Some Of The Most Exciting Things To Do In Ahmedabad


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 РLocated 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.

Science City Ahmedabad – An Accomplished Endeavor of Learning Science with Fun


Almost half of my expedition has been completed, and we are on the move to the next place of recreation. Ahmedabad has always been a versatile city, full of amusement, enjoyment, and learning and the most importantly, an inspirational recreation zone. My children were always my priority throughout my journey. The complete plan was framed keeping in mind, their field of interest, their rejoicing mood and of course an induced sense of learning while travelling. As can be clearly noticed in all the previous blogs, that I had been a bit selfish while making a choice of the places to visit. My tempting and craving love for nature and learning literature has completely engrossed me to visit them. But then it was time for the kids. So the next place of excitement was on the demands of my siblings, i.e., Science city Ahmedabad. As the name itself resembles the exploring of science, the place is actually worth visiting.

An ambitious initiation taken by government of Gujarat to construct science city, on the land of Ahmedabad has undoubtedly, triggered the mind of the tourists as well as the local habitants with a wide knowledge of science and imaginations. It was actually a land of fantasies for my kids, about which they had read only in the books and other articles. With an aid of experiential and entertaining wisdom, the Science City is an accomplished structure situated off the Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway. The areas of enthusiasm like, musical dancing fountain, 3D IMAX theatre, simulation and the energy park were indeed the places of having a gala time for me and my family. As far as my sense of learning is concerned, the investments incurred for this splendid and informative place of attraction holds a perfect blend of ecological awareness along with the proper use of science.

This part of our travelling to Science city in Ahmedabad has actually inculcated us with an innovative form of knowledge with some activity corners, live demonstration, laboratories and wide displays. With a glimpse into the galaxy of development and technology, I decided to head towards my next designated spot, Adlaj Vav Ahmedabad. The sun struggling to settle down, calm and moist air around my face, and a pleasing environment, with no trace of tiredness, I was still afresh and hence, geared up to visit the next place.
