thanks fr ur wonderful advice Smile...i'm planning on going either at the end of this year or maybe by next year....my bf lives in Mumbai but i'm not positively sure if he's gonna pick me up because he's not saying anything so that's why i'm a bit too worried. My bf wants our wedding to start A.S.A.P. LOL
 
Best of luck to your trip to India in 2010...wish you all the best Smile

yea same here, i'm also surprised that he's not saying anything and I don't know for sure if he's going to or not but I think I should talk to him more about it and i will.....i know, that's what I'm thinking as well - for him to pick me up....that's what i'm planning to do - plan everything with my bf.....I just wanted to get a little bit of background on Mumbai for my own knowledge just in case....i always like to know everything beforehand.....he usually has surprises planned for me, he's usually quiet and works on his surprises for me....since he didn't say anything, that's why I got worried and asked for an advice here.....I think he might pick me up because whenever I talked about working in the same company as he is, he gets really excited.
 
ok I won't go in December than.....I think you're probably excited for me because it's going to be my first trip to India and maybe it's because I'm going to visit India.

december is the best tym or march april coz its not boiling hot then so yh if u go in dec it will be chritmas so will be much more fun cozz of celebrations nd everyfin
u will luv it its just gr8 the trafic if the problem but dont go on buses or trains coz they r way crowded u wont be able to get out so avoid them lol
if u wanna go shopping so to malad the shopping mall is called inorbit its huge i think 1 of the biggest in asia
nd if not there there andheri west is gd place lots of shopping malls in straight lines nd cinemas in every shopping mall its gr8
there is a cinema called red lounge only 2/3 in mumbai coz they r lyk reallii cool they have recliner seats instead of normal 1's nd not that expensive either

You will enjoy Mumbai, I have been there for !0 days a couple of weeks ago. Everything great, The airport is so horrible and people very unhelpful. Secondly the traffic is Horrendous, Donot ask anyone any directions, there will be 10 people around you but wont get any help. Be careful with beggars and hawkers will make your life a hell. otherwise welcome to india.
