Places for 2 days trip in either Ahmedabad OR Surat

I have 2 days in either Ahmedabad OR Surat (Mostly in Ahmedabad ). I will reach there sometime in September 2013.

Brother is having office work there and we (Me & wife) are going to accompany him.

Can anyone suggest me city places or nearby places which can be covered in 2 days.

Will arrive there on sat morning and will leave by Sunday Evening.

Regards,

Pritesh Kulkarni.

And also take the night heritage walk originating from the House of MG. During the day visit Sabarmati Ashram, Calico Museum, Hathesinh Jain Temples, the shaking minarets and Adalaj Vav.

Try Swati Snacks! :)

You are veggie so it would be a heaven for you for food. There are several dining halls offering excellent Guju thali which I am sure you will love.

Try Patanga restaurant which is revolving on a tower. I was impressed by their revolving more than the food. But it was back in 1992 now the story could be different.

I used to frequest Kwality restaurant on Relief Road for my dinners. Good old place, I am not sure whether it is there.

Your mornings should begin with Jalebi and Fafda, Bhajia etc. and day should end with ice cream in Old Ahmedabad city.

Thanks dear,

I have not been to Ahmedabad for at least a decade. I have touched it for few hours but that is not staying there. I remember Biryani and mutton cutlets at Moti Mahal restaurant near Ahmedabad station (Kalupur area if I am not mistaken).

Evening time, I used to visit Manek Chowk for ice cream after dinner. I remember a lavish frenchh dinner at 5 star hotel Karnavati on the banks of Sabarmati river. (My hosts were very nice) It is so sad that they do not serve alcoholic things since Gandhi ashram is just a couple of kms. away on the other bank of the river.

They do not serve even in Bhuj which is 500 kms. from Ashram (LOL). You get ample amount of it from backdoor illegally but legally we carry on with our hypocrisy.

Is Kwality restaurant still there on Relief road, Bapu?

I don't think so. But Moti Mahal, yes! Relief road is hardly ever frequented after the riots and being so congested. The new hip and happening road after that was CG Road and now Sarkhej Gandhinagar highway!
