The culinary world of India is at its best in Mumbai. With street food that makes your mouth water and fine dining that rivals that of anywhere else in the world, Mumbai is a legitimate food lover's paradise.
Head to the famous Chowpatty Beach for a whistle-stop tour of the best Indian food Mumbai has to offer. You'll find freshly cut coconuts, mango kulfi (ice cream), rich pakoras and curries you'll want to write home about. This busy beach is packed with happy locals and tourists enjoying the sand, sea, tastes and aromas.
Many of the locals try and stay out of the sun as much as possible so if you want to experience the beach when it's quiet head down during the day with plenty of sunscreen. As sunset approaches, the beach gets quite busy with the local crowds enjoying the cooler weather.
Mumbai's nightlife is the best in India. With trendy bars popping up all over the city, the social scene is not to be missed. Dress in your finest to ensure entry into the high end clubs. Party alongside Bollywood stars, try spicy cocktails and do what the Indian's do best and dance the night away.
