Review on Jaisalmer - Golden City with Dehli

After an epic overnight train journey to the middle of the desert, we arrived in Jaisalmer. When we arrived our driver was nowhere to be seen. A tuk tuk driver stated he would take us and we made sure he knew we already had a room booked, but the minute we got into his tuk tuk it was the hard sell to just come look at my guesthouse. No matter how many times we told him we already had booked a room he was insistent we go with him. I phoned our guesthouse from the tuk tuk and when we arrived at the Fort a staff member was waiting for us.

It was a long hot heavy walk up hill to get from the fort gate to our guesthouse, but the scenery along the way was just amazing, and the view from the top? Wow. It was one of the most mesmerizing cities I have been too. Our guesthouse (Surja) was so quaint and built into the wall of the Fort.

We dumped our bags in our rooms and headed out for a wander around the inside of the Fort. I love this place! At lunch time we ended back at Surja lounging on the rooftop with views across the whole city! We spent the rest of the day wandering the fort and ended up at a Haveli for dinner just outside the fort. It had a beautiful view
