Since it was Dussehra there were many small Ravan here there on roads the entire city was colorful and busy so we planned on returning back and pack our stuff and head to the railway station to catch our train back to Indore.
Expense: 350 per person (local transport) + food
To sum our trip it was short but diverse. The best part of this trip was its experiential diversity. Where Somnath brings out the spiritual side Diu brings out the happening side. Porbandar takes you for a ride in the history and Dwarka mesmerizes you with India's rich culture.
If you have limited time but want to enjoy heritage, be lost into spirituality, explore the wildlife and relax your mind do visit this part of the country.
-> One alternative could be to start the trip from Dwarka. Early morning train from Ahmedabad will drop you at Dwarka in the afternoon from where you can visit local temples and visit Dwarka. Next day early morning visit bet Dwarka and Nageshwar and leave for Somnath visiting Porbandar and other temple. Stay the night and next day visit Diu and return from Somnath next morning.
-> If you travel after Diwali which is the best season, Gir National Park will be open and you can watch the light and sound show at Somnath temple too.
-> Each place (Somnath, Diu and Dwarka is worth spending one full day) so if you have time plan to stay longer.
-> My best pick from the trip will be sunset at Gomti River. Meeting of river with ocean and setting of sum is a once in a lifetime experience
-> Local food in Gujarat is a must to have. Ditch expensive restaurants and go for street food (Dhokala, khandvi, jalebi, khaman, handvo and so much more) and do have a Gujarati Thali
-> Lastly I would suggest not to miss Diu if you love peace. The place is clean, less crowded and very beautiful.
