I suddenly was overjoyed to know that my one-week vacation was granted from office. I wasted no further time and planned a one week trip to the princely state of Rajasthan. Here is a travelogue for the same for your knowledge. I would also like to thank Rajputana Cabs team for their assistance in complete Rajasthan Tour in AC Car.
On day one of my trip, I took a flight from Delhi to Jodhpur and landed into the Blue City in the morning. There are lots to do in Jodhpur and several places to visit and explore. I stayed at the Taj Vivanta Palace which is a famous luxury hotel in Jodhpur. After some rest, I started in the evening for a stroll through the city. I was only able to visit the Kaylana Lake in the evening because I was exhausted with the entire journey.
A quick note – have a look at this Jaipur Ranthambore Taxi service by Rajputana Cabs which is quite popular among travelers exploring Jodhpur.
I went to the most famous attraction of Jodhpur, the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort. It is a spectacle to view the magnanimous Mehrangarh Fort, and it took me almost half of the day to explore the fort in detail. My next stop was at the Umaid Bhavan Palace. I explored the museums inside the palace and its artifacts. In the evening, I visit the Jaswant Thada and finally the Balsamand Lake. My trip of Jodhpur was almost over. I went off to bed to prepare for a new day in a new city.
My next visit was to Jaisalmer. I took a train from Jodhpur to travel to the Gateway of the Great Indian Desert-Thar. Several trains ply between Jaisalmer and Jodhpur. In Jaisalmer, I stayed at the Welcome Heritage Hotel which is a luxurious staying option in Jaisalmer. It is imperative to say that my next visit was at the Jaisalmer Fort which is more popularly known as the Golden Fort. I explored the other interesting places in Jaisalmer like Patwon ki Haveli, Salim Singh ki Haveli and also the Bada Bagh. The next day I went to the Sam sand dune which is a must visit place when one is in Jaisalmer. I soaked in the look and feel of the desert life and came back fulfilled with some life lasting memories.

On day five
I took a train to Bikaner. Bikaner is a heritage city with immensely popular tourist destinations like Junagarh Fort and the Jain temple of Bhandasar. There is also the Gajner Lake and Shri Laxminath temple. I stayed at the Raj Vilas Palace which is a luxurious and a heritage hotel. Bikaner for that matter is also a city of snacks. A lot of different varieties of snacks are available in Bikaner, which can truly be a feast for the food lovers. For me, it was the best holiday experience, visiting these three lovely cities of Rajasthan and exploring the unknown places within this beautiful state of India. Now it was time for me to go back to Delhi and join back my office to earn my regular bread and butter. One thing is for sure that the memories of these beautiful cities will remain with me forever.
