  • How to get around?

    Jaipur Transportation

    I've just had a great experience in India, visiting the "Golden triangle" among Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Unforgettable views and monuments (not only Taj Mahal!!!), excellent food and friendly people. Especially if you do not have too much time, you definitely need a taxi (do not even try to rent a car unless you are used to the chaotic indian...

    Jaipur Transportation

    You can get an elephant ride up the hill to the Amber Fort - however, you may want to walk as the queue is often over an hour long. A lot of people worry about the well being of the elephants. I don't know the entire situation, but I was told by several people that the elephants now only do a small amount of trips up and down the hill each day...

    By luck I found a great guide and driver for around Rajasthan. Based in Jaipur, Gopal runs India Tour Car Driver, a great way of seeing the city and getting around Rajasthan as well. I don't usually hire guides or drivers, preferring to find my own way around, and usually getting lost in the process. But in this case I can highly reccommend it....

  • Indian Railways - A Great Way to Travel

    I travelled all over Rajasthan by train. And not the palace on wheels. I took the regular Indian railways trains. I have always held IR in great esteem. The links are great, trains are on time at least 90% of the time and if you travel by AC 2 or AC3 then you get out of the train relaxed, refreshed and well fed. The catering on most trains is above...

  • Getting around

    there are three ways to go - train, bus or car. Trains are quick, safe and comforable. Easy to book a ticket. My choice for travelling anywhere in IndiaBus travel around Rajasthan is a haphazard but never dull affair. Some buses are clean, air-conditioned, and its possible to book the preferred seat. We usually booked the front seats (AA) which...

The coaches with 4 double-bed chambers were complete with contemporary facilities like intercom, channel music, attached toilets, shower, running hot and cold water and floor covering. Then, there were saloons also...

  • Rajasthan-Tour with Sushil

    In September 2006 we were in Rajasthan for 3 weeks. Sushil was our guide and driver for the whole time. He prepared a wonderful tour for us. He showed us many things, which ‘normal’ tourists cannot see. The whole tour was well-organised (hotels, sight-seeing, guides in the cities).Beside cultural climaxes (Taj-Mahal, Hawa Mahal), Sushil also...

We found a fabulous driver through one of these forums and wanted to recommend him to anyone traveling to Delhi-Rajastan.As a female arriving alone into Delhi in the middle of the night I was a bit nervous about getting into a vehicle not only with someone I did not know but in a very foreign country. Sushil...

    Can catch a luxury coach from a main station like Ahmedabad, unless you can arrived in Delhi, or Rajasthan itself.Once at the given city, always hire a local rixa to take you around the tourist attractions. They will have a printed itinerary card showing you all the stops. And can take your time at the stops.

  • Cycle-rickshaw

    Call me crazy, but the highlight to the city of Jaipur was a ride in a cycle rickshaw. It marked the first time I've ridden on one. The driver took me across downtown and back to my hotel on this vehicle that sole power was the mighty legs that moved the pedals, chains, and wheels. It was an interesting experience. In retrospect, riding a cycle...

  • Touring India on a motorbike

    An interesting way to see India is on a motorcycle. Some tourists actually plan their trip around this very thing… they buy or rent a Royal Enfield and hit the road. Mind you, driving in India is dangerous so take it easy will ya :)! The best place to start looking for a bike if you’re in a rush is probably your hotel. If you want a good deal,...

  • Train Stations and Foreign Counters

    At times, the trains stations themselves are a site to see. A good example is the Victoria Terminus or CST (Chhatrapati Sivaji Terminus) in Mumbai, which is said to be the most impressive show of Victorian Gothic architecture in India. It certainly is one of the most beautiful train stations I?ve seen. As in many other stations across India, you...

  • Buses ? Long Distance State Ran Buses

    Although not in Rajasthan, this annectode is a great story for those planning to take the local buses (not delux), which are similar to the school buses used in Central America. Anyway, read on... My first long bus in India was from Aurangabad to the state of Gujarat. I wasn't sure what I was getting into as I waited for my bus in the messy state...

  • Sleeper Class - Train Travel

    Train travel is an experience in and on itself. While in India, I got used to traveling rough. The rides were always interesting. For long trips, I usually took the sleeper class service, which provides a bed in an open wagon. The wagon holds about 50 or so beds spread across in several tier beds plus an extra 2 tier bed system across the hall from...
