Customer Travel Tip: Camel safari with a night in the desert, really fun and worth it. Take any tour, also the cheap "touristic" tours you're getting offered.

Liked: It is a quiet and touristic town, very different form cities like Jaipur, Jodhpurs or Delhi. So if you have enough from getting hassled or honking tuktuks, go to Jaisalmer and make a camel safari into the desert.

Disliked: No

Customer Travel Tip: Don't stay in a hoel inside the fort as the place is suffering huge environmental problems, in partcular water. There are nice guest houses just outside wth great views (like Roop Mahul) making less impact on this beautiful place.

Liked: It's much more relaxed than many other places in Rajasthan. It's easy to get around as the fort is the main attraction with hotels in or close by. It's a very attractive place and a good place to chill out for a few days.

Disliked: This is the most hassle-free place I've been to in Rajasthan, so nothing to dislike.
