Well, people stay in their homes on Diwali, but if you want to go outside with your family and celebrate Diwali, then that option is also available. In cities like Delhi, Kanpur, Lucknow, Mumbai, pollution increases during Diwali and in such a situation if you are planning to go out somewhere, then many places can become your option.

Kutch or Rann of Kutch is scheduled to open for tourists from November 12. It will be open for visitors from two days before Diwali till 28 February. As far as safety is concerned, according to a report, about 350 tents are available in Dhordo village of Kutch and all the disinfectants and cleaning processes are being done according to the guidelines of Kovid-19. Therefore, the plan to go to Kutch can prove to be good.
The beauty of Kutch in winter looks very good and in such a situation what to say if it is the time of Diwali. However, all visitors must follow the Kovid-19 protocol here. Masks, hand sanitizers and hygiene have to be taken care of.
Just as the Dasara (local name of Dussehra) festival is very famous in Kullu-Manali, similarly Diwali is also very special here. Although a program of firecrackers etc. is held in Solang Valley near the city of Manali, if you stay there, you may have to pay a little more. Resorts in that area are a bit expensive, so it would be better to stop at Manali Town and travel 35-40 kilometres from there to Solang.
Diwali glow is also very good in Manali Town and camp parties are also organized in different places. Although there is some restriction in all hotels due to Kovid-19, you can book a hotel safe for yourself before leaving and ask them about the Diwali party and camp party.
There is something else about celebrating Diwali in the streets of Varanasi or Banaras. Diwali of Varanasi is called Dev Diwali. After the aarti of Ganga Maa lakhs of lamps are given and the streets and ghats are decorated with light. The firecrackers are also burnt after worship. If you stay a few more days after the day of Diwali then you will also get a chance to stop at the Ganges Festival.
Before going to Varanasi, you have to keep in mind that it gets very crowded and if you fall in the Kovid-19 risk category, then avoid going here. Also, if you are taking cheap hotels here too, then take care of sanitation etc. very well.
Diwali is also celebrated in a very special way in Amritsar. It is also known as 'Bandi Chod Day'. It is believed that on the day of Diwali, the sixth Sikh Guru Hargobind ji and his disciples were released from prison. In Amritsar on the day of Diwali, kirtans are held everywhere and the Golden Temple is very beautifully decorated. It also has a different colour to celebrate Diwali in the cold weather between mustard fields.
Amritsar is bathed in deep light on the day of Diwali and you will get a lot of happiness seeing the atmosphere here. You will find hotels etc. with all facilities here.
The colours of Diwali are also different in Jaipur. Many celebrations start here from Dhanteras. After Dhanteras, many fireworks are seen in the Nahargarh Fort here.
