They Say – “If you loose anything in Mumbai, you can buy it back from the Chor Bazaar” . Chor bazaar is located in South Mumbai, near Bhendi Bazaar and is one of the largest flea markets in India.
The word “Chor” means a Thief in hindi. You can buy antiques, hardware tools, wooden cravings, silver coins, vintage stamps, brass statues etc.

after that we proceeds to DHARAVI
Visit Dharavi and see why it is the heart of small scale industry in Mumbai, Known to many as ‘one of the largest slums in Asia’, we prefer to think of Dharavi as Mumbai’s beating heart. It houses about one million of Mumbai’s inhabitants and its industries have an annual turnover of approximately US$ 665 million.
Through our educational walking tours, visitors experience a wide range of these business activities: recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more.
We’ll also visit the residential areas of Dharavi. People from all over India have come to live in Dharavi, making it a microcosm of India. This diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques, churches and pagodas that stand side by side.
