All points within the state are connected by both road and rail. While railway connections offer convenient overnighters, reservations are necessary. Most principal road heads are an average five-hour journey apart, making intra-state travel convenient. Scheduled tourist bus services are available, and cars can be hired.
Rajasthan is visitor-friendly. Credit card are accepted in most tourist towns, and certainly at hotels and shops. For visitors wary of the local cuisine, 'continental' cuisine is widely available: where it may fail to be authentic, or come up to gourmet standards, it will most certainly offer the familiar taste of home. Bottled mineral water is widely available. The state has an extensive a network of postal services and banks, as well as telecommunication links with the rest of the world. While it may not lack in modern amenities, Rajasthan's flavour is delightfully medieval- truly a place where time, as the cliche goes, has stood still.
