Chor Bazaar in Mumbai

Chor Bazaar, literally meaning thieves market, is unlike any other shopping destination of Mumbai. Its unlike any other shopping place because there is no other place in entire country, let alone Mumbai, which sells such huge number of second hand products at unbelievable bargain rates under one roof. Chor Bazaar in Mumbai is indeed nothing short of utopian paradise for bargain shoppers. And on a lighter note, people visiting Chor Bazaar for the very first time do not worry at all about police raids; since almost all products sold here are second hand products and not stolen products.              
And once you’re inside Chor bazaar, you’ll be literally bulldozed by plethora of stalls and hawkers. On any given day there are mind boggling 300 hawkers and stalls in Chor Bazaar, which sell everything & anything that a diehard shopaholic’s mind can conjure up: right from small stationary item like pen to high end electronic gadgets like laptops & tablets.
