India is a fascinating country, and after fearing going there alone as a solo female traveler, now I would go back to India again to visit many other interesting cities. One of the states I would really like to visit is the Rajasthan, that’s why today share some ideas on how to enjoy Rajasthan given by Selfish Travel.
Here’s the point of view from Tina at Selfish Travel:
I liked the historical building(monuments) and spicy street food of the different corner of India..Would you advice other female travelers to go?
My advice would be to cover the arms and legs at the religious places and learn to bargain
