    Genuine Indian market in an old large British time building. Basically food, meat, fruits and vegetables. You need to go there for the ambience, the smells, the show of the shopkeepers.  more »

    A bit quieter then what I imagined it would be. It's going through renovation and a lot of the vendors had very few customers. The lane for vegetables was very squeezed and dirty.  more »

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
