Plan Your Ahmedabad Holiday
The summers in India tend to be particularly hot, so it would be wise to look for flight deals to Ahmedabad during the months from November to March. Although it is high season, it will not be especially difficult to find cheap hotels in Ahmedabad since many tourists opt for Delhi, Kanpur or Mumbai instead. This also means that youâ€™ll have the opportunity to calmly take in the city without all the crowds.
If you decide to book your tickets to Ahmedabad during the winter, youâ€™ll be able to experience a very special event: the International Kite Festival. For three days the sky is alive with a kaleidoscope of colour and, like so many other visitors, you may find it impossible to resist flying your own kite.
