Borås was Sweden's major district for producing textiles and is still well-known for having many shops that sell high-quality textiles for low prices.
Landvetter Airport (GOT) located about 40 km from Borås has daily flights to most major european airhubs.
Buses are operated by Västtrafik and covers the whole city and it's suburbs. However the city is small enough to walk around the centre.
Altough Borås might not be the best city in Sweden for drinking it has a few places worth visiting.
