The rains are to Mumbai what kebabs are to Lucknow, winters , winters to Delhi, and allow me to generalise, but Rajinikanth for Tamil Nadu.You can’t take rains away from a dreamy scene of Mumbai or its life.Just as the drizzle soaks your clothes, the city drenches in your dreams to make it hers. Allow it!!
Mumbai’s notable landmarks and skyline — Gateway of India, Marine Drive/Chowpatty Beach, Mumbai University, the High Court, Victoria Terminus, Siddhivinayak Temple, and Haji Ali — are less than ideal. If you haven’t already, gift yourself some rainwear. I say rainwear and not umbrella because from rain-durable footwear to waterproof bag, you’ll need it all. Rains are not a weather condition for Mumbaikars, it is but an emotion you’ll start identifying with after a long sit-up at Marine Drive watching overcast skies approach the city. That first sight of approaching clouds, the feel of the first rain on your face and relief from the heat on others’ will be etched in your memory.
While there are innumerable places to visit, restaurants like Bayview Cafe in Colaba are a must visit during the monsoon in Mumbai. Overlooking the harbour and the Gateway of India, the cafe lets you enjoy the scenic beauty of the city while you gulp down delectable food.Be it a visit with your friends, family, or your spouse, this is the perfect place to listen to the whispers of the rain.Thinking about the best places to visit near Mumbai in monsoon? The answer is Lonavla. The monsoon season is undoubtedly the best time to go on a romantic drive with your special someone or a road trip with your best buds. Drive through the Navi Mumbai route to witness the breathtaking beauty of nature, and chill at the Lion’s Point to experience some thrill.
If you’re someone who feels like experiencing all of the above at once, get into a kaali-peeli taxi, and roam around the city. This is a fun way to explore and witness the charm of the city, especially when it pours. Keep your camera ready, and capture the mesmerizing beauty not just with your eyes, but also with the lens. Or look out from the window and let the raindrops embrace you!If you are in the mood to tantalize your taste buds, find your excuse to ditch that diet, and walk through some of the best food galis in the country – fellow foodie, you are at the right place!
Let us know if you have any better plans this monsoon season.
