Need to Plan a Trip to Jaisalmer during Christmas 2011

Hi:

Need to Plan a Trip to Jaisalmer during Christmas 2011

Will be driving from Delhi. Plan to reach Jaisalmer on 24th Dec 2011.

Stay for 2-3 Days. Suggest places to see & things to do while there. I have kids 5 & 11 years old.

Want to see and feel the real Rajasthan.

Also suggest some nice place to stay, would like to stay away from the hustle bustle of the city. The hotel has to be nice. Also open to luxary tents/huts in the middle of desert. Budget is <=25K INR.

Hello Sir

Jaisalmer is a nice option to spend X mas and new Year but at same time rates really goes high from 22 Dec to 3 Jan . so i would advice you to book your hotels well in advance ..at earliest before everything sold out .. you may also send mail on mail@travelmypassion.com for good rates for tents and Hotels.

All the best for your Journey. .

I think its very late to book rooms for christmas. I wrote to 14 Hotel about 10 days back only 4 of them got back and they were all exorbitant.

Please write to Hotels and see availability before finalising your plans.
