Hi, friends! What interesting places there are in Mumbai to make purcahes? What is it better to buy there? Something special/traditional/unusual. It can be both - cheap and expensive options.

I have a little bit weird question, but this is important for me.
I do some reaserches in my univerisity. Are there any gardeners, architects or other people who could tell me something about how gardens, parks looks in your country?
Maybe you know some books? (In English or Spanish)
What plants do you have? Are there some styles? Some important parts?
It will really helps me :*

LOL LOL LOL.
Satish, She asked Gardeners, not Gardens.
Kamilla, I think the best answer can be given by a Gardener or an Architect. Unfortunately, I don't know of any. And I doubt Satish's answer did any good to you either.
Kamilla Rachwał , Alicante, ESP, 2 months ago
yea, but thank you for tips :) that also helped me :)
If you can add something more, I´ll be grateful :) Some typical plants?
Are that gardens which you wrote, Satish are rather typical or they are something different in your country?
Maybe example will be easier:
-Japanese gardens are with stones, sand, lots of water. Plants typical for Japan: weigela, Acer, cedar, moss
-Italian gardens are geometrical, streight lines, fountain in the centre,plants: buxus
-In Spain there are famous Cordoba patios- with flowers on the wall :)
Do you have some specific also? :)

Could you describe what exactly you are looking for ?
I usually buy from a chap in Mumbai who has quite a lot of inventories for outdoor
Nandu chavhan : http://www.mtsportsacademy.com/
Give him a call and he is really friendly and helpful.
Other than this, there are :
Thane: Decathlon Stores
Avi Industries, Matunga
Shop @ R citi mall [top floor]
Sandeep Kamal , Mumbai, IND, 2 months ago
Www.decathlon.in is your best option. It's in Decathlon Thane, Big Shopping Center, Ghodbunder Road, Kasarvadawali Gaon, Thane - 400615,
Then next uption is Wildcraft store in Bandra link road end, or inorbit mall in malad.
Both are meant for outdoor adventure gears.

If you are really planning to travel throughout India on a bike, I would suggest you go in for a bullet. They are the rough and tough ones and also have a good resale value (one you are done with your trip, you can sell them off easily).

I used India Bikes in Mumbai(Andy who runs it is quite helpful).Their site is :http://www.indiabikes.com/autorentN1/firstformn.jsp
Another one is :http://www.enfieldriders.com/bike-rental-mumbai-india
In Delhi,the Central Delhi area of Karol Bagh,Jhandewalan Estate has several establishments who rent these machines out with proper paperwork and support.
There's this video if it helps you choose on Enfields from Delhi:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-JwZfLKX1U

There are so many great motorcycles to be had for a $1000, however these will be between 125-150cc and designed for the city commuter. However they tend to be pretty well made, require little to no service and should something go wrong on the road. Most can be fixed at any mechanic: anywhere in the country.
For a little more money, a decent used ktm 200/390 or a similar bajaj 200/400. Again similar characteristics to the others but with the added benefits of better performance and horsepower.
Most people highly recommend the enfield for touring but in my personal view, I find them to be dated, cumbersome and notoriously unreliable. However, these are the bikes you most often see in the most hostile terrains all over this great country. So i could almost certainly be wrong.
You can start looking for a motorcycle online by checking out the two largest classified pages in india.
Hope this helps.

Hi everyone! I have a friend visiting me and he wants to go on an elephant ride - i believe its not legal anymore in Mumbai but can anyone suggest a place close to Mumbai?
Asavari Gill , Mumbai, IND, 2 months ago
God! This is not even authentic Mumbai/Indian stuff! I mean, who rides elephants here? He might get lucky in Kerala though!
AK09 , Mumbai, IND, 2 months ago
Hi thanks ! We did that at Corbett Park. Growing up 25 years ago iN Delhi, i went on plenty of elephant rides in the city. Bear and monkey shows in our house gardens ocassionally during the evenings . Indian cities have changed since then but thank you all for the comments
