Must Do

Eating and shopping in Colaba

Visit Café Mondegar and Café Leopold at Colaba Causeway. They serve great food and drinks, and in the evenings often have great music as well. Another must-visit is Theobroma Patiserrie which makes mouth-watering desserts. Their brownies just melt in your mouth. For those who love chinese food, there is 5 Spice in the Fort area, just opposite the old Reserve Bank of India building. You can also spend time shopping in Colaba - street vendors sell incredible jewellery, funky knick-knacks, cheap clothes and shoes. The public transport system in Mumbai is very good (though overcrowded) so you should have no problem getting to places.

Tips for Travellers

For those coming from outside the city, it would be a good idea to arrive in Mumbai at least a day before the game. Look for a suitable accommodation in the western suburbs for moderate pricing. If you are in the western suburbs, you could get to the stadium either in a cab or better still by local train. If travelling by train, get down at Churchgate and walk down to the stadium in less than 10 minutes. If you pick a central Mumbai hotel, drive down in a taxi. It should take not more than 30 minutes. Plan to be there well in advance, at least three hours before the start of the game, to avoid any disappointment, provided you have a confirmed ticket. Entry into the stadium could take as long as an hour or two depending on the stand you have chosen.
