Tips

1. Bombay beaches are not the kind you can wear swimsuits to, particularly two-pieces.
2. Haggling is accepted as a form of trading with sellers.
3. Several massage palours located near to the beach are fake and are illicit sex palours.
4. Cheap and tasty food stalls are concentrated around the city's colleges
5. Littering is punishable with a INR 200 fine throughout Mumbai as part of the Clean-Up Mumbai initiative by the BMC.
5. Do not display 500 and 1000 rupee notes in public.
6. Keep your money and credit cards safe at all times. Always carry some cash as many places won't take cards.
7. Beware of pickpockets on buses and trains.
8. Women traveling by train, especially on off-peak routes should travel in the second class where at least a few co-passengers are also found.
9. Western women tourists should note that if they visit a disco or pub in Mumbai or India, don't take lifts or even get too friendly with strangers.
10. Don't ever let an auto or taxi you are traveling in pick up any more people, or pull over before your final destination.
11. Police can sometimes be almost as shady as criminals in Mumbai. At night, women should ensure if they are ever stopped by police, there needs to be a female police officer present or they are well within their rights in demanding the presence of a woman cop.
Be aware of Scams.
12. Be careful with what you eat.
13. Haggling is accepted as a form of trading with sellers.
