Surat, the city of sun, is famous for its diamond and textile business across the world. Anyone, who wants to purchase jewellery or Sarees must visit Surat for the same. Apart from this, Surat is also known for ‘Ficus religiosa’ also popularly known as Peepal tree which dates back thousands of years. It is said to have existed from the time of Mahabharata. Karna, from this mythology, is said to have burrows under this tree and thus the place holds a lot of sacred vibes.

There are certain things that one needs to keep in mind before moving to Surat.

Firstly, you must remember Surat is a business hub, textile industry and diamond being its two pillars. Naturally, it lacks the availability of corporate jobs. Thus, if you’re moving to the city to earn some bread, you should have a vision of setting up a new business in the aforesaid fields and scale up your skills accordingly.

Secondly, a majority of the population commonly speak Gujarati/Hindi. I recommend you get yourself a basic understanding of the languages to feel more comfortable.

As far as food is concerned, you will find a variety of cuisines in the city which will be a blessing to your taste buds. But one must also remember that non-vegetarian food isn’t produced and consumed much here and may not be easily available.

if you’re an alcohol-lover, this city might not the most perfect destination for you. Gujarat is a dry state and therefore there are no liquor shops nor do there exist any pubs/bars.

Weather here is quite pleasant throughout the year and therefore you need not worry about the same. It can get a little too hot during summers but I wouldn’t say that it’s unmanageable.

Unlike the metropolitan cities, traffic here is almost non-existent. Transportation facilities are comparatively cheaper as well.

Surat is beautiful and a lively city and if moving here won’t be a decision that you would regret.

Shivam, says: 2020

There isn’t a lot of sightseeing to do in Surat. There are a bunch of upcoming malls and eateries lining up on every corner. But the eateries certainly offer delectable food, and are the essence of this city when it comes to satisfying those hunger pangs.
