One of the most crowded and electrifying places to visit in Mumbai is the Colaba Causeway, famous for being the shopping paradise and having endless shops to choose from. The city of a million hopes, dreams and aspirations, Mumbai has its heart in the right place despite all the floods and terrors and everything that has shaken it over the years.
Winning over everything else, the Mumbai-spirit has remained undefeatable. And at the heart of the unabashed city is the bustling Colaba Causeway - an absolute must-visit. The place is mainly famous for its abundance of shopping opportunities. Lying at the western tip, Colaba Causeway feels like the pulse of Mumbai, quivering with excitement. It has a charm about it, which will suck you into its world of colourful shops, eating places and boutiques like a magnet.
Known as Shahid Bhagat Singh Road formally and officially, Colaba Causeway acts as the land link between Colaba and the Old Woman's Island. It lies close to the Fort area which is a business sector and the heart of the city since the British era. From roadside vendors to glamorous boutiques, the street sells everything you can think of buying – in different quality and prices. If movies are your thing and you want to experience how it was to watch them in halls before multiplexes took over, you can pay a visit to the old movie theatre – Regal Cinema. Behind Regal Cinema, the Causeway leads you to the Bandstand Promenade overlooking the Arabian Sea.
Here, the great Gate of India welcomes you with all its grandeur across from the majestic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel dominating the city's skyline. If the walk makes you starve for something mouthwatering, you will find the same at the many restaurants – old and new, cafes and franchisee eatery outlets around to pacify your hunger.
