When you visit Chor bazar you must accompany yourself with a person who is good at bargaining. Chor baar in Mumbai is a market which sells different variety of antiques and unique products. You can get every product with a reasonable rates in this market, but you cannot expect any guarantee or warranty for the same.

This place can be visited if you are good in bargaining and has interest in unique items. One needs to be cautious here.

Chor Bazar or "Thieves Market" as it translates in the local language, is a super crowded area made up of small alleys / bylanes. Each alley specializes in different things. Mohammad Ali road has lots of nice curios & antiques- a Must visit in Mumbai. But be prepared for crowds, pickpockets (keep your wallet in the front pocket), and haggling...... More

A trip to Mumbai is incomplete without a trip to Chor Bazaar. Located in the older part of south Mumbai the narrow streets are filled with shops on either side selling anything from clothes to used furniture to gramophones to car parts. There is always a deal to be made. And yes be sure to bargain. Antiques maybe fake or... More

An interesting flea market (closed on Fridays) with all kind of stuff: from car parts, tools, used electronics but also Hindu divinities sculptures, colonial furniture, pieces of ships (sextants, ship lights, etc..), Bollywood film posters, old camera, old toys, .... Time and patience required but a lot of opportunities to have fun looking for The piece!!! Bargaining highly recommended.

Very interesting place to spend a couple hours to immerse yourself in Mumbai street culture. Go in morning to avoid heat of the day but note that some vendors don't open until 11 am. Keep an eye out for motorbikes.
