Things to do in Mumbai

The city’s sightseeing may have once solely revolved around religion, history and architecture. But now the abundance of things to do in Mumbai will exceed your expectations, with its shopping malls, cocktail bars and vibrant Bollywood film industry.

Beyond the chaos and mayhem, you’ll discover the colonial grandeur of Fort with its museums and galleries, a warren of bazaars that are bursting with life and trendy night spots fit for Mumbai’s Bollywood hopefuls. Skyscrapers and malls have sprung up, reinforcing its title as the centre of film and fashion and injecting the city with a new lease of life.

Shopping

Mumbai is bursting with exciting shopping experiences, from the colourful pavement vendors that line Colaba Causeway to the fascinating Chor Bazaar (Thieves market) and the luxurious shopping malls and boutiques. Shop for bargain shoes and clothes at Linking Road or sample delicious street food at Crawford Market.

Sightseeing

Mumbai is the centre of India’s booming Bollywood film industry. Adsorb the splendour of the Eros Cinema or take a ferry across to Elephanta Island and see the triple-headed Shiva sculpture. Catch a glimpse of some of the city’s wonderful heritage buildings, with their intricate colonial architecture - the Victoria Terminus railway station will take your breath away.

Food.

Food

Sample finger-licking pav bhaji or sizzling skewered kebabs - grab-and-go dining has never tasted better. Embrace the Parsi café culture of days gone by, enjoy Sunday brunch buffet at the highly respected Indigo restaurant or head to Olive Bar & Kitchen for a countryside-style-picnic and live jazz.

Nightlife.

Nightlife

The Blue Frog is without a doubt the most happening live music venue in Mumbai, while Not Just Jazz by The Bay boasts a wonderful waterfront location and Firangi Paani enjoys a charming and cosy English pub feel. The rooftop Aer Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel is an incredible place to sip cocktails as the sun sets.
