Visited Colaba for shopping. Colaba Causeway is a delight if you're looking for trinkets and gifts. Runs parallel to the sea front so you can enjoy a nice boat ride as well. Starbucks, Taj Hotel all within walking distance. Good choice of places to eat as well.

In Colaba you're at the very heart of this enormous city. The main tourist sights - the Gateway of India, Leopold's Cafe, Chhatrapati Shivaji station, the Maidan Oval among others,plus shops, bars and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. If you're flush with cash, stay at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel. For the more budget-conscious, I'd recommend the Suba... More
