The recent inauguration of jetty and seaplane service connecting Sabarmati riverfront and Narmada River in the district will also contribute to and improve tourism in the region.
The Statue of Unity has opened up for tourists starting October 17 following all necessary guidelines. Now, OYO aims to bring the art and culture of Gujarat’s heritage to the travelers in Kevadia providing them with the essence of staying as a local. Travelers can experience the local cuisine, culture, rustic outdoors in the most authentic way.
OYO is witnessing a surge in demand for leisure travel across the country with states slowly unlocking their entry restrictions. The hotel chain is expecting tourists based in neighbouring cities including Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara to visit Kevadia for experiencing the hidden gems and local tourist attractions like Butterfly garden, Valley of Flowers, Cactus Garden and Khalvani Eco tourism site among others.
