Is it safe to travel to Mumbai now?

Mumbai has a reputation for being one of India's most dangerous cities. In this highly populated city, petty crime is increasingly prevalent. However, if you follow the fundamental safety standards discussed above, most tourist spots in Mumbai are secure for international tourists.

During your stay, you should use caution in congested areas and when crossing roadways. Colaba, Churchgate Fort, and Marine Drive in South Mumbai are significantly safer areas to stay for first-timers.

Here are some tips for staying safe in Mumbai:

  • Keep an eye on your surroundings. Carry no big sums of money or valuables with you.
  • Don't go out at night by yourself. If you must stroll alone, consider using a cab or rickshaw.
  • Crossing the street should be done with caution. Because traffic in Mumbai may be hectic, always look both ways before crossing.
  • Avoid congested regions. Pickpockets are more likely to operate in densely populated locations.
  • Never take a drink from a stranger. In Mumbai, there have been instances of drug-laced beverages.
  • Any suspect activities should be reported to the police. If you notice something, report it.
