Essential Information About Gujarat
Food: If you are in Gujarat then you already must be salivating over the amazing local delicacies. One of the best known facts of Gujarat is that the food here is fit for Gods. From spicy snacks to sinful sweets, from special thalis with more than 30 items to simple fritters that pack a punch, the food of Gujarat is something to be written home about. Some must try dishes here include the thepla, fafra, jalebi, dhokla and khaman dhokla. Sometimes there are dishes that go with a particular sweet dish, and should be haven at a particular time of the day, such as the fafra and the jalebi which are generally considered breakfast food. There are also several restaurants here, some of them world famous, that offer authentic Gujarati thalis that come chock a block full of goodies such as vegetable curries, lentils, Indian breads and sweets of several kinds.
Shopping: When looking for information of Gujarat, information related to shopping is something you must find out. Places like Ahmedabad and Surat are great for stocking up on Bandhani items and other dress materials, whereas places such as Kutch are good for buying handicraft items and junk jewelry. You can also buy non-perishable snacks to take back home, as well as a plethora of other souvenirs. Try to give the malls a miss, and shop at the local markets for handmade and authentic stuff. Also, remember that although bargaining is part of shopping at the local markets, do not slight the seller by undermining the value of something handmade and something that took time.
Festivals: Among the many festivals that Gujarat is famed for the most important and probably the most awaited is the Navratris. People start planning for the next navratris even as one is underway. For 10 whole days, the entire state is decorated with fairy lights, tents with garba and dandiya dancing competitions, live artists performing the favorite numbers of the crowd and food to tempt the senses. People come dressed up in all their finery, fast for almost the entire 10 days, perform puja and yet manage to dance the evening away. This festival is a must attend if you really want to see the fervor that the festival inspires.
Culture: The culture of Gujarat is evident in all its nuances. Cultural diversity and a rich heritage is what makes Gujarat such an amazing place to visit. Despite being one of the most developed and industrialized states of the country, Gujarat has managed to hold on to its heritage. Aboriginal communities and various tribes form one fifth of the population of the state, and bring their own twists and turns to Gujarat’s heritage. Be it the traditional dance forms or the folk music, Gujarati culture is sure to woo your heart.
Nightlife: There isn’t much of a nightlife in Gujarat, if you are looking for pub or bar culture. Being a dry state – which means strictly no alcohol – the nightlife of Gujarat is limited to restaurants and beaches, apart from the shopping areas.

Trip to GujaratDe Voyager worked with us to get entire trip planned. Booking were done in timely manner. Hotels were good. Taxi driver was polite and flexible. De Voyager was exceptionally flexible considering that I had done partial bookings of hotels and travel with half baked itinerary before contacting Travel Triangle. They were able to fill in all the gaps and made a seamless experience. Special call out for Trupti Roy for the excellent support.
Trip to GujaratOnce again... Travel triangle and its agents don't dissapoint. We had a 5 days gujrat trip and was travelling with my parents. Kudos to the entire team of street romeo travel planner. Special shoutout to siddarth who was in touch with us throughout the trip. Inspite of the fact that we had to almost cancel the plan due to family emergency, and the plan was finalised last moment, Siddharth and his team managed everything perfectly. Glitch free beautiful trip. Thank you to entire team!!! Attending aarti at shree somnath ji.
Trip to GujaratStreet Romeo arranged a well organised trip. It was indeed a wonderful experience.
Trip to GujaratThe entire trip was very well organised. The Street Romeo travels arranged a good trip for us. The one Hotel Gir Pride in Sasan Girl was not upto the mark. The staff was very rude. However, the owner atleast listened to the queries. The light and music show in Somnath. The amazing food across the trip.
Trip to GujaratTravel agent, Driver were very good and friendly! We did not face any single small problem. We had a great trip! Many thanks to Team Travel Triangle!
Trip to GujaratThe 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.
