Starting with the cute mountain scenery near Pushkar this video takes a tour of both Rajasthan and the ground transport on offer. Next up; travelling by elephant near Jaipur Amber Fort or going by foot into the Thar Desert. India isn"t India without a train hurtling past, but for something a little different try taking a rented jeep into the desert. Either that or travel by camel. Finally, the video shows some local sights in Jaipur and Pushkar. They"re the kind of sights you"ll be seeing a lot of from the window of your private transport.

About Rajasthan Province

Rajasthan is one of India"s most visited provinces and has a huge number of stand out attractions. However, all visitors are usually blown away by Rajasthan"s stunning landscape. Its red desert looks spectacular on photos and is very different from the sub tropical jungle India is more famous for. Visit the Pink City of Jaipur, the Blue City of Jodhpur, the City of Lakes Udaipur, or the huge sand dunes near Jaisalmer. Each has forts, temples, and palaces, but for a rural experience try Pushkar or Bundi, desert oases with camel markets and a very relaxed feel. However, it"s the journeys you"ll most remember. Travelling through the red desert is never boring, especially when it crosses stark mountain ranges and leaves you to the whims of nature.

Transport and Travel connections in Rajasthan Province

Rajasthan is a popular tourist destination and there are a variety of options for foreign travellers to get around. Roads through the desert are rough and bumpy but are bearable. Trains connect major destinations in central Rajasthan but can be slow when travelling to cities off the main north to south rail line. Planes connect the 3 main cities, and to see the best of the province in a limited time you can take a combination of the 3 types of transport.

Travel by plane

Rajasthan is a very large province and arriving by plane is cheap and saves a lot of travelling time.. Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur each have airports that connect to each other and the cities of Mumbai and Delhi. These airports are predominantly for tourist traffic and are not accessibly by public transport. They are close to the city and with a pre booked taxi it is inexpensive to travel to your hotel. As this province has lots  touristic activity ground transportation service companies in Rajasthan are widely available.

When you land at one of these airports you would be forgiven for thinking you"ve landed at a tiny bus station. Only a handful of flights arrive each day and touts will be waiting trying to convince you into their taxi. By pre booking your taxi you avoid the hassle of fighting away enthusiastic touts and you won"t get over charged.

Travel by Road

Bumping through the desert in a battered vehicle is the iconic Rajasthan experience. The roads aren"t great quality, but what were you expecting in an Indian desert. You"ll get covered in dust and a  sore bottom, but admiring the beauty of the red landscape more than makes up for it. Roads are quiet and this is one place in India where crashing doesn"t seem likely. A very popular way to experience Rajasthan is to hire a car with driver. You can customise your route and duration of trip and drivers know how to keep foreign passengers happy with countless tales and jokes.

Travel by Train

Trains connect the major cities of Rajasthan but as this is a sparsely populated province the service can be slow and doesn"t reach all destinations. The major train line runs north to south through the state, connecting Udaipur with Jaipur (7 hours) and Delhi (11 hours). From Jaipur it"s 5 hours to Jodhpur and 14 hours to Jaisalmer. This is one of the few provinces where it"s nice to travel during the day by train; little beats standing at the end of the carriage and watching the desert slowly pass by.

Eastern Rajasthan

Most tourists travelling overland come rom Delhi or Agra and arrive in Jaipur, the Pink City. This is the 3rd leg of the famous Golden Triangel circuit and has one of the largest concentrations of historic sites in the world. You"ll be wowed by palaces, impressed by forts, and get lost in temple complexes. This is the provincial capital and has a population of around 2 million. You"ll find vibrant bazaars and a large population of middle class young people wanting to drink masala chai (local tea) with you or invite you to a party.

Western Rajasthan

With its houses coloured all shades of blue Jodhpur is the kind of city that looks unreal on photos. From the ruins of Mehrangarh fort you look down on the buildings that gave Jodhpur its Blue City name. The fort dates back to 1458 and has never been taken by force. Even further west, near the border with Pakistan, is Jaisalmer and coming from Jodhpur you"ll enter the Thar desert. Inside its old fort is a living city of shops, houses, and hotels. But the main attraction is the desert and its from here that you can set off on a camel trek into golden sand dunes and camp beneath the stars.

Central Rajasthan

Central Rajasthan is full of small isolated towns with a distinctively laid back feel. Ajmer, Pushkar and Bundi are the kind of destinations you can cover in a day, but their atmosphere makes you want to stay forever. While they don"t have the wow factor of the province"s famous cities, you get the full desert experience by attending camel markets, taking a journey by donkey cart, and wandering down dusty streets.

Southern Rajasthan

Also known as the City of Lakes, Udaipur was the setting for the James Bond film Octopussy. It"s an old town located on a series of lakes that has been a rich foreigners playground for centuries. Romantic palaces and vivid gardens are its drawcard, as is the chance to really spoil yourself. In Udaipur you can eat at rooftop terraces overlooking the lake sunset, sleep in converted palace rooms, and pretend to be James Bond by taking a boat across the water.
