Gujarat is a happy land. You meet helpful people round every corner, smiling and ready to help. It is boisterous in colour and sound, simple in its living and always has a homely feeling to it. And yet, surprisingly, it is not as discovered as it should be.
Ahmedabad’s architectural wonders are at par with the gastronomical treats it has to offer. To be fair, whole of Gujarat is one big food festival! Enjoy the cuisines of each region as you explore this state full of variations.
The Rann of Kutch with its unparallel white salt desert provides a stark contrast to the beautiful beaches of Mandvi. The home of Asiatic Lions of Gir isn’t far from the legendary Somnath temple on the beautiful beach. And the Falmingoes in Little Rann of Kutch spend the winters alongside the endangered Wild Ass. It is actually pretty surprising to see the landscapes change so drastically, so quickly.
The architecture of Rajkot Havelis, having the Parsee and British influence, is an example of how this state has always merged the best of old and new. Visit Porbandar, the janmabhoomi of Mahatma and Dwarka, the karmabhoomi of Krishna – two strategists, who shaped our nation and its ideologies. The art and crafts of Gujarat are enough to keep you occupied for life. Watch with fascination and shop like there is no tomorrow.
Thanks to F5 for such great and meticulous planning. For once we didn’t have to worry about planning and details and really have vacation the way it was meant to be. The stay, follow ups, places of visit, suggestion on food places and shopping was all fantastic. It’s a different feeling and experience we as family had all together. F5 gave us not just vacation experience but also an experience of local living and in that sense it was a true experiential travel. Thank you girls… We just loved every bit of our vacation… kudos to you guys !!!
