Things To Do In Gujarat

Gujarat is a fusion of new ideas and old world traditions. There are several things to do in Gujarat¸ which might very possibly be as rare and unique as the state’s rich historical heritage. With the amalgamation of several cultures, Gujarat is rich in terms of offering a thousand types of things to do, ideal for the adventurous at heart or for those looking for a relaxing vacation. Gujarat offers something or the other to do for people of every age, from fairs for the kids to religious festivals for pilgrims, from the thrill of finding a lost civilization at Lothal to the joy of shopping in Kutch for the perfect bandhani textiles, Gujarat offers a plethora of activities to indulge in. Taking a desert safari in Kutch is one of the best adventure thrills for tourists of all ages.

If you are thinking of what to do in Gujarat then read on to find out exactly what might titillate your mind. One of the most important and enjoyable things to do in Gujarat India includes attending the Navratri Festival. Held during early October or late September, Navratri is a major festival for Gujaratis, with celebrations going for nearly 10 days. Almost all of the state is decked up like a beautiful bride, and the nights see people come out of their houses in traditional finery and dance the night away. Another must do is camping at the Rann of Kutch, under the countless stars and on a white desert that is bathed in the eerie moonlight. What can be a better experience than this? Tents with all sorts of modern amenities are also available, so that once you step off the desert you can enter a cool haven of modern utilities. If not camping, then plan to visit the Rann Utsav, a festival held once a year in the white salt pans of Kutch. Camping, watching traditional dance and folk performances, eating Gujarat food, and shopping in Kutch are some of the most rewarding activities in Gujarat. The vibrant shades of the fair are a stark contrast to the blinding white colors of the desert.

A jeep safari in the Gir National Park is also a must do on your list of things to do in Gujarat, especially if you want to see the rare Asiatic lion in all its glory. The number of lions in the national park is on a steady rise, so you will be sure to spot one or more here for sure. If you are a bird lover then the bird photography tour in Jamnagar might interest you. This tour moves from Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary to the Marine National Park, followed by a visit to the Dhichda, Balachadi and then Lakhota Lake. On the way you get to enjoy photographing a plethora of rare Indian and migratory birds. You can also enjoy paragliding in Saputara, the only hill station of the state. Visiting the many temples of the state such as Dwarka and Somnath is a favorite among those inclined towards religion. There are several other temples here as well that are worth a visit. No matter which part of Gujarat you find yourself in, one thing is for sure; you will find something or the other things to do in Gujarat for sure.

    Ramanath Kamath

    Bengaluru

    Ramanath's 4 days trip to Gujarat

    The travel agent from Aarti Holidays (Mr. Samir) had provided me a competitive itinerary for 3N, 4D trip to Gujarat on short notice. The itinerary was closely matching our budget and wish-list for our first trip to Gujarat. I and my wife, 2 PAX traveled. Information provided by the Mr. Samir and the subsequent follow-ups / support were professional. The best part of the trip was the cab provided to us for the 1200+ kms of road trip for the 4 days .The cab driver (Guddu bhai) was seasoned & professional, highly trust-able and very supportive. He also provided us information about places, food, general queries Etc. We will highly recommend Guddu bhai. The hotels provided were also clean and good. There were couple of minor glitches, which are not worth a mention and can be expected in such a trip. Overall, the trip was memorable. Thanks!

    Saumava's 5 days trip to Gujarat

    It was an awesome experience travelling with Aarti Holidays and Travels. The best part of the trip was the smooth coordination of the trip by the travelling agent. The accomodation and transportation facility provided was excellent. The hospitality of the resort staff touched our hearts. The driver was very skilled, professional and very friendly narrating stories of different places we visited. And most importantly the support staff of Aarti Holidays and Travels always kept in touch with us throughout the trip over whatsapp and phone. I appreciate the hospitality and support provided by Aarti Holidays and Travels for the trip and look forward for travelling again in near future.

    RAJKUMAR SINGH

    Delhi

    Rajkumar's 7 days trip to Gujarat

    Had a very satisfactory trip. "De Voyager" were very supportive from the planning stage. They answered all questions whenever asked. Ms. Trupti Roy co-ordinated the trip excellently well. We never had a feeling of not being cared for during the trip. We are a senior citizen couple. Hotels at Ahmedabad were not upto expectations. Treebo Trend Ahmedabad was the worst and Hotel Bait inn had a " do not care"attitude towards guests. This feed back was given to Ms. Trupti. In fact they changed from Treebo to Hotel Bait Inn on my complaint. I am happy they took action to make me comfortable. Good car with a polite driver was provided who took care of our comfort in a very unobtrusive way. Did not have to wait for him anywhere. He took care to find clean eating places in journey and always pointed out the place where he would come and meet us after we have visited the site. As some travellers have pointed out they should take care of closing days for some sites while drawing up the itinerary. Overall a happy journey.

    FAQ's of Gujarat

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
