• Bustling Mumbai brings provoking cultural attractions and savory cuisine

    2011-05-09

    Mumbai, India, is a hodgepodge of activity and traditional values encompassed by a modest and spiritual backbone that may delight tourists with its diversity and charm. Sometimes the crowds can be intimidating, but Mumbaikars are friendly and willing to accommodate through their hearty food and hospitality.

    For an authentic Mumbai experience, travelers may want to journey to the Banganga Tank. Massive traditional buildings surround this holy pool, where locals come to offer alms and socialize with friends and family. According to Frommer's, the source of the green water may be an underground flow of the Ganges River.

    Chowpatty Beach provides a refreshing escape from the busy streets of the main city. Here, tourists and locals relax on sandy beachfronts and shoppers can try their bartering skills with the small vendors that reside along the roads. Wares available include various street snacks such as friend lentil flour noodles and crisp puffed rice with mint chutney.

    Homemade ice cream in flavors such as rose, coconut, and pineapple are favorites at the Swati Snacks eatery, reports Lonely Planet. This Indian staple has been around for years, but recently had a makeover into a new, sleek design.
