“Kuch din to gujariye Gujarat mein”

1.Rann of kutch
This is the most mesmerizing place I have ever seen anywhere else nestled between endless Thar desert and mighty Arabian Sea having a unique combination of sand and salt. It is said that on full moon nights, this shines like a diamond with a serene calmness all around.we have rented the cottage nearby Runn during the winter cultural festival of Runn of Kutch equipped with all basic eminities showcasing the village culture in a miniature form.Best time to visit Gujarat is during winters, when the cultural fest called 'Rann Mahotsav' is flaunting with live music, dance,Camel ride, Kutch's art and craft and much more.So this one is the must to visit place.

Amongest the Chaar Dhaam, Dwarka is the main Hindu pilgrimage destinations in India which is famous for Lord Krishna's sacred city that fills the surroundings with a bliss all around. Bet Dwarka is the place taken by boats across the waves in the middle and renowned Dwarkadhish Temple
is the five story building and a famous Hindu's tourist place.

Diu , a small island having beaches, cool breezy air all the year around and has the popular tourists attractions like Nagoa Beach, Diu Fort reflecting the Portuguese culture. The beaches are superclean and offers nostalgic views.

One of the most sacred places dedicated to Lord Shiva and considered as one of the twelve Jyotirlings, with a beautiful sideview of sea and infrastructure is having intricate designing.

6.Rani Ki Vav
This place is still in our bucket list to visit. The main highlight of the stepwell is that its walls that are ornamented with motifs and showcases images of various god and goddess.

9.Saputara Hill Station in Gujarat
If you think Gujarat is just about forts, palaces, temples but surprisingly it is also having a hill station within its vicinity, Saputara. Tucked in the Sahyadri hills amidst the dense forest, Saputara is an uber cool retreat that offers people of Gujarat respite from its humid weather.

And last but not the least ,The statue of Unity, we already discussed in our last post is making Gujarat outshine.

Cultural festivals and street foods of Gujarat
If you visit to plan in winters, then International Kite festival is the must to watch when the sky is overloaded with the brilliant picturesque view of varieties of kites all around.  On Makar Sakaranti, there is a unique kite festival having celebrated all across Gujarat with a huge favor.
The major Gujarati meals you can't miss anyway if you are in Gujarat are Khakhra, Thepla, fafda, Gathiya with fried green chillies are their famous street foods.
