Apart from being passionate about travel, I love shopping. Not many of my friends think of me as a shopaholic, but believe me, if I was a billionaire, I would have had a shopping mall of my own. I love shopping anywhere, in the mall and on the streets. Mumbai’s Colaba area is one of the places where I used to hang out with my friends and now with Sarah.
As a travel blogger, I am always fascinated with different places that speak so much about the local culture, food and people. Every village, town, and the city that I have visited has its own trademark style and that is what I carry back home and try to write it down before it begins to fade out of my memory. I am a part of a closed group of bloggers, writers, poets and creative minds and during our last conversation, we came up with a thought of rewriting one of our old posts that we think we can improve. For me, that is practically impossible, because most of my posts never go public if I am not satisfied. So, I decided that I would come up with a new post (well, I write a lot less than most people in my blog group) where I can ponder on a new topic.
So, here I am writing about things to do and places to visit when you are in Mumbai on a short business trip or if you are just here for few days or just a day at a stretch. Honestly, this sounds like an easy essay topic, but trust me it is not. I mean, look at the map of Mumbai, the city is expanding faster than you can imagine. All the places that once used to be the far north of the city have now become the central locations. On Zomato, there are more than 10,313 restaurants registered across the city, on TripAdvisor there are 207 attractions to visit, and 158 places to shop around, so where do you start?
