One cannot visit Mumbai without shopping in Colaba. We found a variety of shops to suit any shopper. Be prepared to walk as its quite a stretch to get used to. All the known brands are found there and ofcourse, the fine restaurants to relax while shopping.

If you are in mumbai then you must visit here. Awesome place to walk and look around those beautiful structures and buildings, market to get traditional Indian stuff and best is the food and quality of people. People are very helpful and well behaved. Just loved going around.

This is the trendy district in Mumbai. (Together with Bandra which is much further to the North) Lots of bars, restaurants, markets, the Gateway to India, boats to nearby island, shops all within walking distance.
