Take a half-day tour of some villages just outside of Jodhpur city. The villagers are famous for their craftsmanship and love of animals. Experience the life of the Bishnoi people, who are very polite and welcome guests with open hearts. The Bishnoi follow very strict principles which include cherishing wild animals and protecting nature. Thus, on this trip you'll spot many blackbucks and chinkaras, which are endangered species. Nearby is the beautiful Guda Lake.
Camp amidst the sand dunes and wilderness. Multiple colourful, safari-style deluxe tents are pitched right in the dunes, which house within them teak furniture, jute rugs, and even tiled bathrooms! As the sun sets, the camping area turns into a rustic lounge of sorts, with low candle-lit tables and mattresses laid out beautifully for an evening accompanied by a three-course dinner, a bit of light chatter, and lots of calm.
Kailana Lake, located on west of the city. This is yet another artificial lake, which was constructed in the year 1872 by Pratap Singh. This is one amongst the most frequented lakes in Rajasthan. You could sail on a boat if you aim to add some breathtaking photographs to your collection. The view of sunset would be stunning.
Go for souvenir shopping at Sardar Market and Nai Sarak which provide plenty of options, from colourful bandhini sarees to embroidered mojris and jootis, to pretty silver jewellery. Jodhpur is also famous for its hand-crafted chiffon sarees with possibly the best badla work in the whole of Rajasthan.
Visit the Umaid Bhawan Palace Museum for a rally of classic cars that were once driven by the Maharajas. Youll find vintage Rolls-Royces, Jaguars, Mercedes, and so many other cars, which are in mint condition.
