Bombay attacks newcomers with a mix of colours, smells, sounds and perpetual movement. Throughout its history it has been a city of opportunity and hustle. People come here to become a Bollywood star, work their way up to fabulous wealth or just have fun and enjoy the atmosphere.
Naturally, shopping is a popular pass time among the city dwellers. The Colaba markets draw the crowds with an eclectic offering of quite literally anything in the world: fashion, furniture, books, jewellery and even car parts are available right here next to each other.
After shopping to their heart’s content, people head to the ocean’s shore to sip a glass of Sula wine and watch the boats enter and leave the port of this ever great merchant outpost.
