Why is Mumbai the Best Place to Visit During the Monsoon

June 20, 2016 4:00 PM |

After months of sweltering heat and humidity, monsoon is quite a refreshing change. Mumbai during the Southwest Monsoon season seems like a fairytale. Whether you go out for a mere stroll or are in a mood for a long drive, Mumbai is the most welcoming city in the entire country when it rains.

If you haven’t walked down the very famous Marine Drive during Monsoon, you haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying the rain in the real sense. Join the enthusiastic crowd enjoying the rain at the promenade, sit back and see how mighty the Arabian Sea is. Make sure you are present there during a high tide. Enjoy that splash of water on you.

Visit the Gateway of India to enjoy the rain at its best, enjoy those toothsome snacks from street vendors. Make sure you do try out the bhutta and the roadside cutting chai. If you feel like driving, a drive down the Bandra Worli sea link will surely make your day. If you want to be at a peaceful place, sit on the Worli Sea Face promenade instead, and take pictures of those ferocious waves.

Rain and some beach fun go hand in hand. Drive down to the one and only Juhu beach, enjoy some Vada Pav and Batata Vada. Try out the many flavours of that mouthwatering gola. Haven’t tasted the Bhel Puri or the Sev Puri yet? You are surely missing out on something really amazing.

Want to do some celeb spotting? Go ahead and visit the Bandstand promenade. You may get lucky and see your beloved Sallu Bhai enjoying the different flavours of Monsoon. Feel like having a cup of coffee? Barista is just across the road.

If you haven’t enjoyed Monsoon in Mumbai, you are really missing out on something fun. Pay the concrete jungle a visit during Monsoon and you will not be disappointed.
