The Southern tip of Mumbai -a large gateway looking into the sea- Mughal Architecture I think with the Taj Mahal Hotel as a backdrop.Lovely promenade and evening sit-out. Watch the boats and launches taking off to Elephanta Island ,sail boats bobbing in the sea, and ships passing by on the horizon.Walk up the promenade during light hours.From there to High Street colaba through lanes and byelanes lined with London like buildings and homes.Other than the five star hotels,lodgings are not of a good quality and can be also steeply priced. Food places are plenty though.Take your pick along this causeway- as it is known.Take a bus from outside Regal cinema to pass by three churches on the way and finally visit Afghan Church and a Parsi agiary just opposite to it after which is the army area. Walking may be a bit tough due to the traffic and no pavements seen. Best time -early morning before 9.00am. Public toilets only near the Gateway or visit restaurants after enquiring if they have a restroom.
Many visitors to Mumbai prefer staying in Colaba as it is close to the Rail station and private bus stations.However one needs to move away from Colaba and move further North if one wants to really experience Mumbai- the city that never sleeps.More about this in further reviews.
