Mumbai is the safest places to live in India and also the most difficult if you were to use trains for commuting and/or live more than 5-6 kilometers from work. The weather is pleasant during winters, rains are erratic (for couple of weeks, once a year, it will rain cats and dogs - 24/7) however not all that bad, summers are more humid than hot. The city has everything that one will find in any other metro of the world and is also one of the most populated in the world. You will find cars plying on the main roads even throughout the night. But if you can accustom yourself and find your way of living in the order of its chaos (as everyone in the city does) then you will find meaning in the phrase that every Mumbaikar (person hailing from Mumbai) uses... you will be able to manage and live in any other part of this world with ease!
