Mumbai has been rightly called as 'The city that never sleeps'. It is my favourite place to be at and trust me, there?s no exaggeration here. Mumbai has a charm of its own. The beaches, marine drive, sprawling malls and the beautiful Taj are a delight to look at. Being someone who loves to shop, Colaba causeway and fashion street are my top to go places, because of course they are very much similar to Delhi's Janpath and Sarojini Nagar market. The newly opened five storeyed Zara is a must visit for all the shoppers as it's the biggest in the country and well, has the best collection. Gateway of India looks much better in real life than it does in photographs so must give it a visit, get clicked with it or maybe take a ferry ride with your friends and family! The city is always on the go and the local trains are flooded with people at all times. Travelling in a local has its own experience, though it was tiring but I loved it! If you love yummy street food and do not care about the calories, then Mumbai has a lot to offer! Vada pao, pav bhaji, missal pao, bhelpuri, colourful chuski- you name it and you get it all easily on the streets. You can never be disappointed with the food that this city has to offer. My favourite places to dine at in Mumbai includes 'Pizza by the bay' and McCafé because yummy food and an amazing view is all you need in life! I loved visiting Siddhi Vinayak temple and the famous Haji Ali Dargah and trust me, these two places are full of the ever-required peace that we need in our busy lives. Juhu beach, though not in a great condition acts as a great tourist place where you can enjoy the water sports or just sit back and see the sun set! Mumbai can be easily visited by a train, flight or by a car drive but flight is the most convenient option as it saves time and energy. You can roam around in the metros or locals and cabs are well connected too. The place being near the sea is quite humid and you should ideally visit it in the later months of the year. Mumbai has always impressed me with its charm and nothing matches the feeling of having a hot cup of coffee or just a good company in the night while you relax at the marine drive. You can spot several people as well as celebrities working out and cycling on the streets and at the Nariman point. Watching DDLJ at Maratha Mandir should be on your 'must-do' list because who doesn't love Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan?!
