Here’s how to enjoy Mumbai for…
Take a boat ride to the Elephanta Caves from the jetty near the Gateway of India. The rock-cut temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is a UNESCO world heritage monument. Spend time feeding the pigeons at the Gateway on your way in.
Stretch your muscles with a yoga class at the Yoga House in Bandra – choose from Hatha or Vinyasa styles at a time of your choice (US$10 for a 75-minute session). Follow up with a healthy meal at the cafe.
Get the adrenalin going with a paragliding class at the Western suburb of Virar, or a quick sailing lesson (www.bluebulb.in/Sailing.html) off the Gateway of India, with views of the South Mumbai skyline.
Pick up something special for the house at the Good Earth store at Raghuvanshi Mills – like the classic Nishaat tea set or a Serendib lantern in antique silver. End the shopping expedition with a meal – try the seared fillet of basa and save space for the cheesecake – at The Tasting Room cafe upstairs.
