Raipur is probably one of the fastest developing cities in India. There’s extremely delicious food out here, there’s places for entertainments such as Marine Drive, snow world, malls, etc. Anybody who starts as a migrant, stays here as a resident. There are all kinds of markets found here from high-end to street stalls.

Our city is very beautiful. And someone moving here know that there is very beautiful places like marine drive, ram mandir, central park, for enjoying. and know that there is some pollution so they will be alert. And there is also a Chhattisgarhi food center.

One desirous of moving here Raipur must first of all find out everything about the climate here, because it is normally quite hot in Raipur. Secondly, one must be a lover of nature as there are many spots of natural beauty worth visiting in and around Raipur. It is a place with rich ethnic life of local Chhattisgarhi inhabitants who are simple and loving folk.

There is heavy traffic in the market area between 12 noon to four pm. A person should visit the market in the evening in my city. There are lot of places to move to my city where he can rent out a nice house. Fooding is not too costly here. A normal person with average income can easily survive here.

The one and the only reason to relocate to my city is that, it’s a very peaceful place. The people are very amicable and the city is famous for its heritage. The complete city is designed based on the concept of smart city. The education as well the medical facilities are very attractive.

Raipur city is the main city of Chhattisgarh. This city is ahead of all the cities of Chhattisgarh in modernity. It has a variety of philosophical sites and many big movie shoots have been done in this Raipur city and better treatment facilities in Raipur city. Available here Hospitals like AIIMS are available.

Raipur is the capital of my state and thus is one one of the most developed cities. with robust life, locations near all amenities and great people, proper service available everywhere, beautiful scenic garden made just for the public and different sources of entertainment, it is a good place to settle.

Raipur is known for being small but it has all the facilities of a big city. The food is great here and the people are quite friendly. Language isn’t a problem here, even illiterate people understand a little bit of English.

Femina, says: 2020

Raipur has a hot and humid climate most of the year. This city has a good number of people belonging to tribal regions. This is not a very crowded city. However, its population is on a steady rise due to increasing opportunities for small jobs and greater investment avenues towards small and large scale factories and settlement outlets. On an average, it is a peaceful place with abundant flora and fauna and rich biodiversity.

Raipur is one of the biggest city of Chhattisgarh. It is surrounded by cities like Bhilai, Durg, Rajnandgaon, and more. It had turned from a town to city in past years. Raipur has CM, Governor’s, education ministers and other ministers house who work for Chhattisgarh’s government. Its has Swami Vivekananda International Airport.

Abhinav, says: 2020

What Raipur lacks in natural beauties, it makes up for in infrastructural attractions. A home to mostly local businesses, it continues to grow its horizons to welcome new ventures and opportunities.

Raipur is a city with a very huge growth potential and is a very safe city. Therefore anyone moving or considering to migrate here will experience a safe and flexible environment to adapt with. recently there has been the construction of New Raipur so there are properties available at a comparatively economical price. The city also has things and places to enjoy and has many beautiful sightseeing places. sectors like education, health, sanitization, urbanization has a rapid advancement here as it is a capital city so most of the jobs for the state are performed through here.

Raipur is a great city, especially if you’re moving in from a small town or a metropolitan since it has an eclectic vibe of a chaotic city and a small, peaceful city at the same time. You have pretty much everything in residential areas, shopping, recreation, transportation, education, etc. It depends on your choice of lifestyle and how you would like to leverage the city’s resources. Also, Raipur is pretty well connected to other cities within Chhattisgarh and outside through transportation. I love the way AAI has built the Swami Vivekanand airport, with multiple flights to Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata everyday. AFAIK, airlines are planning to add (or have added already?) a few international destinations, and Singapore is the first of them. In terms of shopping, you can go to Ambuja Mall, Magnetto, and City Centre. Ambuja, especially, has all the major labels in clothing, and you can find high-end stuff there. If you have recently had a breakup and need some alone time, you can check out the Naya Raipur Central Park. I haven’t been there yet, but I have heard it’s good. Do check out Telibandha lake. There’s nothing special about the lake itself, but the road strip around it probably has the best street food in Chhattisgarh.
