I've been to Mumbai many times and will spend a day there in December. Lower Parel has changed since I was there in 2009 (at the complex where the Good Earth is located) - I would like to find shops of equal interest - housewares, scarves, etc. Are there any tourist oriented maps of The neighborhood? Info on interesting shops - I have NO interest in high end Western shops, etc. I know that I can Google the various Mills and see what they house, but recommendations are always better (excluding Indigo - I know the owner)
Also, I will stay in Bandra West, to be closer to the airport - how long should it for a taxi and what should it cost to get to Parel? Any horrible road work enroute?
