The hub for want of a better word. Correlation of Portugese, British Raj and art deco architecture. Some wonderful sights. Good area for orientation of the city.

Colaba market is situated in the south Mumbai. Gateway of India is also near to this place. It is a crowded market where you can find a lot off restaurants to eat.

Walking around Colaba? (4 Replies)
I am going to Mumbai next week, and I am so much looking forward to it! I am staying at the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, and is wondering whether there are a lot of things to do and see within walking distance. Perhaps I should mention I am a single woman, travelling alone. What should I not miss?

First of all, please get yourself a copy of the Eicher Mumbai City Map. The Colaba area is well mapped on it. You will probbaly be given a link to a list of sights here, but I would additionally say - do not miss a bit of shopping at the roadside stalls of Colaba Causeway, it is part of the Mumbai experience, do see the Colaba market, visit Sassoon Docks between 6am and 7am if you think you have the stomach for it. The stink is something most people cannot stand, but you rarely get this...More
accommodation in Mumbai for October (12 Replies)
Have been looking for somewhere convenient to stay (have looked at Colaba and Fort areas) Accommodation does seem to be quite expensive. Does anyone have any ideas? We do not want to stay in a backpacker hostel - we're looking for somewhere clean and not tatty (with ensuite) which is not too expensive. Would like a pool but hotels with pools do seem very expensive. Thanks

Yes, Mumbai is expensive. What is your budget per night? The usual hotels we recommend in South Mumbai for those who do not wish to spend too much are Residency Fort, Chateau Windsor, Suba Palace, Sea Green, Sea Green South etc. These are between $70 to $100 per night approximately.
