Rupa and Himanshu – Agra, Udaipur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Pushkar and Ranakpur
Given all the choices on earth Rupa and Himanshu opted for India as their honeymoon destination.
Visited: Agra, Udaipur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Pushkar and Ranakpur
Stayed at: Shikarbadi hotel in Udaipur, Pal Haveli in Jaipur, Hotel Rang Mahal in Jaisalmer
Given all the choices on earth we opted to go to India for our honeymoon. We started out visiting both our families and grandparents and then we went to Udaipur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Pushkar and Ranakpur in Rajasthan as well as Agra for 10 days.
All through our trip we stayed at ancestral Royal properties which have been converted into hotels.
We loved the experience of the traditional village at Chokidhani in Jaipur, the camel rides in the sand dunes in Jaisalmer and all the Royal Palaces in Udaipur. I waited my whole life to see the Taj Mahal and I recommend everyone to see it at least once in their lifetime. It was a phenomenal experience.
My advice to other couples
Seeing Rajasthan by road on our own terms, in privacy and stopping anywhere we wanted whenever we wanted was quite a treat. We kept running into the Palace on Wheels group in different cities and its definitely a very …herd and regimented environment. Its great for families traveling with kids, but not so great for honeymooning couples seeking some time with each other.
