Surat, having its name associated with Saurashtra (the good land), is a port city in Gujarat. The second most populated city in the state, Surat is a global diamond cutting centre and a commercial hub of textiles. Known as 'the city of flyovers', it attracts tourists who are interested in the colonial history of the region and the exotic wildlife.
Packed on the south bank of a sharp bend in the Tapi River (Tapti), Surat is located 306 km south of the state capital, Gandhinagar
. Once known for silk-weaving, it emerged as a major textile and diamond hub of India, with the shops in the New Textile Market area often crowded with buyers and shoppers. Prominent tourist attractions in Surat are the Surat Castle, Science Centre Complex and the Diamond Gallery among others.
Having the reputation of being light-hearted, easy-going, and fun-loving, with a passion for food, Surat is an absolutely great place for a family vacation.

- Surat is a beautiful city. It is a complete package for the whole family, pleasing all ages. This city is extremely lively, full of colors and energy. The days here can be extremely hot, especially if you are travelling during summers. Make sure you have enough precautions to protect yourself from the scorching heat of the sun.

The best thing I like about this place is the food. At present, there are a number of small cafes popping in and around the city. I would recommend eating locho, one of the best street foods there. Surat has one English Cemetery which is not maintained properly but if you love history, you will find it really interesting especially the epitaphs on the graves from the time of British raj. Summers in Surat are pretty pleasant especially if you're near the sea but it tends to get really humid.
