"Carpet bargaining. Even if..." MISCELLANEOUS Tip by Pierre_Rouss

MISCELLANEOUS, Mumbai: 27 reviews and 23 photos

Favorite thing: Carpet bargaining. Even if you don't want a carpet, you might leave with one anyway, otherwise the salesman might cry. Take your time even if you see less things.<BR>
Little plug for Jamal Carpet (suggested by my driver, he assured me they were not related ;-) )<BR>

I manage not to buy a carpet, but left with Pracmina scarves and cachemire sweater.

Fondest memory: The food... it was great and varied. Do watch for what you eat, but you are often better off with indian food than occidental food cooked by an indian cook.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
