  • Shopping

    Crowded with umpteen markets and malls, Mumbai is a shopper’s paradise. If this is your first visit to the city then shopping must be quite high up on your ‘to do’ list and rightly so. From high end brands to clever fakes, from elegant silver jewellery to the hidden gems of chor bazaar, Mumbai is nothing short of a fascinating pandora’s box. A visit to Linking Road, Chor Bazaar and Fashion Street is a must for every serious shopper. Besides the usual snazzy malls the city has to offer, the tiny markets spread all over the city give you the real deal. The only trick to shopping in Mumbai is your exceptional bargaining skills. Don’t settle in for the price the shopkeeper offers under any circumstances, haggle and haggle some more for your treat. The emporiums in the city are another wonderful place to shop at. You’ll find traditional handicrafts, silver jewellery and other goodies in abundance here.
    Happy shopping hoping then.

  • Culinary Delights

    Fresh seafood, spicy pao bhaji, crispy bhel puri and slurpy paani puri, yes all this and more in this cosmopolitan. Foodies, throw away your diet plans and sit back to enjoy this delicious culinary ride. From grand dining options to cosy cafes, the city has it all. Enveloped in history, Leopold Cafe offers such enticing delights while Theobroma is a favourite hotspot with coffee lovers. For scrumptious seafood, nothing beats Mahesh Lunch Home for its flavoured fish biryani and spicy prawns.
    The street food in Mumbai calls out to you from all corners of the city. Take a leisurely stroll on Juhu beach and indulge in some appetising snacks. From authentic vada pao to the good old bun and butter, let the street maestros impress you with their skills.

    Take a break from long shopping trips, sightseeing sprees and treat yourself to some delicious grub.

    The city of the ‘Gateway of India’, Haji Ali Dargah, the beautiful Marine Drive and the bustling Juhu Beach. Mumbai is enveloped in an enthralling history and its own distinct cultural heritage. If exploring the city is on your mind, then plan well. The sheer size of the city will surprise you and so will the mayhem. Squeeze in your shopping trips, traveling time and other tidbits lest you miss out on some unique sites.

The Hanging Gardens, Marine Drive, Chowpatty and Bandra Fort are some of the places you must visit besides the usual spots on your city map.

  • Adventure bugs

    Calling out to all the adventure bugs! Head to Mumbai and get a taste of some different adventure. With the traffic snarls, chaos and mayhem, there is adventure enough. Yet if you are looking for some adrenaline pumping stuff, think no more and head straight to Essel World. Yes, one of the biggest amusement parks in the country, Essel World is India’s own Disneyland. Numerous thrilling rides, an enthralling water park and pure fun, Essel World lets you unleash the child in you and go absolutely crazy. Plan your holiday well, as you’ll need at least one day to explore and enjoy this world of zig zag rides. Reach the park in the morning to avoid the rush and the afternoon sun. As the afternoon sun welcomes you, head indoors for multiple arcade games and hit the pool as soon as the sun descends.
    If amusement parks don’t excite you as much, don’t worry. Hop onto a ferry and head to the enchanting
    Elephanta caves. Immersed in art and history, the caves are a delight to explore. After a short 1 km uphill climb, you reach the Great Cave and then head to the smaller caves spread across the island. The beautiful Elephanta caves offer you a day of peace and serenity. Stroll around and take in the grandeur and splendour the caves have to offer.

With so much to do, Mumbai will definitely keep you busy. Shop, eat and explore, the city is yours to discover.
