How To Get There

How to Reach Jaipur

1. By Air: Air travel to Jaipur is the most convenient way to reach the city. The Jaipur airport is located at Sanganer, which is 12 km from the heart of the city. It has both international and domestic terminals and is well connected to most of the cities across the globe, with a number of airlines operating on a regular basis. Popular carriers like Jet Airways, SpiceJet, Air India, IndiGo and Oman Air have daily flights to Jaipur. Flights to international cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Sharjah and Dubai are also connected from this airport.

2. By Rail: You can travel to Jaipur by trains such as Shatabdi Express, which is air-conditioned, very comfortable and connects Jaipur to many important Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jammu, Jaisalmer, Kolkata, Ludhiana, Pathankot, Haridwar, Bhopal, Lucknow, Patna, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad and Goa. Some of the popular trains are the Ajmer Shatabdi, Pune Jaipur Express, Jaipur Express and Adi SJ Rajdhani. Also, with the advent of the Palace on Wheels, a luxury train, you can now enjoy the royalty of Jaipur even when you are on the move. Operating to, in and around Jaipur, this luxurious ride for a train leaves you in awe.

3. By Road: Taking a bus to Jaipur is a pocket-friendly and convenient idea if you are looking to have a budget holiday. The Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) runs regular Volvo (air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned) and deluxe buses between Jaipur and other cities within the state. When in Jaipur, you can board the bus from Narayan Singh Circle or the Sindhi Camp bus stand. There is a regular service of buses from not just Delhi but other cities like Kota, Ahmedabad, Udaipur, Vadodara and Ajmer. The fare is very reasonable, and you can easily travel on these buses with your families.
