Commutation within Rajasthan

For traveling from one state to another in Rajasthan, there are always Indian Railways that come to your rescue. With train prices as low as car rates, these rail journeys ensure you reach the desired destination early. However, do not expect for the train to spot at the station for you to hop on. You might have to walk a few miles before that. You can also take the buses, but it is not advisable as the journey is pretty long and buses might be uncomfortable for such rides. You can however also hire a car with driver if you want to travel by road. The Rajasthan Tourism Department runs luxury buses if you can afford a little, to travel from one city to another in the state. This is a better option. When you are hiring taxis, make sure you check the meter as some of the drivers may overcharge the tourists. Though railways are a more convenient option, it will always be better to take roadway to not miss the spectacular views of the state. You can take a ride from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer on the car because both rail and airway take longer durations and also it is safe to travel by road to these places.
