Take the boy outta Mumbai, but not Mumbai outta the boy
It doesn't matter where you hail from, Mumbai is the 1 place in India where all your dreams will become reality and the actuality of life will be as clear as crystal.

Shop at Colaba Causeway!
Termed as the "Culture Square" of Mumbai, there are stalls after stalls of every possible item you can think of - jewellery, clothes, bags, Indian handicrafts - at affordable prices. There are also cafes and restaurants along the way, in case you want to stop for a bite.

Watch a Bollywood movie at Metro ADLABS
It'll be the best three hours spent! Full of colour, dance, hip-shaking musical beats and a lovely romantic storyline, you will love it!

Go dog-walking down the pathway at Marina Drive/Nariman Point
Especially during the sunrise/sunset time. It is not only a refreshing and healthy activity, but it makes you feel at peace.[/B]

Alternatively, view the lights at Nariman Point at night - the lights are dubbed as "The Queen's Necklace" because of its beauty at night.

Get your hand beautifully done in Henna
It is similar to a temporary tattoo and gives you a lovely reddish-brown colour on your skin and may last up to 30 days.
Look for cones of henna at the local markets at Colaba for around 100 Rs.


Catch up with old friends or make new ones over coffee at Cafe Coffee Day.
And make sure you pick a time of the day when it'll probably be quiet - it's the perfect place to hang out and socialise over delicious caffeine goodness!

Catch the local trains with friends at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus
It will be an eye-opening experience.

Visit the Taj Mahal Hotel
If you're rich enough, else adore its architecture from all angles.
The Taj Hotel was subjected to terrorist attacks in 2008, but they have since renovated the targeted areas, and it looks beyond majestic.

Not too far from the Taj Hotel is the Gateway of India - it's absolutely beautiful to visit it at sunset.

Learn how to wear a sari
And then flaunt it in public! But wear flats, if you're not 100% confident with the sari.

Enjoy the Mumbai skyline at night
It is absolutely invigorating to see the city light up with life at night.

Visit the Phoenix Shopping Complex
It is a shopping destination paradise - but if shopping is not your thing, then simply adore the majesty of this complex. It's got everything you can ask for - clothing stores, shoe stores, a cinema and a cafeteria.
