Things To Do In Mumbai On Weekends

Clubbing and bar hopping are already popular choices for weekend plans for a lot of people. So, we’ve decided to skip those on our list and explore the other weekend activities you can opt for. Here is what you can do to make your weekends in Mumbai more interesting:

1. Join A Paint Party

Join a weekend painting party in Mumbai and let your creativity run wild as you paint bold strokes to create your own masterpiece. Conducted in popular cafes and pubs  on weekends, these paint parties don’t require you to have any prior painting experience. Over some food and drinks, you can try your hand at knife painting, oil painting and other art forms. Paint, mingle, and munch — it’s a formula to make your weekend a lot more stimulating.

2. Go For A Trek

Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city? Feed the adventure junkie in you with some trekking. Mumbai is surrounded by some beautiful hill stations that can offer a quick escapade for you. Put on your trekking shoes and get set to conquer some peaks and fort around Mumbai. Rajmachi, Prabalmachi, Karnala, Garbett Point, Sandhan Valley, Harishchandragad are some of the popular trekking spots near Mumbai.

On most weekends, there are multiple tour operators who organize a weekend trek to these places. If you’re confident of your own trekking skills, you could even go there on your own.
