कच्छ के आसपास के क्षेत्र को देखने और और यहाँ की जीवंत संस्कृति का अनुभव करने के लिये आपको कई जगहों पर जाना होगा। इसके लिए आपके पास खुद की गाड़ी होनी चाहिए। अगर आपके पास गाड़ी नहीं है तो भुज में किराए पर भी ले सकते हैं। तब आप धोर्डो के सफेद रण को देख पायेंगे और पास के बन्नी गाँवों में जा सकते हैं। रण उत्सव ने धोर्डो की लोकप्रयिता बढ़ती जा रही है और इसकी वजह है, यहाँ होने वाला रण फेस्टिवल।

Once you come out of Bhuj railway station you see a huge Rann utsav board outside. They have a reception area where you can wait with your luggage until the bus starts to take you to Rann utsav. The bus trip started around 1 and we reached Rann utsav around 2:00. We were taken to our tents and the lunch was provided in the tent only as it was after 2:30 PM. The Non- AC tents are extremely well maintained. All tents come with a attached bathroom. The toiletries are provided but i would suggest carrying your own.
We reached Dhordo village around 3pm in the afternoon and was welcomed warmly by the staff. The way we swiftly managed to check in showed the efficient management by the event management company Lallu Lal and Sons. We had our lunch before we started again for a quick tour of the city. The points of attraction included the Kala Dongar and the White Desert for watching the sunset. The tent city was lit up beautifully in the night and had some entertaining cultural programs for its guests. We spent the day well and enjoyed their lovely dinner before calling it a day as we had to start for Diu the next morning.
