In the lead up to Diwali, last week I managed to fit in a tour of three of Mumbai's most famous markets -- Crawford Market, Mangaldas Market, and Zaveri Bazaar. Diwali is a particularly good time of year to go wandering through the markets, as there are so many eye catching decorations on display.  Zaveri Bazaar really comes alive on Dhanteras (the first day of Diwali) when people flock there to buy gold.

I visited the markets with Pranav of Grand Mumbai Tours. You can read about my experience (and why I decided to go on a tour despite the fact that I live in Mumbai)  in this market tour review, as well as see all the photos I took on Facebook and Google+.

This evening, I also dropped by my local market to pick up some Diwali decorations. It was so beautifully lit up, I couldn't resist taking these photos.

Happy Diwali everyone!
