#XPLOREBHARAT – Surat
Hello friends, welcome to Surat, situated on the banks of the river Tapi. It is one of the four major cities in the western Indian state of Gujarat, with a vibrant mix of modernity and tradition about it, as the post heading says.
Fun fact no. 1 : Did you know that 95% of the rough diamonds in the world are cut in Surat? Or that 90% of the nation’s diamond exports come from the city?
Surat is well-connected by rail, road and air to all the major cities of the country. The nearest mega cities are Ahmedabad and Mumbai, both 4 hours via train, one to the north and the other to the south.
