As the ICC World Cup 2023 is underway in India, all the matches throughout the tournament will take place through the length and breadth of the country in 10 Indian cities: Ahmedabad, Pune, Dharamsala, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Mumbai.

The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai

Given the craze and love that people have for cricket across the globe, it is for sure that these cities will attract a lot of tourists during the tournament.

Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium will host five matches, including the first semi-final on November 15.

If you plan to visit Mumbai for any or all of the five matches, here’s a guide for sightseeing, dining, and other activities in the city.

Must-visit Attractions

Gateway of India: Situated beside the iconic Taj Mahal Palace with a stunning view of the vast Arabian Sea, the Gateway of India will leave you spellbound in every aspect. Enjoy a ferry ride for a breath-taking sea view of this monument and explore other nearby attractions.

The iconic Gateway of India

Elephanta Caves: Take a tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and be amazed by the colossal rock-cut caves with a history spanning centuries. Housing five caves dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva and two caves showcasing Buddhist architectures, it’s a testament to the rich cultural and religious heritage.

Siddhivinayak Temple: The Siddhivinayak Temple is devoted to Lord Ganesh. People from all corners of India, including notable figures from Bollywood and sports, gather at the temple to seek the blessings of Ganapati Bappa.

Must-try Foods

Mumbai’s culinary landscape reflects its cultural diversity through a variety of street food influenced by Muslim, Gujarati, South Indian, Parsi, and Maharashtrian flavours. Here are some must-try delicacies in Mumbai.

Vada Pav: Vada Pav, often referred to as the Poor Man’s Burger consists of a bun (pav) enclosing a potato fritter (vada). Accompanied by spicy and sweet chutneys, fried chillies, and garlic powder chutney, it’s a flavourful delight.

Pav Bhaji: Another loved street food in Bombay is Pav Bhaji. A medley of mashed vegetables, cooked with an array of spices and seasonings (bhaji), is paired with bun bread (pav) warmed on a pan. Butter is generously applied to the bun. If you find yourself hungry while wandering the streets of Mumbai at night, you’re likely to encounter at least one Pav Bhaji stall open late, offering a satisfying solution to your late-night cravings.

Frankie(Stuffed Rolls): Frankie, a famous Mumbai street food, is a flavourful delight. This juicy naan bread, coated with egg for the non-vegetarian version, is rolled with a filling of mutton or chicken. For the vegetarian variant, egg coating is omitted, and the stuffing features paneer or potatoes.

Kheema Pav: If you haven’t tasted Kheema Pav in Mumbai, have you truly experienced the city? A Parsi speciality, it’s a must-try for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For non-vegetarians, indulge in the delight of pav filled with minced mutton in a flavourful tomato gravy — so delicious that you’ll be wiping the plate clean.
