Are you looking for an off-beat trip? Gujarat is a great destination for travelers wanting  to have an enriching cultural experience, from the historical sabarmati ashram to beautiful white desert in Kutcch. Gujarat is home to some of the most amazing landscapes and long stretches of coastline.

Bruce began his trip in Mumbai, and then made his way via flight to Vijay Vilas Palace on Mandvi beach. Next he made his way via a short drive to the ‘The White Desert’ popularly known as ‘The Great Rann of Kutch’  in The Thar Desert of Gujarat. Bruce also
visited Zainabad in The Little Rann of Kutch.

Bruce then visited Ahmedabad, the largest city in Gujarat. The old town of Ahmedabad is also known for its interesting Mughal architecture. The Sabarmati Ashram,  the residence of Mahatma Gandhi is also very popular among travelers.  Bruce later traveled to Pushkar and Jodhpur in Rajasthan before flying to Delhi at the end of his trip.

For Bruce this was his second time to India and his priority was to have a comfortable trip. He traveled in a combination of car hires and flights. He stayed at a combination of luxury hotels and some charming bed and breakfasts.

If you’re on a tighter budget, we can customize the trip. We have options for cheaper travel (bus) and stay (homestays and hostels) to suit all needs.

    Maybe on the first look it looks just like a small town lost in the dessert but Pushkar, a pilgrimage town halfway between Jaipur and Jodhpur has a lot to offer. It has an equally spiritual vibe like Varanasi but is far less crowded and chaotic

    Day 14-15    Jodhpur
    Stay at Raas

    Due to its numerous blue houses in the old part of Jodhpur, this city in the dessert is often referred to as the “Blue City”. The second biggest city in Rajasthan is famous for the Mehrangarh Fort, one of the largest in India, and is an interesting old city to experience.
