Mumbai and monsoon is a match made in heaven. There’s something in the way, how Mumbai transforms itself when the rain gods arrive. The monsoons in Mumbai are summed up by gloomy clouds, fried delicacies, the smell of the earth and the pleasant weather. If you don’t mind getting drenched in the rain and can brave some puddles on your way, then head to Marine drive to discover a new side of the city during rains. Therefore, after the first shower itself, you should take a leisurely walk at Marine drive watching the Arabian Sea in its ferocious form along with a spicy corn cob.

Take a special ferry ride about the Gateway of India with light rain to go with you, or read a book in an old-world café corner snooping to the downpour. For those who might just stay away from the muck and rains, there are diverse art galleries, theatre performances, and cafes to visit that showcase brilliant fine arts. NCPA and the Royal Opera House are must-visit to witness the sheer brilliance of drama and other forms of art. The Irish coffee at Prithvi Café is a must have monsoon beverage. A morning stroll at Kanheri caves or Aarey forest is something soothing to the eyes, as these places will be scintillating with all the lush green foliage.
