Gujarat February 2014

I am coming to Gujarat from Goa in February 2014 with my husband could you please tell me if there are any direct flights to local airports.

We would like to spend 6 days visiting the main religious sites and would appreciate possible tour routes. I would also like suggestions for good quality hotels on route. We do not want to go on Safari.

Is it worth going to Diu when we have already spent a week in Goa?

Thanks Pratik. Do you have any suggestions for good hotels? I also wanted to do sari shopping if anyone knows of a good place I would appreciate it.

I have also seen that the Ram Ustav Desert Festival is on in February has anyone been there and can they give me some information about it.

Hi Beachbaby,

Rann Utsav Desert Festival Starts on 14 dec and will be running upto 18 march. Basically the festival is about staying in tent city set up for rann utsav. High speciality tent with attached bathrooms and chairs outside it for sitting and relaxing. There is tour for seeing the rann and its surrounding villages. The area of rann utsav holds many big domes displaying the art and culture of kutch region and other domes giving information about the industries, geography etc. There is also cultural programme on selected evenings where local artists perform. Many local people from surrounding places and villages visit the area of rann utsav.

If you opt for going to kutch then besides rann utsav, you will be able to visit religious places like Narayan Sarovar, Koteshwar, Mata Na Madh Aashapura, Ambe Dham near Mandvi, Swaminarayan & Trimandir Temples at Bhuj, etc. Have a NIce trip.
