Hey Travelbuddies out there....Finally am set to head for my Trip to Rajasthan this February...Though m having a huge time and budget constraint but am gonna do this any how..this time....as i will be busy with my dentistry degree for the coming three years

here is the plan ---

13 Feb - Reach Jodhpur at Nite
14 Feb (am looking for a valentine 😉 --- See around Jodhpur from Morning to Evening
Late Evening Catch a train to Jaisalmer and reach Jaisalmer on 15 Early morning

15 feb - Jaisalmer -- I guess the international festival is starting on that day...so i will be taking a part in it...
15 - 16 - 17 Feb -- See around Jaisalmer, and also go to famous Longewala and Tanot which is amidst the REAL DESERT

17 Feb - Late Evening -- Catch a train to Bikaner

18 Early morning -- Reach Bikaner
18 day --- Spend time in Bikaner and visit the famous Karni Mata Temple (Rat Temple)
18 Night -- Head for Ajmer
19 Early morning - Reach Ajmer, visit the Shrine of Chishti and move for Pushkar

19 Day -- Roam around in Pushkar and do sightseeing....
19 Evening -- Leave for Jaipur
Arrive Jaipur on 20th Morning
--> I have already seen Jaipur twice but would be going to places again may be
Leave from Jaipur 20th Evening to reach Ranthambhore in 2 hours

Stay at Ranthambhore for the night and go for Tiger safari on 21 Morning and 21 evening...
once done with that, catch either a connectiing train or bus for AGRA on 21 nite itself...(to save hotel expenses)

22 Feb - Agra - Visit Tajmahal...(been there once though)

22 Feb - Evening, leave for New Delhi

23 Feb - See around delhi and meet some old pals....

24 Feb -- Attend an old friend's INDIAN WEDDING :D in New Delhi,

25 Feb -- Head for Home 😊....

add your suggestions to it people....i know it may sound like a very quick trip but am low on time plus i dont want to spend more time then required at one place as it really sends the accomodation costs high...and yeah m looking out for travelmates too...to share the costs and experiences of this trip...

Hello Anuj 😊

It is a whirlwind trip. Arent you Indian? You have decades to see India, and it will be relatively easy for you, since you live there.

I dont know why you want to squash so much into a couple of weeks, but maybe you like the fast pace, unlike me who likes to sit around soaking up the atmosphere. Well, at least you will have the convenience of speaking at least one Indian language, so that should help you get where and what you want faster.

As for sharing the expenses, there is likely no need to, because India can be very inexpensive, if you dont need it to be fancy. All the moving around you will be doing will up your daily budget though because of train/bus costs, but those cant be shared with a buddy anyway.

Hey Mel.....good to hear back from you.....i know it sounds like a whirlwind trip but you see i am entering the clinical years of dentistry degree from now so wont get 10 days off for the next three and a half years at all...
one more reason to do this trip is that there is a business element attached to it..so i will be meeting people at places and at the same time touring too...
i would have loved to soak up idly for days but academic and financial constraints always bind me...
My tour focus will be Jaisalmer,Jodhpur and bikaner as i have never been there..and pretty excited about these places...
As far as sharing the expense, well accomodation is the only expense i suppose i will be sharing as rest other are individual expense but you see am being a bit stingy here - Money Saved is Money Earned 😉....
Most importantly, a travel buddy to share the experience is what matters most, as am not a loner kind of personality 😊...

Anyways...as of now am travelling to goa on 6th for three days and then to rajasthan...so yeah AM SUPER EXCITED 😊

I am in Goa, It is a place to relax...depends on what you want. Not sure how hot Northern India is and if that is a factor of you. Here it is very hot from late morning to evening, then cools off at night, and of course there is a the Arabian sea to swim in...choices, choices, follow your heart and you can't go wrong😊 Reply to this

...now tell me does it happen to everyone or is it just me who is indecisive...

I think, it happens to a lot of people. There are a bunch of discussions about it here on TravelBlog. People procrastinate not just about where they will go on their trip, but about giving up their jobs, or maybe they should spend the money the trip costs on something their family approves of more, or maybe they wont get a job when they get home, or their boyfriend, girlfriend might find somebody else while they are away...

I generally panic, in case I go on the trip and then discover it means nothing at all to me. I know that seems a bit weird, because it never turns out like that in reality. I love at least some aspect of everyplace I go. I dont think I have ever felt neutral about any place or country, as I fear I will before going there.

I am very apprehensive about my trip overland from Malaysia to accross Sumatra of this August. People say the bus journey is a nightmare. I am wondering if it is beyond what I can tolerate, but then I think it is only a ten hour bus trip, and then I start thinking again that it might turn out to be way more than 10 hours, if everything goes wrong along the way because of its reputation for being nightmarish. And, I will have a 10 year old with me demanding attention no matter how tired and uncomfortable I am.... As well as that, it is actually less expensive to fly, but I want to see the countryside. This reminds me, I will start a discussion soon to ask for tips on how to deal with the difficulties of this bus journey.

Where are you now Anuj? I presume, you decided to do the whirlwind journey? It would be interesting if you would tell us what you find are the pros and cons of a whirlwind trip, from what you are experiencing.

You can also take golden triangle package wich is a shortand sweet trip. That will suit you as your budget. Golden triangle tour include Delhi(Red Fort, India Gate, Qutub Minar) Jaipur( Amer Fort, Jantar Mantar, City Palace, Jaigarh Fort), Agra(Taj Mahal, Red Fort, and Gardens). This will be the best trip for beginners. Reply to this
