Rajasthan is a land of culture and heritage. The people of Rajasthan are very heart warming and wears a smile to welcome you. Rajasthan is one of the major tourism hubs in India for Inbound clients and hence Jaipur is a major junction city of Rajasthan. The colors, culture of Rajasthan is vibrant and colorful and enlightens up the people. One very unique aspect of Rajasthan is that you shall find the guides of all major languages as per your own mother tongue and they are so professional in their services. One should always hire guide services in Rajasthan to know more about each place and their aspect in the history, else you shall miss the major details and information of the city. The local markets of the city are brimming with people always eager to shop the local handicrafts and produce of Rajasthan.
The highways of Rajasthan have beautiful roads but wears a deserted looks. Take a note of the place where you take a halt and always ensure to stopover at major places with the public around. One concept which disappointed me in the local eateries on the highway was that they had two separate menu cards for Indians and Foreign Guests and each priced differently. The menu card for Foreign clients was 3x the price than the Indian client. The packed items were sold at 2 times or 3 times the MRP, which was actually very disheartening on how we are fooling our own guests only.
Pushkar is one place you will fall in love with due to its environment, comfort and safety for single travelers or women travelers. The streets are abuzzing til late nights and you will find everything in those streets for your comfort. And you will catch your hands at the most exquisite brands of cigarettes on the streets of Pushkar. The soulful music, hearty Italian eateries, and chilled out atmosphere makes you come to this place and spend some time.
The travelers should take a special caution on the heat if travelling in summers and should always carry hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. Avoid eating Rajasthani food at all times since it is loaded with clarified butter and difficult to digest. The drivers will take you around to various showrooms as per their set commissions but they are all National Handloom Industry and having a look is never bad. Always carry water. Be friendly to the local people around and they will be the most helpful people around. The major hotels and restaurants round the state are vegetarian, so enquire before you go.
October - March is the best time to see Rajasthan, however our summer experience was not bad either since we got hotels and transport at throwaway prices and we could see each and every place with more content due to less crowd.
