Best Experience: Lets now get into a bit of details regarding my experience. good and bad both are mentioned as they have to be seen in relation to each other. we were 5 people adults and 2 kids of 3 and 2 yrs, we reached at 6:30PM there was no light on \'Chokhi Dhani Parking\' sign so we parked our car as everybody else near the road. We crossed the road to see \'Parking\' sign but then we had already parked our car. We went into the main gate to see 10-12 people already in line and 60-70 people standing around. My wife got us tickets @350 each, the ticket was a simple reciept with no of people mentioned and time of dinner marked at 10:15 PM. The guard lets us in and we find ourself in mid of people crowd and no knowing what to do. the initial experience feels of a chaotic atmosphere. on right there is a list of things to do-see inside. This is also the worst of experience as there are very very few arrows and I didn saw any guidemap, low wattage lamps also adds o the feeling of confusion. We decided to move left. Later we found that not only us but most of the people were confused where to go? or what way to proceed for dinner etc etc so we walked left and there was a dinner place with chairs and table, a puppet show with so low light and black colour clothed puppets were hardly clearly visible, nearby a place to put mehndi, and a photoshop to get your photo in rajasthani attire, starting 150 Rs/- .a museum, a dance stage opp puppet show, where 2 females were doing rajasthani dance. and then i lost where we went right or left or straight as the walkways are not clearly right or left. we saw a small market there, swings more dances of males and females at different places. palmist, magician, holi programme, elephant ride, camel ride, bhulbhuliya, old style movie box, a large bell with big wodden hammer etc Place to sit down were plenty but its easy to loose people as its dark and searching them needs for fanatic mobile calls. by 8:30 we had seen almost everything and kids were hungry, now the dinner time marked is 10:15, we went to place where there is older way of guest sitting on ground and eating food and the time was marked for it. infact the experience of sitting there is among the best but.....our number will start at 10:15 to line up and may take another 15-20mins to get a place,\'sir you can have dinner at the normal buffet if you want early\' so we went to have dinner at where we do self serving. The food was great specially churma and badam halwa. after dinner we picked our show pieces from shop writing names on rice and head back home.
Worst Experience: infact there were many bad experience which would have gone unnoticed if it was not for a \'5* resort\' so these are the ones, you can decide which is worst *starting fro ticket counter \' Sir whats with royal thali at 650 Rs and normal one at 350 Rs\' It\'s nothing madam the ticket is for 350 and u can get Royal one inside\' My wife felt as if he was avoiding giving the Royal Thali ticket to us. She felt that it was ment only for \'foreigners\' and not for indians and we could not find the option of upgrading inside later * No maps or or very poor directions, confusing layout. * Poorly lit pathways or show places (how many times I have said this?) * Although it written at gate \'tipping is not encouraged\' but everyone wants some tip * Shows start and finishes abruptly and one never knows when to go where, sometimes 2 dance show go together sometimes none is performing. *Camel ride is along the path where people tend to walk and I myself saw atleast 4 incidences in short stay there when people had to literally jump off the way to save them self one of those being my friends sister who was talking on mobile when a camel almost banged into her. It\'s highly dangerous as the speed of camel is also very fast which I believe is to do more rounds and make more money and I myself grown in rajasthan haven seen camels walk so fast normally. * There were no policeman in sight except at gates, even i couldn see official people in field for help nor could i see any \'Exit\' markings which is very very surprising as the place of full of wooden huts and wooden buildings which renders it to be a fire susceptible, no first aid kits or signs or fire fighting equipment seen. * I could clearly make it out that the performers were more \'interested\' in foreigners as they give more tips which to my senses does not feel good
