Behind the breathtaking beautiful facade, expect to find contradictions to the ordinary and mundane aspects of vacationing. Wherever you travel, particularly when you escape from the popular tourist destinations, you will come across the unexpected, whether it is a local fair or a bustling bazaar or mind-blowing architectural wonders. The mood and the rhythm of the countryside changes from one region to another, and from season to season.It is a land of magical fantasies that remain a lifetime memory.

Traveling within the State

Visitors coming from overseas can choose to come via Delhi or Mumbai, with Delhi being closer, and providing the ideal entry point through Jaipur. From Mumbai, the entry point into Rajasthan is Udaipur. The only other national airport used for civil aviation services is at Jodhpur. All points within the state are connected by both road and rail. While railway connections offer convenient overnighters, reservations are necessary. Most principal road heads are an average five-hour journey apart, making intra-state travel convenient. Scheduled tourist bus services are available, and tourist cars can be hired.

Rajasthan is visitor-friendly. Credit cards are accepted in most tourist towns, and certainly at hotels and shops. For visitors wary of the local cuisine, continental cuisine is widely available: where it may fail to be authentic, or come up to gourmet standards, it will most certainly offer the familiar taste of home. Bottled mineral water is widely available. The state has an extensive network of postal services and banks, as well as telecommunication links with the rest of the world. While it may not lack in modern amenities, Rajasthan's flavor is delightfully medieval - truly a place where time, as the cliché goes, has stood still.
