Marine Drive :
If you're feeling energetic, a stroll down Marine Drive
is possibly the best way to discover Mumbai. This is
a windswept promenade, flanked by the sea and a row
of art deco buildings. Looped between the concrete jungle
of Nariman Point, Mumbai's Manhattan, and the leafy
green slopes of Malabar hill, Marine Drive was once
called the queen's Necklace, strung with glittering
street lights like an enormous strand of imperious jewels.
It is also one of Mumbai's busiest roads, an important
artery for the heavy suburban traffic heading downtown.
Cars whiz continually past the two mile stretch, past
huddled lovers, children and babies in perambulators.
Like other seafronts, this is where most of south Mumbai
comes to breathe in some fresh air.
