MumbaiIts crazy there. Totally different from anywhere else. The ultra rich and super poor are there.
It was super crowded and hot. Shopping in the little shops and stands wasn't really cool even though there were some cool things because you have to haggle a long time to get the right price. If you don't they will rip you off.
Cabs were decent. If you haggle, you can get a full city tour for $50. Food wasn't cheap either. I don't know how people live with prices like that. There's also a lot of tax.
There are some cool buildings from the British times but you see more dilapidated buildings and unfinished buildings because of shady business.
I so wanted to like it but it was intense. Maybe if I knew a local, it would be better. Idk its dirty and it is so hard to find trash cans.
I stayed for a week and I still have mixed feelings about it.
