Bikaner Tourism Guide

This Bikaner travel guide aims to familiarize you with all the intricate nuances of the city. Bikaner is one of the most beautiful and historically significant cities of Rajasthan. Bikaner tourism promises to offer you a host of amazing sights to see and activities to indulge in. The undulating sand dunes of Bikaner will take you to a magical place, offering families, solo travelers, honeymooners and groups of friends an escape into a picturesque setting. Bikaner tourism brings you face to face with magnificent forts and opulent palaces, shifting sand dunes, vibrant marketplaces, and a local cuisine to make you salivate for more. Almost all of the city is a historical site by itself, with even the plainest of haveli's and houses having ancient intricately carved jharokhas. The old world charm of the city will somewhat bring to life the regal era of the kings of Bikaner. <readmore> The best time to visit Bikaner is during October to February, when the weather is cooler and much more pleasant than the summers. Visiting the city during the monsoon season is not a bad idea, considering the temperatures are lesser as compared to the summers, even though the humidity might be a problem. Visiting Bikaner during the summers is not advisable unless you are willing to bear the scorching desert sun. The discounts offered during the off-season here might make it worth your while though. Your Bikaner tour should ideally include a visit and stay at the much acclaimed Thar Desert. A night camping under the stars with only the wind for the company is sure to be one of the most surreal experiences of your trip to Bikaner. Also, try to visit one of the local villages near the desert, to take a look at their daily way of life. It is very common to find horse-drawn carriages on the roads, along with the cars, vying for space and attention. Make sure to enjoy at least one ride in a horse-drawn carriage ride.

Best Bikaner Travel Guide

But tourism in Bikaner is not limited to just desert safari or visiting the opulent palaces and forts. It also offers tourists a chance to get to know the rural Rajasthan. Despite being one of the largest cities and a popular tourist destination, Bikaner still remains charmingly behind in a few modern developments. Think of Bikaner as a breath of fresh air among all the hustle bustle of the other more popular and modernized cities of Rajasthan.

When you travel to Bikaner, remember that you are visiting the city of Usta Art, which is a unique art form that involves embossed geometric and floral patterns, along with layers of gold. Try to purchase a souvenir of Usta Art to remember the city by.

Finally, on your Bikaner city tour, it would be nearly sacrilegious to not include some time devoted simply to tasting some of the most delicious and also some of the most spicy dishes of all times. Remember to pack some of the snacks to take back home.

When on your Bikaner trip, it is a must that you plan your itinerary in a way that gives you a couple of leisure days along with days of sightseeing. You can enjoy the leisure days exploring the city on your own.
