Connecting travelers with locals through food and experiences

Mumbai, India

Mumbai, the capital of the State of Maharashtra, is India’s New York and Hollywood all rolled into one. Trains roll into Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) from all over the country packed with people who have nothing but hope and dreams. Being a “Mumbaikar” means a lot of things, but you can’t refer to them as locals. That’s because a local here refers to the suburban electric trains that take Mumbai’s teeming masses from home to work and back. One of the signature thrills in Mumbai is squeezing your way into a crowded local and managing to get off in one piece.
If you have a strong stomach, you have to try some of the mouth-watering foods. Remember vada pav, puri bhaji , misal pav, pav bhaji, idli sambar, and dosa. There’s no point in explaining what these dishes mean – you should just know that it’s all extremely spicy stuff that’s often made and sold on the streets in food carts. If you wish to have a full Indian experience, join one of the street food tours, during which you local tour guide will suggest you the best and tastiest delicacies. Mumbai for tourists can likewise mean a lot of things. You can stick to the usual tourist attractions and join the tours to the Gateway of India, Elephanta Caves, Hanging Gardens, Flora Fountain and the Jehangir Art Gallery. Or you can wade in, join a local private tour and experience the real Mumbai – the one that the locals (the people) enjoy. Think of touring through the endless line of sidewalk vendors in the Fort area, or beachfront fast food with an ocean view at Chowpatty or Juhu Beach. Local are very friendly and welcoming. Booking one of the custom private Mumbai tours will give you an opportunity to experience Mumbai in completely new light.

Top 10 Things to Do in Mumbai, India

  • Street Food Tour - If you don’t eat vada pav in Thane or pani puri or bhel puri at Chowpatty or Juhu Beach, your Mumbai experience is going to be just that tiny little bit incomplete.
  • Fort Walking Tour - The Fort area is a delightful place of discovery, where you’ll stumble upon historic attractions on every road and street. It helps that the street vendors offering all kinds of goods will keep you interested as you walk around.
  • Chor Bazaar Shopping - The literal translation of Chor Bazaar on Mutton St near Mohammad Ali Rd is “Thieves Market.” You can indeed find anything you want at a steal of a price, if you know how to haggle.
  • Bollywood Tour - Taking a trip to Film City is one of the unique experiences that you can get only in Mumbai and nowhere else.
  • Religious Tour - Mumbai’s collection of magnificent historic temples, mosques, churches, synagogues, gurudwaras and Parsi fire temples will keep you occupied all day long.
  • Ferry Ride to Elephanta - As a happy trooper of a tourist, you’re expected to visit the Gateway of India. But the fun part is the ferry ride to the Elephanta Caves nine miles offshore.
  • Marine Drive - The so-called Queen’s Necklace is the perfect place for a long drive or walk with the sea breeze on your face and a fantastic view of the City skyline. Stop by at Chowpatty for street food.
  • Dhobi Ghat - Dhobi Ghat in Mahalaxmi is where Mumbai (literally) airs all its dirty laundry. It’s an amazing sight to see such a massive laundry operation.
  • Mahalaxmi Race Course - Enjoy the races and then check out the Haji Ali mosque and Heera Panna Shopping Center.
  • Ride the Local Train - The local transit here is largely dependent on the electric trains called ‘locals’ that run on the central, western and harbor lines. If you dare, try boarding a local heading towards CST on the central line at 9 am, or the other way in the evening.

Unique Things in Mumbai, India

  • Street Shopping – Apart from sidewalks in the Fort area, you can also hit up Chor Bazaar in South Mumbai (literal translation – thieves market) where you’ll get anything you want at prices you won’t believe. If you’re looking for electronics goods or IT parts, head for Lamington Road.
