Curios, cheap clothing and other knick knacks all sold on the roadside in the 1-2 km stretch starting from Regal theatre until Strand. Bargaining is the name of the game. Foreigners get preferential treatment from these shopkeepers as they have the greenbacks and we Indians know what the actual value is and are hard nosed bargainers.

Architecture reminds you of... More

This is one of the street shopping place in mumbai. Difference is that you can find many foreign nation people than any other shopping place in mumbai. Main things you can find here is collectibles, ornaments and clothing. But don't forget to haggle. :D

It has lots of tourist souvenir shops - places that give tour operators/drivers kick backs for bringing in tourists

The Colaba causeway is a tourist mecca for all things touristy but be prepared to bargain hard and fast or be ripped off as these street hawkers can see a sucker a mile away.
