For a taste of what Mumbai culture really is, it is easily discoverable at the Colaba Causeway. The look and mood are reflective of its cosmopolitan feel; a classic example of the clichéd `East meets West' — or rather Mumbai-meets-Bombay. The skyline is dominated by charming buildings like the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), Regal Cinema and Khushrow Baug, and the colorful products of the different vendors will excite you- jewelery and scarves are abundant throughout.

The stalls are even more attractive because of their inexpensive prices and the opportunity to bargain with the dealers. You'll find the latest in fashion trinkets and accessories for about1/3 cheaper than in the mainstream stores. Several stalls are dedicated just to handbags- with intricate designs, rare patterns, and the most gorgeous color schemes. There also pieces of art, antiques, and hookahs for sale.

Shop for: Jewelry, handbags, antiques

Cafe Stop: Café Leopold

Get here: Bus #3, #11, #47, #103, #123, or #125
