SoBo as South Mumbai is often called, is a treasure-trove of history and culture, bearing testimony to a long Colonial rule. It is home to the oldest and the newest areas of Mumbai – the original island of Bombay, on which Fort St George was built and Nariman Point, reclaimed from the seas in the 1970s. The wealthy South Mumbai extends from Colaba to Mahim in the south and to Sion in the north. Expect historical buildings, shopping areas, a thriving business district and expansive walking areas.
