From antiques to new-age art deco cabinets, Chor Bazaar in Mumbai is an antique hunter’s paradise. The Chor Bazaar roughly translates to ‘Thieves Market’. HolidayIQ Traveller Amit shares, “Chor Bazaar, in spite of this reputation, is said to sell mostly second-hand goods rather than stolen goods. The market is now famous for antique and vintage items.”
