Hello everyone
I'll be arriving in Mumbai at 6:30pm on New Years Eve. I was hoping to be in Mumbai earlier and buy a fantastic indian inspired new years outfit.
But because I'm arriving there at 6:30 direct from Australia, I'm wondering what I should be wearing on a night out for New Years in Mumbai.
While in India I would like to wear pretty saris and salwar kameez. Are these worn by girls in their 20's for new years? Or would more westernised clothing like jeans and a pretty top be more suitable?
Are shops open on new years? Will i be able to buy anything to wear?
Thanks all

Western dresses or Salwar kameez should be fine.
Shops would be open.

It depends where you want to go out for NYE as to what people will be wearing. You'll find most girls wearing western dress in bars and clubs. Not a lot of modern girls in their 20s wear salwaar kameez out in Mumbai anymore. Everyone wants to go western! You'll most likely want to give wearing a sari a miss on NYE. Saris just aren't practical, and you can't really buy them and wear them straight away. They need to be hemmed and a blouse made (you can get ready made blouses and petticoats if you hunt around though).

I always cover my legs and wear jeans (you'll feel more comfortable and attract less attention as a foreigner) although a lot of Indian girls don't even bother any more when they go out. They wear short dresses, skirts, everything! Don't worry about covering your shoulders too much if you go to a club. Dress standards aren't conservative. If I were you I'd go with the jeans and pretty top idea! You might want to bring a shawl for outside though.

A Sari or a Salwar Kameez on a nightout in Mumbai..whther NYE or not..is just not gonna cut it! You will just end up feeling more uncomfortable the whole evening!

As K&K mentioned, the best thing to wear would be jeans and a top..you might feel underdressed for the occasion but you will surely be comfortable!

It might be a good idea to sort out your NYE plans before you get here..Most Clubs/hotels have entry tickets which need to be bought much earlier! I am not really a fan of the NYE parties here though..the whole experience is worse (much!) than a normal Friday/Saturday night out. Food and Service is terrible..Everyone has a reason to be knackered..but YMMV!

Have a good time in Bombay!!

Thumbs up wish u all the best

Hi Raina!

Wishing u all the best for ur forth coming journey to Mumbai, India.

Well New year is special for all. So wear what is comfortable for u and which u love.

Well! for ur kind information i want to tell u that most of the mumbaites females do wear latest western clothes.

Only thing u have to take care is that u don remain out late night in secluded places and see that u have some company.

Well u can also look forward to come to Goa. New year is quiet a fun in Goa.

Anyway

Take care

Raj

Hey Guys!
I just signed up to this forum.

I will arrive alone in Mumbai on the 31.12.09 aswell (morning hours), so I would like to join you guys at night. Is there a group already? When do you meet up? Plans? I dont really feel like spending the night alone.

Me:
European, Mid-20's, open for everything, first time to India (but a lot of time spent in Asia)
Gonna travel there for ?? dont know 1-12 months.
Booked a hotel for the first 4 nights. After that, I'll see whats coming up.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Your trio might want to avoid bare backs and plunging neck lines or just have a jacket when you are out of the clubs and on the streets. If you are staying in South Mumbai head over to Fab India or Westside at Kalaghoda for your salwarkameez, short kurtas etc. You get variety and wont be ripped off. Other option is shops in colaba (not road side vendors!)
Do or do not, there is no try.
