of international cruise tourists arriving in the city. The international cruise terminal would help facilitate tourism,” Mr Chavan added.
This means that holidaymakers could flight to Mumbai and experience India before heading off to recharge their batteries on the high seas.
