As it is that time of the year for the Rann Utsav and Festa De Diu, RoadtoTaste brings to you the 5 day itinerary of the two grand magical celebrations of art, music and cultural extravaganza from the last year. We were married for 11 months in December, 2015 and as our anniversary was approaching, we decided to celebrate this special week of togetherness in Rann of Kutch and Diu exploring the much talked about Rann Utsav and Festa De Diu.
Managing our travel plans along with a full time job has always been difficult for us but as they say, luck favors the brave; we don't miss out on our trips at all. We sneaked out of our workplace a bit early and rushed directly to the airport to board a flight to Ahmedabad.
It was a 5 road trip exploring Gujarat along with Diu. We started early morning from Ahmedabad for Dhordo Village. This is the place which hosts the TentCity, a city made of tent houses on a land in the middle of a huge backdrop. The first feel when you get while entering the tent city is that of a princely state in the middle of a desert. The Rann Utsav is celebrated from October to March every year and is a perfect amalgamation of art and culture showcasing the ethnicity of Gujarat on a grand scale.
