Walk on Marine Drive
Take an evening walk down the 4km promenade on Marine Drive. It's a great chance for people-watching, enjoying the cool breeze, eating roasted peanuts bought from a street vendor (if you dare!) and watching the sun set. Avoid this on a weekend, though, unless you want to be in a sea of people.
Tips for Travellers
Travellers to Mumbai must visit Chowpatty. It's just 2km from the Wankhede stadium, which is holding the final of the World Cup. Chowpatty is a beach and the food there is amazing - Indian snacks like bhel puri, pani puri, sev puri, pav bhaji, cold drinks like kala khatta, orange, and not to forget golas (crushed ice lollies). And for digestion the traditional Indian paan (betel) leaf.
