How many ways can you think of reaching a place? Well, all apply when it comes to reaching Jaipur.

If you want to travel by plane, Jaipur serves you with the Jaipur Airport that is situated in the satellite town of Sanganer and offers charter service to London and Dublin along with direct flights to Sharjah, Muscat and Dubai. However, flights to Singapore and Bangkok are available via Delhi. Around 13 km away from the centre of the city, Jaipur Airport also has daily domestic air links with many Indian cities such as Jodhpur, Udaipur, Aurangabad, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Goa, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Mumbai and Indore.

A number of daily trains connect Jaipur to Delhi, Ahmedabad, Agra, Mumbai, Jodhpur, Kota, Alwar and Ajmer along with daily connections that are available for Udaipur, Chittaurgarh, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Barmer, Kolkata, Jammu, Pathankot, Ludhiana, Kanpur, Roorkee, Haridwar, Gwalior, Indore, Jabalpur and Bhopal. Long-distance trains arrive from many other major cities including Lucknow, Allahabad, Banaras, Vadodara, Surat, Nagpur, Bilaspur, Raipur, Patna, Ranchi, Bhubaneswar, Puri, Chennai, Bangalore, Mysore, Hyderabad, Goa, Mangalore, Kozhikode and Kochi. There are three major railway stations Jaipur Junction (main station),Durgapura and Gandhinagar (Jaipur) and all trains stop at Jaipur Junction and a few trains stop at Durgapura and Gandhinagar stations also.

You should always be aware of your surroundings and should take care of your luggage whenever traveling through trains. You should know what duration of time does the train stop at a particular station so that you are not left alone by the train on the station holding two kulads of chai in your hand.

There is a decent and comfortable bus service between Jaipur to Delhi by Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) with buses approximately every half an hour both sides. A/C Volvo costs about INR 600 per seat. From Delhi one can board the bus from Bikaner House on Pandara Road next to India Gate and from Jaipur one can board the bus from Narayan Singh Circle or the main Sindhi Camp bus stand. Express buses to several cities and towns within Rajasthan (such as Kota and Bundi) are also available.

Driving in a car is the most popular way of reaching Jaipur from Delhi. National Highway No. 8 connects Delhi to Jaipur via the industrial township of Gurgaon and takes around 5-6 hours or more to reach. However, there is an ongoing expansion at Behror & Kotputli which attracts blockades and jams and hence adds a little more time to the journey until it is resolved completely. Interestingly, if you start early in the morning, you might beat the traffic and reach faster. There are many car rental services in Delhi which can provide chauffeur driven cars to Jaipur.
