"Nothing special at this destination"

Dahej is a sea zone with many big industrial complexes. There is nothing to enjoy. My journey was a business one. But all facilities are available here. Many hotels and shops are there. Hospital is available. You can go to see Dahej Port it is very good. Also there is sea nearby; the view is very good during high tide.

"Beautiful place in Gujarat."

The Port of Dahej is located in the Gulf of Cambay, at the junction of Guljaria and Ban Creek. It is a natural deep water port accommodating vessels of draft up to 25 meter. It is about 45 kilometres from Bharuch, which is now being connected to the Port of Dahej by a broad gauge rail siding with an initial capacity of 25-30 rakes a day. The nearest airports are at Ahmedabad, Surat and Baroda.
