Why not pop into the adjoining shopping center for a spot of hassle free shopping. Ladies should try Gossip for some pretty Swarovski crystal sandals. Gentlemen may wish to get a shirt or two tailored in on of the tailors, but leave enough time!Emma Mark

When to go
It is best to avoid the monsoon months (June to September) while planning a trip to Mumbai. During this time Mumbai becomes a big overflowing pothole. Generally the best time when to go to Mumbai is between October to April. During this time the air remains very pleasant and the relative humidity in the air becomes low. In the months of August and September Mumbai celebrates its biggest festival the Ganesh Chaturthi. This festival is celebrated to honour the Elephant headed God called Ganesha who is a very revered and benign god in the Hindu mythology. The event is worth watching as huge processions carrying massive idols of the divine figures are carried to the sea beaches where they are submerged. The event is a spectacle of true Indian culture that no one should miss.
