  1. Hi gautam, great post. Is this doable alone?
    I havent planned much yet and looking to leave tomorrow evening at 9.30pm by bus from vadodara looking to get to bhuj for 8am.
    I have travelled in SE Asia and wonder if it will be as easy ??

  2. Hey Gautam,

    Great post, quite helpful for planning our trip. I have two more questions. Is it possible to reach Chobari from Bhuj (our bus will drop us in Bhuj) via public transport (bus)?
    And if yes, can we get rental bikes in chobari to travel around (dholavira)?
