The westernmost state in India, Gujarat, is a land of immense natural beauty, rich culture and heritage, and historical significance. The state attracts tourists with its multitude of historical sites, beaches, hills, wildlife sanctuaries, vibrant festivals, scrumptious food, and more. Known as the 'Land of Legends', it is a superb destination for a vacation, whether with friends, family or alone.
One of Gujarat's major metropolitan cities, Ahmedabad is an urban centre with a touch of old-school charm owing to its colonial past. It is most popular for the Sabarmati Ashram and for being very close to the Statue of Unity. A visit to the state capital of Gandhinagar is a must since it houses many beautiful temples like the magnificent Akshardham Temple and lush green gardens like the Indroda Nature Park.
Kutch is also a must-visit destination in Gujarat. It offers tourists a unique experience to explore the renowned salt desert, Rann of Kutch, and attend the joyous occasion of Rann Utsav, which features dance and music shows, crafts displays, local food etc. And of course, for those looking to escape the bustling city life, there is no better choice than Diu, a small island and a former Portuguese colony. This island town is known for its laid back atmosphere and is a popular getaway for short trips. Some of its most popular attractions are the serene Nagoa Beach, majestic Diu Fort and Naida Caves.
Gujarat is undoubtedly a treat for food lovers because it is synonymous with tasty food like khandvi, muthiya, lilva kachori and fafda-jalebi. Given its vibrant culture, it goes without saying that attending festivals like Navratri and Uttarayan would only add to the experience. And speaking of culture, the state is renowned for its exquisite handicrafts, including bandhani work, zari work, leather products, pottery craft and more. Gujarat is easily accessible via car, bus, train or flight from most parts of India.
