You’ll be surprised at how much Ahmedabad has to offer when it comes to recreation. India’s largest city is also known for being a dry state but that doesn’t mean the people who live here don’t know how to have fun.
We spoke to 5 Ahmedabadi influencers who gave us the inside scoop on what all the cool people in Ahmedabad do when they’re not working. And apart from some legendary house parties, there are a bunch of restaurants, shopping and sightseeing you need to do when you’re in town.
The one place you can’t miss out on when you’re in Ahmedabad is Vishalla for dinner. The outdoor restaurant serves authentic Gujarati food – and no, it doesn’t get better than this anywhere else.
I'll take a feast for one, please ???? _________________________________________________ #proofimalive #day1 #india #ahmedabad #gujarat #solotravel #vishalla #curryfordays #jaleebi #omnomnom #noms #vegetarian #gujarati #gujaraticuisine #indianfood #foodporn #travel #wander #explore #roam #adventure #wanderlust #instatravel #roundtheworld #tripstagram #indianculture #ahmedabad_instagram #amdavad #travelsolo #neverstopexploring
