1. Accommodation in Rajasthan

Over time, Rajasthan has turned into an important tourist destination in India inviting travelers from all across the world which has led to better accommodation facilities in the state. You can choose from the wide range of accommodation types from luxury resorts to heritage hotels to small havelis to guest houses to home-stays. Whatever suits your comfort and budget will be yours! However, make sure to book hotels in advance as there’s rush during peak season.

2. Shopping in Rajasthan

There are a lot of places for shopping in the state. If you are on a tour of Rajasthan from Delhi, being a delhite you probably would be aware of the popular shopping streets like Johari Bazaar in Jaipur, Nayi sadak and Clock Tower in Jodhpur, MG Road in Bikaner, Bada Bazar in Udaipur and Sadar Bazar in Jaisalmer. You never heard about these? Well, now you know about it all!

3. Famous food in Rajasthan

Rajasthan offers all kinds of cuisine as now it is one of the top tourist attractions in the country. However the traditional food of the state stands unique from any other dishes served in the hotels, streets or homes. Some of the best Rajasthani food that you must try includes Dal Baati Churma, Gatte ki Sabzi, Pyaaz Kachori and Laal Maas.

In Chokhi Dhani near Jaipur, the thaali there is vegetarian and absolutely humongous. It starts with 9–10 absolutely varying dishes all from Rajasthan. You eat and you eat till you can eat no more. And then you turn around to tell your partner that and what do you know? The servers sneak more food on to your plate. Food just keeps coming on and they won’t let you get up. Each dish tastier than the previous one. Divine, fresh food!

4. Best Time to Visit Rajasthan

The first thing that strikes one's mind is what would be the best time to visit a destination and when the place is Rajasthan, the question becomes more prompt. To answer this direct, you must plan for a trip to Rajasthan in between the months of October and February. During winters the temperature drops to an average range of 25 degree Celsius to 12 degree Celsius.

The next best time to visit Rajasthan after if not winters could be monsoons. The sight of dancing peacocks is worth to behold my friend. So, if you cannot wait till October, book your tickets somewhere in between June and August this year. However, you might have to drop some of the places from the itinerary as they might be closed due to rains.

The summers in Jaipur and Rajasthan are very hot, with a temperature of almost 45 degree celsius, while the winters are cold and ideal for planning a trip to the pink city, since the temperature can even reach 8 degree celsius.

5. How many days are required to visit Rajasthan?

On your trip to Rajasthan, you have to cover four of its major cities – Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Udaipur. A trip skipping any of these cities in the Rajasthan packages won’t be called complete so make sure you spend a minimum of 2 nights in each city which makes the total number of days to 10 days. Your Rajasthan trip shouldn’t be less than 10-12 days if you want to cover all the major destinations across the state.

6. Transport in Rajasthan

Rajasthan has plenty of local transport systems such as tuk-tuk, e-Rickshaw, Local buses, tourist buses, auto-rickshaws, cabs and tourist permit cars. You can hire tourist cabs dealing with a tour operator for convenience, especially if you want to have a road trip.

7. How to reach Rajasthan?

Jaipur is well connected by air with Delhi, Calcutta, Bombay, Ahmedabad, Jodhpur and Udaipur. For the more daring, there is train connection with Delhi, Agra, Mumbai, Chennai, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

8. Clothing in Rajasthan

Last but in a way the most important point is what to wear when traveling in Rajasthan. If you are going on a trip to Rajasthan in December, pack some cotton wears and flats for the day and get woolens like hoodies, sweaters, jackets, etc. for the chilly nights.

We hope you have a great time exploring the royal land of culture and tradition with a Rajasthan holiday package. Get your rajasthan tour packages and tickets booked and head to the city.

My daughter is over in India at the moment on a university scholarship and I'm pretty sure she's going to visit Rajastan. Unfortunately, she won't be getting out too much as it is an education-based scholarship but boy am I jealous. I got a bit confused by the temperature - what's the average winter temperature?

Hailey said...
