Aside from the monsoon season, the climate is extremely dry. The weather is hot from March to June; the average summer maximum is 43 °C (109 °F), and the average minimum is 24 °C (75 °F). From November to February, the average maximum temperature is 30 °C (86 °F), the average minimum is 13 °C (55 °F), and the climate is extremely dry. Cold northerly winds are responsible for a mild chill in January. The southwest monsoon brings a humid climate from mid-June to mid-September. The average annual rainfall is about 800 millimeters (31 in), but infrequent heavy torrential rains cause local rivers to flood and it is not uncommon for droughts to occur when the monsoon does not extend as far west as usual. The highest temperature in the city was recorded on 18 and 19 May 2016 which was 50 °C (122 °F).

    Drinking Law:
    Drinking alcohol is prohibited in Gujarat. Visitors can get an alcohol permit on arrival which allows them to consume alcohol.

    Tipping:
    Tipping is an important part of etiquette to be observed while touring anywhere in India. Tipping porters and stewards in hotels is very common in Ahmedabad and is usually 10% of the bill. Also, don’t forget to tip your tourist guide.

    Safety:
    Ahmedabad is considered the second safest city in India after Mumbai, especially for single female travelers. The locals are warm and welcoming. However, like in any other part of the world, it is best to be cautious and keep your belongings safe at all times.

    By Air:
    The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport caters to both domestic and international flights to and from Ahmedabad. It is located around 14 kilometres away from the city and is connected to all major cities of India. It also has flights to international cities including New York, London, Dubai, Singapore and Colombo. It is one of the busiest airports in Gujarat with as many as 250 flights taking off in a single day. You can easily book a pre-paid taxi from the airport to reach any part of the city.

    By Bus:
    Ahmedabad is connected to all cities of Gujarat and Mumbai via deluxe bus services run by (AMTS) and Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC). Major bus stops have interstate buses running as well. You may want to pre-book the seats since a lot of people travel by bus.

    By Train:
    Falling under the national railway circuit and known as Kalupur Station, Ahmedabad’s railway station is well connected to all the cities in Gujarat and major cities of India like Delhi, Mumbai, Jodhpur and Jaipur with trains running several times in a day. Other cities like Goa, Jammu, Cochin, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Patna, Mangalore are also accessible via train.

    Road/Self Drive:
    Driving to Ahmedabad from Mumbai is possible via the new highway (NH-8) and would take some 8 to 9 hours, approximately, to cover the distance of 550 kilometers. This highway, however, experiences traffic jams during most part of the day. If driving from Vadodara to Ahmedabad, you may take the dedicated express way (NE-1).
