Enjoy delicacies such as Bikaneri Bhujiya, Bikaner Chicken, Mirchi Vada, Ghewar, Kachori, Daal Baati Choorma and Jungle Maas when sampling the local cuisine of the city. You can also go for the Rajasthani Thali here, full of all the goodies that the city is famous for. Bikaneri food is pretty spicy, so if you don’t prefer that make sure to tell the guy preparing your food.

You can also find some great options in terms of handicrafts and home décor, apart from the usual knick knacks that tourist places are famous for.

Bikaner nightlife: Bikaner does have an exciting nightlife, but not in terms of pubs, bars and lounges. Instead, the nightlife in Bikaner is of the more adventurous kind, with night safaris and overnight desert camping. Imagine sleeping under a canopy of stars, while the sand dunes around you shift form from one place to another. The thrill of spending a night in the desert cannot be compared with the thrill of going to a pub for a couple of drinks. Make sure to indulge in desert camping when in Bikaner.

Horse carts are ideal for those looking for a more quaint experience, whereas autorickshaws and manual rickshaws are available for those in a hurry.
