      The hotel in Bhuj " White Resort" was pathethic. Rooms were not as per the expectations. They didn't had inhouse kitchen, everything was outsourced. Didn't like the hotel rooms, bahtroom and ambience. White resort is like an ordinary hotel, not at all as per the 3 star standards. There are many other good hotels in Bhuj. Toran resort in Rann of Kutch was excellent. The staff was really polite and even the rooms were good. I will strongly recommend Toran resort to everyone.

    Ahmedabad is considered one of the safest city in India, especially for solo travellers. The Gujaratis are very warm and welcoming people. However, it is best to take care of yourself like in any other place during travel and keep your luggage safe at all times.

    While Gujaratis are known for their vegetarianism, non-veg food is not all that hard to find in major cities in Gujarat. There are plenty of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine in Gujarat.

    Navaratri, Rann Utsav, and Uttarayan (kite festival) are famous festivals in Gujarat. The Bhavnath Fair in Junagadh, Vautha Fair in Vautha, Shamlaji Mela near Himmatnagar, and Dang Darbar in Ahwa are popular fairs to visit in Gujarat.

    Gujarat is renowned for being a dry state, meaning alcohol is banned in the state. It is not advised for travellers to purchase liquor illegally in Gujarat. However, there are some designated high-end hotels that sell alcohol to permit holders. A permit can be acquired from the officials by showing a valid identity proof. Non-Indians can also purchase a 30-day permit to buy alcohol in Gujarat.
