Two Days In Mumbai – What To See, Where To Shop, Where To Eat

If you were to spend two days in Mumbai, here’s a lot of things that you could, apart from getting stuck in traffic that is!

Mumbai is a big and a beautiful city with lots and lots of people. It’s also the hub of the Hindi film industry. Of course its impossible to see the city in 48 hours. Nevertheless, here’s a mini travel guide to help you.

You could stay in any of the hotels. There are lots of options accommodating to your budget. You could hire a private cab or travel locally in the city via the local taxi or auto.

WHAT TO SEE

There are plenty of tourist spots that you could explore. Go see the spectacular view of the Gateway of India and the Taj Mahal Palace hotel next to it. Drive around marine drive and Nariman point in the evening or at night. If you haven’t been here before, it would look a lot familiar as you would have certainly seen it in movies and songs. Go to Juhu beach that gorgeously overlooks the Arabian sea. Take the Bandra-Worli sea link to travel from the west to the south of the city. Check out the beautiful architecture of the historical railway station CST-Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and finally there are a lot of temples to see if you want to, like Siddhivinayak temple, Mahalakshmi temple and more.

WHERE TO SHOP

If you want to shop at the malls, then visit Palladium mall and High street Phoenix in Lower Parel and Inorbit mall in Malad.

But when you are in Mumbai, two words – Street Shopping. There are some great places for street shopping. Go crazy bargaining for trendy shoes and more at Linking road for a very low price. Do shop at Hill road as well. Go to Colaba Causeway in South Mumbai. Its beautiful and you’ll find wide variety of accessories and more.

If you are in the mood to splurge, you can find the best and many famous designer stores in the city. Visit Aza and Kimaya which are multi-designer stores. Shop at Le mill. Also while in Colaba do check out the beautiful store of Bombay electric.  Stores like this one and bungalow eight are quite different and beautifully set up.

WHERE TO EAT

There are loads of options when it comes to eateries. You’ll find restaurants nearly at every corner in the city.

For some fine dining, go to Olive Bar and Kitchen in Khar. It’s slightly expensive but quite good. Highly recommend! If you are in mood for Chinese, then eat at Royal China in Bandra.

Don’t miss Candies. It’s mostly got a student crowd and it’s budget friendly, but the best part is that it has yummy food and the place has such a charm to it.

While you are in the city, don’t forget to try Mumbai’s iconic vada pav, yummy and mouth-watering pani puri at Elco in Hill road. Also try the chicken shawarma at Carter’s blue off carter road. It’s to die for! And finally if you want some tasty cupcakes, le 15 patisserie and love sugar and dough are my personal favs.
