Taking tea in Juhu marke playt

Juhu is a wealthy area of Mumbai and popular with ex-pats. Like many parts of the city it was originally an island which could be reached at low tide. The beach has long been a main attraction. In the late nineteenth century Juhu was a beach resort away from the overcrowded city to the south. Today the area is sometimes described as "The Beverly Hills of Bollywood" because of the high number of Indian film stars who live here. As you will see in our schools section, Juhu is convenient for several international schools." (Part of our tour of Juhu in the Mumbai guide)
