Welcome to Surat101!
I am glad to have you as a part of this extravagant city blog. I believe that every city tells a story. And there’s a beautiful story this diamond city holds since its inception. And that’s the biggest reason to start a dedicated blog on Surat city.
It is the journey that is memorable more than the destination.
Here you will discover the unexpected, the unexplored, and the underrated. In other words the true essence of the Diamond City Surat. We (You & I) will together uncover the hidden gems of this sparkling city of Gujarat.
Whether it’s a crowded street, a busy food joint or a place to escape and relax, I will hear their stories & share them with you.
Surat101.com is the brainchild of a common Surti. He lives & enjoys every bit of this bustling city to the fullest day in & out.
Hence, this blog is a perspective of a commoner who is just like you. He visualizes Surat differently & wants to share the same with you. Now, you can imagine how this fun ride is gonna take turns and twist.
So, fasten your seat belts then! If you are visiting Surat101.com for the first time, we can imagine you thinking about where to begin from. This is the reason why we have created this page. You can call this page a doorway to step inside and have a close look at Surat in a totally different way.
So, let’s get you started.
#1 Get to Know ME | Who Am I?
A Gujarati born and brought up in Surat.
Hi, I’m Vijay. If you think I’m a travel or a food blogger then no I am not one. I write and publish this blog. And I do make sure it reaches you. I personally believe that people across the globe should get good information. And our city Surat is great in every sense. Node your head, if you agree with me! Do you?
Everyone out there must know how fabulous Surat is. How good-hearted people living in Surat are? How’s life in Surat? What are the opportunities? How people here celebrate every moment of their life? That is not it.
Here you will read and enjoy much more than what’s written above. As I said, it’s about YOU, ME & SURAT.

#4 Surat101 – What’s in the Name?
The idea behind naming the blog Surat101 is interesting. 101 here doesn’t represent a number, it’s a lingo. Basically, 101 means “basic”, “introductory” or “beginner”. The same applies to this blog.
And one more thing it’s not “one-o-one” it is “one-zero-one”.
#5 What is the need for Creating a Blog on Surat?
WE AIM TO DO THE SAME.
Here’s a list of some of the best city blogs that I love & follow:
