The land of never-ending diversity, Rajasthan is perhaps the most vibrant Indian state which attracts innumerable domestic and international travel enthusiasts from all corners of the world.
Be it its massive forts or celestial palaces; or affable people or delectable cuisine, there’s something in this parched, beautiful state that casts a spell so magnetic that tourists always return to Rajasthan to quench their thirst and tread through its alluring landscape.
Rajasthan’s heavenly rhythm and resonance have found their way into the hearts of numerous international tourists. Let’s take a look at some of the destinations which are almost always overflowing with international tourists.
1. Jaipur: The capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur is often referred to as the gateway to Rajasthan. Since it’s the nearest prominent city to India’s capital, Delhi, most of the enchanting journeys across rustic Rajasthan begin at Jaipur.
Jaipur also has an airport open to international traffic, so, just in case you wish to strike Delhi off your go-to list (which, of course, is not recommended at all), you can jump directly to Jaipur as well.
Jaipur has always been among the best places in Asia for travellers and has something on offer for almost everyone under the sun – from backpackers to well-off tourists.
2. Udaipur: While some fancy calling Udaipur the ‘Venice of the East’, which, without a doubt is not an exaggeration, I’d just suffice by calling it the lake city of Rajasthan. Unlike any other city in Rajasthan, Udaipur has a setting of romance spreading far and wide. It’s also home to Taj Lake Palace, which is often denominated as the most romantic hotel in the world.
With exquisite monuments rendering a sense of aestheticism and colossal forts exhibiting architectural brilliance, Udaipur is inundated with tourists throughout the year.
3. Jodhpur: Famously known among the international tourists as the ‘Gateway to Thar’, the blue city of Jodhpur is a marvelous blend of the classical and the contemporary. It is the second largest city in Rajasthan and is home to the imposing and impregnable Mehrangarh Fort overlooking the indigo-hued city.
Jodhpur is the perfect reflection of the erstwhile princely era against the backdrop of Thar Desert and is a wonderful opportunity to delve into Rajasthan’s immensely rich past.
While moving from Jodhpur to Udaipur, which is a popular way to meander across Rajasthan, one should definitely check into Rawla Narlai. It’s a heavenly boutique resort tucked away in tranquility away from the commonplace chaos.
The old world charm of Rawla Narlai is unlike any other heritage resort in Rajasthan and that makes it one of the best destinations for quick getaways and retreats between Jodhpur and Udaipur.
