Pushkar is a pretty rad place , i mean it totally depends what kinda vibe you wanna be in, i mean for a hippy kinda vibes it is also a perfect fit, if you are a religious person then it is a good option aswell, ohh yeah, if you are into spirituality then yes it is also a good option, Commuting is easy in pushkar, just walk it is very small town, you will find multiple vendors who will sell you scooty and bikes, it is usually affordable (200-300 PER DAY), negotiate it , that is the protocol you have to follow every where traveling in india, so bargain your way up the DOMINANCE HIERARCHY , haha that’s what Jordan Peterson would have said!!
Anyways pushkar is a part of ajmer district and the main ajmer city , the railway station and the bus area is just 15km from the heart of pushkar city , in ajmer you can use OLA APP or UBER APP to book cabs and they are pretty swift and most of the driver can speak lil bit english , just use keywords dont use grammar that is a TIP that will always work in india, if you are not an INDIAN and you are a FOREIGNER , then while dealing with taxi drivers, cooks, non-skilled workers, blue collar worker etc use keywords to communicate , in india people speak lot of languages i mean 29 states with 1.3 BILLION POPULATION, so we do got lot of local dialects and this is kinda daunting task for any traveler to be well versed with any one of em.
Pushkar is a beautiful town, if you love peace then GO ON OFF SEASONS like all the time APART FROM OCT – NOV- DEC – JAN , apart from this only during HOLI or DIWALI the PRICES ARE HIGH, else the prices to stay in pushkar is darn affordable, i mean you can find good clean hostels at a good price as well as you can find super clean and good view private rooms at a good price aswell.
So you have lot of affordable options to stay, and once you are settled , you can have food basically in most parts of the town , small restaurant through the market area as well in the narrow lanes, the lane are kinda narrow with lot of traffic, dont take car inside, i mean you can it is totally legal but it will 100% create a traffic jam. The main town area has few good roof top restaurants, i have been to most of them , quality is kinda same everywhere , pizza is good in few restaurants .
