Mumbai's fleeting winter is the ideal time for its citizens to soak in the pleasant weather. Naturally, events centred on culture, heritage and the arts are held in the outdoors, adding a unique layer to their must-do itinerary.

Joining this is the newest entrant - India Heritage Walk Festival 2018 by Sahapedia. The Delhi-based encyclopaedia of arts and culture had kick-started this unique initiative last year, and has plans to take this idea across India's metros. The Mumbai chapter includes seven walks (all free) spread across three weekends.
