Chor Bazaar, Mumbai, India
Concierge.com's insider take:
Chor Bazaar has everything from rare LPs to antique timepieces, from Burmese military medals to vintage Bollywood posters. Even long-standing loyalists are surprised by the oddities that surface here. Urban legend has it that robbers disposed of their loot at Chor Bazaar ("Thieves Market"), and to this day shopkeepers brag about how Queen Victoria's violin landed here after being pinched from her imperial galley.
Open daily Saturdays through Thursdays.
