Undoubtedly a cool city in the sense that the old fort/city rises up dramatically out of the desert. But I was kind of disappointed that the people there were among the least friendly in India. Furthermore it feels more like a tourist city than a living city. Still the architecture is interesting and you can make trips out into the desert from here.

Desert-tinged, dusty, dusky, Jaisalmer is the westernmost landlocked outpost in India. A yellow sandstone fort looming out of the desert like a fantasy castle, the town has some of the nicest people in the whole of India, and makes a perfect base for a camel trip out into the desert to sleep on dunes beneath the stars -- a cliche experience, sure, but one of life's most memorable experiences as well. It's out on the edge of the map, but more than worth the journey. Best of all, the Delhi Express will run you right back to the capital overnight when you've had your fill.

Rising up out of the golden sands of the Rajasthani desert, Jaiselmer is a step back in time. Think arabian nights, with narrow, winding streets, ancient fortresses, camels and men in brightly colored turbans. Jaisalmer is romantic and unforgettable. PS - met my wife here.

A beautiful city built around the famous Jaisalmer Fort, which you won't be able to take enough pictures of. The architecture around here is just stunning, especially with the desert as a backdrop. Stay in one of the hotels in the Fort if you can. Many people choose to organize a "camel safari" out of Jaisalmer, but if you do it out of Jodhpur instead, you're less likely to bump into other tourist groups as you wander the dunes.
