I sometimes have a lot of friends come in to Mumbai for a day or two and they are usually at a loss when it comes to planning that one day they have to get a feel for the city. This guide is for those people who don't mind a quick cuppa in one place to soak in the ambiance; leave for the next place for some street shopping for a bit; move somewhere else to have a tikka roll at a third place! If you have a day in the city I love, you might as well enjoy it right? :)

Jensom's City Tips

  • Autorickshaws are fun and not very expensive but they only work in the suburbs. when in South Mumbai or 'Town', its best to take a cab.
  • You dont need to tip at most places as they have a 10% service charge. If you don't see this on the bill, its okay to round up but not necessary.
  • Mad Over Donuts

    The ambiance here is great.. you wouldn't think you're in the middle of the city. They have some great sitting areas more reminiscent of a villa in the Mediterranean than Mumbai! They sometimes also have great little stalls with ethnic trinkets from random places like Australia or Rajasthan!
