We had planned a full day in Gujarat Science city and hoped to enjoy thrill ride/simulator, science and space exhibits and 3-d shows. Instead, we got the lacklustre staff, who were not ready to start rides and shows citing minimum person requirement. We going on weekdays could also have been a reason of low crowd, but that being said, still doesn’t justify staff’s behaviour to deny us rides and shows. Spent a total of 3 hours and left the place after lunch.
Boating at Sabarmati Riverfront
We took uber to Sabarmati Riverfront for boating and some quiet time. Uber driver dropped us at Flower garden which was quite far from boating point. Reached boating point after asking people for direction and wandering for around 30 minutes for some motorboat ride experience.
Afterwards, we sat on a bench for around 30 minutes looking at the tranquillity of Sabarmati while eating ice-cream.
Eat and shop at Manek Chowk
Took Uber to Manek Chowk for some mouth-watering and finger-licking Indian chats (Dabelis is a must-try) and some shopping. Manek Chowk is primarily a jewellery market in the morning, and eateries are opened in the night only. So, plan to go on the night only to experience chats.
This is must visit place in Ahmedabad. We were brought face to face with the life of Mahatma Gandhi; his education, struggles, disappointment, failure, achievement. It was serene to spend some time looking at Sabarmati River afterwards.
