    I have arrived in Mumbai as late as 1.am and found girls traveling in local train. I would say, compared to other metros, it is a lot safer in Mumbai... However, a little caution is always advised. A lot also depends on where are you planning to travel to and how do you travel. Local Trains and BEST are safe. Auto Rickshows may not be if those are driven by some north Indian chap

    Nee Haao!! Welcome to Mumbai. Safety Advices: Avoid extreemly crowded places like "Gatway of India" on a holiday. It's not common, but molestation by the crowd is not unknown. Avoid that. Travelling by Auto-rikswa or Taxi is mostly safe, if you suspect anything wrong, tell the driver to take to the police station. If you travel by train, buy the 1st class ticket and travel in Ladies Compartment. Exchange your foreign currency to a Bank or ATM and use Indian currency only. Ask somebody the auto fare before you travel, else (auto driver)they will try to cheat. Thery will ask Rs 150/ instaed of Rs. 20/ Anywhere if you feel safety or securuty threat, just shout and pretend to assult to the suspect. If you can gather people, they will support you and start nailing down an offender. If you visit Nightclubs and Discos, aviod drinks brought to you by others, beware of "Party Drugs". Else, the city is safe and you can enjoy it to the fullest! YOu might compare it with Shanghai!!

    A few female friends and I were in Mumbai last month for a few days of shopping and clubbing. It was great, we felt safe......walking around. But a friend of mine gave me the contact details of her taxi driver and he took us around, which was much better that us using public transportation.
