Assumptions

You would be required to have some cash to cover these places in time and also to have a good travel experience. The best mode of travel would be a taxi or a private car. Also, we assume that you are staying at a place near to South Bombay aka SoBo or atleast near to Mumbai Airport .

Items to Carry

We suggest that you plan to carry some important things so as to provide yourself with a smooth and hassle free journey. A bottle of mineral water, atleast 3k-4k cash in Indian Currency, a pre-booked cab, some biscuits, a bandage (or a first aid kit), sunglasses(optional as the sun comes out quite well), some empty carry bags(for any shopping) and a good camera(to capture some priceless moments and views).

Travel Advisories

People in the city are generally warm and helpful. Moderate Interaction with the locals should be fine. Pay on meter while travelling in taxis(if not pre-hired) and do proper bargaining in case of any purchase from roadside shops. Foreign Female travelers are advised to dress appropriately, probably an Indian Attire( a Salwar or a Saree). Foreign Travelers might experience some stares, which is very normal in the city and is not a threat or point of concern. Although the city never sleeps and is relatively safe at any time, travelers should not stay out beyond 10pm in the night. Do not wear any costly ornaments.

Mode of Communication

The people here use hindi as the first langauge. However, most of the people also understand English quite well.
