Ahmedabad is the most attractive destination in Gujarat for business and vacation. It is my favourite travel destination when I have some spare time to visit good travel destinations in Gujarat. It is one of the most important business destinations in Gujarat. In recent time, Ahmedabad is growing as one of the best shopping destinations in Gujarat.
Lal Darwaja is a popular shopping place in Ahmedabad for budget and lower priced items. Let’s have a look at my shopping experience with given point wise tips and guide.
1. Do Bargaining with Hawker / Shop Owner
Lar Darwaja is a crowded shopping place in Ahmedabad with lots of hawkers selling various items from clothes to electronics items. Generally, they quote higher prices for every item and if you are aware about the actual price of particular item, then you must bargain with the hawker/shop owner. Most of the time, item price is quoted higher than it’s original price.
In past, I have experienced that they have quoted more than 5x price than it’s original price. So, it is advisable to keep bargaining till hawker lowers the price.
A few hawkers have regular tactics in quoting higher prices, such as Rs. 100 for a product of Rs. 20-30.
2. Check Quality of Product
For such a low budget shopping destination, you would not get high quality products here. However, it’s a good shopping place in Ahmedabad to get good products at such a low price. Do not forget to buy duplicate branded products from Lal Darwaja Ahmedabad.
3. Safety Tips at Lal Darwaja
It is one of the best places for shopping in Ahmedabad. However, a few number of stealing incidents happened at Lal Darwaja. Do not bring your original documents, large amount, expensive phones, original passport, or such any other things. Take care of yourself from chain snatchers too!
4. Street Food
Lal Darwaja is one of the best places to eat street food in Ahmedabad. You can eat a variety of local food at Lal Darwaja. Pani Puri, Samosa, Dhokla, Dhosa and other variety of foods are available here. A good number of hotels and restaurants are available in Lal Darwaja area.
