5 Things To Do During Mumbai Monsoons

July 14, 2017 - 2 minutes read

Mumbai is such a busy and happening city. But all that seems to go away once the monsoons come in, making the city look so everlastingly beautiful and the skyline touching the clouds become visible. It is the longest season of the year and there’s so much you can do when the monsoons hit. Even though it may sound kinda cliche, here are a few things you can do during the Mumbai monsoons:

Cutting Chai 

There’s no better feeling than having cutting chai and a conversation with your family or friends while enjoying the rains and the cool breeze that accompanies it. It’s as calming as it gets.


Street Food

Street vendors have the best business during this time of the year. Everybody loves having those garam vada pavs, bhajiyas, pakoras or even a plate of bhel, while the rain pours down.



If you’re ever looking for a place to go to during the monsoons, a hill station is your answer. Monsoon is the best time to go for a road trip with your best buds and places like Lonavala look absolutely serene in this weather. It serves as your much needed break.


Visit a cafe

Cafes turn into the coziest places you can chill at, besides under your blanket at home. Grabbing a hot chocolate with some marshmallows and reading a book while it rains in the backdrop – makes you feel like you’re in a movie. 

Long drives

If you’re not looking for anything in particular and just wanna enjoy the spontaneous beauty of the rains, catch a kaali peeli taxi and set out to take a drive around the city. And besides, this is such a nice way to watch the monsoons work its magic.
