1. While travelling around Mumbai use a taxi or a rickshaw. Donot use local trains or buses as they are over crowded and pick pocketing is practised.
2. Donot drink tap water as it is a breeding ground for viruses. Mineral water is available throughout mumbai. ( Best mineral water manufacturers are Bisleri, Bailley, Aquafena, Kinley and Himalaya.)
3. Many people will offer you garlands if u are a Westerner. Avoid these garlands as the flowers may contain some powder which may disturb your respiratory system.
4. For guidance, ask only educated people and not uneducated people as they may fool you.
5. Remember, when paying rickshaw fare, always subtract one from the original meter reading and add three in taxi meter reading.
6. The BEST municipal buses although cheap is not BEST when crowded. Don't use them or in the end u may find yourself in a quarrel.
7. If u want to enjoy Mumbai transportation use the BEST municipal buses' AIRCONDITIONED bus as it is cheap and comfortable.
