Bharuch is connected to major locations in the country by the nearest airport, which is in Vadodara city, which lies at a distance of 130 kms. Moreover, Bharuch lies on the Western Railway corridor of Indian Railways and is connected via rail routes.
Kabirvad is amongst the many beautiful places to visit around Bharuch and is famous as the island of Banyan trees. In Hindusim, it is famous that a Banyan tree acts as a resting place for Lord Krishna. The major attraction of Kabirvad being a gigantic Banyan tree is said to be covering an area of around 3.5 acres. It is said that this is the place where the Hindu Saint Kabir Das used to practice meditation and that the tree grew from a meswak stick (which the saint used for brushing his teeth).
Kabirvad also holds significance because of the Lotus shaped marble temple, Kabir Museum and the boat ride in river Narmada.
