Mumbai — coined 'Maximum City' by Indian author Suketu Mehta — is a metropolis where everything, or rather everybody, is always on the move. This is a city that never sleeps, stops, or slows down, and its infectious buzz is like nothing I've experienced in all my travels. From the nameless rickshaw driver to the Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai, this place accepts us all. A food haven for some, a city where dreams come true for others, and simply home for me, Mumbai sparks an emotion that dwells in every 'Mumbaikar' and inspires every visitor. Enjoy your three days in this non-stop city!

IshaS26's City Tips

  • December to February is possibly the best time to visit this city in terms of the weather.
  • If you are looking to experience traditional festivals during your trip, March (Holi), November (Diwali), August (Janmashtami) and September (Ganesh Chaturthi) might be interesting travel times to consider.
  • Be sure to brush up on your haggling skills before arriving in Mumbai, as well as learning a couple of hindi words like nahi (no), haa (yes), and chale ga (ok).
  • Always take a rickshaw that runs by the meter; never take pre-paid (fixed price) rickshaws, unless at an airport.
  • This guide covers most of the must-see locations but is also aims to help you experience Mumbai like a true Bombayiite (note that many of the city's inhabitants still use Mumbai and Bombay interchangeably). Its aim is to take you to the city's best hidden gems and experiential musts, rather than sticking solely to the tourist favorites.
  • Great shops to visit include: Bunaglow 8 (fashion and lifestyle concept store), Forest Essentials (ayurvedic products that I swear by), Fab India (amazing decor items and fun, fashionable Indian outfits).

    This is a cute little café in South Bombay that is famous for its adorable interiors and scrumptious breakfast options. It is an extremely small 20 to 25 seater restaurant, but if you're lucky enough to find a place here, the breakfast sliders are an absolute must-try!

    This is a definite must-see in Bombay. Built in 1924, this gate is located at the tip of Apollo Bunder, overlooking the Mumbai harbor. At one point in time, this monument represented the grandeur of the British Raj in India, and ironically, it was also the exact same spot to see the last set of British troops and divisions leave India, post-independence in 1948.

    This is an area where you can feel the beating pulse of this lively city. It's hard to point out any specific must-sees in the area however, as words simply cannot capture its unique dynamics — you simply have to go and experience its charm for yourself in person. From pre-independence building structures to old-time restaurants, this area is something of a transition between the timeless Bombay and the restless, modern city of Mumbai. You will pass by beautiful structures and see glimpses of Mumbai's colonial past, and then be brought quickly back to the present day by the typically Indian street vendors that pepper the streets. Hop in a taxi, enjoy the adventure, and embrace the completely atypical culture that is Colaba for a while!

A major tourist attraction, its streets are lined with vendors selling Indian artifacts, clothes, jewelry, and, well, absolutely anything and everything you can think of! And at super cheap prices too... well, at least they are if you know how to bargain!

    Café Leopold is one of the oldest and most famous establishments in the area, and has withstood time, as well as (unfortunately) terrorist attacks. This café was a target of the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai (2008), and you can still find the bullet marks from that horrific night in the restaurant interiors. Support its resilience by grabbing a beer (Kingfisher Ultra) in this extremely lively environment, complete with crazily cheap food that is awesome value for money!

    This stretch is one you are sure to cross at some point during your stay in Mumbai. A promenade lies parallel to this road, and its streetlights — when viewed from an elevated point, anywhere along the drive — give it an illusion of a pearl necklace (hence it is often referred to as the 'Queen's Necklace').

    Often most easily described as 'a scene from Slumdog Millionaire,' with M.I.A.'s Paper Planes playing in the background, the Mumbai slums are possibly the most misinterpreted aspect of the city. A quick search for 'local tours' will take you to an operator who takes tourists to see slum life as it is in reality, the perfect way to counter the exaggerated claims of crime and squalor. I can personally vouch for the authenticity of the Dharavi experience too, as I did my dissertation on whether these tours are in fact, genuine!

    Elco is one of the most famous Pani Puri houses in the city, and a great lunch alternative, or snack stop. (Pani Puri for those who don't know, is Bombay's most favored street food.) 'Puri' is a thin, hollow crisp — almost like an egg shell — made with semolina and flour. This crisp is cracked, and then filled with either potato and sprouts or white peas; a 'pani' that is sour, tangy, and spicy; and then balanced with the addition of a sweet tamarind chutney. My very elaborate description of the dish is surely enough to substantiate its 'must try' status!

    Mount Mary Church is perched high atop a hillock near Lands End Bandra, overlooking the Arabian Sea. It is a beautiful edifice in stone that simply stands out in its grandeur; an abode of tranquility, peace, reassurance, and hope. It is one of the most serene places you can find in this otherwise bustling city, and a must-visit for anyone in the area.

    This is another great breakfast option in case you feel like venturing out for something more classic in Mumbai. If you are an avid reader, or a lone traveler, this is the perfect place to start your day — considering the entrance to the café (wittily named, 'Food for Thought') is accessed through this shop. Kitab Khana, which literally means a 'drawer full of books,' definitely lives up to its name, both in terms of the number of books it has to offer, and even more so, in its ambiance. Housed in a heritage structure which is almost 150 years old, this multi-purpose space showcases a fabulous piece of India's past, and transports you into the mystical world of books!

    IshaS26 Says:

    ISKCON Temple, also known as Hare Rama Hare Krishna Temple, is located in one of the prime areas in Juhu, and is one of the most inspired constructions of a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna in Mumbai. The idols are dressed in specifically designed, handmade garments, and are changed daily, along with their rituals and proceedings of the day. When visiting this temple you will feel transported in a spiritual sense, carried away by the continuous singing, dancing, and celebration of the devotees on a spiritual Krishna 'high.' I, for one, feel peace and energy all at once every single time I am here, and am often overwhelmed by emotions.
