Budget Street Shopping is the best form of therapy. Who doesn’t enjoy wandering the streets filled with small shops, stuffed in with clothes, shoes, bags, OH! You name it. The thrill of the hunt to get the exact pair of shoes that Sonam Kapoor wore in the Veere Di Wedding and that also on a budget!! Surely we shopaholics won’t miss that.

And the triumph of a bargain worth fighting for and then the victory when the seller agrees on your price because whether you are a tourist or a local, we all like to buy things at an affordable price and we always like to spend on a budget. Street shopping is also incomplete without Street Food. And let’s not forget an Mc D’s burger and fries. Wouldn’t that just add flavour to your shopping experience?  

Here is the list of my top favourite 3 best street shopping areas which will not only give you the best shopping experience on an affordable price but also will give you the taste of Mumbai street food.
