Ambala is the twin City of Haryana. Ambala is well connected to major city of India. There is famous cloth Market and science market. People of nearby state visit here for shopping and business. Ambala is a centre point for the people who want to visit shimla and other hill areas nearby.

The one moving here must be aware of that the people are not friendly enough. be self dependent. at the railway station and bus stops one must be more careful about the thugs. Always use maps on your phone to find your way and do not believe on anyone else except the police officers.

I would advised them to expect a simple life as there are little professional opportunities in the city. Besides, the infrastructure and healthcare system are not advanced either. However, the simplicity is one of the factors that make the city a lovely place where one finds help and support.
