“Are you a beach person or a mountain person?” ugh! The cliché question. But if you happen to be a beach person, we have another gem of a place other than Goa. This state is bounded primarily by Pakistan to the northwest and by the Indian states of Rajasthan, to the North, Madhya Pradesh to the east, and Maharashtra to the southeast. Did we give enough clues for you to decode the state? Yes, we are talking about Gujarat, it also happens to share a small segment of its southwestern border with the Indian Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, and together with the Arabian Sea, and also surrounds the territory of Daman and Diu.
As the coastline of Gujarat extends as long as 1666 Km, hence it is a warm state, therefore the winters are quite pleasant. During summers, the temperature rises as high as 41 degrees C in the daytime, and at night it is around 29 degrees Celsius.
