“Shop till you drop - at Colaba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Colaba is one of Mumbai's upmarket shopping centres, with trendy fashion shops, the Sahakari Bhandar supermarket, the Regal Theatre, the popular Leopold Cafe, the Taj Palace Hotel, Gateway of India and a great deal more all in the general area. It attracts a large number of locals as well as tourists, particularly in the evenings.I should emphasise that, while Mumbai is the most expensive city in India, it is one of the cheapest cities globally. Years back, Indians used to visit Singapore for shopping. Today, because of the very strong Singapore Singapore dollar, Singaporeans come to shop in Mumbai.

“Nice Bargain Shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Colaba area is worth a visit, but one can be taken for a ride on prices. Be careful when bargaining.
