Sardargarh Heritage Hotel

Sardargarh Heritage Hotel is one of the best Heritage hotels in india. There are many Hotels in Rajasthan but sardargarh is special as it is an ancient fort turned into Hotel. It Is finest comfortable Resort in India. Sardargarh, one of the magnificent forts of Rajasthan, is an extravagant creation by men of a bygone era, placed amidst the mountains and deep forests of Chuppun. Sardar Singh, one of the most powerful Dhodhias, built the Sardargarh Fort during 1738 to 1743. You can see the ramparts of the mystery filled Sardargarh, like a great ship anchored at outer sea, much before you get close to the gigantic walls soaring high above the low lying village of Lawa. Magnificent fort of Sardargarh is situated 94km north from Udaipur.

best time to visit... places to see... food...

Hi guys, We, bunch of 4 are planning to visit Rajasthan somewhere in June. But later doing some research I found that that is not the best time. So, I just want to know what is the best time to visit Rajasthan. Next question is, we are planning to be there for about 7-10 days. So, what are the best places to visit while we are there and which place is the best one to be there long. May be we plan to visit Jaisalmer which is i havde heard quite hot but not sure... What is the food we get to eat there? Just Rotis? And which are the good hotels to be there? Please give me some suggestions...

Thx all!

I***** have never been to India before, and will be travelling there for the first time in December with my 4 children. I have alot of questions!

I will be travelling to India (Delhi, Jaipur, Udaipur, Agra, Mumbai, Goa & Kerala) for the first time this December/January. I will be accompanied by my husband our three children (ages: 9, 7 and 1). The first part of the trip will include more of the Northern "tourist" spots, and the second part will be spent visiting Southern India. Does anyone have any advice/guidance related to travelling in India with young children? Some of my questions include: (1) do I need to bring a car seat for the baby? (2) how much should I worry about purity of food/water? (3) should I bother to bring a stroller? (4) Is it worthwhile to invest in things like water purifiers, mosquito nets, etc.? I want to make sure the children stay healthy and safe, and at the same time have a wonderful experience that they'll remember for the rest of their lives. P.S. I have already taken the children to their physician, and they are all set with immunizations and other medications.

I am not sure if it is better to buy a used tri-band phone in the US and bring it to India or just buy one there? I know there are several threads on this, however I am not sure what is best after reading many of them.

I am not sure if it is better to buy a used tri-band phone in the US and bring it to India or just buy one there? Can I actually get a new phone in India for cheap - around Rs.1500? Or do you really need to do a lot of shopping and negotiating? Do they sell them in airports or are the costs very much inflated there? I will have to fly to Delhi, then to Chennai, then take a train for about 8 hours. I am a little nervous about not having a phone for all of that travel until I reach my destination where I could buy one. I could purchase a phone in Delhi's airport, however I understand that all of my calls would be "roaming" as I would no longer be in Delhi. Alternatively, I could wait until I arrive at the final destination (where I will be for several weeks) and buy a phone there. Or, I could purchase a phone in the US and get a basic card as soon as I get the chance. I would be able to get a good used phone for about $45 USD. I would greatly appreciate any advice, experience or recommendations.

Honeymoons Require Careful Planning

When planning a honeymoon, you need to start researching options at least six months prior to the wedding. Setting a budget and choosing a destination takes time and lots of consideration before most couples come to an agreement. Start researching by visiting different forums and reading what others have to say about the destinations you are considering. Think about the time of year you will be traveling. Weather is always an important factor. Are you going to be in the Caribbean during hurricane season? You need to have alternate plans in case of last minute weather warnings. Whether you try to plan your honeymoon on your own or you choose a travel agent, always double check your documents for correct name spelling and make sure all documentation requirements, such as passports, have been specified.
