From Jaipur, better option for 2 days - Agra or Jodhpur
Save

Hi all,

We are travelling to Jaipur on 1st Oct. We will spend 2 days exploring Jaipur. Then we have 2 days open from 3rd to 5th Oct before coming back to Jaipur and fly out from here.

My initial plan was to spend additional day in Jaipur, then do 1 night trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. However, considering Covid scenario and that Agra is in a different state, is it advisable as there may be issues crossing state borders?

Or should we change plan to do 2 days in Jodhpur?

We are group of 5 including my wife, parents who are senior citizens and my 3 year old daughter.

If you arrive on the 1st and leave on the 5th you really have only 3 days on 2/3/4 for sightseeing in Jaipur. You could add a day trip to Samode or Abhaneri but should really not add another city as you have seniors with you.

Agra is a safe destination with direct air/rail connectivity with Bangalore. Also, there is no strict checking when you travel by road. You won't be having any trouble if you carry an RTPCR test report/vaccination certificate.

You may either come to Agra and then to Jaipur and fly out from there or arrive Jaipur then to Agra and then fly out to Bangalore.

Hi Nikhil,

Thanks for your response. Actually we are part of a larger group of 3 more couples who are doing some other activity from 3rd to 5th. The 5 of us need to spend some time before we join back on 5th. So my thought was to do some other city in the mean time, and considering Agra, we just want to do Taj mahal thought we could do 1 night in Agra and spend 1 night in Jaipur.

However, due to covid regulations which keep changing, if crossing state borders becomes difficult, does it make sense to stay in Rajasthan and do something else, like going to Jodhpur and see Mehrangarh and other sights for 2 nights.

There are no restrictions in Agra and you can travel. Keep in mind Taj is closed on Friday.

Hey Neelay T

When you traveling throw road, there is not much restrictions in Rajasthan & UP. Take the vaccine or carry RT-PCR negative reports with you for hustle free travel. Make your itinerary like arrive in one city & departure from another city. Doing this you will save travel time.

You can do overnight trip to Agra easily from Jaipur. Or after Jaipur, you can also travel to Jodhpur or Udaipur and depart from there. Or other way around. Advise you to book Decent cab with local experience driver. Take care.

Thanks & Regards

If you have not been to the Taj then you should definitely include Agra for & night stay but it will be around ' hours drive each way. Also visit Fatehpur Sikri en route.
