Under $100 / Asia

One of the biggest perks of travel in India is the relatively low cost of food and activities for travelers. With one day in Mumbai, you can eat exotically for $100.

 

Let’s start with some iconic sites you can see for free. If you’re up and about for sunrise (which you might be due to jet lag) the Gateway of India is a beautiful site to see with the rising sun behind it. Old-fashioned boats line the harbor behind the gate and make for a wonderful photo opportunity.

 

A good second stop in the early morning hours is the open-air laundry neighborhood, where you can wander through the narrow streets and see the largest traditional “laundromat” in India. The piles of colorful saris and clothing are hand-washed under the open sky.

 

If you’re feeling brave enough to try some street food and take your chances with Dehli belly, try some chai tea from a local vendor for around $2. The chai is made with condensed milk and will come extremely hot, so prepare your taste buds to be simultaneously burned and pleased.

 

If you’re in the mood for more sightseeing, visiting the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station is worth a few minutes of your time. The ornate Victorian railway is a UNESCO World HeritagesSite and the interior is just as beautiful as the exterior.

 

For dinner, spend your food budget for the day at The Bombay Canteen. While pricier than most restaurants, the restaurant serves up a Michelin-worthy tasting menu of Indian dishes in a lively and light atmosphere. You’ll get to taste traditional flavors from the old city as well as sampling new takes on the classics.
