The “Pink City” of Jaipur is part of India’s famous Golden Triangle Tourist Circuit and was recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not surprisingly, the city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Rajasthan. It has many famous castles and palaces, most of which boast emerging views and extensive architecture. Being in Jaipur is especially enjoyable. Accommodation is reasonably priced and converted from many heritage properties, giving guests a very everyday experience!  Jaipur is also a fantastic place for shopping. 


The Landmark City Palace Complex, which stretches along the east coast of Pichola Lake, dominates the city, and the royal family still resides in a part of it. Many personal royal inheritances, family photographs, and other memorabilia are displayed in the City Palace Museum, giving Udaipur a very regular feel. You can even stay at City Palace!  Alternatively, there are Heritage hotels by the lake with amazing views, like Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel for a budget.


For most of the year, Pushkar is a sleepless small holy town that attracts lots of backpackers and hippie types. However, it survives when it arrives in the city of Pushkar Camel Fair for a few weeks in October or November. Pushkar is perfect for visiting any time of the year if you want to cool off. Sadly, the city is not what it used to be. Nowadays, Pushkar is much more Western and tourist-oriented. The priests (steps) at the bathing ghat are powerful in demanding grants. Avoid that area and go to the Pushkar market for some fun shopping instead!


Jaisalmer, a notable sandstone town that magically rises from the dunes of the Thar Desert, looks like this beautiful ancient fortress built on a straight 11 meters in. Inside the fort, there are living things and spells. It boasts palaces, several temples, and a few elegant mansions, as well as shops and other residences. The top things to do in Jaisalmer include the best part of the city and its surroundings. Stay in a hotel with views of the castle or desert camp.

If you are interested in a desert camel safari experience, Ocean without crowds and commercialization is an ideal option. This small town is about an hour and a half north of Jodhpur, on the way to Beacon, and surrounded by several dunes. Carved stone temples dating back to the eighth century are also interesting.
