On the 10th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: snap pictures at Bandra-Worli Sea Link, then admire the landmark architecture of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, then appreciate the history behind Gateway of India, and finally get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
