No one should miss the Gateway of India when in Mumbai or it would have been like you haven't visited at all! Stunning views of the Mumbai Habour with plenty of people watching. It is a favourite gathering spot for locals and is exceptionally crowded everyday of the week. There are plenty of touts, beggars, "professional" photographers, giant balloon sellers that make up this atmospheric spot and your bounded to be stared by almost everyone. The Gateway of India is conveniently situated right in front of the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower which is undoubtedly the most famous hotel in the city. There are also horse drawn carriage rides along the harbour area which is best appreciated at night when the buildings are illuminated. Didn't personally try it as I know I would have been ripped off so bargain hard if you are thinking of it.
