Quite interesting but different from what we had imagined after reading the guide :"a mirage rising up from the desert" ; we would have stayed longer and gone into shops but we found the pressure of the shop keepers and street vendors annoying. A taxi...More

We stayed in a wonderful boutique hotel in the Fort (Himmat Niwas). The Fort itself, with its winding cobblestone streets (more like alleyways), is charming and safe. The shops and restaurants are plenty, and one could spend an entire day exploring. Be sure to look...More

The place is nice and clear, specially in the morning when you still can barely find some vendors on the street. If you go by mid afternoon it becomes a hell with people trying to sell you things at all time. This is one of...More

Fort is in a good condition although some improvements could still be done. I recommend Museum even if the price is quite high for India (600 INR, including audio guide and camera). Audio guide is great!

Its a very good month to visit. Not only will you be rewarded with Holi, but the tourist season is beginning to wind down so not too crowded. It is beginning to warm up though
Request you all to review my itenarary. 1. Reach Jaisalmer at 0600 by train. 2. Get fresh, have breakfast and leave the guest house by 0800. 3. Visit the Jain temple 4. Visit the Sonar Killa (Fort) at 0900. Go for audio tour. visit the palaces inside the fort( can you please name the palaces inside the fort?) End the visit till 1300. ....4 hours sufficient???? 5. Have lunch and Leave for Desert Safari at 1400 6. Night in the desert 7. Next day arrive back in the morning at 1100. Get ready, have lunch and out for rest of the sightseeing by1300 8. Take auto and go to the war museum and back by 1530. (2.5 hrs sufficient for the to and fro journey and the museum visit?????) 9. visit patwon ki haveli and salim singh haveli by 1730. 10. Go to Gadisar lake at sunset time (i think this is not a sunset point, but read the reviews that this is good place to visit in the evenings) 11. Go to desert cultural museum and attend the puppet show at 1900. 12. Walk in the markets and End the day with dinner at 2200. 13. Take the train for Bikaner at 2300. a. Is it worth going to the Desert national park if i am already spending 1 night in desert safari? b. Read from reviews here that salim singh haveli and nathmalji ki haveli are average places and can be skipped. Is it correct? c. Can Bada baug be accommodated anywhere in the itinerary or it is worth a skip? Since, i dont have family and ladies along with me in this trip, i believe i wont waste time in the movement, local transport, eating joints and getting ready. Please advice
