While in Mumbai this was our go to spot for shopping and dining! The vendors have some of the most beautiful (inexpensive) shopping around. The jewelry and clothing are perfect as gifts, too! I get complements every time I wear anything purchased here! Leopoldo's is a great (touristy) lunch or dinner spot. If you are in Mumbai you absolutely have... More

Costly, gaudy, with lots of dirt hidden under the carpet. Colaba represents the life and spirit of Mumbai. It is a contradiction in every sense of the term. there are seaside mansions and the costliest hotels in Mumbai, as well as the ritzy nightclubs, the glamorous restaurants, the famous pubs, the art galleries, the old and reputed shops. Then there... More

Of course one cannot help admiring the architectures and enjoying walking around this neighborhood. However, in spite of its artsy feeling (lots of good galleries there) we found it a little disappointing due to the activity often geared towards tourists.

I must say my review may be biased as I had been spending a lot of time in the market in Jaipur, Delhi, and Kochin. They are all similar. If you haven't seen a traditional market/shopping area in India, it's worth seeing. You can see stores selling food, clothes (some knock offs too), souvenirs, and also western brand stores. I...

The landscape of this place is just perfect and you are going to definitely love it. My family planned a visit to this place for doing shopping for my sister’s wedding and we got hold of some best jewelry pieces on economical rates. If you get tired and feel hungry there are some really good cafes nearby and McDonalds is... More
