So what happens when romance meets the royalty of Rajasthan? Read on to find out how Nilesh and his wife spent 8 amazing days in this colorful state.
Winter was coming to an end and I had about 8 days to spare for a lavish holiday. My wife and I got talking about where we should go and we landed on Rajasthan. Winter seemed like the perfect time to visit and soon we were looking for tickets. We were planning to explore all the major cities and enjoy a wholesome experience, not just of the architectural beauties but also take a peek into the culture and food there.
After browsing for some packages online, we came across TravelTriangle. We spent some time on the website and then eventually decided to go for a 7 nights and 8 days package to Rajasthan that covered Ranthambore, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, and Bikaner. We had options to customize the package and tailor it to our preferences which I think was a great touch. Before I go ahead, here are a few details of my trip.

Some experiences that will help you make the most of a romantic trip to Rajasthan
1. Ranthambhore: The Jungle Safari!
As we landed in Rajasthan, the first city on our list was Ranthambhore. We checked into our hotel and spent a little time relaxing. Later, we started for the Jungle Safari which we were quite excited for. It lasted for about 3 to 4 hours and we came across deers, monkeys and of course the majestic Bengal Tiger. We were lucky since we got quite a close look at all the animals. In the evening, we headed back to our hotel and enjoyed a lovely campfire dinner.
2. Jaipur: Exploring The Pink City!
On day 2, we packed our bags and geared up for a ride to Jaipur, We checked into our hotel, Indian Palace which was located on the outskirts and emitted a wonderful royal vibe as soon as we stepped in. We spent this particular day taking a tour of all the major hotspots in the city including the Hawa Mahal, City Palace, and a museum as well. In the evening we decided to visit the main market where you will find beautiful trinkets and souvenirs along with some colorful jewelry and accessories.
3. Jaipur: A Dive Into The Past
We woke up, enjoyed a hearty breakfast and made our way to Amber Fort in Jaipur. Since this day was all about history, we decided to learn more by hiring a guide. We did the same at Nahargarh fort which was our next stop for the day.
However, this was also the day of our anniversary and we had something special planned. In the evening we head to Taj Rambagh for a beautiful candle-light dinner. I would definitely suggest this if you are looking to spend some quiet time with your better half. The ambiance is simply wonderful while the food is fantastic. We ended our day on a happy note and called it a night.
4. Jodhpur: Collecting Our Blessings
On our fourth day, we woke up early in the morning since it was time for yet another road trip. We started on our way to Jodhpur and made a few stops in between. First was the famous Ajmer Dargah where we spent some time in solace. It was truly a serene experience and I understood why it was spoken about so much. We also visited Pushkar where we made a stop at the Pushkar temple and lake. Later, we checked into the Heritage Hotel in Jodhpur where the staff warmly welcomed us inside.
5. Jodhpur: Touring The City
Jodhpur truly has some mesmerizing sights to witness. We enjoyed some spectacular views of the entire city at the Mehrangarh Fort which our first stop for the day. We also visited the Umed Bhawan and Jaswant Thada as we toured around the city. By the evening, we were tired and decided to head back to the hotel for some rest after which we would start our trip to Jaisalmer.
6. Jaisalmer: The Desert Camp Experience
From the many places to visit in Rajasthan, I would definitely recommend adding Jaisalmer to your list. There is plenty to see here from the Jaisalmer Fort to the beautiful Gadi Sagar Lake. We also happen to visit Patwon ki Haveli and Bada bagh during our stay there. However, the highlight was the desert camp experience.
We went for a camel ride and enjoyed a thrilling desert safari experience at the camp. In the evening, live music, folk dance performances, and the fire show were just the cherry on top of the cake. You get an authentic Rajasthani experience and of all the things to do in Rajasthan, this is definitely the most fun-filled one.
7. Bikaner: A Day Well Spent!
The last city on our trip was Bikaner and we had a wonderful time there. We visited the famous Bikaner temple where we collected our blessings and spent some quiet time. Later, we head to the Junagarh Fort which is known for its stunning architecture. The intricate carving and detailing will simply captivate you. Another highlight of this city was it’s delicious food that one must try for sure!
