Things to do in Bandra
By far the trendiest neighbourhood of Mumbai, Bandra has cemented itself as the place to hang out for all the young, cool, hip and happening people of this eclectic city. Pretty bungalows nod to the old charm of Mumbai while new places to ‘chill’ and ‘hang’ are popping up as an indication of the area’s increasingly gentrified feel. Think coffee shops serving soya lattes and goji berry powered breakfast pots. East London has come to Mumbai in the form of Bandra.
To say that there are plenty of places to visit in Bandra and lots of things to do in Bandra would be a bit of an understatement.
