HI,

I am traveling to Rajasthan in December and we are trying to decide weather to take a hired car or trains. The key care about is which one makes the best time.

I have train times, however I'm interested to hear from folks that have travelled these legs by car and how long it took. Also what was your experience like.

Jaipur -> Jodhpur
Jodhpur->Jaislimer
Jodhpur->Udaipur

Thanks,
Joe

Much better and more convenient to travel by car. You can stop wherever you wish and see a lot more. Can't give you the hours it takes by car between the cities because we often stopped for pictures. Get a quote from one or two of the reputable agencies like Namaste India Tours and consider hiring a car and driver.

It's closer to five hours between each of the cities now with improved roads.

Last year we travelled by car from Delhi - Jaipur - Jodpur - Jaisalmer - Pushkar before continuing on by train. We had prebooked our hotels so had a destination to head for each night but allowed several days at each major stop, where the driver would then take us to sights if required. Find a driver with good english and it will add a lot of enjoyment to your journey as it will be easier to make him understand what your interests are and what you dont want to do. ie we didn't want to visit every jewellery emporium in Rajasthan but wanted to get out into the countryside
