Rajasthan Travel Information
You should have a valid visa to enter India. Nationals of Bhutan & Nepal
only needs identification. You can obtain visa from your nearest Indian
consulates. Usually a multi entry visa for a period of 120 days is granted
to tourists. Visa fee vary according to Nationality. Always keep photocopies
of important documents like passport, visa and other documents.
What to take
All the usual stuff you need when you travel. Be light, you can always purchase
something you forget. But still you should bring the following for Rajasthan:
- Loose fitting, light cotton cloths are ideal for days wear, women should
wear ankle length cloths.
- Sweater, sandals, thongs, cotton hats, sunglasses, T-shirts, sun screen
- Medicines (includes inhalers and anti malaria drugs), toiletries are available
- Budget Travelers may need Sleeping bags, ear plugs, good padlocks, mosquito
net, heavy-duty chain for securing luggage.
It is relatively safe for women to travel around, but your privacy rarely
respected. Staying safe is a matter of common sense. There is special ladies
queue and also separate railway compartments. But, still you might be harassed
and touching up. Best way is to avoid eye contacts, never stay late out
side, and wear decent cloths (try the local dress called salwar kameez,
very cheap and practical)
Traveling with children
Children of all ages are welcomed, being greeted with warmth. Winter is
recommended when traveling with children. Diarrhoea and vomiting are the
most common problems, so take the usual precautions. Also take enough sun
cream, as in winter also the days are quite hot. Avoid tap water, only mineral
water (of good company) is recommended.
