The best way to explore the royal and rustic cities of Rajasthan is by road. The routing of this program is based on the best flight connectivity between all these sectors. Udaipur has direct flights to Mumbai and Mumbai being a commercial city has direct flights to most of the cities in India. Traffic in the metro cities like Mumbai and Delhi is chaotic, especially during the peak hours. Hence, if you have a flight to catch from metro cities of India, make sure to ask for either an afternoon or a late evening flight. The peak hours are between 8 am & 11 am and 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm on any week day in India. Unlike other cities in this program, the climate in Mumbai is hot and humid throughout the year. Hence, it is advisable to carry cotton clothes even if you are taking a trip to India during winters. The safest brands of mineral water in India are Bisleri & Himalaya.
