Visit to Gujrat for 8-10 days trip plan

Can anyone suggest me a trip plan to must see places of Gujrat for 8 days to 10 days from kolkata? I am planning to reach Ahmedabad and also come back from Ahmedabad

Dwarka is a must and we can stay 1N at Dwarka. Also my old mother will be travelling with me hence making long bus trips is not possible. Train and car is fine.

Please help

Hi Pratik

Thanks a lot for your message, I find your info very useful as I am a first time visitor to Gujrat

One clarification, I will be travelling to and fro by flight so is it possible to land in Ahmedabad and then go to Jamnagar by car/ taxi? How will that take?

One more question Pratik, is it possible to include Rajkot and Amba Devi Temple? Is there anything at all to see in Rajkot? Also where to fit in Diu visit if I want to do so?

For Mumbai to Surat :

Popular travels : Neeta, Eagle, SRS, Paulo, Patel,

Distance : 5-6 hours in Volvo bus

Any bus going to Ahmedabad will cover Surat by road. so you have plenty of options (a bus at each half hour available)

For Surat to Jamnagar :

Distance : 9-10 hours by road, overnight journey will be better option

Limited buses to direct Jamangar, better to go Rajkot 1st and then Jamnagar.

For Rajkot :

Volvo buses are available from Surat. you can get cheaper option if you choose Non a/c sleeper bus. (check with redbus)

From Rajkot :

Volvo and other buses available from ring road

distance : 1-2 hour by road.
