    26 Ways To Enjoy Mumbai Without Going Broke

    Baby, I don't need Rupee bills to have fun in Mumbai.

    1. Take the BEST bus trip from Colaba to Borivali for only ₹120 if you want a sightseeing overdose, and still not get tired.

    2. Absorb old-world Bombay in and around the Fort area or lounge on the steps of the Asiatic Society Library.

    3. Foodgasms can be availed at numerous Khau Gallis of Mumbai — Ghatkopar, Carter Road, Mahim and more.

    4. Space out on a ferry ride from Gateway of India to Alibaug for as less as ₹50.

    5. Melancholically gaze at the sea while sitting at Bandstand, Carter Road, Marine Drive or Worli Sea Face.

    6. Experience hill station vibes at the Hanging Gardens of Malabar Hill.

    7. Find your inner peace at the forgotten Japanese Cemetery behind the Japanese Temple of Nipponzan Myohoji at Worli Naka.

    8. Wildlife enthusiasts can take a trip to Sanjay Gandhi National Park for a tryst with nature.

    9. Or if you're unable to spot any exotic animals at the national park, an easier re-route would be to the Byculla zoo.

    10. Sway at a little impromptu concert courtesy of the BMC Band performing on weekends at Bandstand or various public parks of Mumbai.


    11. Get your fill of vintage pieces and baubles at Chor Bazaar.

    12. Get pumped on an early morning run on Marine Drive...

    13. Or execute a heritage walk all by yourself. South Bombay will transport you back to the 1930s.

    14. Lose yourself at an incredible qawwali music session at the Haji Ali Dargah.

    15. Chill while watching a game of cricket being played at the Oval Maidan.
