India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATI -

Neigh­bour­ing Ra­jasthan’s Mt. Abu in is one of the favourite week­end des­ti­na­tions for Gu­jaratis. A three­hour drive from Ahmed­abad takes you into the cool­ing val­ley of the Aravalli range. This hill re­treat sits along the Nakki Lake, a wooded wind­ing road takes you to the pin­na­cle Guru Shikhar. Mov­ing away from hills, try the 1600 km coast­line of Gu­jarat, drive to Mandvi and spend the night at the her­itage camp site at Vi­jay Vi­las Palace, Mandvi beach, Kutch. Vi­jay Vi­las is the res­i­dence of the Ma­harao of Kutch and was orig­i­nally a sum­mer palace for the royal fam­ily. You can also stay at green re­sorts near Vapi like the Penin­sula Kalay which is, on a forested is­land. You just have to step out of your room and onto the beach.
