You may be wondering what one can possibly say that hasn’t been said of Mumbai city before, right? Practically nothing only that there are some knick knacks that only an insider can reveal to you. Do you want to get the revelation? Here are the 5 interesting Mumbai tips.
Application of Murphy’s Law
You should always understand that it may rain when you don’t carry your umbrella. You may think that this is a normal nature thing all over the world but specifically in Mumbai the Murphy’s Law tends to play a major part. Wait for the June/July season; you must stack an affordable umbrella in your bag. Never undermine clouds when in Mumbai, even when there is an extreme sun, it can end up in a scaring thunderstorm.
Have a Backup of Your clothes and Personal Toiletries Everywhere
You probably want to believe that this applies only for monsoon, but no. Ask any mumbaikar and they will tell you how one become prepared for anything that may happen anytime. You never know when flash flood, a bandh, a strike, bomb blast, train breakdown, a religious procession…add anything on the list can happen. For your safety, it is advisable that you keep extra set of clothes at the office or where there’s a close living relative-a backup plan is always crucial.
The Greatest Shopping Adventure
Globally the best shopping happens in malls but in Mumbai it doesn’t. If you were planning to visit Mumbai for a Prada or Gucci search you are making the worst decision. Local markets such as Coloba Causeway, Chor Bazaar, Bhendi Baazar, Dadar Market, Crawford Market and so on become the best exploration. In Coloba precinct, you can get some of the best and amazing boutiques, of course if you are willing to spend some extra pennies. There is a priceless value for the great steals and bargains in these local markets.
Offer Late Night Return Fare
For those who often find themselves going back home later at midnight, this is the best trick for you. After you get off the train and discovering that not even a single taxi or an auto would wish to have you, regardless of the short distance as their customer, tell them that you are doubling the amount of the meter. This is called the return fare in local language. With that in mind they will be rolling. It is good to keep in mind that no matter what it costs your safety is more important.
A Ticket of Rs 20 Works Wonders For You
It doesn’t matter whether you are traveling within the city or sightseeing, in Mumbai, spending hundreds of rupees on autos and cabs isn’t a good idea at a time like this (unless the bill is paid by the company of course) surprising thing is that most people have not yet known the factor power of 20 rupees. With a bus ticket worth 20 rupees purchased at a go you can comfortably take any bus across the city without necessarily getting separate tickets each time for the bus. Does that sound great way for Mumbai exploration?
