      Ahmedabad is a destination with multiple personalities, all of which are intriguing. A busy metropolis with a magnificent past, an interesting heritage and scenic landscapes, it's easy to see what lures tourists here. The legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, the beauty of textiles and crafts and the relics of history also make for interesting exploration. A reflection of culturally rich Gujarat, Ahmedabad will not fail to astound you.

    • Visit the Sabarmati Ashram (Gandhi Ashram).

      Later in the afternoon, proceed to visit the Sabarmati Ashram (Gandhi Ashram), the former residence of the Father of the Nation - Mahatma Gandhi. It is said that he chose this place, as it lies between a cemetery and a prison, and anyone who joined in the non-violent revolution would land up in one of the two places. This is the place from where he initiated the freedom movement, inspiring crores to stand up for their rights. You can find out more as you explore the museum, which is thought-provoking and informative.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Lemon Tree
  • Day 5
    Ahmedabad
    • Enjoy an early morning walking tour of Ahmedabad.

      What better way to immerse yourself in the local life than through an early morning walking tour?

      Go for a heritage walk through the old parts of the city. As you walk through the streets, watch the locals begin their day - a visit to a temple, feeding the birds and the cow, while some would be busy searching for the 'best stock' to invest in their regional daily newspaper.

      Watch for the affluent mansions that stand out with their wooden facade, flower sellers setting up their stalls, fruit and vegetable vendors decorating their carts, sweet and savoury shops busy replenish their counters with the most delectable regional specialties.

      We are sure you would be ravenously hungry by now for a good breakfast. Let's head back to the hotel.

    • Explore the city of Ahmedabad.

      Post breakfast, visit to the famous House of Mangaldas (The House of MG), a colonial style mansion replete with courtyards and verandah where you can relax and breathe in some fresh air. The House of MG is a typical rags-to-riches story of Mangaldas Girdhardas, who rose through the ranks to build this house in the city centre.

      Cruise through the beautiful open courtyards with an array of traditional flooring, the conventional Gujarati style wooden swings, a statue here and a sculpture there, some period furniture. What's more, you even get the opportunity to peep into a small textile gallery and admire beautiful heirlooms like Bandhej, Mata Ni Pachedi, Kalamkari and many more. It is a wonderful expression of rich Gujarati heritage, encapsulated in exotic colours, intricate designs and rich weaves.

      Later, eat as the locals do, at the traditional Vishalla Restaurant and enjoy a hearty meal with some typical local savouries and tea. Set amidst a typical rural setting, open and expansive, this place is a welcome departure from the busy city.

      Vishalla also prides itself on its presentation of Indian culture and tradition in its village-like environment with its museum of old utensils known as Vechaar (utensil museum), the only museum of its kind in the world. Designed and conceptualised by an interior designer, the museum displays a wide collection of utensils ranging from leaves and a gourd jug to stainless steel and glass utensils, metal utensils made of brass, copper, bronze, zinc and German silver, pots, spoons and vessels for churning buttermilk, etc. What makes it so memorable is that the food you now partake is also served in these utensils.

      Go around the hut-like museum and marvel at the inimitable beauty of these utensils that speak of the unmatched art and genius of mankind at a time when people did not have modern facilities. Being able to touch the exhibits is the best part of this visit and one of their crew members is always available with explanations to ensure you have a more fruitful visit.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Lemon Tree
  • Day 6
    Ahmedabad
    • Post breakfast, the day is at leisure to relax or you also have the option to select one of the exciting optional excursions crafted for you.

      You could choose to visit the only surviving Sun Temple in Modhera. It is one of the greatest monuments of the Solanki dynasty, whose rulers were believed to be descended from the sun. Its magnificence begins from the outside with the exterior that is intricately carved with demons and deities. Step inside to find 52 sculpted pillars depicting scenes from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, and a hall with 12 niches that represent the different monthly manifestations of Surya (the sun god).

      This is followed by a drive to an architectural wonder, Rani-ki-Vav - the Queen's of Stepwell. On the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, it is a perfect example of necessity leading to an invention wherein arid climate inspired the need for stepwells. The minute and exquisite carvings here are a testament to skilled craftsmanship.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Lemon Tree
  • Day 7
    Ahmedabad - Udaipur
    • Post a heavy breakfast, head to the 'City of Lakes', Udaipur (a journey of 260 km / approx. 6 hours drive) through the picturesque countryside of the Aravalli, past the villages of the Bhils - the warrior tribes.

      With stunning marble palaces overlooking pristine lakes, all surrounded by the omnipresent Aravalli Hills, Udaipur has all the ingredients of a romantic and dreamy destination. Everything you see, touch and smell in the Venice of the East will leave you wanting more.

Lattice balconies and intricately carved windows adorn the exterior of the grand palace, while sparkling mosaic tiles and stain glass embellish its interior.

      From the palace, we continue on to the old city market past the ancient Jagdish Temple. There are treasures to be found in this buzzing market, so watch out for colourful and interesting souvenirs that you could take back.

      Later in the afternoon, visit the Saheliyon Ki Bari, the Garden of the Maids of Honour, designed as a peaceful retreat outside the old city of Udaipur. Built by Maharana Sangram Singh II for the 48 girls that he received as part of his dowry, this quiet garden presents a perfect fusion of Indian and English architecture.

      Away from the city humdrum, a good spot to enjoy the tranquillity of lush green lawns, fountains, pools, flowers, trees and some marble art.
