But we were very careful everywhere we went in India as we've heard a lot about various types of scams including overpricing, theft, touts, commission agent, transport scams....... our motto in India was safety first!
So here are some things we did in order to avoid problems.

For one thing, the traffic was not as crazy as other big cities, so we were able to rent a motorbike and drove around. Fun!
A lot more foreigners here than any other places we've visited in India, a lot of Russians.
The water was not as clear as some other beach we've been to but good enough! It was just so nice to get away from all the honking of the cars / rickshaws and relax by the beach.

Explored the city of Mumbai: visited Dharavi Slum - supposedly one of the city's largest slums. Then drove a few km south to Altamount Road - one of the most expensive streets in the world. Took some pictures of Antilia - a 27 story personal residential complex of Mukesh Ambani (the chairman of Reliance industries limited). Apparently, it is the most expensive home in the world, employing over 600 staff to maintain the residence.....crazy!
Tried Japanese restaurant called 'Kofuku' in Mumbai. Very colorful fusion 'sushi'... (photo below)
Did a little Lonely planet-guided walk tour around Gateway of India...and a visit to Mani Bhavan - Mahatma Gandhi's museum. Interesting.
