Since my teenage days, I have been quite fond of Gujarati culture; mainly because of its Garba dance. With the purpose to explore more about the former capital of the state Gujarat, 2 years ago I went to Ahmedabad.

I was accompanied with my hubby and two kids, and we went on exploring the beauty of this wonderful city which is situated on the banks of the mesmerizing Sabarmati River. Being the sixth largest city in India, I did expect it to be quite huge.

From the broad roads to the tall buildings, everything about this new face of Gujarat was fascinating for me as well as for my husband. But, there were more things to do in Ahmedabad city. During our trip to Ahmedabad, we went to the below mentioned hot spots. They are the must visit places in Ahmedabad I say.
Sabarmati Skyline Tour – If you are an adventure seeker then this is the must check out thing in Ahmedabad. It is a zipline crossing that allows you to experience the thrill of crossing the river at high speeds. This is one of the best things to do in Ahmedabad.

Akshardham Temple – Located 25 Kms from Ahmedabad, this temple is perhaps one of the most beautiful structures I had ever come across. The massiveness of this monument had definitely left me in a state of awe. If you want to witness the marvel of today’s Indian architecture, this is the place to visit.

Science City Ahmedabad – Also known as the Gujarat Science City, this place was exciting particularly for my two kids. If you have kids and want to show them the different elements of science and nature then you must bring them to this hot spot.
Shanku’s water park – My husband and my two kids are quite fond of water parks. Hence, visiting this amazingly cool place was an obvious decision. However, it was located almost 60 kms from the city.

Law garden night market – Woman and shopping cannot be separated. When I had visited this highly vibrant night market in Ahmedabad, I simply went crazy and purchased some really colorful and beautiful Gujarati attires for myself and my family.
