You can always choose such cars for rent so that travelling with the babies and kids is a safe one.
Book kids friendly hotels
When you are travelling with your family, it is absolutely necessary to book and choose hotels that are kids friendly for the purpose of accommodation. There is no dearth of hotels in Rajasthan but not all of them can boast of kid friendliness. Choose an accommodation that can provide you children with a play ground or a small park to enjoy the late evenings when you come back to the hotel after an extensive day trip. A small playground can make the children happy and relaxed.
Explore the tourist attractions early in the morning
When you have kids in your group, it is important to keep a tab on their comfort levels. It will not be possible for the kids to travel as extensively as you will be able to. So it is always better to choose your travel timings wisely. Try to explore and visit the tourist attractions early in the morning and finish your day trip before the clock hits the 12 noon mark. You can again go out with the kids in the evening after 4 pm as the sun is a bit low at those times and it can make your travel journey a comfortable one for the kids.
The must visit attractions of Rajasthan
When you have kids along with you, there are some must visit places in Rajasthan that you must explore for the happiness of the children. Those places are:
