    • Elephant visit

      by travelgypsy56 Online Now Sep 26, 2016 at 8:47 AM

      We will be in Jaipur in December and are having a hard time deciding between visiting Elephant Joy or Elephantastic. Any help or advice is appreciated!!! We do not want to visit a place where the elephants are shackled or used as a work animal; purely rescued and loved is what we are looking for. Thanks everyone!

    • Sanganer and puppets

      by margaretc40 Online Now Sep 17, 2016 at 12:17 AM

      I'll be staying at Bani Park so wondering if I should, on arrival at the airport, take advantage of Sanganer's proximity and ask the state tour desk to recommend a taxi tour (?1 hour) of the cloth- and paper-making area, thence to Bani Park (with my suitcase). Wondering about feasibility/advisability and cost.

      I'm also keen on puppets and wonder where I could see performances.

    • transport to bundi

      by margaretc40 Online Now Aug 22, 2016 at 9:11 PM

      I'm tempted to get a taxi from Jaipur to Bundi if it's safe to do so. Also wondering about a taxi Bundi to Sanganer; this might be more sensible than retracing to Jaipur, then bus to Sanganer - which I imagine would probably be a full day excursion.

      To do Jaipur?

      by roamer61 Online Now Mar 30, 2014 at 3:23 PM

      I am looking at a prospective itinerary that would be Delhi-Agra-a side trip to Bharaptur-Gwalior-Orcha-Varanasi-Delhi.
      Originally, was looking at the Golden triangle first before heading in that direction. Is Jaipur a must do? Some sources on IndiaMike say it can be skipped over.

      Best company tours doing Golden triangle (not private tours)

      by aortser Online Now Feb 6, 2013 at 10:27 AM


      We are 4 friends on their mid-thirties who are planning to do the Golden triangle (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur).

      We are looking for a very good company organising this tour, including the transport among the cities so that to show us
      the nice spots on the way.

      We are not looking for a private tour, but to be with other people in the group (preferably people of our age, or at least not families).

      We heard Trinetra is good but they don't reply to our e-mails.

      Is there any company you could recommend us?

      Many thanks for the advice.

      I will love to know about trains and buses from Agra to Jaipur. Are trains better from Agra to Jaipur more specifically or buses? What's the time difference? What are the timings?

      How much is the cost of a ticket for Jaipur from Agra, both train and bus costs separately.

      Is there any good cheap accommodation in Jaipur? What all can be done in Jaipur? Are there some places in Rajasthan, which are doable within a few hours from Jaipur, and yet be worth visiting?

    • Jaipur in Late December- 25-30

      by veejphoto Online Now Sep 12, 2012 at 1:38 PM

      Hi we're planning on a 5 day visit to Jaipur in late December 2012, and while booking the hotels/resorts we got excited by the pools as we are pool enthusiasts!

      We booked the Le Meridian which seems fantastic and has a beautiful pool also. Then it clicked into me to check the tempratures during the winter months for Jaipur and apparently it's max is about 25C and lows are 8c average.

      Now that seems a bit cool for pools especially if they are not heated pools, or am I wrong and the pools in Jaipur in the winter months are still comfy?

      Choosing the hotel with a beautiful pool was a big part of our selection, now if the pool is not comfy do you think 5 nights in Jaipur with 2 kids (11 & 14) would be too much? If the pool is not available are there other activities and leisure items to take in? we don't like rushing in sight seeing excursions, therefore we were planning the 5 nights to take in the culture and hum of the city. We originally thought lounging at the pool in the afternoons and taking in the attractions in the evenings day by day would be ideal but if the pools are not available or comfy is their an alternative relaxing activity ?

      So my questions are:

      Is the pool comfy in late December?

      If Yes- then that's it 5 nights are rocking !!

      If No- then are 5 nights too much for the relaxed stay, especially with little ones with allot of energy to burn.
