Why do you love Mumbai? Is it the people? Is it your friends? Is it the city life? Or is it something else? Mumbai appears on #13 on the list of 15 best cities worldwide, and that is certainly for a reason. Multiple reasons, in fact. Here are a few.
- Marine Drive
One visit to Marine Drive can soothe your body, soul and mind like never before.
2. Sporting Spirit
Mumbai is, in fact, one of the cities where the sporting spirit and the intense and ardent love for sports never dies. You’ll find people who cheer on forever.
3. Vada Pav
Need I say more? Some Pav with deep-fried potato patty is just what you need, sometimes. It’s the mother of all street-food. *mouth waters*
4. Mumbai locals.
The autodrivers are always ready to take you to your destination without hesitating to switch on the meter. And then there are the local trains that are almost never late. The trains carry 7.2 million passengers everyday.
Mumbai sways to the music with its terrific bars and pubs and nightlife places!
6. Colors and Diversity
The intensity and diversity of the colors can be seen on every nook and corner of Mumbai. Soothing to the eye, indeed.
7. Fashion comes cheap as well.
What if I told you, that you can buy a gorgeous outfit for less than Rs. 300. No, I’m not kidding. Fashion Street, Hill Road, Colaba Causeway, Linking Road, Chor Bazaar – if you want to buy jackets, skirts, pants, bags or anything at a shockingly affordable price, here’s where you ought to go.
8. Mumbaikars have an enormous sweet tooth!
With Theobroma, Oven Fresh, Candies and Indigo, if Mumbai isn’t bliss for all the sugar-rush lovers, I don’t know what is!
9. Sanjay Gandhi National Park
Popular attractions here are the 2,400 years old Kanheri Caves sculpted out of the rocky cliffs, the lion and tiger safari, boating at the lake and the toy train ride. Mumbai is the only city in the world to have a fully functioning national park with freely roaming tigers and other carnivores within city limits.
You’ll have to see them work to know how insanely efficient they are. Always on time at delivering the lunch boxes from the houses of people to their destination.
Yes, Mumbai is an absolute package of sugar, spice and everything nice.
