TRAVEL INFORMATION

HOW TO GET THERE


AIR: Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur lies on the Indian airlines route that links Delhi to Bombay..

RAIL Most of Rajasthan is accessible by a network of rail services. An excellent connection to Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, from Delhi is the Pink City Express (5 hours run) which is a vestibuled, chair-seating rail service. Other places are also linked by passenger and express trains. Since rail journeys are usually long because of the distances involved, it is advisable to carry light snacks and water bottles as most stations on route do not serve much.

WHAT TO BUY

The bazaar around Hawa Mahal and Bari Chaupar, known for local crafts. In 1655 The British explorer Terry remarked of India; 'the natives there show very much ingenuity in their curious manufactures, as in their silk stuffs which they most artificially weave, some very neatly mingled with silver or gold or both. They make likewise excellent carpets, cabinets, boxes, trunks, curiously wrought within and without, inlaid with elephants teeth or mother of pearl, ebony, tortoiseshell or wire'. This holds true equally for India today. Visitors would do well to explore the footpaths and smaller markets.

WHAT TO WEAR

Woollens during winter and cottons in summer months. Best season to go from September to March.
