How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Compared to other foreign postings, Ahmedabad does not have the scope and variety of clubs and organizations catering to expats. However, there are opportunities for socializing and forming new friendships. Often people discover new found leisure time, allowing the indulgence of new hobbies and interests during their residence. One way of contributing to local culture is through voluntary charity/welfare work, which will not only keep you active but also assist in understanding the complexities of life in the city.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
One can get involved with cultural organizations, social and sporting clubs, parks, paragliding, yoga, personal training, gymnasiums, theme parks and entertainment zones. People are warm and friendly, so it is easy to develop a good social circle.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?

For each of these disciplines, it is possible to find a personal tutor, or a place where classes are being conducted.
