Surat

Diamond City

Off the map for most international tourists heading to India, the major industrial city of Surat has a long heritage in diamond-cutting and textile manufacturing. Locals speak little English by Indian standards, and tend to be surprised by international visitors, particularly those who've made the trip to Surat for leisure, rather than work. This can add a little more interest to the experience of walking down the market streets, admiring the textiles and diamond jewelry. Putting a twist on many traditional Gujarati dishes, the cuisine here tends to be a little spicier, and a little less sweet than what's on the menu elsewhere in the state. Surat is in Surat District.

Where to stay in Surat

Though off the radar for the bulk of international visitors, Surat stills stands as one of the largest and most populated cities in the country, so it has its fair share of accommodations. Stay in one of the guesthouses and simple hotels right in the center of town, close to the textile markets, for a particularly characterful experience with proximity to the main commercial sights. If looking for luxury, head to the banks of the Tapi River, where large resorts and hotels sit by the water a little farther out of town.
