What do I need to know about living in Mumbai?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Mumbai, they said:

"Mumbai is a vibrant and bustling city, and it can be an exciting place to retire. Before retiring in Mumbai, expats should research the cost of living and the availability of healthcare and other services. It is also important to familiarize oneself with the local culture and customs, as well as the language. Additionally, expats should consider the climate and the air quality, as Mumbai can be quite hot and humid, and air pollution can be a problem. Finally, expats should look into the visa requirements and the process for obtaining a residence permit," wrote a member in Mumbai.
