Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully.

Interested in Melbourne? Consider Mumbai

Book flights to Mumbai with Etihad Airways and get ready to delve into a wonderfully vibrant city that will fascinate you with its contrasts. Awaiting you is a land of colonial relics, modern skyscrapers, impressive temples, and peaceful parks.

Plan Your Mumbai Holiday

There are many ways to discover Mumbai: admiring the colonial jewels along the streets of the Fort neighbourhood, looking deep into the world of Bollywood, appreciating Mongolian paintings at the Prince of Wales Museum, or looking for a bargain in the shops that populate Colaba Causeway. When evening falls, sites such as the boulevard on Marine Drive and the Haji Ali Dargah Mosque offer the best views of the city.

Travel to Mumbai without restricting yourself to its urban areas as there is so much more to see. If you want to take advantage of any of the flight deals to Mumbai, plan a visit to see the impressive caves on Elephanta Island, the waterfalls of Lonavla, and a sunrise at Juhu Beach. Remember that the rainy season runs from June until September, so keep this in mind when you buy tickets to Mumbai, although finding cheap hotels in Mumbai during these months will be easier.
