Mumbai or “Amchi Mumbai” as we lovingly call it is a truly amazing place. The bustling city is always full of life and energy. The more time you spend here the more you grow to love it. If you are new to Mumbai, you will soon know what we are talking about and if you are a true blue Mumbaikar then you know exactly what we mean. But regardless if you are in Mumbai this weekend and are wondering what to do, then we have the coolest list of things to do in Mumbai just for you. So go grab your bestie and take her around the city that never sleeps!
1. Go break a world record!
Come join us for a super fun Sunday! As a part of the DO YOU movement PUMA is organising an event that is exclusively for women and attempts to break the Guinness World Record of the “Most people to hold the abdominal plank position” for 60 seconds. Celebs like Jacqueline Fernandez, Kalki Koechlin, Sakshi Malik, Ujjwala Raut, Nidhi Mohan Kamal and Sucheta Pal will all be there, planking to break the world record. The event is being hosted by RJ Malishka and Shibani Dandekar with music by DJ Megha Kawale. There will even be food trucks with yummy goodies, so the event promises to be loads of fun. Be a part of the movement, test your core strength and get your name written in the record books. Head on over to JIO Garden in Mumbai on the 6th of November. Let’s get planking ladies!

2. Bombay Dreams
The city of dreams is the hub of all things Bollywood. No, we aren’t suggesting you go try your hand at acting (although if you can, why not!), but it's always fun to stalk your favourite celebs, isn’t it? Mumbai is home to the biggest stars in Bollywood, so head on over to SRK’s house Mannat in Bandstand or Big B’s house Jalsa in Juhu. Who knows? You might just get lucky and spot them!
3. Main toh raste se jaa raha tha
If this song has you craving bhelpuri, then Mumbai’s street food walas are your best bet. Be it pav bhaji, missal pav or vada pav this city has you covered. Places like Khau Galli on Chowpati have food that you will never forget. So go binge on delicious chaat and make sure you don’t miss out on anything. Because food will never disappoint you buddy!
4. Travel like the locals...
If you want to experience the real Mumbai then travel in a local train and see what it feels like to be a true Mumbaikar. At peak times it’s absolutely crazy but try taking a ride at night - it’s amazing. Enjoy the breeze and watch the city zip by. It’s probably the fastest way to see the whole city.
5. Walk by the sea
Who wouldn’t want a quiet evening by the sea. You could choose to walk down the promenade and let the sound of the waves calm you down. Or sit back with someone who enjoys the moonlight as much as you do. So what are you waiting for girls, grab your besties and head on over to Bandstand or Carter Road and enjoy the serenity!
6. Flee away!
No we are not asking you to run away, Bollywood style! But Mumbai’s flee markets are great. It’s the perfect place to get all your knick-knacks at the best prices. Places like Colaba Causeway, Hill Road, Fashion Street and Linking Road have everything from bags, shoes, clothes and our favourite junk jewellery. Everything you need - you will find here. Love cheap thrills? Then this is the place for you!
7. A short road trip with your besties!
If you love to travel and are fond of exotic locations then places like Khandala, Lonavala and Alibag are meant for you. Jump in a car, play some amazing music and get set to have an absolute ball with your friends. Because as much as we love Mumbai, a break from the hustle and bustle of the city is always welcome, isn’t it?
8. Soak in some culture…
Mumbai has a lot of places to hang out but if you are the kind who likes visiting museums and galleries or catching a play once in a while then this city has some amazing places that you can check out. Prithvi Theatre is iconic and museums like Prince of Wales Museum, National Gallery of Modern Art are a must visit.
