Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
We are not big shoppers on holiday, but with hindsight we almost regret not taking full advantage of the wonderful variety of desirable and inexpensive handicrafts, art, jewelry and other goods available (especially in Jaipur).
If you are worried about Delhi Belly, then don't. Sensible precautions like using hand sanitiser before eating, drinking only bottled water etc kept all our group healthy. Chandra always chose well with regard to restaurants so that they were all of a good quality with freshly prepared food. This allowed us to enjoy the food without concern.
It has to be said that July/August is probably not the best time of year to visit Rajasthan, as the heat and humidity can be oppressive. However, the hotel rooms and Mr Singh's air conditioned mini-bus were welcome havens after busy hot days. It was supposed to be Monsoon season while we were there, but we only saw rain a couple of times as the rains were late this year. Other travellers may not be as lucky as we were.
This holiday was excellent for older teenagers and adults, but maybe less suitable for younger travellers who may also find the long journeys hard to bear.
Don't expect to see tigers in summer!
