I will be in Mumbai again from the 25th Jan to 1st Feb 2013, for bridal shopping. I have just found out that it will be a public holiday on the 25th Jan for Prophet Muhamad's bday and 26th for Republic day. Desperately need help to know if boutiques will be open for business as usual on these days, based on past trend.
Also, I had previously stayed in Midland Hotel, and was looking for hotels around the same area again. I noticed that there is a Hotel called Sai Palace which seems to look like its next to Midland hotel, but am not sure if the online description is accurate. Appreciate some help in this area too.
Lastly, I would also appreciate more suggestions of places to shop for wedding outfits. Based on past experience I note that there are some really nice choices in Santa Cruz West area. Are the choices in boutiques like Benzer much better and how does the price range differ?
Thanks in advance for sharing :)
