When here, whether for tourism or any other purpose; do not forget to taste the spicy, but delicious, street food. This includes food items like pav bhaji, bhel puri, sev puri, pani puri, vada pav, etc. Bombay is a shopper's delight, with its large number of shopping markets and shopping malls. Even the beaches situated there are definitely worth a visit. Traditional yet modern, fast paced yet dreamy - this is Mumbai for you!
