Rajkot, Gujarat, India for Travelling by a GSRTC bus to Surat from Rajkot

Buses are one of the most convenient ways to travel from Rajkot to Surat. Especially when GSRTC buses are reliable and cooperative with passengers. According to my personal experience of traversing to Surat was great. I bought bus tickets online at https://www.redbus.in/online-booking/gsrtc.aspx ; my friend was travelling with me. So, both of is decided to travel by a GSRTC Sleeper bus, the 8 hours of bus journey was a pleasant one.

We boarded the bus from Rajkot central bus stand probably around 11:30pm and arrived in Surat at 7:30am. We were eager to experience the various attractions in Surat. Its amazing food with interesting attractions like Surat Castle, Dumas beach and much more creates a perfect holiday picture.
Having heard about this city of Surat a lot from others, my friend and me planned to visit this place during a long weekend. Since it was sudden plans, we could not make any other arrangement, thanks to the amazing bus booking portal, it helped me to get quick bus tickets at discounted rates and guaranteed friendly assistance during our bus journey.


The bus interiors were clean and comfortable; we carried our own blankets to sleep and they provided water bottles. The staff made sure that all passengers were travelling in ease. The bus passed through beautiful sceneries and landscapes, I simply got involved in listening songs (travel enhancer) while my friend was sleeping. The bus gave a rest stop; the place had nice refreshments options like hot coffee and tea.
Once we reached Surat in the morning, by the time our shuttle was waiting to take us to our hotel. We stayed at Hotel Rasraj, a few kilometres away from the bus stop. We treated our taste buds with Surat’s diversified of food items. We had a great time together! Travelling by bus was the best part!
