Jaisalmer, India


executive summary by darmansjah

An exotic city standing in the heart of the Thar Desert and marked by an imposing 250-foot 12th century fort, Jaisalmer, or “The Golden City”, is truly one of the most breathtaking spots in Rajasthan. Next to the fort, the desert is Jaisalmer’s other attraction – no tour is complete without a safari to the Sam Sand Dunes.

Kicking off in Jaisalmer on April 1, the Jet Airways 2012 Fun Run series is part of Jet Airways’ initiative to showcase the fascinating sights and sounds of India by staging it in various exotic locations around India. The 15 kilometre route takes runners from the Poonam stadium, through key scenic spots, and on to the Amar Sagar Village poised on the edge of the beautiful Amar Sagar Lake. The 8D/7N itinerary also includes sight-seeing tours and a camel ride in the Thar Desert within full view of the fort.

From Singapore, the Jaisalmer Desert Fort Run package, within a choice of departures on 28/29 March and returning on 4/5 april, starts at US$1,355 per person (runevents.jetairways.com). independent travelers can fly to Jodhpur from Delhi and then take a car or train to Jaisalmer.

Built to resemble a palace within a fort, Suryagarh is a plush oasis with all the modern amenities you need and don’t need. Its location away from the city bestows guests with an uncommon and enchanting privacy (from US$195; suryagarh.com).
