Rajasthan is a state situated in North India. There are a total of 33 districts in Rajasthan. Sprawled over an area of 342,239 km², Rajasthan is the largest state of India as per the surface area.

Moreover, Rajasthan is also home to many nomadic tribes that are a major part of its total population. Some of the major cities of Rajasthan are Jaipur (capital), Jodhpur, Udaipur, Pushkar, Jaisalmer, Ajmer, Bikaner, Kota, etc. 

A colorful melange of opulence and royalty best exemplifies Rajasthan tourism with grand forts, desert safaris, fairytale palaces, and vibrant festivals all around. Set foot in the ‘Land of the Kings’ and explore the rich cultural heritage of this region where the Rajputs fought various grand battles. The tourist places in Rajasthan offer something or the other for travelers of all kinds. These places present a plethora of rich culture and heritage. Tourism in Rajasthan caters to couples, friends, and families who can enjoy a luxurious retreat in this medieval wonderland. So grab a Rajasthan tourism map and start discovering the largest state in India, and don’t forget to cover all of the popular destinations and be a part of its culture. Another thing that this state is most famous for is its folk songs. Most of these songs are foot-tapping numbers.

The best time to visit Rajasthan is in the winter season from October to March as the weather during this time is perfect for desert safaris, sightseeing tours, wildlife expeditions, and cultural tours.

Desert tours, camel rides, hot-air balloon rides, captivating folk dances, exquisite handicrafts, wildlife expeditions,  bustling marketplaces, and historical forts & palaces draw tourists to Rajasthan from every corner of the world. Rajasthan culture can be best explored by visiting Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Pushkar, etc. 

You can tread on the sands of time in the state by visiting the painted Havelis, the camel fairs, the medieval bazaars, glistening deserts, and the undulating Aravalli hills. Something you must experience here is savoring the Rajasthani specialty Ghevar while shopping for precious gemstones and handicrafts in the colorful bazaars.  

Make sure when you visit Rajasthan, you explore the major cities like the Pink city Jaipur, the Lake City of Udaipur, the Sun City Jodhpur, the Golden City Jaisalmer, and the Holy City of Pushkar. One of the most popular destinations for honeymoon in Rajasthan, Mount Abu is located about 4 hours away from Udaipur. Mount Abu is an ideal hill station to visit during summer in Rajasthan. Amer Fort, Hawa Mahal, City Palace Udaipur, Mehrangarh Fort, Ranthambore National Park, and Jantar Mantar in Jaipur are some of the best Rajasthan destinations for travelers.

    Trivedishishir's 4 days trip to Rajasthan

    The hotel condition was so bad that I had to move out from the hotel on the second day of the trip.I have asked for a 3 star hotel but the hotel provided was the worst in its segment. I had to move to other hotel which I booked on my own , causing a very high priced trip on my wallet . This all lead to a very unpleasant experience, the travel agent is very poor professionally. They have booked the restaurant upre for us where the car cudnt reach, I had to do auto from my own side. In complete guilt, Why did I go for a booking thru your app. No support, only talks.

    Indira's 5 days trip to Rajasthan

    The trip was overall well planned. I was connected to SANDEEP from Trippy holidays, who shared a good itinerary. He was quite helpful. The hotels provided was good decent breakfast. Only disappointing element was I had requested for a room with balcony or a nice view right from my plan initiation, it was promised to be done but was not done, despite multiple remainders. The driver Narendra was pretty friendly & knew the places well. The stay in Dream palace hotel Udaipur. Camel ride in Pushkar & the great shopping experience in Jaipur

    Mamatha's 6 days trip to Rajasthan

    We had a great trip to Rajasthan. It was well organised and managed by Travel Triangle. Cab driver was very resourceful person and went extra miles to cover all the locations and also other extra locations on the way so we didn't miss anything in our journey. He was very helpful and gave us great guidance on location. The hotel's could have been better and we'll arranged. Hotel in Jodhpur and Jaisalmer were not upto the mark. It could have been better. Journey was great. Overall a good trip. Jaisalmer camel ride and storm in desert was something to cherish for life long
